What is Arena Projects?
Arena Projects is a cloud-based, high-level project management solution with easy-to-use scheduling and task assignment capability. The schedule is linked to the product record at all schedule levels, allowing global collaboration around items, changes, files, and tasks. Comprehensive reporting supports a generation of detailed project metrics across different product lines.
What does it do?
Projects allows Arena PLM users to flexibly track project progress through customizable phases with assignable milestones and tasks, so that projects are finished efficiently and on time. Referencing links to items, changes, files, requests, and even other Arena projects gives users the ability to confirm task completion by seeing direct updates to the product record in context.
Global collaboration through schedule notes and detailed statuses keeps teams aligned. Full reporting of all project data across the workspace allows users to pull data for detailed cross-project analysis.
