Publishing the Plan

Promising Work


Construction projects are complex, and delays are expensive. With so many moving pieces it's crucial for teams to come together to form a clear, holistic understanding of how the project and each individual section is progressing towards targets. In Aphex plans are Published to create reliable records of performance without the hassle and chaos of that typical weekly deadline. These Publications are complete stored records of project data that can be accessed from the Planner App with all the functionality of your Gantt and Maps, excluding the ability to edit the record - much more powerful than those PDF print-outs!

Project Admins set a project's Publishing Target, controlling the weekly cadence of the planning cycle and giving the entire team visibility and automatic reminders of the deadline the project is working towards. Admins are also in control of Required Fields that gives teams a clear understanding of the level of detail expected in their plans and a check-list of actions to work through before Readying their Plans.

In Aphex plans are Published to generate reliable, uneditable records of project plans that are shared to the wider team or used as comparative baselines of progress. Only Project Admins can generate Published Versions

Next Scheduled Publication

Your project's Next Scheduled Publication can be found at the top of Publications, accessible from your left-hand Sidebar. Here you'll find a summary of the project's Lookahead and visibility of the state of the upcoming submission.

You can track the team's individual sections of the plan, whose section has been Made Ready and where there are any issues in the plan that need resolving: Clashes and Missing Data.

Publishing the Plan

Project Admins can Publish the plan at any point from the Publish button. There is nothing stopping the Publishing of plans, any Late Submissions and issues (Clashes and Missing Data) will be recorded against the Published Version.

Promising Work

When Publishing the plan you have the option of Promising Tasks in the plan up to a Promised Date. Promised Tasks have a Promised Status and become locked-down, in doing so teams commit (promise!) to achieve future plans, if work in the plan up to the Promised Date is edited teams will be prompted to record reasons for delay.

Promising Tasks can be reverted using the Clear All Promised Flags button in the top right of Publications.
