I'm a civil engineer getting into project management. One of the issues our department is having is how to effectively track the progress of our jobs. We want to keep an accurate up to date record of items which need to be completed within a given project. This would serve as a task list of sorts with milestone dates. It would also hope to serve as a document we could show our client to keep them aware of the progress on the job. The solution that everyone seems to be proposing is using Microsoft Word and Excel documents to do this. I feel there must be better ways to do this than using those programs. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this? I have never use Microsoft Project, but that seems to be a good program to look into. I want to use something that is versatile, yet at the same time keeps it simple and uncluttered. I would appreciate any input you may have.
