DPR stands for Daily Progress Report, which helps in daily project analysis. It helps in project planning to final project execution.

Daily progress reports are always crucial when you want to achieve your goals, execute all the activities right on the plan, check, and analyze the resources used for your project. All the numbers and stats of your progress helps you to move in the right direction and plan accordingly. Progress report helps you to maintain the project deadline so that you can deliver the value of the project at the right time. The daily progress report becomes easier to analyze when all the details of the project are put together. And it is possible only in ERP software, where the dashboard works like a 360-degree view that shows you the reports on a broader scale in one software system. The unique interactive DPR has it all when it comes to analyzing the project while considering each detail, every equipment, and all the labor used in particular project activity so that you have all the information already ready to compare with the original plan immediately.

These are the 6 must-have factors in Interactive DPR that helps you execute the project right with an actual plan:

1. Percent wise data (no need to look at big numbers):

The Common phenomenon of any project is that it always has to deal with big project data with big numbers. Surely big numbers look very impressive from the business point of view. But it only put a project manager in bewilderment as he/she has to manage the entire project based on huge numbers. And interactive DPR makes it easy for a project manager to understand the status and lifecycle of the project because the data regarding the project is mentioned in percentage.  The percentage is the easiest metric in this world to measure anything in the simple term. The In-progress stage of every project activity, mentioned in percentage in ERP software, gives a quick idea to the project manager about the status of the project. Hence the planning and implementation of the project go in the right direction without having to look at big numbers.

2. Segment wise data:

Every detail of the project matters a lot to complete the project on time. We all know that every project has its subprojects and sub-activities, so all the data and its details are going to be immense. Here is where Interactive DPR in ERP helps in segmentation of the entire project and lets you assign resources to each activity of the project, giving you more space and time to manage the project from scratch. Such DPR helps you to track the progress of each task and remark for the same.

3. Identifying loopholes

Delays in the project are essential to be tracked as soon as possible. It is a time-consuming task to track the delays of all the activities, especially in case of large scale project. Delay in each operation causes a project to cross the deadline required to achieve specific goals. That's where Interactive DPR in ERP notifies you of the delay in tasks. E.g., If there are any delays in certain activities from a construction project, then the project employee can specify the later date for completion of the particular activity and define the reason for such delay. A project manager can analyze the reason for the delay whether there is a delay in delivery of materials, labor strike, or poor quality of inventories are obtained. It helps the project manager to find and treat all the loopholes that occurred due to delays.

4. Remark for every activity:

The task of monitoring all the project activities with the assigned resources becomes informatively clear to the project manager when the remarks related to all the details of project tasks and resources are appropriately displayed together. A remark gives more insight into how much materials have been used, how many labors have been used, and what other important details have project employee mentioned.  A remark for the delay is more helpful as it contains the reason for the delay, which helps a project manager to find out any gap in the project lifecycle and fill the same with an appropriate solution.

5. Resources used:

Resources play a crucial role in powering any project. Resources in any project are optimally utilized when they are appropriately tracked in terms of their use, quantity, and time for usage. Interactive DPR lets you assign the resources, i.e., labor and equipment for each subproject. It helps in allocating the right resources in the right place, which always results in optimum utilization of resources.

6. Virtual / Visual Information: 

The presentation of data matters a lot when it comes to assessing the critical numbers and information regarding the project. The information presented in a visually appealing design template always looks clear and engaging. Interactive DPR in ERP shows the data in graphical and vector design with the right style of font which becomes easily viewable as soon as the DPR is opened in ERP.
