Abstract

While traditional project planning approaches focus on precise scheduling of tasks, the ESSENCE standard proposes a higher-level approach that focuses on monitoring. Hence, a new kind of process visualization that picks up ideas of Kanban boards and physical cards is sketched in the standard. This tool paper presents a dashboard application refining, extending, and implementing these ideas based on five use cases posed by two industry partners. It demonstrates that a high degree of support for project management can be achieved by using a relatively small set of visualization means.
