Central Capacity Planning (CCP) is an individual development that emerged during my work for Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. It allows real-time-based, cross-location visual task planning, taking into account time zones as well as presence and absence times.
Together with another colleague this software package, consisting of client and server application, various interfaces and auxiliary programs for monitoring, was developed over several years (202-2007) in the programming language C# in VisualStudio.NET (starting with version 1.0 beta) and P/SQL.
The first versions of CCP looked quite modern for that time – but the UI layer, which was mainly designed and implemented by me, was still very “shaky” in handling and slow – a side effect of the fact that I started to learn the programming language when the project started and we had to struggle with a beta version of the brand new VisualStudio.NET.
CCP was created as the successor of the “Online Capacity Board” (OCB), which I developed back in 2001 in object-oriented (yes, that was already rudimentary) PHP. Exciting detail: The frontend was generated as XML and transformed to HTML using XSL and the then innovative Sablotron extension.
