What is Fixed?

Fixed is a unique Project and Product Management tool that adds much greater assistance and value than current PM systems. It takes your plans in Jira or Trello and dynamically and automatically simulates your entire plan of work, generating and regenerating estimates for timing and costs.

Fixed uses advanced simulation logic to report the projected timing and cost of all aspects of your project, from the current round of work to the future roadmap.

In a few clicks, simply connect Fixed to your existing Jira or Trello projects, and it will work its magic. There is no need to change the way your team works and you only need a Fixed subscription for the PM or scrum master.

Convert hours of laboriously exporting and analysing your project data, to seconds generating a detailed and accurate dynamic roadmap. Report progress with confidence and be alerted the instant you are off track.

Try it out - it's currently free and there's a demo project to use if you don't have one of your own.

Our user stories

As a Product Manager, I want to have a roadmap dynamically generated for me based on the current state of the tasks and team so that I can quickly and confidently report and track the product plan.

As a Project Manager or Scrum Master, I want to immediately see the effects of a change to scope in the short and medium-term so that I can, in a timely fashion, react and adjust to stay on track or adjust the plan.

As a Manager, I want my Product Managers and Project Managers to use a tool generating accurate, real-time tracking of the roadmap so that I am confident I understand how we are tracking to the plan and the issues being encountered and adjusted for.

As a Developer, I want to have the plan managed by an accurate and agile Project Management system so that I am confident that everyone in the organisation has reasonable expectations and understanding of both the original plan as well as the inevitable adjustments needed as development and learning progresses.

Progress tracking and alerts when off-track

  • You don't need to chase up your people daily to update progress and effort remaining
  • We do it automatically through daily emails where they can report these things with one click
  • Based on these, we revise how your sprint, project and roadmap is going and update you with the new timings
  • You can customise updates for different levels of management
  • Alerts can be programmed for when the targets deviate too much

Delivery dates and costs for the short, medium and long term

  • As the team makes progress and you encounter learnings and new ideas, the timelines react and update
  • These are presented as dynamic timeline views for the current phase, and future phases of your roadmap
  • The further out, the less certainty, and that's OK; Fixed is a tool to manage and refine your "best guess"

Agile adjustments of scope to meet deadlines

  • Just because you have a deadline or fixed budget doesn't mean you can't be Agile
  • If you have a project constraint, Fixed gives you a continuous and accurate view of how well you're meeting it
  • Scope Manager tool gives you a visual view of the remaining scope with the size and priority of each component
  • Using Scope Manager, your Product Owner can adjust scope in an Agile way to continue within the bounds of the deadline or budget

Allocation of resources

  • No need to allocate individuals upfront to get an estimate of the timeline
  • Tell us the skills required, and available, and we will level tasks across skills
  • Any time the plan is updated we dynamically regenerate the optimised allocations

Estimations

  • See all your unestimated items
  • Easily update them in bulk
  • Estimation assistant makes sure you consider all aspects, including development, testing, fixes and deployment
  • Estimate your whole plan of work and track and adjust these to be more accurate as time goes on

Quote for contracts with confidence

  • You can use Fixed to confidently respond to an RFP with a proposal of the cost and time
  • But you can still be Agile! Inevitably learnings and ideas will influence the scope
  • Use the Scope Manager to guide the customer through decisions to include or exclude items or accept a new timeline or budget
  • This empowers the customer and removes the pressure on you to "just squeeze this in"
