Optimizing Using Project Dependencies

Project dependencies are important when you want to optimize portfolios and keep selected groups of Projects together or select one Project or another (but not both) or select both Projects or neither Project. Optsee® lets you select sets of project dependencies using the Project Dependency Set Form so you can easily try different dependency constraints in your optimizations.

After you have created one or more dependency sets you can use them in optimizations.

When the optimization is complete, the results are displayed in the Optimization Results form. You can view the results of the dependency constraints in the Optimization Results form by clicking the blue toggle button on the form.

Comparing the “Middle Cost and Resources” (without dependencies) in the “Base” column and the “Middle with Dependencies” in the “Last” column easily shows you which projects were selected or rejected with the dependency constraints added.
