• Track progress according to resource work. Your resources can tell you how much time they've spent on their tasks for a given week and how much more time they will need. This tracking can help you make any necessary adjustments to keep the project moving in the right direction. Recording actual progress data also captures historical information that will be invaluable for future projects.

• Record the use, cost, and consumption of materials in your project. These details can help you monitor your budget performance as well as give you advance notice as to when you need to reorder supplies.

• Exchange task assignments, task updates, progress information, and status reports with your resources, via Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 and Microsoft Office Project Web Access 2003.

• Make sure that all tasks are assigned to a responsible and accountable resource, so nothing inadvertently slips through the cracks to be forgotten until it's too late.
