With Microsoft Project Standard 2010 project management software, managers can stay informed and control project work, schedules, and finances; keep project teams aligned; and be more productive through comprehensive reporting, guided planning, and flexible tools.

Managers can enter and view task data in a variety of Gantt charts, in network diagrams, in entry sheets, and in forms; resource data in sheets, forms, and graphs; and assignment data by task or resource. They can also track the progress of projects, monitor variances between project estimates and actual figures, and maintain historical records for better future planning.

The 2010 version of Project adds the Fluent user interface, which simplifies navigation by replacing menus and toolbars with a set of task-based tabs known as the Ribbon. Support for adding dynamic columns, enhanced copy and paste, and other Excel-like features have been added to make Project sheets easier to use. The new Timeline View, a graphical project timeline that's easy to read, can be shared with others through email or in presentations while retaining its formatting.

Project's scheduling engine can forecast the date of a task based on various factors, like dependencies, duration, and constraints. If automatic calculations aren't required, the user-controlled scheduling option allows for complete scheduling control in a given project, overriding the scheduling engine as well as allowing fields to be empty for uncertainties in planning.

Project Standard cannot be connected to Project Server 2010 and integrated into the Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM) solution. Organizations that need these capabilities must use Project Professional 2010.

32-Bit and x64 Versions: The installation media for this product include two sets of DVDs and can be used for either 32-bit or x64 systems.

Important Volume Licensing Information: With Project 2010, organizations can choose between two types of volume license keys for product activation: a Key Management Service (KMS) license key or a Multiple Activation Key (MAK). Organizations will be provided with both types of keys on the Microsoft Volume Licensing website.

Microsoft recommends KMS activation only for organizations with at least 50 networked computers requiring activation for Project 2010 or requiring activation for a combination of Project 2010, Office 2010, and Visio 2010 software. Organizations with fewer than 50 computers requiring activation or organizations with non-networked computers should activate their products using a MAK. For help deciding which type of key to use, Microsoft offers instructions on how to use a MAK or KMS key to activate volume editions of Office 2010 software, which also applies to Project 2010.

Software Assurance: Under the Software Assurance program, you have the right to install any new release of products covered in the agreement during the term of your coverage.
