VisiCorp was founded in 1976 by Dan Fylstra and Peter R. Jennings as Personal Software, because of the success of VisiCalc, in 1982 the company was renamed "VisiCorp".
VisiSchedule was an Automatic Project Scheduling & Job Costing program, that replaces hand drawn (and erased) time line schedules with printed ones. It is based on Critical Path Method. It treats a project as a series of jobs, each with a name, duration, capital cost, mix of manpower and a list of jobs that must be completed first. The program uses this information to link all the jobs together into an overall project schedule. It could be used in, for example, the construction industry, research projects, product announcement campaigns and product development.
It shows the skill levels, costs and critical path in your project's tasks. It allocates all costs, specifies earliest and latest start dates, slack times, holidays, prerequisites and deadlines for each task. It produces comprehensive summaries, calendar time charts,milestone and other reports. Data can be transferred to other Visi programs using the DIF format.
VisiSchedule was written in UCSD PASCAL and used its run-time system. It uses the Apple II facilities to set up menus and control a cursor using the arrow keys.
