In order to utilize Primavera P6 to create and manage a comprehensive project schedule, you first need to create a project and add important metadata. In this hands-on training, we will start by working through the New Project Wizard to create a new project and setting basic project details. We will then work on creating a Work Breakdown Structure and adding activities to it. Using the Activity Details section, we will look at the different activity types and details in order to create a dynamic project schedule. Then we will identify logical activity relationship ties to best implement the sequence of work to be performed. Lastly, we will cover using the Schedule tool to perform the Critical Path Method of Scheduling, which will give each activity early and late start and finish dates. By the end of this course, you will have all the knowledge required to create a functional schedule to track all of your project’s work - along with tips and tricks to do it as efficiently as possible.
