Once an initial baseline schedule is finalized and the project begins, updates to the schedule should be done on a regular basis to maintain a record - normally on a monthly or weekly basis. In this session, we will outline the process of performing a standard status update in Primavera P6. Using the Progress Spotlight tool, we will look at identifying activities and updating their statuses by adding actual dates, costs, and units. Once the activities have been scheduled, we will look at creating additional baselines to save a copy of the project and moving the data date forward. Once we have several baselines created, we will cover how to use the Schedule Comparison tool to compare the actual activity dates with their planned dates. This will determine whether the project is progressing early, late, or just on time.
