Primavera P6 Tips and Tricks

Using these Primavera P6 tips and tricks can help you get more out of the software and more efficiently. 

  1. Use the "Group and Sort" feature to organize and view your project data in a more meaningful way. This feature allows you to group activities by different criteria such as WBS, resources, or activity codes.

  2. Use the "Layout" feature to create custom views of your project data. This feature allows you to create customized views that show only the data that you need to see, such as a Gantt chart view, a resource histogram view, or a network diagram view.

  3. Use the "Baselines" feature to save a snapshot of your project schedule at a specific point in time. This feature allows you to compare the current schedule with the original schedule, or with a previous schedule, to see how the project has progressed.

  4. Use the "Reports" feature to generate a wide range of pre-built and custom reports. This feature allows you to create reports that show project progress, resource usage, and other important data in a clear and concise format.

  5. Use the "Global Change" feature to make changes to multiple activities at once. This feature allows you to update the duration, resources, or other data for multiple activities at the same time, saving you time and effort.

  6. Use the "Activity Usage Profile" feature to view the resource usage for a specific activity over time. This feature allows you to see how the resource usage for a specific activity changes over the course of the project.

  7. Use the "EPS" feature to view the project structure by using an organizational breakdown structure. This feature allows you to see how the activities of the project are related to the different levels of the organization.

  8. Use the "Resource Availability" feature to view the available resources over time. This feature allows you to see when resources are available, and when they are already assigned to other activities.

  9. Use the "Custom fields" feature to add custom data fields to the activities. This feature allows you to add specific data fields that are important for your project, and to use them for filtering and grouping activities.

  10. Use the "Earned Value Analysis" feature to measure the project's performance by comparing the actual progress to the planned progress. This feature allows you to see the performance of the project in terms of schedule, cost, and scope, and to make adjustments if needed.
