Primavera _ Greg Horsfall _ Pixel perfect project reporting from P6.pdf

  1. 1. Pixel  Perfect  Project  Repor/ng   from  P6     Greg  Horsfall   For-or  Global  Pty  Ltd   17th  August,  2011   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  2. 2. Pixel  Perfect  Project  Repor-ng  from  P6    INTRODUCTION   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  3. 3. Introduc-on  •  Primavera  Australia  Pty  rebranded  to  For-or  aGer  3  acquisi-ons  •  Growth  in  sales  and  implementa-ons  of  Oracle  Primavera   solu-ons,  as  For-or  Global  is  bigger  than  when  as  Primavera   Australia  •  Hiring  on  average  3  staff  /  month  •  Privately  owned  Australian  company  •  22  years  in  opera-on  •  Largest  Primavera  prac-ce  in  the  world  •  Over  1,300  Australian  customer  organisa-ons  •  99%  of  the  customers  supported  directly  by  For-or  Global  •  Biggest  Primavera  training  organisa-on  in  the  world  •  Oracle  Pla-num  Partner  -­‐    Cer-fied  Primavera  Specialists       The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  4. 4. Pixel  Perfect  Project  Repor-ng  from  P6    THE  3  RULES  FOR  REPORT  WRITING   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  5. 5. The  3  Rules  for  Report  Wri-ng  •  RULE  1   –  Know  thy  data  •  RULE  2   –  Know  thy  repor-ng  tool  •  RULE  3   –  Maintain  a  library  of  reports     The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  6. 6. Rule  1  –  Know  thy  data  •  Primavera  P6  EPPM  data  in  the  actual  PMDB  database  since  year  dot  i.e.   version  V1.5  back  in  1999  and  in  V1.6,  V3.5.1,  V4.0,  V5.0,  V6.0,  V6.1,   V6.2.1,  V7.0  and  even  V8.0  (aka  P6  R8)  only  contains  70%  of  your  data   needs     –  You  will  NOT  find  all  fields  e.g.  dura-ons,  %completes  as  it  is  only   calculated  when  needed  by  P6  soGware   –  You  WILL  find  them  in  the  ERD  (P6  Enterprise  Repor-ng  Data   Warehouse  –  if  you  have  it)  •  BUT  ….  in  P6  R8.1  we  have  it  all,  and  more,  in  the  P6  EPPM  database   –  the  data  has  been  deliberately  structured  and  named  for  easy   repor-ng  including  addi-onal  hierarchy  data  structures  to  navigate   just  for  repor-ng!   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  7. 7. Rule  2  –  Know  thy  repor-ng  tool  •  So  we  learnt  how  to  use  the  Report  Wizard  in  P6  windows  client  •  We  discovered  the  ‘Use  Current  Screen’  op-on  in  the  Tools  menu  •  Some  of  us  have  even  mastered  the  ‘Modify’  bujon  that  launches  the  P6   Report  Editor  into  the  wonderland  of  the  repor-ng  canvas  •  For  those  of  use  embracing  the  web,  we  can  run  reports  in  the  P6  web  in   My  Reports  and  Project  Reports  portlets  but  are  limited  to  genera-ng   HTML  output  only  with…   –  No  page  headings,  no  page  breaks,  very  limited  formakng  op-ons  •  We  know  it  has  NO  calculated  fields,  NO  embedded  graphics,  NO  run-­‐-me   parameters,  so..   –  We  created  extracts  to  spreadsheets     –  We  installed  the  SoGware  Development  Kit  hoping  that  would  help   –  We  used  and  probably  s-ll  use  dubious  excel  spreadsheets  and  macros  to  get   the  repor-ng  needed  •  BUT…  along  came  BI  Publisher  10g  and  11g  capability  in  P6  R8.1       The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  8. 8. Rule  3  –  Maintain  a  library  of  reports  •  So  we  get  a  prebuilt  library  of  over  100  reports  in  PMDB  (to  use  copy  and   change)  •  We  copy,  change  and  use  these  only  with  the  P6  windows  client  •  We  lean  how  to  copy  any  components  inside  these  reports  to  reuse  into   other  reports  and  start  sharing  using  imports  and  exports  to  grow  the   library  and  our  skills,  some  of  us  even  ajend  For-or’s  P6  Repor-ng   Wri-ng  training  •  We  could  become  a  bit  frustrated  if  someone  else  deletes  our  report,  so   we  started  to  export  these  as  .erp  files  and  save  them  into  our  own   libraries  on  our  personal  drives  •  BUT…  along  came  BI  Publisher  10g  and  11g  capability  in  P6  R8.1  with  a   new  (addi-onal)  report  repository  of  30+  pixel  perfect  reports  including   new  security  features.  The  library  contains  samples  to  build  on  and  copy   from.       The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
