    • Exercise No: 3 (Please continue from the Exercise No: 2)Activity Codes Dictionary: Allows you to create Activity Codes, Activity ID and AliasActivity codes is used to1. Define codes that uniquely identify each activity in a project and group activities in similar categories.2. Classify activities into specific groups such as responsibility, phase, system, or location.The Activity ID1. Enables you to classify activity IDs in ways that are meaningful within your project. For example, in a project that is part of a group, the first two characters of each activity ID are reserved for the SUBP (Project ID) code; this enables you to sort and summarize activities based on these codes.2. Activity IDs can contain up to 10 alphanumeric characters, which can be divided into a maximum of four codes. Activity ID codes can be used for organizing and filtering data in the layout and in tabular reports and graphics.AliasesAre combined activity codes that enable you to summarize and select activities for tabular reports and graphics at a more specific level thanis possible with single codes. An alias is created by combining two to five activity codes or activity ID codes.For example, MNGR = PHASE + DEPARTMENT + RESPONSIBILITY creates an alias for MANAGER.Create the following Activity CodesActivity Code DESCRIPTION ORDERAREA Area of RoadwayValues GC General Construction 1 SNO Southbound Outer Lane 2 NSO Northbound Outer Lane 3RESP ResponsibilityValues RS Rajesh - Site Project Manager 1 AW Dinesh - Purchasing 2 GG Prakash - Sitework Crew Foreman 3 PR Praveen - Electrical Crew Foreman 4 JM Sameer - Structural Crew Foreman 5 JAM Ramesh - Paving Crew Foreman 6LANE Lane ClosingValues NO5 Northbound Lane 5 NO6 Northbound Lane 6 NO7 Northbound Lane 7 10

    • Exercise No: 4 (Please continue from the Exercise No: 3)Project Codes: Are created to define project codes and values at the project group level, and assign the project code values to yourmember projects. Use project codes to categorize member projects into groups, such as division, funding source, manager, team, and typeof work. You can then organize member projects, combine multiple member projects in a single band, or summarize, sort, filter, or reportusing the codes from the project group. P3 supplies 10 default project codes that you can use and define your own values for, or replacewith your own project code definitions that are better suited to your organization. For example, you may want to replace the default ProjectManager code definition with Team Leader. Ten codes must always exist for a project group in the Project Codes Dictionary, so if you wantto use a code that is not currently defined in the supplied list, you will need to change an existing code to fulfill your coding requirements.Create following Project Codes.Click on Data Project Codes Project Code DefinitionEnter the following values.Values for Project ManagerValues DescriptionArun Kumar Project Manager Sr. Phase1, assign to sub project PHS1.

Build intelligence into cost account numbers by assigning codes thatidentify work elements (such as departments, responsibilities, and locations). Use these codes to roll up costs to the level of detail you wantto examine. The Categories define the cost categories for the project. These categories describe the type of expenditure, such as labor,materials, or equipment, but contain no information about the cost account structure. You can define up to 36 cost categories for a projectCreate following Cost AccountsCost Categories: Code Category Title E Equip L Labor G Gnl & OH M Material 15

The horizontalplacement of the activity depends on its position in time. Normally, only one activity bar is shown per row; relationships between activities arenot displayed. Create graphical report on Construction Summary by Phase(Summarize on SUBP-Project ID)Timescaled logic diagrams present the overall logic of a project according to time. Time scaled logic graphics can contain up to 2,750activities. Horizontal and vertical line segments are limited to 16,000 each and you can produce up to 40 vertical sheets. Create a report onLogic by Responsibility (Group on responsibility and select the range of schedule dates) 18
    • A pure logic diagram shows the relationships between the activities in a project without consideration of time. Create a graphical report onPure Logic Diagram – Northbound (Select Project ID=P2)Resource/cost graphics enable you to track a projects resource requirements and budget using histograms and cumulative curves.Histograms show use or cost per timeperiod, while cumulative curves show accumulated use or cost over a specific time interval. Create agraphical report on Cumulative and Monthly Costs (select all resources by putting ????????? in resource selection)Matrix Report is a grid containing columns and rows that enables you to compare several items to a single criterion. Use matrix reports tocondense, compare, and summarize project data. Columns and rows of activity matrix reports are organized by activity codes. Choose froman extensive list of data items, such as dates, durations, and resource/cost data, for the cells in the center of the report. Display totals forcolumns and rows in matrix reports.Assignment: Create Resource dictionary with min and max limits and their appropriate price. Create appropriate Resource Curves, Costaccounts and assign to the task. Create Graphical and Tabular reports as stated in above exercise. 19
    • Exercise No: 5 (Please continue from the Exercise No: 4)RESOURCE LEVELINGForward: Forward leveling schedules the early dates (forward pass) of the project. P3 schedules activities in network sequence:predecessors are scheduled before their successors. If sufficient resources are unavailable for an activitys requirements, P3 postpones theactivity. If necessary, P3 can delay the activity beyond its late dates; this delays the projects early finish date. During the forward leveling oftasks and independent activities, P3 provides other choices for resolving resource conflicts. You can specify another leveling method in theLeveling section of the Constraints form.Backward: Backward leveling schedules the late dates (backward pass) of the project. Leveling begins with the last activity in the networkwith no successors and ends at the beginning of the network. This enables you to determine the latest possible dates for scheduling activitieswithout exceeding resource availability. In backward leveling, if sufficient resources are unavailable on the activitys late dates, P3 schedulesthe activity earlier. P3 reschedules the activity on the latest possible date that the necessary resources are available for the duration of theactivity. Before P3 reschedules an activity, it schedules all of its successors.Leveling based on late dates can schedule activities to start earlier than their early start dates. Also, during forward leveling, if the latest earlyfinish changes, and no finish date is imposed, P3 performs a backward pass to recalculate the late dates.Data Date: Click and select the date through which you have recorded progress.SMOOTHINGNone: When you choose this option and an activity cannot be scheduled due to insufficient resources, and it cannot be delayed because allfloat has been used, P3 recalculates resource availability assuming the maximum limit from the resource dictionary. This can result incommitting more resources than are required during certain time periods.Non-Time Constrained: When you choose this option, P3 attempts to obtain a more uniform profile of resource usage. To minimize sharpchanges in resource use, P3 divides the difference between the normal and maximum resource availabilities into 10 increments. If P3 cannotschedule an activity due to insufficient resource supply, it reevaluates the resource supply assuming not the maximum availability, but only aone increment increase (10 percent of the difference between the normal and maximum limits). If this fails again, it assumes another oneincrement increase, until it reaches the maximum. Only then is the activity delayed beyond its available float.Time Constrained: Choose this option when the end date of a project is rigid, and additional resources must be sought to meet overloadconditions. P3 initially sets the normal resource limit equal to 200 percent of the maximum limit, and never raises it further. P3 does not delayactivities beyond their late finish dates when using this mode of smoothing. 20
    • PROJECT LEVELINGP3 levels projects if the Allow Scheduling And Leveling Of Individual Projects checkbox is marked in the Schedule/Level CalculationOptions dialog box for the project group.Use Project Groups Limits: P3 assumes that the project groups availability limits for common resources are set to encompass all projects.When P3 levels only one project, and uses project group limits, these availability limits may not accurately reflect resource availability.Use Net Availability: P3 starts with the project groups limits and deducts usage from all other projects. The remaining amount is used as theavailability for the project you are leveling.OPTIONSSchedule Prior To Leveling: Mark this checkbox to have P3 calculate the schedule before leveling resources. Once you level resources, theleveled dates replace the schedule dates in a project. When forward leveling, P3 always calculates a schedule first. If you level based on latedates (backward level), you may want to clear the Schedule Prior To Leveling checkbox so you can forward level, then backward level thesame schedule.Report Series: Specify a series code for the reports you want to produce after leveling. Click and select from a list of existing series codes,or choose Tools, Tabular Reports, and Production to define new series codes.Entire Project: P3 applies the leveling algorithm through the end of the project.Until: When leveling early dates (forward leveling), instead of leveling through the entire duration of a project, you can specify a cutoff date. Ifan activity cannot be scheduled before the specified date because of insufficient resources, P3 schedules the activity on the cutoff date youspecify.Level Activities In Filter: To level only certain activities in the project, click and select a filter. P3 allocates resources only to the activitiesselected by the filter. Excluded activities are treated as if they have no resources and cannot deplete the resource pool. Resource profilesbased on the leveled dates may show that resources are over utilized, since P3 assigns more of the resource pool to the selected activitiesthan it would when leveling the entire project. Activities outside the filter can still be delayed by activities which are in the filter and aredelayed by leveling.Report: Opens the Report dialog box so you can choose whether to produce a leveling analysis report. When you choose to produce thisreport, you can also specify the activities to include and a date range.Options: Displays the Schedule/Level Calculation Options dialog box so you can set calculation options for scheduling and leveling projects.Level Now: Levels the project. 21
    • PrioritizationDuring resource leveling P3 establishes a list of activities in topological sequence. As resources are leveled, if more than one activity can beleveled at the same time, P3 uses the prioritization codes as a tie-breaker. P3 levels the activity with the highest priority (the lowest number)before activities with lower priority. If no data items are specified under prioritization, P3 sorts by activity ID. For backward leveling, the orderof activities is reversed; the sort order is automatically descending.SplittingSet options that apply to all activities that you designate for splitting, stretching, or crunching in the individual activities Constraints form.Maximum Number Of Splits Per Activity: Specify a number from 0 to 99; the default is 1.Maximum Duration Of Each Split: Specify a maximum duration for the suspension between 1 and 999 planning units.Minimum Duration Of Each Work Chunk: Specify the smallest duration allowable for a work chunk; the default is 2, the minimum is 1, andthe maximum is 999 planning units.StretchingUnits Per Timeperiod May Be As Little As % Of Requirement: Specify the smallest allowable percentage of a resources required unitsper timeperiod for any timeperiod while stretching an activity. For example, you could allow the use of 50% of the normal UPT (units per timeperiod).CrunchingUnits Per Timeperiod May Not Exceed % Of Requirement: Specify the largest allowable percentage of a resources required units pertimeperiod for any timeperiod while crunching an activity. P3 will not exceed the maximum availability limit set in the Resource dictionary. Forexample, you could allow the use of 200% of the normal UPT.Show Results from Splitting, Stretching, and Crunching in Onscreen Profiles and Loading Reports: Mark this checkbox to see theresults of splitting, stretching, and crunching settings on your project in profiles and loading reports.Level your project to resolve the resource conflict. You may also smoothen the resources if necessary.View Resource Profile from View Resource Profile and Resource Table to study the resource loading.View Tabular Reports from Tools Tabular Report related to Schedule, Resource, Cost Matrix and ProductionView Graphical Reports from Tools Graphical Reports related to Bar, Time Scale Logic, Pure Logic, Resource and Cost and Production. 22
    • TARGET PROJECT(Tools Project Utilities Target): Please note you must Level your project to resolve the resource conflict before saving any targetproject.After you establish an acceptable project plan, you can copy it as a target. As the project progresses, use this target as a benchmark tocompare dates, resources, and costs to the current schedule. Use this method to measure project status as well as performance. Usingtarget plans enables you to review delayed activities relative to the original plan. You also must maintain target plans to analyze earnedvalue.Project Group/Project Name: Displays the name of the project group or project that is currently open.Target/Number/Version/Data Date: Click the Target column and type a unique four-character project name or right-click to select an existingproject. Repeat this step to assign a second target. To remove a target assignment, select the target project name and click , then click OK.Update Target Plans (Tools Project Utilities Target Update): Globally updates the target project with changes made to thecurrent project.A target plan serves as a record of the original schedule; therefore, it should not be continuously updated. However, if you do need to makechanges, use the options in this dialog box to automatically update a target project based on existing data in the current project. For example,replace calendars and dictionaries, add or eliminate activities, and store or replace actual data and budgets. You can also update a targetproject independently. In a multi user environment, you need exclusive access to both the current and target projects to update atarget.Target Project: Displays a list of projects in the current folder. Choose a target project (or any other project) to update it based on data in thecurrent project.Project DataUpdate Resource Dictionary With Prices, Availability, And Calendars: Updates prices, minimum and maximum limits, and through datesto match those in the current project. Also adds new resources and their associated resource calendars from the current project. Resourcesdeleted from the Resource Dictionary for the current project remain in the Resource Dictionary for the target project.Do not update the target Resource Dictionary if you plan to analyze the impact of different normal and maximum resourceavailability limits.Delete From Target Any Activities No Longer In The Current Schedule: Deletes activities in the target that no longer exist in the currentschedule. 23
    • ReplaceCustom Data Items: Replaces the Custom Data Items Dictionary to match the current project. When you mark this checkbox, P3 alsoremoves the custom data item values for all activities. To update custom data item values assigned to activities or resources/costs, makesure you mark the Custom Data Item values checkbox.Replace Target Base Calendars: Copies the calendar from the current project to the target project. Calendar changes include the projectstart date, imposed finish date, data date, number or definition of days in a workweek, non work period definitions, and exceptions.Do not replace the target calendar if you want to perform "what-if" analysis in the current project.Replace Code Structure, Values, and Titles Dictionary: Replaces the Activity Codes and Project Codes Dictionaries to match the currentproject. Adds, deletes, or replaces code names, titles, and values.Replace WBS Structure, Values and Titles Dictionary: Updates the WBS structure to match the current project. Adds, deletes, or replacescodes, titles, levels, widths, and separators.Activity DataThe following items determine which activities P3 updates. First indicate whether all activities should be updated or only those in the currentlayout.Select: Choose All Activities to update all activities in the target project that exist in the current project.Choose Current Layout to update only those activities selected by the active filter in the current project.Select a subset of activities by marking one or two of the following options; mark all three to update all activities in the project or in the currentlayout:Underway: Selects activities that have an actual start date or a percent complete less than 100 but greater than zero.Completed: Selects activities that have an actual finish date or are 100 percent complete.Not Started: Selects activities that have no actual start or finish date and are zero percent complete.For Activities Not in the Target Add Activity and All Data Items: Adds activities that exist in the current project but not in the targetproject, including activity descriptions, relationships, durations, codes, resources, logs, and other data assigned to the new activities.AUTO COSTThe automatic resource cost calculation rules by which P3 calculates cost and estimates resource use when you update activities. You candefine system wide rule or specific rules for any project or project group.AutoCost Rules (Tools Options Autocost Rules): Click on help to read the details of the rules. 24
    • UPDATE PROGRESSOnce the Auto Cost Rules are set you may update the progress automatically using Tools Update Progress option.New Data Date: Click to select a new data date if the one shown is not correct.Estimate Progress within Update Period for: Choose to update all (visible) activities scheduled to work during the current update period oronly selected (spotlighted) activities.Update: Click to update each applicable activity. For each activity in the update, P3 estimates percent complete amounts as of the data date,sets dates to actual if they fall before the new data date, and estimates remaining durations for activities that are not finished as of the datadate. P3 also updates resource assignments based on the revised percent completes and remaining durations while adhering to Auto costrules.SUMMARIZATIONUse the Summary Calculations dialog box to select the calendar P3 uses for summary calculations and specify the weighting factor P3 usesto compute percent-complete values.If All Activities In The Summary Are Not On The Same Calendar, Use Calendar: Specifies the calendar P3 uses for summarycalculations when multiple calendars are assigned to the activities being summarized. Click to select a different calendar. P3 calculates theduration for summary activities based on work periods determined by the calendar you specify.Use the Following As The Weighting Factor When Computing Percent Complete: You can base the percent complete for eachsummarized group on duration, resource units, or cost.Duration: The duration method (the default) calculates the percent complete as= [(Sum of Orig Dur - Sum of Rem Dur) ÷ Sum of Orig Dur] x 100.Resource Units or Cost: The resource units and cost methods compute the summary percent complete for each group as = [Sum of(Budget x Percent Complete) ÷ Sum of Budget] x 100. If no resource percent complete is specified, P3 uses the schedule percent completefor the activity.CREATING FRAGNETSFragnets are sections of a network that you can use to build new projects quickly. Create fragnets using data from your own projects orretrieve sample fragnets provided with P3. P3 stores the activities related data in a fragnet such as Activity ID and description, Durations,Percent complete, Float, Relationships for activities within the fragnet.It also stores other Logs such as Resources and costs (and associated Dictionary information), Constraints, WBS values, Custom data items,Activity code values, Activity typeAssignment: Level Resources, Create Target Projects, Set AutoCost Rules suitable to your project, update progress, Create and store thefragnets, create related layouts and reports. 25
    • Exercise No: 6 (Please continue from the Exercise No: 5)UPDATING PROGRESSP3 offers several ways of updating your schedule. You can update progress for all activities and resources as a whole; update activities andresources individually; or use a combination of the two methods.If your project is progressing exactly as planned or if you only need to estimate progress, simply specify the data date or "as-of" date, thenhave P3 determine which activities have progressed and how much and calculate the remaining durations of activities that have started. P3also notes which activities have completed and sets their remaining durations to zero. If your project is not progressing as planned—manyactivities are out-of-sequence, activities are taking more or less time to complete than originally planned, or actual resource use is exceedingplanned use—update activities and resources individually. This will help you forecast the effects of this unforeseen progress or lack ofprogress, so that you can take appropriate corrective action wherever necessary.Most projects progress somewhere between these two situations: some activities are progressing as planned and some are not. If this is thecase, youll want to combine the two updating methods. Let P3 calculate your project as if it is progressing exactly as planned, and thenindividually update those activities and resources that have deviated from the plan.You can record progress at any time. P3 records progress up to the current data date. For example, suppose you update the schedule everyFriday and the current data date is Friday, November, 5. Suppose another week passes and now it is November 12. Update progress throughthe end of the day November 11, then advance the data date to November 12; P3 revises the schedule based on the actual dates, delays,and other changes you just recorded.METHODS OF UPDATING PROGRESS1. Update progress (Tools Update Progress): If activities are progressing on schedule, you may want P3 to estimate progress for all activities as of the new data date you specify. P3 can quickly estimate activity dates, percent complete amounts, and remaining durations when you use the Update Progress dialog box to update a project. Estimating activity progress is a quick and convenient way to update your project. P3 estimates progress only for those activities that were supposed to take place. Since progress can occur on activities out of sequence, you may need to update additional activities—especially if you selected activities by dragging the data-date line or by using the Progress Spotlight feature. You should also review all incomplete activities to make sure their remaining durations, actual dates, and percent complete amounts are realistic. Once you spotlight activities, you can quickly update the project as "on time." In P3, you can either update projects automatically or update each activity manually. You will probably combine these methods for most updates. First, update the entire project: P3 updates each activity as though it progressed according to its early dates. P3 calculates resource use according to progress. Next, adjust the actual dates, duration, and resource use of the activities that did not occur exactly as scheduled. 26
    • 2. Estimate progress for spotlighted activities (View Progress Spotlight or click the Progress Spotlight icon on the desktop) • Spotlight the activities for which you want to estimate progress by dragging the data date line or by using the Progress Spotlight feature. • Choose Tools, Update Progress. Enter the new data date if the one shown is not accurate. The data date is not necessarily the date you are working on the project. For example, if on Tuesday you are updating a project to show progress as of the end of the day last Thursday, the data date is last Friday. • Choose to update all (visible) activities scheduled to work during the current update period or only selected (spotlighted) activities. • Click Update. For each activity in the update, P3 estimates percent complete amounts as of the data date, sets dates to actual if they fall before the new data date, and estimates remaining durations for activities that are not finished as of the data date. P3 also updates resource assignments based on the revised percent completes and remaining durations while adhering to Autocost rules. In addition, P3 takes into account only the first price per unit in the Resource Dictionary, if more than one price per unit for varying through dates exists, when updating resource assignments. Note: If you estimate progress for selected activities that do not fall within the update period, those activities will show no progress. When spotlighting activities, you can only estimate progress—percent complete, remaining duration, and so on—for activities that are within the update period. If you manually update a spotlighted activity and then run Update Progress, P3 bypasses the activity and your changes are retained.3. Record progress using the Activity form or columns (View Activity Form): You can record progress at any time. P3 records progress up to the current data date. For example, suppose you update the schedule every Friday and the current data date is Friday, November, 5. Suppose another week passes and now it is November 12. Update progress through the end of the day November 11, then advance the data date to November 12; P3 revises the schedule based on the actual dates, delays, and other changes you just recorded. You may record RD, AS, AF, % completion for an selected activity.ANALYZING PROGRESS1. Tracing progress using the progress line: Show a progress line in the Bar chart to graphically trace progress on activities and quickly see how a project is performing. Click the Progress Line tab in the Sight Lines dialog box (Format, Sight Lines) to select line type and color and whether you want to base progress on target variance or on actual progress. Using the variance option, you can immediately gauge whether your project is staying on track based on your original estimates. An activity is behind schedule if the progress line is drawn to the left of the data date line on the activity bar and ahead of schedule if the line is drawn to the right of the data date line on the activity bar. Note: P3 draws the variance progress line based on a continuous, seven-day calendar. 27
    • Choose the Progress Points option to see the progress line zig zag among activities that have started or that should have started, relative to the target start and finish dates. When using this option, you should choose to display target bars with progress based on the current project. (Choose Format, Bars). If an activity was scheduled to start before the data date, but has no progress, P3 draws the progress line to the target start point (indicating a delay.) To display the progress line in the Bars area: Choose View, Progress Line. P3 draws the progress line to the data date line when: • the activity is completed, • the activity has no progress and is scheduled to start after the data date, • the activity is a milestone or a flag, • the activity does not exist in the target project, and/or • the resource dates do not exist in the target project. Note: The key bar determines the bar to which the progress line is drawn. For example, if you are displaying the current and the target bar with the target bar designated as the key bar, the progress line connects points on the target bar.2. Interrupt activity progress: During a project, you may need to stop work on an activity temporarily. Specify suspend and resume dates to indicate a work stoppage. Note: The activity must have an actual start date before you can record a suspend date. To interrupt activity progress • Select the activity, then right-click and choose Activity Detail, Dates. • In the Suspend field, click and select the last day on which work occurred for the activity. • When work begins again, click and select a date in the Resume field. P3 calculates an actual duration for all activities with progress based on the amount of time actually worked. P3 considers non work time and specific calendar definitions.3. Compare actual progress to the target: Comparing progress to the original plan is the best way to determine whether your project is staying on track. P3 provides several onscreen displays, as well as printed reports and graphics, to help you compare the current schedule to the target plan. A Bar chart layout enables you to determine whether you are ahead of or behind schedule. 28
    • You can also analyze schedule and cost performance by displaying the scheduled budget and earned value in the Activity columns or by opening the Budget Summary form (from Activity Form). For detailed reporting, create schedule, activity matrix, or resource and cost graphics. Produce the earned-value report to analyze cost and schedule variance.4. Identify problem areas: If you are unconcerned with small variances at the activity-detail level, you can analyze cost and schedule variance at the summary level. To analyze cost and schedule variance at a summary level • Define columns to include Scheduled budget (BCWS), Earned value (BCWP), Actual cost, Cost variance, and Schedule variance. • Choose Format, Organize. Group by Responsibility. Note: You must group activities by resource or cost account to modify resource and cost data in the Activity columns. Choose Format, Summarize All. Select Responsibility in the Summarize To field.5. Sight Lines command (Format menu) Use this command to specify the placement of horizontal and vertical sight lines, the thickness and color of the data date and progress lines, and whether you want to base Progress on target variance or on actual progress for the progress line. Horizontal sight lines help you trace an activity bar to its corresponding data in Activity columns. Vertical sight lines help trace an activity bar to its exact position on the timescale. Sight lines can be solid, dashed, or dotted, in varying shades of gray to black, depending on how you define them. The data date line indicates the "as of" date P3 uses to calculate the schedule. The progress line graphically traces progress on activities so you can quickly see how a project is performing. You can choose to base the progress line on finish date variance or on actual progress.6. Progress Lines Based on the Difference between Current and Target Finish Dates: Choose this option to see the progress line drawn to the left or right of the data date line using the variance value for all activities. For example, if the target finish date is two days before the current finish date (negative variance), the progress line is drawn two days to the left of the data date line. Conversely, if the target finish date is two days after the current finish date (positive variance), the progress line is drawn two days to the right of the data date line. If an activity is on schedule (zero variance) the progress line is drawn to the data date. By Connecting Progress Points: Choose this option to see the progress line zig zag among activities that have started or that should have started, relative to the target start and finish dates. When using this option, you should choose to display target bars with progress based on the current project (choose Format, Bars). GLOBAL CHANGE The Global change feature enables you to make changes to all activities, or a selected group of activities, at one time. You can use Global change to edit existing values, assign new values, or delete a group of activities from your project. To change data globally, add a Global change specification, then define the changes. To select data to change, either define If: statements or click the Selection tab to create selection statements. 29
    • Click Trial Run to preview the proposed changes without affecting the stored project data. If you are satisfied with the changes shown inthe trial-run report, click Run to apply the changes.Note: Always back up your project before running a Global change; you can undo a change only by restoring a backup of the project. In amulti user environment, P3 does not change data exclusively locked by another user at the time you run.STORE PERIOD PERFORMANCENormally P3 spreads actual data evenly from the recorded actual start date to the data date. However, you can have P3 store actual cost,use, and earned value for each update period. You can analyze historical data using the Resource Table or Resource Loading report.Tips for storing period performance1. Since you cannot change period performance data once you store them, you may want to create a backup copy of the project before closing out the update period.2. Be sure to define prices for resources in the Resource Dictionary before storing period performance. Changing prices after closing out an update period may result in cost variances.3. The project controls coordinator should establish a regular time period, such as monthly or quarterly, for performing updates. Using a consistent time period to store performance data makes it easier to analyze historical data later.To store period performance1. Add activities, assign resources to them, and schedule your project.2. Record progress by assigning an actual start to each activity and updating the resources quantity this period or quantity to date.3. Change the data date to a date that is later than all of the actual dates you recorded and schedule the project again.4. Choose Tools, Store Period Performance, and click Store Now.P3 resets the Actual Quantity and Cost This Period of all resources to zero. If P3 cannot close out all resource assignments, it creates alog file (CLOSEOUT.OUT) in your Userloc folder listing the assignments it could not process. P3 also creates an audit file in the Projectsfolder named <project name>HST.OUT that contains a history of closeout dates for the project.RECORD AND REVIEW PERIOD PERFORMANCEWhen you store period performance (choose Tools, Store Period Performance), P3 stores the actual cost and quantity values for resourceassignments and resets each resource assignments actual this period value to zero so you can begin tracking progress for the currentperiod. You can review historical actual data for resources in the resource profile or table, the resource loading report, and resource/costgraphics. Actual cost and quantity values are shown from the start of the resource assignment to the data date. P3 spreads the actualvalues using the currently assigned calendar. 30
    • Additional Considerations: When storing period performance, consider the following: • If you change the activitys base calendar or the resource calendar after you have stored performance data, P3 spreads the data based on the new calendar. • When you close out at the project group level, P3 closes out each member project as well, using each projects respective data date. The data date at the project group level should be set to the same or a later date than the data date in each of its member projects. • To avoid cost variances, do not change prices after storing period performance data. • When you cut, copy or paste activities between projects, the period performance data are retained with the activity, provided the same planning unit is used in the project to which you are copying. However, period performance data may be spread differently if the project you are copying to uses different calendars. • You need to have exclusive access to the project when closing out an update period. If you do not have exclusive access to the project and attempt to store period performance while other users are in the project, P3 displays a warning message and does not allow you to continue. To obtain exclusive access to the project when closing out an update period, choose File, Open and mark the Exclusive checkbox in the Open a Project dialog box.Project Check-in/Check-outProject participants may want to use a version-control utility called Project Check-in/Check-out that is provided in P3. This utility enables aproject participant to check out a project to work with at another location; it also notifies any other participants that the project they areattempting to access has been checked out; the project can still be accessed from its usual location, however. Project managers shouldrecommend this method to all participants who are planning to make changes to a project when it is located anywhere other than thenetwork where it normally resides.Establish relationships between projects from different project groupsYou can also assign relationships between activities from different project groups. In this case use the Inter Project RelationshipManager to create a project group file that manages the linked activities.NetsetThe Primavera Network Administration program (Netset) is provided with P3 for managing the user database in a multi user networkenvironment.Note: You cannot run Netset and P3 concurrently on your workstation; close P3 before running the Netset program.To start Netset: Start Netset from the Primavera programs group. Type Netset as the password and click OK.Netset is password-protected to prevent unauthorized users from changing the network setup and other information. "Netset" is thedefault password; you should change this password after using Netset the first time. You can change the Netset password by usingOptions, Change Administrator Password 31
