Summer School – Only a few places available in August.

Being a project controls professional means much more than being able to work with software tools such as Primavera P6. To create value for your project and your project manager, many project controls techniques should be mastered. We see an increased trend towards schedule risk analysis, delay analysis, earned value analysis, BI reporting, etc. All of them have an impact on how a schedule should be created.

In this 4-day summer course, the participant will step through a practical approach to apply several project controls techniques on a project. The course has a practical nature and will focus on the interactions between scope, time, cost, risk & change.

Classic issues with layouts in Primavera P6

Advanced Primavera P6, layout types, activity codes, copying projects

To provide the project team with the required insights in the project, a project controls engineer spends a good portion of his time filtering, sorting, scaling, summarizing, etc.  Thankfully most of this work doesn’t have to be repeated over and over again, as you can simply save layouts. Reapplying a layout is not only a gain of time, it also assures that your reports always look exactly the same. Or don’t they? Have your filters or group and sort settings ever disappeared, leaving you wondering where they went? Then this post will surely help you out.
