NEW! APPLIED ORACLE PRIMAVERA P6 PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOPS
Schedule Planning Foundation is the first in a series of industry-focused planning, scheduling and resource management workshops. Beginning with an overview of the P6 application and the important hierarchical project structures, this two-day course lays the foundations for users who are new to the tool. Working in teams and led by an experienced P6 project consultant, the delegates will create a realistic schedule in P6 by developing a project plan, building a Work Breakdown Structure and adding activities to the schedule. In addition, the delegates will gain an understanding of the values of a coding structure and how to assign calendars and notebook topics, as well as learning how best to utilise the ‘activity steps’ functionality in P6. After adding logic (relationships) to their plan they will move on to understanding CPM scheduling, the importance of reviewing the schedule log and how to assign constraints, and manage multiple projects.
Throughout the workshop, hands-on labs and exercises reinforce the delegates’ knowledge and understanding of the key functionality of P6. These labs can be tailored to each individual delegate’s own industry, enabling them to create a bespoke P6 project plan related to their own specific working environment.
