We published a series of blogs last year on Primavera P6 called “Lessons Learned” for Construction Project Schedulers. If you missed the articles you can find all of it here. In the coming weeks, we are going to post a series of follow up blogs by the same authors – Hannah Schumacher, PSP, LEED AP, PMI-SP and Charlie Jackson, PSP, Primavera Certified Trainer.
Construction Project Scheduler would be able to apply these Primavera P6 Lessons
Once the Construction Project Scheduler has developed a schedule in Primavera P6™, the next challenge is to keep it accurately maintained and updated. The series will focus on the authors’ experiences and their lessons learned regarding the effective use of Primavera P6™ in the schedule updating and maintenance process as it applies to the AACE TCM processes for Progress and Performance Management (9.2), Project Performance Assessment (10.1), and Forecasting (10.2). The Construction Project Scheduler should be able to apply the “Lessons Learned” outlined in the series to update construction schedules quickly and efficiently using Primavera P6™.
Many Contract Documents are now requiring the use of the latest version of Primavera P6™ software therefore it is important for the Scheduler to understand how to use this software most efficiently in their effort to complete their projects in a timely manner. A new or inexperienced user may be overwhelmed in the struggle to maintain and update the schedule using P6™ and its advanced features without proper training or “Basic Training”.
The schedule update process lessons learned are organized into four main steps: Plan, Update, Review/Analyze and Communicate. The upcoming articles will be based on those four main steps.
