Primavera P6 Visualizer offers enhanced graphical reporting capabilities. Evolved from the Timescale Logic Diagram (TSLD) tool introduced in release 8, Visualizer offers the user the ability to create Timescale Logic Diagrams as well as Gantt Charts with more reporting options than what is offered within Primavera P6.
Primavera P6 Visualizer can be utilized as a standalone application or launched from within Primavera P6's Tools menu so it offers even non-Primavera P6 users the ability to report on project progress. Reporting within Visualizer is real-time, so any changes made to the project schedule will be captured within the layout. Visualizer gives the user the ability to create stacked fields, variable timelines, color code activity bars by activity code, display steps and step % complete values in the table or on the activity bar, as well as many other enhanced reporting capabilities.

This webinar focuses on the features and functionality of Primavera P6 Visualizer. During this webinar, the participant will be introduced to logging into P6 Visualizer, opening existing Gantt Chart and Timescale Logic Diagram layouts, creating new Gantt Chart and Timescale Logic Diagram layouts, and modifying existing Gantt Chart and Timescale Logic Diagram layouts.

Our very own +Randy Rapin just uploaded the latest recording of the P6 User Group meeting covering Creating Half Step Schedules using P6's Update Baseline Utility.  Other #P6UG  related videos are on our YouTube channel: http://short.cpsconsult.com/youtube

Some information on the video:

Have you ever faced the challenge of reviewing a monthly schedule update that includes both progress updates and non-progress revisions? To effectively evaluate potential schedule impacts, a schedule reviewer needs to separate the progress updates from the non-progress revisions. Primavera P6™ software contains several features that can assist in the review and analysis of project schedules; it allows the Scheduler to save copies of project schedules as "Baselines". These Baseline schedules can also be updated using the "Update Baseline" utility. In this presentation, the authors' explore the Update Baseline feature, the myriad of options available, and how it can be used to review and analyze project schedules.


What is a Half-Step Schedule?

"Bifurcation (a.k.a. half-stepping or two-stepping) is a procedure to segregate progress reporting from various non-progress revisions inherent in the updating process. Elements that are considered to be non-progress revisions include:
• Addition or deletion of activities
• Split or combined activities, using new activity IDs
• Addition or deletion of logic links
• Changes to lag value of logic links
• Addition, deletion or changes to constraints
• Changes to Original Durations (OD)
• Increase in Remaining Durations (RD) such that RD becomes greater than OD
• Changes to RD not accompanied by changes to Percent Complete
• Increase in RD of activities that have not started
• Changes to calendar assignments
• Changes to holiday assignments within a pre-existing calendar" [1]

Half-Step schedules are used in schedule change analysis.  The procedure is codified in the AACE Recommended Practice Number 29R-03, "Forensic Schedule Analysis" in Method Implementation Protocol (MIP) 3.4, "Observational / Dynamic / Contemporaneous Split".

"How do I use P6 to create a Half-Step Schedule?"

The answer to this simple question is use the Update Baseline Function. Using the P6 Update Baseline function can create Half-Step Schedules, if one knows how.  In this presentation we will provide an overview of the Maintain and Update Baseline Functions, a detailed explanation of each user setting, and then a detailed explanation on how one can use the Update Baseline utility to create Half-Step Schedules.

If you've ever considered upgrading to the latest version of P6 R8, then you don't want to miss this webinar.  CBA understands that it can be difficult to fully comprehend what you’re getting into when you decide to upgrade.  While, generally, there is business value in upgrading to the latest version, sometimes you don’t even know where to begin or if you’re in a position to realize that value.  We’ve put together a webinar that will help address some of the key things to consider when you are thinking of upgrading.  Get answers to questions like the following:
 
• Why should I upgrade, my version is working fine?
• Will I need to buy new software?
• How much time will planning and the actual upgrade take?
• Will an upgrade affect our current integrations?
• Will we need to train everyone again?
 
You’ll get answers to these questions plus more and, at least, come away with a better idea of what your options are for upgrading.
