Project Management Reference Manual
The Project Management Reference Manual describes Primavera's approach to managing projects and introduces you to the Project Management module. This manual describes how to use the Project Management module to:
[li][LEFT]Create projects and set up your global (enterprise) data structure, including the Enterprise Project Structure (EPS), Organizational Breakdown Structure (OBS), resource and role hierarchy, budgets, project codes, calendars, and user-defined fields. [/li][LEFT]Implement the project schedule by defining a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), creating and assigning activity codes, adding project activities, defining activity details, establishing relationships, assigning resources/roles to activities, defining cost accounts, adding expenses, and more.
Once projects are underway, create and maintain baselines for comparison, update and schedule projects, level resources, apply actuals, store period performance, summarize projects, add issues, risks, and thresholds, assign work products and documents, create reflection projects, and track project progress.
Group, sort, and filter data; create, save, and print layouts; adjust the timescale; format charts and spreadsheets; customize columns; create, run, and print reports; and, publish a project website. [/LEFT]
