The breadth and depth of Primavera Project Planner
Oracle Primavera P6 is the most sophisticated and widely-used project portfolio management software in the world today. Some people think of P6 as simply a tool for scheduling projects, such as Microsoft Project, but on steroids. But while P6 can be used to plan a project a simple as writing one book, it can also be used to plan and manage a multi-year, globally-distributed set of engineering projects involving tens of thousands of workers, machines, and materials. When used to its fullest, it can give an organization the ability to manage current projects, plan future projects, and make key metrics to improve processes and ensure future success.
Our courses introduce you to organizing your Projects with EPS, OBS, and WBS - introducing the organizational elements of P6. The Enterprise Project Structure (EPS) organizes projects, and the Organizational Breakdown Structure (OBS) organizes people. Traditionally, EPS matches internal divisions within a company, and OBS matches the employee hierarchy. We also show you how the WBS is used to organize work within a project. Scheduling and Constraints, zeros in on the heart of P6 scheduling. We introduce you to the algorithms used and how to run schedule calculations. We also train you on the many different settings in P6 that affect the scheduling algorithm.
