Primavera P6 Professional Schedule Planning Execution

At HPS we pride ourselves on having a CIPD qualified trainer with over 20 yearsHyde Park Solutions Training Academy of experience. A  training environment that is very relaxed and friendly, with inter-active quizzes at the end of each day.   There is also an End-of-Course Summary exercise to consolidate everything that you, the delegates have learned.  It’s not a formal test but more of a summary of what you will have learnt. This P6 Professional: Schedule Planning Execution training course covers EPPM and is run over 2 days in London, Manchester, Warwick, Leeds, Bristol, Edinburgh or another location of your choice.

This P6 Professional Schedule Planning Execution training course costs as little as £395 for the one day including all course material and upon successful completion a Hyde Park Solutions Training Academy Certificate.

Schedule Planning Execution follows on from the basic fundamentals 2 -day training for users of P6 Professional. In this one-day workshop, the delegates will learn how to create a baseline (target of the plan) and then assign it to the project, and display the baseline bars.  Delegates will then learn how to apply actual progress to the plan and reschedule activities to status the plan with up-to-date information. Working in teams and led by a CIPD qualified trainer with 20yrs experience, the delegates will determine which is the most appropriate method for updating their project. In addition, the delegates will find out how to suspend and resume an activity, compare variances between the newly updated plan and the original baseline, manage documents and analyse the updated project.  The course includes viewing existing reports, amending existing reports and creating new ones.  Also included is producing printed output, saving html copies of plans, and Primavera Visualiser – a highly effective reporting tool provided within the Primavera P6 tool.  Visualiser produces Time-scaled Logic diagrams, Gantt Charts and Project Comparison reports.

Throughout the workshop, the hands-on labs and exercises will enable delegates to reinforce their learning by updating realistic projects and also bespoke plans.

The focus of this workshop is to build on the skills learned in the Foundation workshop with an emphasis on baselining, updating progress, and reporting output in order to control projects with confidence.  This course uses Primavera P6 Professional Windows-based client/server application. It is appropriate for those using Primavera P6 Professional either as a stand-alone application or as part of P6 EPPM.
