4 Introduction to Primavera Primavera has become the construction industry standard application for managing, tracking and analyzing projects. has chosen Primavera as its Centralized Project Management system for managing and tracking all of the organizations projects as well as the documents that coincide with that project. The Project Initiation and Revision Training class will focus on Project Management (P3eC) and Methodology Management applications. Project Management (P3eC) is a system for planning, tracking and controlling projects through scheduling functions. By utilizing Primavera Project Management, MDCPS can store and manage all projects from a central database. Using this format allows all project team users access to the project schedules, based on user access rights managed by an MDCPS database administrator. Project team members are able to view all supporting information needed to coordinate and manage their project schedules in the central database. is geared toward managing multiple projects across the MDCPS organization. Methodology Management The Methodology Management application is an integrated process improvement platform for delivering best practices, lessons learned, and organizational standards in the form of project templates, work product templates, and estimation metrics. Methodology Management houses templates allowing an organization to reuse schedules by making minor modifications. The purpose of the application is to create, capture, organize and improve reusable components for building future project plans. Expedition Expedition is a multi-project, multi-user web application, which is used to manage all contracts and documents associated with a project. Project contracts and forms are created, stored, tracked and managed using Expedition. Contracts and documents that are managed in Expedition are associated with project plans that reside in P3eC through integration

5 Section 1: Navigating in Project Management (P3eC) Starting Primavera Engineering & Construction Before using Primavera, you must enter a valid login name and password. If you do not know your login name/password, contact your MDCPS database administrator. User name should be the first initial of your first name and full last name (lower case) with no password to begin with. Login names and passwords are case sensitive If you would like to change your password at any time, choose your Edit menu bar, User Preferences, then the Password tab and clicking on the Password button. Login Dialog Box 1. Choose Start / Programs / Primavera Engineering & Construction / Project Management (P3eC) to start the application 2. Enter Login Name and Password 3. Click OK - 4 -

6 Welcome Dialog Box The Welcome Dialog Box enables users to select different Project Options: Create New Starts the create a new project wizard Open Existing Displays the Open Project dialog box which lists the projects you have access to view/modify Open Last Opens the last project user opened Open Global Data Launches Primavera without opening a project, only displays enterprise data To enable the Welcome Dialog Box 1. Choose your Edit menu bar, User Preferences 2. Click on the Application Tab 3. Under the Startup Window put a check mark next to the phrase Show the Welcome Dialog at Startup. 4. It will appear the next time you open Project Management (P3eC)

7 Opening an Existing Project Open Project Dialog Box Lists all the projects users have access to open. The group bands are defined by EPS by default. Open a single project, indicated by Open an Enterprise Project Structure (EPS) node, indicated by All projects listed under the node are opened Open multiple projects under different EPS nodes Press Ctrl+click to select more than one project 1. Highlight a project and click the Open button to access the project file Access Mode Users have the option to select an access mode prior to opening a project file. Read Only Users can view data, but cannot input or change data Shared Multiple users can view, input and change data. This is the default Access Mode. Exclusive The current user is the only user who can edit data on these projects. Other users can access the project data in a Read Only mode

8 Primavera Workspace The main windows in Primavera Project Management have different functions, but the navigation options are similar. Projects Window The Projects window allows you to see all of the projects grouped (default) by the Enterprise Project Structure. It gives you the ability to see things at a summarized, project level with the option to summarize or roll-up information even further. For instance, you can view information about that project or you can view information for all the projects in that Facility or Region Title Bar Displays the name of current opened projects 2. Menu Bar Used to perform functions in Project Management (P3eC) 3. Directory Bar Used to display Project Management (P3eC) Windows 4. Project Details Use to view/edit detailed information for the project 5. Navigation Bar Displays label of what window is open. Used to move back a window, Directory Bar and Help 6. Status Bar Displays User Name, Data Date, Access Mode and Current Baselines 7. Command Bar Displays options for adding or editing project data - 7 -

9 Enterprise Project Structure (EPS) The Enterprise Project Structure (EPS) is a hierarchy developed to help you categorize or organize your projects. MDCPS has chosen to structure the EPS first by Region, then by Facility name and Location number. Each project will be organized by Region and Facility so that anyone can identify what projects are happening at that facility including Capital and Maintenance projects. The EPS allows you to manage projects separately while retaining the ability to roll up and summarize data across multiple projects. It also assists in assigning security rights at the different levels of the structure. Attributes of the EPS The top level is called the root and it can be subdivided into many nodes Nodes can represent different levels in your hierarchy except the top level and the lowest level (which is a project) o Examples of nodes could be Site Locations, Location numbers, Departments etc Each node can contain an unlimited number of projects Placement of the project determines the summary level in which it is included - 8 -

10 Home Window The Home Window is the starting point for navigating through the main windows in Primavera Title Bar Displays the name of current opened projects 2. Menu Bar Used to perform functions in Project Management (P3eC) 3. Directory Bar Used to display Project Management (P3eC) Windows 4. Navigation Bar Displays label of what window is open. Used to move back a window, Directory Bar & Help 5. Status Bar Displays User Name, Data Date, Access Mode and Current Baselines - 9 -

11 Activities Window The Activities window is used to create, view and edit activity data for opened projects. Can be divided into top and bottom layouts Click the Activities button from the Directory Bar to access the Activities Windows. 1. Toolbar Displays active icons to change the look of the layout 2. Command Bar Displays options for adding or editing activity data 3. Gantt Chart Graphical display of individual activities over time 4. Activity Details Used to view/edit detailed information for the selected activity 5. Split Bars Used to hide or show more information in the layouts 6. Activity Table Displays activity information in spreadsheet format 7. Timescale Used to show major and minor date lines for building the project 8. Layout Options Bar Displays a menu of the options available to the Activities Window

12 Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) The Work Breakdown Structure or (WBS) is the primary structure in which to organize your project. Similar to the EPS that gives a logical organization for multiple projects, the WBS gives a logical organization for each individual project. For example: Phase, CSI codes, Location, etc Attributes of the WBS Each project has a unique WBS hierarchy The top level of the WBS is automatically given the Project name & the Project ID Elements within the WBS have a child/parent relationship which means that you can roll up and summarize information from the lower levels

13 Removing a WBS Element 1. Click the WBS button on the Directory Bar to view the WBS. 2. If you needed to remove a WBS element and you did not do it via the Project Architect, you can highlight a WBS element in this window and click on the Delete button on the Command Bar (right side of the screen). 3. If you click Delete, it will give you a prompt. 4. If you choose Delete Elements, the activities in that WBS element will be deleted. 5. If you choose Merge Elements, the activities in that WBS element will be merged to the higher (parent) WBS level

14 Section 2: Creating New Projects & Using Methodology Manager Creating a New Project in Project Management (P3eC) Projects can be created in Project Management (P3eC) a couple of different ways. You can create a brand new project by using the Project Wizard and manually build the schedule or you can pull in a project template from Methodology Manager. We will look at both ways. Using the New Project Wizard 1. Choose the File Menu Bar and select New. The Project Wizard will initiate. 2. Choose the ellipse button to select the lowest EPS node or (level) this project will be placed. 3. Choose Next

15 4. Type in a Project ID (up to 20 alphanumeric characters), which is the unique identifier of that project. The Project ID is equivalent to the MDCPS Project Number. 5. Type in a Project Name (unlimited characters). 6. Choose Next. 7. Choose Planned Start Date of project (required) and choose a Must Finish By date if you have one (optional)

16 8. Choose Next. 9. Choose a Responsible Manager (comes from the OBS-Organizational Breakdown Structure) for security reasons. 10. Choose Next

17 11. Choose a Resource Rate/Type: Default is Price/Unit. 12. Choose Next. 13. Choose No, do not run the Project Architect (the wizard for using Methodology Manager). 14. Choose Next. 15. Choose Finish. Your project has been created and is now open (notice the blue Title Band at the top of the screen.) Verify your project has been created in the Projects window under the correct EPS node

18 Applying a Template in Methodology Manager to a Project Using the Project Architect 1. Choose the File Menu Bar then choose Project Architect. 2. Welcome window! Choose Next. 3. Choose between a Base Methodology (An entire project ex: building a house) or a Plug-In Methodology (part of a project ex: adding a screened porch)

19 4. Choose Next. 5. Select which Base Methodology (or Plug-In Methodology) you would like to use. 6. Highlight it and choose Select, then Close. 7. Choose Next

20 Size and Complexity % In Methodology Manager, you have the ability to set parameters on costs, resource units (hours), and durations of activities. In other words, you can assign a low value and a high value for each of those data fields. When you bring over a template from Methodology Manager, you then have the ability to scale that project by a percentage. If you choose 0%, you will bring over the lowest assigned value and if you choose 100%, likewise, you will bring over the highest assigned value. Any percentage between 0 and 100 will give you the equivalent cost, duration, and unit values according to the percentage chosen. 8. Enter a Percentage between 0 and 100 in the Size and Complexity column. 9. Choose Next. 10. Make sure the Merge methodology WBS into current project s WBS is checked. 11. To remove a WBS element: Choose Tailor, highlight the WBS element, choose Select, then Close. 12. Choose Next

21 WP s & Docs In P3eC, you have the ability to link internal reference documents ( Docs ) or deliverables ( WP s Work Products ) to a project or individual activities. 13. Optional: To remove any WP s and/or Docs: Choose Tailor, and select the documents you would like to remove. Choose Close. 14. Choose Next. 15. Choose the Overview button to see any adjustments you ve made

22 16. Choose Next. 17. Choose between the two Resource Rate Types (ex: Electricians make $25/hr). -The first option refers to the rate specified in the Resource pool in P3eC, where each of the resources are listed and given a rate (price/unit), usually hourly or daily. Default option. -The second option refers to the price/unit from your chosen Methodology

23 18. To change the Import configuration, choose Modify. (Would you like to keep existing, update existing, insert new or not import the information to a current (existing) project?) 19. To keep the default configuration, choose Next. 20. If you are pulling in a Plug-In Methodology from Methodology Manager, you may want to choose a specific WBS element to place the Plug-In into. 21. For Base Methodologies, the top level of the WBS element would be the most common option. 22. Choose Finish. You have successfully brought in a template from Methodology Manager! 23. Choose OK

24 Commit Changes and Refresh Data In order to show new changes on the shared database, you may need to commit your changes and refresh the data. -Committing changes reflects your own changes into the database to allow other users to view your changes. Choose File, Commit Changes. -Refresh Data reflects changes other users have made and allows you to view those changes. Choose File, Refresh Data. Creating a New Project with a Template from Methodology Manager Begin with the same process as creating a brand new project using the project wizard (File, New) and say YES, to run the Project Architect. This will allow you to create a new project using a template from the Methodology Manager. The Project Architect will initiate as it did when you chose File, Project Architect. Follow the same procedure as pulling a template into an Existing project

25 Section 3: Using the Projects Window After the project has been created in Project Management (P3eC) and the template (schedule) has been applied to it from Methodology Manager, there are some items that will need adjusting and assigning to that new project. Items such as: Planned Start Date of the Project Must Finish By Date of the Project (if applicable) Check the Project ID and Project Name Delivery Method Project Type Status Capacity Name of the Advanced Planner Name of the A/E Selection Coordinator Name of the Design Coordinator Name of the Project Manager Name of the FF&E Coordinator Modifying Project Information 1. Choose Projects on the Directory Bar (left side of the screen). IMPORTANT: Any information you would like to see or modify on a project in the Project Details, that project must first be highlighted

26 2. Highlight the newly created project and click the icon (show/hide button) from the toolbar to review/modify the necessary Project Detail Tabs. General Tab The General Tab enables users to view or modify general information about the selected project. With the appropriate security rights, the Project ID, Project Name, and Responsible Manager can be changed using this tab. Dates Tab The Dates Tab allows users to edit date information for the selected project. The date fields will be populated with the dates from the template project and should be modified to reflect the current project. At any time, you can change the Planned Start Date for the project or enter the Must Finish By Date in this tab

27 Codes Tab The Codes Tab enables users to assign project code values to projects. Project codes allow users to group the projects in your EPS according to specific categories. Project Codes used in the MDCPS database: Project Manager Advanced Planner A/E Selection Coordinator Design Coordinator Project Type Ed Specs Coordinator FF&E Coordinator Status Delivery Method We will be using Region, Location Description, Location Number and Phase of a project in the EPS (WBS for the Phase) instead of project codes. 1. Click the Codes Tab from the projects window 2. Click the Assign button 3. Highlight the code value from the Project Code grouping 4. Double-click the value to assign or highlight and click the icon

28 Notebook Tab Notebook topics are used to record comments about the project when necessary. They can be used to report reasons for schedule delays such as weather, delivery, and owner delays. Notebook topics can also come in quite useful if a claim issues arises during the project. Topics are defined by the database administrator and are groupings of data that can be pulled into reports. There will be customized Notebook Topics for MDCPS to select from. Notebook Topics are found at the project level as well as the activity level. 1. Click on the Add button in the bottom left corner of the tab to add a Notebook Topic 2. Choose Scope as the Notebook Topic and click the Assign/Select button. 3. Type notes in the Note Pad section of the tab (right side) the scope of the project. This Note Pad can be formatted and has unlimited space for documentation

29 Section 4: Layouts A layout is a customizable view of project information. A layout is a combination of all the visual elements that appear onscreen. Layouts can be created and used in the Projects Window as well as the Activities Window. Opening an Existing Layout in the Projects Window Users can choose from a number of layouts to present project information from different perspectives. Layouts will be pre-created in the Projects window for the departments of MDCPS based on the information that each department needs to use. 1.

38 Section 5: Adding / Modifying/ Removing Activities Adding New Activities Activities are the basic work elements of a project. They are the lowest subdivision of work that is tracked in the project schedule. Activities may need to be modified or added in the project schedule to accommodate any additional work scope to be accomplished outside of the template project pulled out of Methodology Manager. To add a new activity to the project schedule use the Activities window. Each activity must have an Activity ID, Activity Name, Original Duration, must be given an Activity Type, and a Calendar. Some of these fields have default values that fill in until you change them. Activity Details General Tab used to add general information about the activity 1. Right-click and choose Add, click the button from the command bar or press Insert from the keyboard to add a new activity

39 Project Initiation and Revision Training Manual 2. On the General Tab, verify the Activity ID 3. Enter the Activity Name 4. Enter the Activity Type Task Dependent Default activity type used when work is scheduled base on the activity schedule Resource Dependent Work is scheduled according to resource calendar/availability Level of Effort Typically used for ongoing tasks dependant on other activities. Duration is determined on its predecessor/successor activities (similar to Hammock activity type in P3) Milestones Start and Finish zero duration activities that mark the beginning or end of a project phase or used to communicate project deliverables 5. Verify the correct Activity Calendar Status Tab used to assign durations and constraints 1. Click the Status Tab 2. Enter the Original Duration and press Enter 3. Assign Constraints on the Status Tab if needed ( 2 commonly used constraints listed below) Start On or After Used to set the earliest date an activity can begin. Forces the activity to Start no earlier than that constraint date. Affects the early dates of activities. Finish On or Before Used to set intermediate completion points in the project. Forces the activity to Finish no later than the constraint date. Affects the late dates of activities

40 Codes Tab used to assign Activity Code values to the activities Activity Codes Activity Codes are ways to classify and categorize activities according to your organizational and project needs. Attributes of Activity Codes: o Can be global, which means they would be available for any project in the database o Organize activities within a project o Unlimited number of global activity codes available o Each Activity Code has attached Code Values o Unlimited number of Code Values available for each Activity Code 1. Click the Codes Tab 2. Click the Assign button 3. Highlight the code value from the Assign Activity Codes dialog box 4. Double-click the value to assign or highlight and click the icon *Create the remaining activities with Activity Types and their durations according to the Activity Table below:

41 Relationships Tab - used to assign Predecessor and Successor relationships Predecessor the activity that comes before (precedes) the activity in focus Successor the activity that comes after (succeeds) the activity in focus 1. Click the Relationships Tab 2. The Relationships Tab is divided into two sections Predecessor and Successors 3. Click the Assign button from the Predecessor or Successor section and highlight the predecessor/successor activity and click the icon 4. Enter the Relationship type (FS, SS, FF, SF) Finish-to-Start Default relationship type. The start of the successor activity depends on the completion of the predecessor activity Start-to-Start The start of the successor depends on the start of the predecessor Finish-to-Finish The finish of the successor depends on the finish of the predecessor Start-to-Finish Successor activity cannot complete until the start of the predecessor activity 5. Enter the Lag, if any Lag is the offset of delay between and activity and its successor activity, can be positive or negative 6. Close the Predecessor/Successor assignment boxes *Assign relationships between the activities so that they reflect the table below:

42 Notebook Tab - used to record comments about the project when necessary. They can be used to report reasons for schedule delays such as weather, delivery, and owner delays. Notebook topics can also come in quite useful if a claim issues arises during the project. Topics are defined by the database administrator and are groupings of data that can be pulled into reports. There will be customized Notebook Topics for MDCPS to select from. Notebook Topics are found at the project level as well as the activity level. Users may list several notebook topics on an activity. 1. Highlight the activity 2. Click on the Notebook Tab 3. Click Add under Notebook Topics and assign the appropriate topic 4. Type the note on the right side of the screen Modifying Activities All activity elements can be modified to reflect scope differences/changes from the template project. Using the Activity Detail Tabs described in the Adding New Activities section, users are able to quickly build their schedules by making the necessary changes to the activity duration, relationships or any other modification needed on an activity

43 Removing Activities When removing an activity from a project, there are two options: Delete the activity or Dissolve the activity. Deleting an activity also removes the relationships that the activity had with its predecessor and successor. Dissolving an activity keeps the relationships in place and ties the predecessor of the removed activity to the successor with whichever relationship type that was originally given. To Delete an activity: 1. Choose your Edit menu bar, and select Delete or choose Delete off of your Command bar. 2. Click OK for the prompt about deleting an activity 3. Notice the activity is gone as well as the relationships

44 To Dissolve an activity: 1. Choose your Edit menu bar, and select Dissolve 2. Click OK for the prompt about dissolving an activity 3. Notice the activity is gone, but the original relationships are connecting the removed activity s predecessor and successor

45 Section 6: Scheduling the Project Project Management (P3eC) employs the Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling technique to calculate project schedules. CPM uses activity durations, calendar assignments, constraints and relationships between activities to calculate the schedule early (projected) and late dates. This schedule calculation is done in two passes through the activities in the project. Scheduling Concepts Critical Path Longest continuous path of activities through a project schedule that determines the project completion date. A delay in one activity delays the project as a whole. Forward Pass Calculates an activities early dates, Early dates are the earliest dates that an activity can start and finish once its predecessors have been completed Early Start + Duration -1 = Early finish Backward Pass Calculates an activities late dates. Late dates are the latest dates that an activity can start and finish without delaying the end date of the project Late Finish Duration + 1 = Late Start Total Float The amount of time an activity can slip from its early start date without delaying the project. Late Date Early Date = Total Float Critical Activities Activities with less than or equal to zero total float Backward Pass with Required Finish Uses the Required Finish date as the latest late finish when performing the backward pass. Used only during the backward pass. Late Finish Duration + 1 = Late Start Loops Circular logic between two activities, meaning a predecessor activity is also listed as a successor activity in an activity network. Project Management (P3eC) will display a dialog box showing that a loop exists. Schedule will not calculate until the loop is eliminated. Open Ends Activities that do not have a predecessor or successor activity. No Predecessor activity uses data date as early start date No Successor activity uses project finish as late finish date Driving Relationships An activity that has a predecessor relationship that determines its early start

46 Scheduling a Project in Project Management (P3eC) When users schedule a project, Project Management (P3eC) calculates the activity dates according to durations and logic. When the project is scheduled, the Schedule Log records high-level project information that is useful in planning and managing a project schedule. 1. Choose Tools / Schedule, click the icon from the tool bar or press F9 2. Enter/Verify the correct Data Date 3. Check the Log to File box to create a schedule log and select a file location for it to be created 4. Click Schedule Viewing the Schedule Log The Schedule Log allows you to quickly identify many aspects about your project. The Latest Early Finish Date is the Projected Finish Date of the entire project. After modifying your project, you may want to see what date the project will be finishing so you can make any adjustments necessary. Any activities on the Critical Path (also indicated in the log) will affect the end date of the project and may need modifying if the project is scheduled to end late

47 The Schedule Log records the following scheduling results: Scheduling/leveling options Statistics Errors Warnings Scheduling/leveling results 1. Open the Schedule Dialog box, press F9 2. Click View Log to open the Schedule Log in Notepad Filters A filter is a set of instructions that determines which activities/projects to display. Users can apply a filter at any time to focus on specific areas of a project and can be saved as part of a layout. Filters allow users to focus on specific data by limiting the number of activities in the layout, facilitate updating and to analyze critical activities

48 Project Initiation and Revision Training Manual A set of predefined filters are provided, as is the ability to created user defined filters Default 15 pre-defined filters available to all users; cannot be deleted or modified Global available to all users User Defined available to current users for all projects they have access Filter Dialog Box All Activities mark to show all activities in the layout Show activities that match used when more that one filter is selected o All selected filters mark to include activities that meet each selected filter o Any selected filter mark to include activities that meet at least of the selected filter Replace activities shown in current layout displays only activities that meet the filter criteria Highlight activities in current layout which match criteria highlights only activities that meet the filter criteria 1. From the Layout Options bar, choose Filter or click on the icon from the tool bar 2. Choose the Critical filter button by putting a check mark in the box. 3. Choose Ok 4. Notice that only the critical activities (depending on how you ve defined critical) are showing on the screen

49 Applying the All Activities Filter To remove the filter and view all of the activities on screen, check the All Activities box. 1. Open the Filter dialog box 2. Mark the All Activities checkbox in the upper left hand corner 3. Click OK to execute (or remove the filter)

50 Section 7: Baselining a Project This section describes the steps necessary to create a baseline of the project plan and how to perform baseline schedule comparisons.
