Primavera P6 Professional Fundamentals Rel 16

Duration: 3 Days

What you will learn

This course leads participants through the entire project life cycle, from planning to execution. Topics include adding activities, assigning resources, and creating a baseline. Participants also gain a thorough background in the concepts of planning and scheduling.

All workshops and instruction stress the three basic elements of project management: schedule, resources, and costs.

At the end of each day, students apply the concepts and functionality they learned in a case study. The course is divided into three sections: Creating a Project; Scheduling the Project; Project Execution and Control.

The course uses P6 Professional, Primavera's Windows-based, client/server application. It is appropriate for those using P6 Professional either as a stand-alone application or as part of P6 EPPM.
