Planning a Project Define Goals Develop Tasks Establish Timeframes Resource Availability? Organize
Managing and Tracking a Project Track Progress Are the tasks being completed on time? Is one task holding up the whole project? Manage Finances Is the project going to stay within the budget?
Using MS Project Define the Project Build the Plan Set a start date Enter tasks/durations Assign resources Link tasks Fine tune the plan
Using MS Project (contd) Track and Manage Set a baseline Enter actuals Adjust plan Close Project
Defining the Project The objective of the project should be defined by the person/group that is going to manage the project. Tasks, start times, and deadlines should be clearly established.
Setting a Start Date When opening a new Microsoft Project file, the user have to setting for a start date. Setting an accurate start date will make future entries more convenient. Open in project > project information
Entering Tasks and Durations Tasks are entered in the Task Name column Subtasks are created by indenting a task. Durations may be entered in number of working days or start and finish dates may be used
Standard Markers Normal Task designates ordinary task duration Summary Bar designates the duration of a group of sub-tasks
Special Markers Milestones A reference point marking a major event in a project and used to monitor the project's progress To create a milestone, Enter 0 in the duration field
Changing Marker Styles Double-click on the Marker you want to change and format accordingly
Assigning Resources A resource can be a single person, a piece of equipment, or it can represent a group, such as Plumbers Information on resources include Availability, Costs, and Working Time Resources are very important in accurate scheduling
Assigning Resources To Assign a Resource: Select the task to which you want to assign the resource Click the Column Resource Names on the row
Assigning Resources If resources are not already set up, double click on the Resource Names
Assigning Resources Add new resource in resource sheet Open with menu view > resource sheet Doublec click for detail resource Enter pertinent information and click OK.
Assigning Resources When a resource has been selected, click Assign
Linking Tasks Some tasks require that another task be completed before it can begin. These tasks must be linked. Tasks and subtasks are linked by assigning Predecessors.
Linking Tasks Predecessor A task that must start or finish before another task can start or finish Successor A task that cannot start or finish until another task starts or finishes A task becomes a successor when a row number is entered in the predecessor column
Fine Tune the Plan When all resources have been assigned and appropriate tasks are linked, the original Gantt chart will be complete Check to make sure tasks have been linked correctly and task durations are correct The project is now ready to begin
Set a Baseline A baseline compares your original plan for the project with the actual course of the project. You can see which tasks started earlier or later than planned, exceeded their original budget, took longer than planned, and so on.
Set a Baseline Create a baseline after you've polished it and just before you actually start work on the project To track costs, be sure to enter cost information before you create the baseline Updates can easily be made to the baseline if information is missing
Set a Baseline The Baseline plan includes: Tasks (start and finish dates, duration, work, cost, splits, timephased work, and timephased cost) Resources (work, cost, timephased work, and timephased cost) Assignments (start and finish dates, work, cost, timephased work, and timephased cost)
Set a Baseline To set a baseline: Point to Tracking on the Tools menu Click Save Baseline
Entering Progress Update actual start and finish dates for a task. On the Tools menu, point to Tracking and then click Update Task Under Actual, type Start and Finish dates
Entering Progress Update progress on a task Double-click on the task to be updated Enter a percentage On the Gantt chart, a progress bar appears in the task bar
Tracking Gantt Chart Tracks the progress of the project Shows what tasks are overdue and what has been completed on time Click view > Trackin Gantt
Tracking Progress Determining if tasks are starting and finishing according to plan: In the Tracking Gantt, point to view menu > Table > Variance Drag the Divider bar to the right to view variance. Variance is shown in Days
Tracking Progress Determine if tasks cost more or less than budgeted In the Tracking Gantt, point to view menu > Table > Cost Drag the Divider bar to the right to view Total Cost and Baseline fields
Calendar View Keeps tabs on when tasks occur. Quickly see how long tasks take, when they start and finish, and how they occur in relation to other tasks. To view, click the view menu > Calendar
Task Usage View Work with task and resource information side by side. Easily create useful reports about when a resource is scheduled to work on a task. To view, click view menu > task usage
Resource Graph View See whether resources are overallocated, what capacity they're working at, and how much they cost in a timescale graph To view, click view menu > Resource Graph
More Views Resource Sheet View Easy way to review, add, edit data about resources Click view menu > resource view Resource Usage View Work with resource and task information side by side Click view menu > resource usage
The Project is Now Complete !! MS Project is a very powerful tool if it is used correctly This program can save a lot of time for engineers who are interested in time, cost, etc. Automatically keeps your project organized.
