20 20 Extracts time-phased resource estimates from Microsoft Project Extracts time-phased resource estimates from Microsoft Project –Baseline or Estimate-to-Complete (ETC) data –Hours and Dollars Format extracted data two ways: Format extracted data two ways: –Management reports in Excel: Weekly or by accounting month –MPM Estimates file (accounting month data) for import Customize reports or MPM Import files Customize reports or MPM Import files –By WBS leg –By Cost Account Manager –By Specific Baseline Change Request Verify Budgets or ETC in Microsoft Project Verify Budgets or ETC in Microsoft Project –Verify correct totals –Confirm correct time-phasing Replicate Microsoft Project estimate totals and time-phasing in MPM with import files Replicate Microsoft Project estimate totals and time-phasing in MPM with import files Estimates/Reports Tool Report Estimates or Replicate them for MPM Import

21 21 Estimates/Reports Tool Report Estimates or Replicate them for MPM Import Extract baseline or ETC data, weekly or by accounting month, from Microsoft Project files for management reports or import into MPM.

22 22 Microsoft Project hours = 34, while the MPM Import file hours = 34,496.61, demonstrating the extreme accuracy of the estimates extraction process Estimates/Reports creates time-phased resource reports, ordered and formatted to MPM import specifications. WBS Est. Start & Finish dates Est. Type, 2 = hours Est. Month Estimates/Reports Tool Report Estimates or Replicate them for MPM Import Resource Code & Dept Est. Value

23 23 WBS Est. Start & Finish dates Est. Type, 2 = hours Est. Month Resource Code & Dept Est. Value By changing output choice, a time-phased estimates report (above) is generated instead of the MPM Import file at right. Also, the report output can appear as monthly data as shown, or weekly. Reports allow management review of data and baseline error correction in Microsoft Project, allowing for a single import cycle into MPM once data is known to be correct. Estimates/Reports Tool Report Estimates or Replicate them for MPM Import

24 24 Microsoft Project hours = 34,496.62; MPM hours = 34, This extremely close data agreement is for all WBS legs and for each month of the project.
