PRIMAVERA P6 PPM ACTIVITY NETWORK VIEW

The Activity Network, also known as the Program (or Project) Evaluation and Review Technique – PERT View, displays activities as boxes connected by the relationship lines. Activities may be added, deleted and linked in this view in the same way as in the Gantt Chart View. This article is an extract from the book 99 Tricks and Traps for Oracle Primavera P6 PPM Professional explaining how to use the the Activity Network View: http://eastwoodharris.com/DL/TP/210730_P6_Activity_Network_View.pdf

IDENTIFYING AND UNDERSTANDING THE REASONS FOR ORACLE PRIMAVERA P6 ROUNDING ERRORS

Many companies like to keep their schedules on a daily basis so that all activities start at the start of the day, finish at the end of the day and all durations are in round days.
