Oracle Primavera P6 “Project Must Finish by Date”

An absolute finish date may be imposed on the project using the Project Window, Dates tab. Imposing a Must Finish By date makes Primavera calculate the late dates from the Must Finish By date rather than the calculated early finish date. Click on this link to see an article on how this P6 operates

99 Tricks and Traps for Oracle Primavera P6 PPM Professional

The Importance of Summarizing Projects and Understanding the Tracking Window

I often review P6 databases and I am horrified that users do not Summarize their database, nor understand the importance of this function, or understand the P6 functions that affect how Summarized data is calculated or where Summarized data is viewed. This approach can be a career shortening step that should be avoided at all costs.

In summary when Projects are not Summarized then the information from unopened P6 projects seen in the Projects, Activities and Tracking windows will be blank when the project has never been Summarized or out of date if the project has been updated since it was last Summarized.
