Primavera P6 Release 8.2: Progress Line on the Gantt Chart
Primavera P6 Release 8.2 has several tools that allow you to quickly view the status of your project against the baseline plan. Comparing the status of the project against it's baseline can be useful for understanding the success or issues with your project. The Progress Line in the Primavera software application is an excellent tool for viewing variances between selected activity data and the baseline. The Progress Line provides a visual representation between selected activity criteria such as the start or finish dates of activities in the current project versus the baseline project, or the progress of an activity based on its remaining duration or percent complete.
>How to use the Progress Line in Primavera P6 R8
Applying a progress line to the Gantt chart enables you to quickly view the progress of activities with regard to their scheduled deadlines. As a variance line, the progress line can represent a variance between the planned (ie. baseline) and actual start or finish dates of an activity. As a progress point line, the progress line shows either the remaining duration of an activity or the percent complete of an activity. When the progress line is displayed, it is simple to quickly view the status of your schedule. If the progress line is drawn to the left of the data date, the activity is behind schedule. If the progress line is drawn on the data date, the activity is on schedule. When the progress line is drawn to the right of the data date, the activity is ahead of schedule.
