Learn Primavera Software using the UPK
What You Need To Know
Primavera software P6 R8 has built in features that assist with the use of Primavera P6? The tool is called the Universal Productivity Kit (UPK) and we are going to show you an example of how you could utilize it to make a work breakdown structure (WBS).
What is the UPK?
The Universal Productivity’s pre built application content is a key enhancement to P6 Release 8. What is the UPK you ask? The UPK are documented best practices that was developed by the Primavera team for use in Primavera P6 Release 8.2. The UPK pre built content delivers added value to the user by mirroring the Primavera development methodology and eliminating the need to build and maintain multiple application protocols to train users to utilize the software. This feature gives project team members a baseline from which to develop and customize a training protocol based on the needs of the organization.
How do I access the UPK?
The UPK pre built content in Primavera P6 Release 8 has been embedded in the application to make it as user friendly as possible. To access the UPK, move your cursor to the help button and launch the UPK. The application will then open an internal browser and bring you to the pre built content that is specific to the page you were on in the Primavera software application. Primavera designed the UPK this way to help users navigate the help topics in a more effective manner. The UPK is set up to allow users to interact with it in five different modes: see it, try it, know it, do it, and print it.
