Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Good Evening Gents'


I'm trying to track my productivity through P6 along with quantity tracking. But while designing report i'm facing problem, how to call actual units per time , planned units per time & remaining units per time.  Coz these three columns can help me in calculatin my planned, actual and forecast productivity. So if anybody have any idea about this please help me out.

Hi Mohammad,

In order to track productivity you need the following:

Plan Units per time - Budgeted Labour Units (Manhours or Mandays)

Earned Value - based on physical progress % complete (Budget Labour Units * % complete)

Actual Units per time - based on actual resources (manhours or mandays) this you need to input manually

Now, Productivity = Output (Earned) / Actual

Budgeted Labour Units - Progress Earned  = Remaining Units per time

Budgeted at Completion (BAC) or Forecast at Completion = Remaining Units per time / Productivity

Cheers mate,
