Good day,

I have just made a new revised program for the project 

I have added new activities and loaded the material resources for the remaining activities (Concrete).

How I can calculate the project percent complete?? depending on what?

how P6 is calculating the schedule % complete and units % complete? 

when i roll up for all the project it gives a schedule % complete ?? is this accurate or what?

 

Regards,

Rafael has it correct you can only use duraton % complete and roll that up. In the gGroup and sort select show gand totals

If the schedule is not resource or cost loaded then your only option might be to use Duration % Complete, an option I consider foolish at the project level.

If cost and resource loaded you can use Cost/Resources/Materials/Effort to calculate % complete but usual practice is to generate Progress-S Curves as they provide more information.  You can convert values to % of total at some cost as with values [current and total] you can estimate both but with % only you cannot figure out the values.  Better show both, if to show only one of the two then use values and nothing is lost. 

With the exception of duration at the project level all the options provide relevant progress information.

Hi Zoltan,

the program is not uploaded with the resources, so I don't know what measures I should consider calculating the project percent complete!

my question is there is any way to get that from primavera as the schedule percent complete??
