Dear Schedulers,

For some reason after importing my schedule in another computer with P6, my budgeted labor units slightly changes (from 805,700 manhours to 789,500); all user settings seem to be identical in both machines. Please help, I gotta get my baseline schedule approved shortly.


Thanks, Sean

I would advise to reconcile the budgeted manhours activity wise in both the machines. This lets you understand where exactly is the variation. It's not so difficult, just export the P6 data from both machines with Activity ID and Budgeted Units as fields into excel and then run v-lookup. Having this excercise done, will be able to identify the root cause.
