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.

Hi Haytham

You can measure and monitor progress in many different options. Since you are new in planning, i suggest that you start with the following.

  • Monitor progress in time. Check the Schedule Variance. This is the difference between the planned, the assigned baseline, and the actual progress.
  • Monitor progress in volume. Check the schedule % completion versus the performance % completion.  The schedule % completion is the planned progress and the performance is the actual achieved progress.
