Dear Amir,

It’s not always necessary to use the global change for calculating % complete.
It depends on how you collect the information and howmuch and howmuch you want to enter in Primavera Enterprise.
With less information you can use the global change function to set things right and helps you to get your % complete (baseline and current).

Dear neeraj
thank you
you give me very nice advice.
before i start working with enterprise i woreked with planner as you know primavera planner has a base line percent complete column with this view i thought that i should find similar thing in the enterprise.but it seems that if i want to compare base line VS. schedule i must use global change to calculate bcwp/bcws!!!!
:) :) :)

Dear Amir,
In case you have not loaded any resource and cost and still want %progress, this will help you but it is not acccurate way.
At the very simplest, you can define a resource called "Time" in baseline and current schedule. Make BQ for this resource equal to OD using global change. organise using recource.
Make columns, BQWP & BQWS. Export to excel and create % using excel formulae for your resource "Time".

regards,
Neeraj

What you are looking for is:
Schedule % complete (this is the baseline)
Activity % complete (this is the current)

1 tip: if you’re nog using price/unit for your resource define 1 (dollar or Euro etc.) per hour. For some calculations P3e needs costs instead of units. So when you’re define 1 per hour it doesn’t matter were you’re looking at and the % complete will be good.

thanks for showing me some guideline.
but s-curve can not help me.look baseline might be your predict or situtation of three months ago.so when you want compare each task ,i think s-curve wouldn’t help .

Hi Amir,

To see % actual versus planned, the best way is to use s-curves, for this you need to resource the schedule. My suggestion if you do not have resources allocated to the activities, is to create a dummy resource and use your durations as quantities. You have to make sure the resources are both in the current schedule as well in the target schedule. If you are not sure of how to create an s-curve or load resources, contact me and I will explain.
