Hi all,,

Can anybody know how to set baseline after we revised the Schedule and to set this revised Schedule as a baseline to the revised current schedule.??


When I tried by Project - Maintain baselines- add- save a copy of the revised schedule and assigned to the revised current schedule, it gave me wrong baseline dates and all completed activities having without Actual dates in it.

Please help,

Best regards,
Abbas

Hi,

Some times I have to run Global change a few time before all the planned dates are equal to early dates..

Has someone else has faced the same issue i.e. running the global change a few times before it completely overwrites the old dates?

Niles,
I also used that settings and it doesn’t help. Try to do some experiment and the baseline will still have slippage. That setting is only used for Earned Value calculation but not for aligning revise baseline to current project. We already have that discussion before as link below:

hi all,
In order to solve this problem, we can revise the configuration of P6 system. Detail is changing the option of Aadmin preferences->earned value->earned value caculation->when caculating earned value from a baseline use, at this point we can choose the Budgeted value with current dates.

Yes it will gave some error but not to worry because it error only on milestones because if start Milestone then no finish date only start and finish Milestone don’t have start date only finish date.

Abbas,
Your doing it correctly but baseline will always show the planned date and not the actual date.
Here are the steps you need to do if you want the actual start and finish will be shown on the baseline.
Restore your baseline under Project-> Maintain Baseline then click the baseline and click Restore.
Open the restore baseline and run a global change
Planned Start = Start
Planned Finish = Finish

Note: Dont reschedule(f9) because if the logic is wrong the planned date will change again.

Show the column Planned Start, Planned Finish, Start and Finish and check if Planned Start = Start and Planned Finish = Finish. If both are the same then maintained and attached the baseline again. That should reflect the revised baseline.
Note: You also need to select which baseline are you using: Project Baseline or User Primary Baseline Under Project Directory-> Setting Tab. That should match when assigning baseline to current Project.
