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.

first you determine your self , how you want to update your project,

is that schedule have fixed resource or fixed duration.

best practice is herego

1- duration type       ===== fixed duration and unit

 

2-Percent type       ====== Duration for engineering & procurement activity,

                                           Physical for construction activity.

 

3-Activity type ==========  Task Dependent ,  ( for mile stone depends start MS or Finish MS )

 

with this setting you need to update your schedule based on your physical judgement or progress measurement sheet,

update with Phy %  value , remaining duration,  start date , etc,

resource update actual unit and remaining units..
