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.

I hope this could help you or at least pointing out something useful.
What scheduling software do u use? (just curious)
I wonder how crazy it is to have 20,000 activities.
If possible, you can send me the file and let me take a look.
If not, maybe you want to .....(i am guessing here what u may or may not have)
- grouping activities into construction phases and/or location depending on the type of your project.
- using what you have and create based-line schedule, updated schedule, .... Then summerize the changed or delay according to certain activities.
Then, note in your file for those activities impacted from the delay.
Create summary of original critial activities and new critical activities BASED on your UPDATED DATA.
Then for the on-going and not-yet start activities, you might want to check if their durations are reasonable comparing between what is going on and what the estimating department gave it to you originally. You might want to justify the rest of the activity durations and come up with a new schedule or consider other alternatives.
- Obtain the physical info of your project (such as from sattlite map or blue print) and link it to your schedule file (i suggest Visio) or just print it out and highlight it. Check this pic for example

hmm, should i also dicuss about cost and resources?
