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.

Sorry for bad language. As update baseline project with  new information?  Baseline project was placed with docs old, in process of construction, amount may be changed, new information is recieved . Plus new construction documents is going out. Change and track each activity and update data in baseline is very hard to me. Maybe  you have solutions?

Alexey,

if you want to be able to compare current schedule withh the baseline both shall be updated. In other case you will not be able to apply Erned Value Analysis and track activity performance against the baseline.

But you can apply other methods of project performance analysis. I may suggest to assign target dates and target costs to the project phases and just analyze if your targets were achieved. In this case the baseline is just a set of target dates and costs and in this case it is not necessary to update it when more detailed information becomes available. You still will be able to compare planned and actual dates and costs with the approved targets, analyze trends and risks, manage project buffers.

Best Regards,

Vladimir
