MS Project Training, Why it is Important
Microsoft Project 2016 is a complex scheduling tool with many features and functions. In addition, the product is the standard for project scheduling in the project management industry. For example, the software enables project managers to build, manage and track project schedules from the simple, to highly complex.
On the other hand, learning how to use the MS Project scheduling software is not always easy. Fortunately, it does not have to be this way. Once you learn a handful of techniques with MS Project 2016, you will begin to feel more confident using it. Consequently, after continued use it will become less complex and your confidence will increase. Complex projects will become easier to manage, the critical path will start to make sense, you will understand how to link tasks, and much more.
Microsoft Project, from the complex to simple.
The Project Professional scheduling engine is powerful, yet complex. For instance, let’s look at how to handle a delayed task.
Some project managers first instinct would be to change the Start Date to the actual date the task started. As a result, this may have several negative effects. For instance, it will immediately stamp the task with an Actual Start date.
To clarify, this is because the Start Date was not dynamically determined based on task dependencies and lags/leads. Second, depending on the Task Type, changing the Start Date may not alter the Finish Date. This could in turn alter the amount of Work. The Task Types of Fixed Work, Fixed Duration, Fixed Units play an important role in scheduling.
A Better Solution for Scheduling
What to do when looking at a Gantt Chart and seeing slipping tasks. Although there are several solutions, a better method to delay the Start Date of a task would be to incorporate a Lag. To clarify, a Lag in MS Project is merely a delay inserted prior to a tasks Start Date. When you create a Lag, you do so by entering the number of days the lag should be.
Therefore, if a task should be delayed by one calendar week, we would specify a Lag of 5 days. As a result, this method will leave all other data points intact (Work, Actual Start, etc.).
