Impacted As-Planned Delay Analysis : Using Primavera P6 to see combined / consolidated effect from some or all delay event

Doing delay analysis can have this situation. We have 5 delay events.

If we need to see a combined effect of delay event 1 and delay event 2, we have to create a new project and insert those delay event. Then if we need to see a combined effect of delay event 1 and delay event 3, we have to create a new project and insert those delay event. This process go on and we can end up with more than 20 projects.

Then we find out the Baseline need to make a small adjustment (for example: add 1 more relationship), we have to edit all 20 projects.

This’s gonna be crazy.

I will show you how to make a combined effect report without having to create more than 20 projects by using Multi-project model in Primavera P6.

We have a Baseline project like below picture:

For 5 Delay Event we gonna create them in 5 projects:

Impacted As-Planned Delay Analysis - Using Primavera P6 to see combined, consolidated effect from some or all delay event-2

Now if we want to see effect of Delay Event 1 only, we open 2 projects: Baseline and Delay Event 1. Continue reading “Impacted As-Planned Delay Analysis : Using Primavera P6 to see combined / consolidated effect from some or all delay event”
