In Primavera P6 -> Resource Usage Profile, we may have a problem that Unit of measure is not showing.
There could be various causes for this issue:
1) If the resource is a Material resource, the Unit of measure is not specified.
If the resource is a Material resource, you will need to specify the Unit of measure in Enterprise, Resources in the Details tab.
2) If it is a Labor or Non-labor resources, the Show Unit label is not selected.
If it is a Labor or Nonlabor resources, then make sure that in Edit, User Preferences in the Time Units tab the Show Unit label check box is checked. Continue reading “Why is Unit of Measure not showing in Resource Usage Profile in Primavera P6”

We may wonder How does P6 calculates and displays summary information for costs, quantities, user defined fields, dates, durations, float, progress…
I will explain it in this article.
These calculations and display summaries are based on the currently visible activities. Activities removed from the layout by filters are not included in the calculations and summaries.
Costs and quantities:
P6 totals cost and quantity data items, such as budgeted cost and budgeted quantity, by adding the values for each activity in the summary.
If you display early dates, P6 shows the earliest early (or actual) start and the latest early (or actual) finish dates. The same rules apply for late dates and baseline early and late dates. Continue reading “How does Primavera P6 summarize data in the Summary / Grouping Band”

In Primavera P6, we can quickly identify behind schedule and over budget activity by using graphical indicator in User Defined Field.
I will show you how to do it.
Supposed that we have a project which has baseline. After update progress, we can show these column the see whether an activity is behind schedule:

- Variance – BL Project Finish : Duration between BL Project Finish date and current Finish date. Calculated as BL Project Finish – Finish
Now we will create Indicator.
Go to menu Enterprise -> User Defined Fields. Continue reading “How to quickly identify Behind Schedule and Over Budget activity by Indicator UDF in Primavera P6”
