Oracle Primavera P6 Professional

  • 4 days
  • Capelle a/d IJssel
  • Classroom

Primaned has decades of experience with the implementation and training in the use of Primavera. This training has been developed together with our planning engineers and technical consultants. Good planning is much more than just “bar racking”. In this module you will learn how to properly handle the software, also what a planner needs to be able to make a good planning. You will learn how to create a project yourself, including activities, relationships, schedules, resources and progress, based on a case that is interwoven with the manual we have written.

This module is part of the step Tooling from the Project Controls Programme.

This training can be followed remote and in a classroom. Please indicate your preferences on the registration form. Read about the plan of remote training.

  • Correctly interpreting Activity Duration in Primavera P6

    Duration and Calendar Duration, Time and Units/Time explained, P6 basic. Time is of the essence. Both in project control and in our personal lives. As we’ve been dealing with time since childhood, you would assume we have learned to communicate on it effectively and unambiguously. But when someone says: “this activity is going to take […]

  • Primavera P6 and the Longest Path

    There is more to showing THE Critical Path in Primavera than your project manager can imagine. Primavera allows you to change certain settings to define the criticality of activities: you can define a threshold value for total float, or choose for the longest path instead of a total float-based critical path.

In order to achieve this Primavera P6 uses the concept of “Global” data objects and “Project” (or embedded) […]

  • Two + Two types of Float

    When using the Critical Path Method (CPM) in traditional project management software, Total Float (TF) and Free Float (FF) are calculated, which most project managers know and use. But there is more to it. We can gain deeper insight in which timeframe an activity can shift, and the effects on the related activities by calling […]
