P6-Auditor v4- How to Find What Happened to a Missing Activity Code

In P6 we sometimes discover data anomalies that do not make sense and need to find out what happened. Emerald’s P6-Auditor tool provides an easy and quick way to investigate these anomalies. The P6-Auditor reads the data in the P6 audit tables in a spreadsheet format, making these tables much more legible and searchable.

Let’s take a look at how to go about finding what has happened to an activity code that is no longer in our project that once contained values for the activity code.

I love watching the TV show Mayday – the forensic work that goes into understanding how and why a plane crashes is fascinating to me. Key in any investigation of what went wrong is recovery of the flight data recorder. This “Black Box” records virtually everything that happens in the control system of the aircraft and enables investigators to understand exactly what went wrong.

We implemented our P6-Auditor for one of our clients a couple of years ago, and a few days after go-live, we got a call from the help desk that users across the organization were reporting that all of their activity code assignments for a particular Global Code had disappeared.
