P6-Reporter - TAPS and Turnaround Self-Serve Dashboards

When your team uses TAPS to complete updates in your turnaround schedule, you have access to TAPS information that is not OOTB in P6. Complete the updates and then from P6 you can display the TAPS update information in a report or layout. Although that route is workable, there is an easier way.
Give the team access to the TAPS update information (the user will not have to login to P6) by automatically updating TAPS reports (along with other Turnaround reports) in self-serve dashboards using P6-Reporter (previously EP-datawarehouse).

The process is simple. Complete updates to the schedule using TAPS, and once the update/analysis is complete, create a snapshot of the project schedule using P6-Reporter. Project snapshots can be generated automatically or manually. The snapshot updates the P6-Reporter TAPS reports in a self-serve dashboard.

Example 1

TAPS EV Labor Units by Snapshot Date and Resource Name

Using TAPS to update your schedule gives you access to automatically cancel an activity with a single barcode scan or a single click using TAPS mobile. The cancelled activity information is available in self-serve dashboards in P6-Reporter as well.


Current Hours - Budgeted and Cancelled Hours by Resource


Hours by WBS - Cancelled, Budgeted and Remaining

These are just a few of the available reports in P6-Reporter, updated using snapshots. Give your team quick, easy access to self-serve dashboards containing current project information.
