108 - Primavera Project Management - Moving from P3 to P6

OVERVIEW

This two-day course is specially designed for users moving from Primavera Project Planner (P3) to Primavera 6.0. Numerous charts list how P3 fields and functionality map to Primavera 6.0, enabling users to leverage their existing knowledge of P3 and rapidly adapt to new features in Primavera 6.0. The course begins with navigation, menus, and terminology in Primavera 6.0, and introduces new ways to view layouts and run reports. The course also details how basic tasks in the project management life cycle are executed in Primavera 6.0, including how to create activities, assign and analyze resources, and update the project plan. An appendix at the back of the manual covers how to convert projects from P3 to Primavera 6.0. (Please note that this course is designed for existing users of P3. Those who wish to learn Primavera 6.0, but are not P3 users, should register for Course 102.)
