Event Details

Event Description:

Proper planning and estimating your project schedule is essential in any medium to large project. However, even the most effective planning, estimation and communication strategies can be rendered ineffective by improper (or inadequate) maintenance of the schedule and the inability to report current status.

During this session, we will discuss various tracking options available in the Microsoft Project desktop tool. Advantages, disadvantages and appropriate right-sizing of tracking, updating and reporting techniques will be discussed, along with best practices. Topics below will be covered, but not limited to:

  • Percentage Complete Tracking Tools (including Microsoft Project calculation options to make this technique more effective)
  • Task and Assignment Time-phased Tracking
  • Using the Microsoft Project Tracking Table
  • Reschedule Remaining Work
  • Customizing Fields and Views for Tracking and Reporting 
  • Utilizing the new Reporting Tab in Microsoft Project 2013

Learning Objectives:

During this event, the student will learn about how Microsoft Project can be used effectively during project execution and monitor and control phases to maintain an accurate project schedule and communicate project status.
