Reviews

Reviewer: Tom Grant MSc BSc, Principal, TAG Consultancy, Review: The P6 PPM Manual by Paul Harris is a well-crafted guide into the concepts and functionality of Oracle Primavera P6. The manual contains 30 chapters of essential information that P6 users will require to get the most out of this complex scheduling tool. It makes the critical distinction between planning and tracking a non-resourced and a resourced plan and explains the necessary processes in a clear and concise manner.Most chapters are reinforced with a workshop and this gives students the all-important "hands on" time with the software. I believe that this is the best way to understand and learn a new software tool and the workshop data is practical and relevant. The P6 topics are introduced in a logical manner that follows the PMBOK Project Lifecycle stages. Once the P6 interface is understood, the process of building a project is undertaken. The main deliverables are defined in the WBS, the work is broken down into activities, logic is added, calendars are defined and scheduling is undertaken. There are a considerable number of preferences and settings that influence the scheduling calculations and all are explained in a timely and precise fashion. I have been teaching Primavera scheduling to a wide range of industries for over 10 years and I believe that Paul's training material offers the best combination of functional and practical training, delivered in a style that is easy to comprehend.
