Description

Suitable for people who understand the basics of P6 but want a short guide to give them insight into the less intuitive features of the software. It is packed with screen shots, constructive tips and is written in plain English. The book is based on the P6 Version 18 but may be used with earlier versions of P6 as this book points out the differences where appropriate.
The book picks out many of the key aspects from the author's exiting books and adds a substantial amount of new and original text to produce a pocket guide that omits describing the intuitive and obvious functions and concentrates on the issues that many users get stuck on or find hard to understand.

Review quote

Project scheduling in software is a complex undertaking and the seemingly "user friendly" environment presented by Oracle Primavera P6 can sometimes lull a user into a false sense of security. In this" 99 Tricks and Traps" book Paul has cast a spotlight on the potential pitfalls in the software that can trap the unwary. He explains the P6 environment and terminology with great clarity and makes vital recommendations about the optimum settings for the program. The book is well presented, with plenty of diagrams and screenshots, and should be considered an essential component of any professional P6 scheduler's library. Thomas A Grant MSc, BSc. Director TAG Primavera Consultancy.
