Abstract: Have you ever faced the challenge of reviewing a monthly schedule update that includes both progress updates and non-progress revisions? To effectively evaluate potential schedule impacts, a schedule reviewer needs to separate the progress updates from the non-progress revisions. Primavera P6™ software contains several features that can assist in the review and analysis of project schedules; it allows the Scheduler to save copies of project schedules as “Baselines”. These Baseline schedules can also be updated using the “Update Baseline” utility. In this paper, the authors’ explore the Update Baseline feature, the myriad of options available, and how it can be used to review and analyze project schedules.
