Level: Advanced
Author(s): Paul T. Reeser
Venue: 2017 AACE International Annual Meeting, Orlando, FL

Abstract: This practical applications paper demonstrates how to categorize relationships into Six major groups (Fragnet, Crew, Phase, Milestone, Change Order, Anomalies) so that logic relationship analysis can be executed quickly and simply. Software products to be used include standard scheduling software such as Oracle Primavera P6® or Microsoft Project®, as well as spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel® or OpenOffice Calc®. Once grouped into their respective categories, two main benefits are found; viewing relationships for consistency and discovering issues more easily than in the native scheduling software. This paper uses actual projects as references, and will demonstrate to the user how to setup data tables and formula columns to categorize the relationships and identify typical issues.
