Until now the activity data that you have inputted has reached the stage of the relationship between activities or relationships (see also how to add activity relationships in Primavera).
You can see the data you input on the bar chart; it looks like this:
As shown in the bar chart, the activity data has not been calculated sequentially by Primavera. This data is still data that only describes the duration and relationship between activities that have not formed sequential logic according to the relationship that has been inputted.
You need to do primavera scheduling to form a sequential logical relationship of data according to the relationship between activities.
Before scheduling, in this example, make sure the Data Date and Project Planned Start in the Schedule Dates section are filled in on July 1, 2021, at 08.00 AM.
To do the scheduling, the way is as follows:
- Make sure the project to be scheduled has been opened, then go to the activity page.
- Go to the Tools menu -> Schedule…
- Before scheduling, you can select the scheduling criteria by clicking the Options…
For now, you can leave the Schedule criteria by default:
- Or, if needed, you can change the criteria for critical activities such as the options in the picture above (Total Float less than or equal to , or Longest Path).
- Click the Close button to return to the Schedule page.
- On the Schedule page, click the Schedule button to schedule. You can also include a Log file as in the image below. Save the log file in the location of your computer.
Project duration: 604 days.
Project completed on November 7, 2023, at 05:00 PM.
In this log, you can check:
- How many activities.
- How many activities have been started (in progress).
- How many activities have been completed (completed).
- How many activities do not have a predecessor or successor.
- How many activities with constraints.
- What are the critical activities.
