Microsoft Project 2016 Real World Scheduling is called "real world" because the author wrote it drawing upon his 30+ years of experience consulting with contractors to help them meet their construction scheduling software needs. He knows how contractors use scheduling software, what's important to them - and what is not! This manual has been tested and retested in both the classroom and the company training room. It will guide you thru some of the quirks of MS Project 2016 as well as teach you how use the software the way contractors use it. Other software manuals are often hundreds of pages long filled with dense text that wastes your time trying to cover every corner and nuance of the software - ultimately leaving readers more confused than before they started. (This manual can easily be used with the MS Project 2013 and 2010 software.) Microsoft Project 2016 Real World Scheduling assumes that the reader has no previous exposure to the software and takes the reader through the process of creating a schedule covering the same features that a contractor would include on their typical schedule. This includes creating and saving the schedule, covering numerous formatting options to customize the look of the schedule, working with calendars including 50% and 100% weather calendars, then activity coding the schedule to organize the tasks using both Custom Task Groups and Summary Tasks. Different views of the schedule are explored and from there the schedule is resource loaded and cost loaded, including a real world analysis of an over-allocation of resources. The schedule is then Baselined and updated covering all possible update scenarios that may actually occur.With this manual and a few hours of your time, you will be ready to effectively use MS Project 2016 on a real project.

"Microsoft Project is a project management software program that is designed to assist a project manager in developing a plan, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing the budget, and analyzing workloads. This course is designed specifically to teach students the fundamentals of working with Microsoft Project. Students will learn to work with task, resource, and other views, and work with tables. Students will then create a new project plan, set plan properties, create and customize a plan calendar. Additionally, the student will add tasks, create recurring task, import tasks from Excel and Outlook, create a work breakdown structure, link tasks and create dependencies, and modify task properties. Then students will create resources, work with a resource pool, modify resource calendars, and assign resources. Finally, students will prepare a project plan for finalization."--Resource description page.

This guide has been created to serve as that comprehensive reference and training guide, assembling content and best practices honed over many years of Microsoft Project and general project management training.Many training guides on technology are primarily manuals on features and functions of the software. The goal of this book is to show why those features and functions are important from a project management standpoint (based on PMI's Project Management Body of Knowledge, PMBOK), and then demonstrate how to effectively leverage that value. When used cover-to-cover, this text serves as a comprehensive guide to running a project from initiation to closeout with guides along the way for how to use Microsoft Project.The information in this book was selected based on our 20+ years of project management and Microsoft Project consulting experience, and covers Microsoft Project 2013 Standard, Microsoft Project 2013 Professional, Microsoft Project Server 2013, Microsoft Project Web Application 2013 (PWA) and Microsoft Project Online 2013 for Office 365.
