Primavera layouts can be tailored to any number different views, ranges or color combinations to help the user present to the project team. The goal of a good layout is to convey the project plan to the key stakeholders giving them all the pertinent information.
When creating a schedule layout it is important to identify who your target customer will be. If the layout will be issued to a project manager, it may need to include a total float column where as an external stakeholder may only need to see start / finish dates, duration and baseline variance.
Creating a New Layout
When creating a layout from primavera, I typically use an existing layout as a starting point. For this example we will start with “4-week look ahead”, a layout we created in a previous example. When you get to the “Save Layout As” dialog box you will have the option to save the layout one of four ways (EPPM specific in a standalone version, PPM, you will only be able to save it as current user).
