P6 User Group November 12th Meeting

Subjects: P6R8.2 Using BI Publisher 11g
Presenters: Paul G. Ciszewski, PMP – President of Dynamic Consulting

Recording of webinar:

P6 EPPM R8.x was released with a new reporting database and a new report development tool called Oracle BI Publisher. BI Publisher allows users to create pixel-perfect reports for P6.

This presentation will be a step-by-step process (using slides) for creating an S-Curve report using BIP 11g – including data models. The end result will be an S-Curve report that plots planned hours, baseline hours, and earned value hours for the project’s duration. Then, the data model will be expanded so that only hours for a specific activity code/value (such as Phase or Contractor) will be plotted. Both S-Curve reports can then be run from P6.

This presentation will include an explanation of the new P6 extended tables (the reporting database), examples of the SQL for BIP’s data model that is needed to extract the data from P6, and examples of using BIP’s Report Layout Editor to build the S-Curve chart.

  2. Introduction to BI Publisher’s Data Model and the SQL to extract data for S-Curve
