In last month’s newsletter, we discussed two new features available in the Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM R15.2 Activities page; the newly added Basic Gantt View and the View Resource Assignments pop up window, available when making new Resource Assignments on an Activity.

This month we will expand on our introduction to the new Basic Gantt feature by outlining some of the ways the new enhancement can add value when updating a schedule. The customisations available in the Basic Gantt View and the efficiency of the simplified layout allow you to generate targeted reports on-the-go and modify the appearance of the Gantt Chart to achieve the optimal visual representation of your Activities.
