Question No: 2
An activity has an Original Duration of 10, and a Remaining Duration of 10. The Actual Start is assigned to the activity. Physical % is updated to equal 80%.
What is the Remaining Duration for this activity?
Question No: 3
The Project Manager selects the “Update units when costs change on resource assignments” option on Calculations tab in Project Details. The Budgeted Cost is $2,000 and the Budgeted Units is 80 for the resource on an activity. If the User assigns the activity
an Actual Cost of $1,000, what is the Actual Units for the resource?
Answer: B Explanation: Units
At Completion Units – the best estimate of units (typically hours) required for the resource to complete the activity. Calculated as (Remaining Units) (Actual Units).
Budgeted Units – the estimated units required of resource to complete the activity before the activity begins.
Actual Units – the actual units the resource has expended on this activity?
Remaining Units – the estimated units required to complete an activity that is in progress. Before the activity is started, the remaining units are the same as the budgeted units.
When the activity is in-progress, the actual units (received from CEFMS) are subtracted from the remaining units.
When the activity is marked completed, the remaining units are set to zero.

You can update individual project status from the Waterline Analysis/Scenario.
You can create a new portfolio from the Waterline Analysis.
Explanation: Use the Capacity Planning page to perform What-if analysis, graphically change project forecast dates, and apply waterline analysis techniques to assist with critical, executive-level decision making. Before assessing capacity or demand on resources, create resource and role estimates for each project. During your analysis, you can create and update scenarios that provide varying snapshots of project and role allocation data. After conducting your analysis, you can create new portfolios containing only the projects that meet your planning criteria (D).
Note: Create Portfolio Scenarios to capture Portfolio data for comparisons and analysis. Create Portfolio Scenarios to capture Portfolio data for comparisons and analysis

What takes the highest precedence during Resource Leveling?
Explanation: See step 6A) below in note 1.
Note 1: To configure resource leveling options and priorities:
->1) Click the Projects menu and select Open Projects.
->2) On the Open Projects dialog box, open the projects for which you need to configure resource leveling options and priorities.
->3) On the Projects navigation bar, click EPS.
->4) On the EPS page, click the View menu and select Columns.
->5) In the Customize Columns dialog box, expand the General section in the Available Columns list and double-click Project Leveling Priority to add it to the Selected Columns list and click OK.
->6) On the EPS page:
->a. Enter a value in the Project Leveling Priority field for each project.
Note: Enter a value from 1, the highest priority, to 100, the lowest. The default is 10.
->b. Click the Actions menu and select Save (Ctrl S).
Note 2: Resource leveling is an automated process that can change the start date of activities. Level resources in your project schedule to ensure that resource demand does not exceed resource availability. Typically, you level during the forward pass through a project. This determines the earliest dates to schedule an activity when sufficient resources will be available to perform the task. If forward leveling delays the project#39;s early finish date, a backward pass might be necessary to recalculate late dates.
During resource leveling, the resource requirements of all scheduled activities are compared to the maximum quantity available at the time of leveling, and an activity is only scheduled to occur when its resource demands can be met. To accomplish this, tasks can be delayed to resolve resource availability conflicts.

Question No: 8
You are a Project Manager whose projects are integrated with Financial Management System (FMS). The FMS pushes Actual Costs and Actual Hours to your projects as of the Actual Date. Updating Percent complete using the pushed Actual Dates, Actual Costs, and Actual Hours has created inaccurate pictures of the overall % complete, because there are steps within activities that clearly have not completed.
Which Percent Complete Type would be the best selection for activities in this project?
Explanation: Use physical to give a selection corresponding to the actual state.
Note: Parameter: Percent Complete Type
Details: Allows users to select the percent complete type of an activity.
Values: Physical, Duration, Units
Maps to field: ACTIVITY.PERCENTCOMPLETETYPE
Use case: Filter activities in a report based on the percent complete type of the activity. Note 2: There are many different methods for calculation of actual progress in Primavera
P6. These methods involve using many fields and settings, including:
Duration % Complete Units % Complete Physical % Complete Percent Complete Type Activity % Complete Performance % Complete
Earned Value settings of the WBS Elements
