Adding Columns to your Enterprise Project Structure (EPS) is a useful feature in Primavera P6 EPPM. It allows the organization or users to customize their activity table while, at the same time, displaying the important information that is needed for managing their projects. By adding columns, more data can be displayed. This is helpful for meetings with Project managers or Stakeholders where full disclosure and transparency are of paramount importance.
Project Managers often offer guidance as to which additional columns are required in the EPS to ensure that key data for the projects are captured. Customizing the layout by adding additional columns can be a great timesaver. It also helps users to pinpoint key data that they need to monitor project progress at different times throughout the project life cycle.
By additional columns, any project member will effectively have access to the additional data provided including, baseline, budget, number of activities, project codes, percent complete, etc.. This is also a great time saver as project team members will not have search for this information elsewhere. This Primavera P6 EPPM capability, can also be used as another form of communication between project managers and team members.
