Cost loading a schedule allows project managers to make forecasts for their projects’ targets - and track whether they are under or over budget as the project progresses. In this course, you will learn how to perform basic and advanced cost loading within Primavera P6, using resources, roles, and expenses. Beyond the basics of creating and assigning resources and roles, you will also learn how to account for non-uniform distributions of work using curves and future bucket planning. With a fully resource loaded schedule, this course will also cover how to analyze the cost and unit information with both spreadsheets and graphs - allowing you to track your budget and resource usage throughout the project’s lifecycle.
