Elapsed Days from MSP only can be imported manually to Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM, yet. With the proimporter you import Edays cleanly, automatically and without any additional effort.
Logic differences between Microsoft Project® tasks and Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM activities are always a challenge for the import, because so far Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM does not consider these or only partly.
Especially with more complicated processes, such as the Hammock Task, a logic bridging is necessary. A Hammock Task is a process that start and end dates are synchronized with the start date of another task and the end date of another subsequent task. In this way, a macro operation spans a certain phase of a schedule, which is to be considered super ordinate, for example, for resource planning or for certain evaluation purposes.
When importing to Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM, the database now does not recognize these Hammock Tasks from Microsoft Project® as such and the information is lost during the import. The proimporter recognizes the information correctly and imports these tasks as Level of Effort activity to Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM. Thus, data loss can be avoided and the appointment chain can be imported cleanly.
Elapsed Days are also a regular challenge for project managers. In Microsoft Project® it is possible to ignore the duration of an activity in the stored calendar. This is especially useful for processes that - beyond the normal working day - also take place on weekends (e.g. drying concrete), or for machine availability that can last 24 hours a day. With the proimporter you import these edays directly from the MPP file into Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM. The tool uses a 24/7 project calendar for this purpose. This ensures that every day is a working day and that the deadlines are correctly met.
