PC PROJECT MANAGEMENT 1 USER'S MANUAL



I. INTRODUCTION


PCPM is a system of interactive programs for project management using
the critical path method. The system is designed to handle all
necessary functions internally or allow the more sophisticated user to
build and modify files on his/her own by making use of system editing
software. PCPM is menu-driven, that is, a menu of available options is
displayed to the terminal for the user to choose the desired option.
When that particular function has been completed, PCPM will again
display the menu.

A. PREPARATION

1. The_Node_Network

To use PCPM the user must first have constructed a node network
representation of the project. Each activity must have a
description of up to 30 characters, a duration (time), and node
numbers.

The node network numbering must be performed in a specific
fashion. Each node is assigned an integer number from 1 to
1000 and nodes are numbered in ascending order with the first
node having the lowest number and the last node having the
highest number. The "from" node for each activity must be less
than (and not equal to) the "to" node for that activity. Note
that not all numbers between the start and finish have to be
used; in fact, spacing should be maintained to allow for
future schedule changes.

2. The_Input_Worksheet

Before input at the terminal is attempted, it is helpful to
make an input worksheet. Enter the information from the node
network. (See samples in the appendix).

Optional entries for each activity are the report finish date,
percent complete, subcontractor name/code or other comment, and
activity cost.

Any report finish date entered must be "legal". To be legal a
date can not fall on a weekend or holiday when working days is
the unit of time being used. Also, a legal date can not be
prior to the start date of the project.

PCPM may be run using any unit of time the user specifies. It
is, however, up to the user to maintain consistency of input.
Examples of possibilites are:

Working days (does include weekends but not holidays).

Calendar days (does not include holidays).









PC PROJECT MANAGEMENT 2 USER'S MANUAL



Weeks (activity duration must be converted by the
user - e.g., 10 days duration should be entered as 2).

B. ENTERING_THE_BASE_FILE

Using PCPM, a sample input file such as that on pages 4-5 can be
created. Other functions, including creation of a holiday file,
critical path and cash flow analyses, and sorting output are also
performed by using PCPM.

The user is guided interactively through each option of the menu.
After each option is complete, the system returns to the menu.

C. SYSTEM_GENERATED_FILES

Accessory files to the input file are created by the system based
upon the input file. It is, therefore, important that this file be
accurately entered. In general, the existence of system created
files can be ignored by the user. They are merely cogs in the
machinery that allows PCPM to run. The following information is
included to satisfy the more curious users.

As options of the Main Menu are performed, the system creates
accessory files. These accessory files are described with the base
file name and a three letter extension. For example, when
utilizing OPTION 4 - CREATE/CHANGE HOLIDAYS, the system creates
(automatically) a file denoted by BASEFILENAME.HOL.

Here are some of the system created files for example file "LLP":

LLP.CFA - output file for cash flow analysis
LLP.CPM - input file for option 5 (main file)
LLP.CST - output file for current cost report
LLP.DAY - file of working vs. project days from Option 12
LLP.HOL - file of holidays created by Option 3
LLP.LGS - file of data for sorts used by Options 6,7,8, & 9
LLP.PRE - output file containing predecessor printout
LLP.SRT - sorted output file created by option 8
LLP.SUC - output file containing successor printout
LLP.UPD - updated input file created by Option 5

D. CHANGING_THE_INPUT_FILE


Changing the input file is easily done by changing node
connections, durations, and/or adding report finish dates. Once
the modifications to the input file are made, rerun Option 5. The
system will quickly calculate the new durations, critical path, and
completion times.

INFORMATION ON THE PCPM SYSTEM

PCPM is a menu driven Critical Path Method. Several utilities make
this system a valuable tool for project management. Input can be done
interactively in PCPM or be edited outside the PCPM system using EDLIN
(IBM) or EDCOL (P&L).

Using PCPM, you are guided interactively through each menu option. As
each function is completed the screen returns to the main menu.

Information and messages from the system are displayed in CAPS
surrounded by "****". User responses should be made in UPPER CASE
LETTERS only. Answers to prompts are provided in paranthesis, like
(Y/N). The first answer (Y) is the default ( key) answer.

For detailed information refer to the PCPM USERS MANUAL. If further
assistance is needed, call (916) 446-1613.

Hit ENTER when you are ready to return to the main menu.

III. IN_CASE_OF_SYSTEM_ERRORS

As many error traps as possible have been included to insure
efficient usage. However, PCPM does not check every item each
time in order to keep processing time at a minimum.

If the syStem appears to be "hung up", use the CTRL BREAK keys.
Enter the system again and check for unconnected nodes, or illegal
date usage. The most common error is made by editing the data
files outside the PCPM system and leaving out commas or putting in
extra data. The simplest solution is to perform editing within
the PCPM system.
