Lesson 1: Introduction to MS Project 2007If your company has a project that needs to be completed, you're going to want to make sure that every aspect of it is organized so that it goes efficiently and according to budget.
Lesson 2: Creating and Defining ProjectsWhen you want to start a new project, you have two choices. You can either create a new project using Project Guide or start from scratch by entering information on the default opening screen as shown below.
Lesson 3: CalendarsIn MS Project, the calendar shows the various hours in a workday, the days in a work week, holidays, and nonworking days on which a project schedule is based. Project allows you to set Base, Project, Task, and Resource calendars.
Lesson 4: Organizing TasksIn the last lesson, we learned how to create tasks. However, if you just created a long list of tasks, managing these tasks could get very daunting. Your task list should serve as an outline for your project.
Lesson 5: Working with Task Duration, Estimates, and DependenciesWhenever you create a task, you have to set the duration for the task, or how long it will take to complete. However, before you enter a duration for a task, you must know the three task types.
Lesson 6: Working with Deadlines, Constraints, and Task CalendarsOf course, when you have a project, you're going to need the project to be completed by a certain date. With that, you'll have deadlines for tasks so that each aspect of the project runs smoothly and on time.
Lesson 7: Working with ResourcesSo far in this course, we've mainly talked about tasks because these are the elements that drive your project forward. However, in order to complete tasks, you need resources.
Lesson 8: Customizing and FormattingAs with any Microsoft software program, you can customize and format different elements to give them the look and feel you want, or to tailor them to your own needs.
Lesson 9: Resource ManagementThe key to successful projects and excellent project management is finding the right resources. What makes a resource right for your project will be based on a couple of contributing factors.
Lesson 10: Tracking ProgressWe've mentioned baselines already in this course. Now it's time to actually learn what a baseline is and how to use it in Project. By definition, a baseline is the detailed project against which actual work is tracked.
Lesson 11: Running ReportsFinally! You've done it. You've taken the time to enter all your tasks, create dependencies, enter your resources, and assign your resources to tasks Now you get your reward for all that work. Now you get to run reports.
Lesson 12: Printing Project InformationYou can print any information that you have in your project. This includes the various views. In this lesson, we're going to do a quick run through of how to print in Project.
Lesson 13: Consolidating Projects and ResourcesNow that we've learned how to use Project to create and manage projects, we're going to talk about pooling resources, consolidating project plans, and assignments so that they can be shared with other projects.
