Physical % Complete (PPC) Does Not Roll Up on New Tasks, Even After Baselining RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    We are using Project Server 2010.  We have been using Earned Value Management (EVM) to measure project performance.  We set the project to "Physical % Complete" and confirm that all of the tasks show PPC in the Earned Value Method field (Advanced tab).  However, on a recent project, we added new tasks and baselined those tasks separately.  However they do not roll up into the PPC value in the Summary Bar(s).

    Since the tasks are already PPC/EVM and baselined, what steps do I follow to correct this roll-up issue?  I read on another post something about the Project Status Date (Project Information).  Our status date is Tuesdays (weekly).  Do the PM's need to change this date every week?

  • Indeed Julie you do need to update the status date at each update. Otherwise the new tasks will be in the future (compared to the status date not being updated) and never taken into account for EVM. Not also that the new tasks need to have work resources with a rate assigned to them.

    Hope this helps,
