Inter Project Dependency Reporting - Options RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    A client I'm working for has requested the ability to see inter-project dependencies across a group of projects (e.g. Program or Portfolio grouping) with a critical path visible throughout, allowing the user to see where a critical path existing across multiple projects.

    Is this possible without having to 'daisy chain' projects via the Subprojects button, or via a custom SSRS report?  This is key functionality and we come across this deficiency on every client engagement.

    Environment:  EPM 2013

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Nock,

    I'd suggest you to insert your sub-projects into a master project. By default, each inserted project is calculated like summary task:

    Thus calculating the critical path on your master project with this option checked will give you the overall critical path.

    Critical path means depedencies between tasks thus I believe you have to go through using sub-projects and links.


    Hope this helps,
