Guidance around master/sub-projects and performance RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm curious about anyone's experience/comments around the performance of Project Professional when working with Master/sub-projects in Project Server 2010?

    What sort of limitations exist in your experience?

    Is a 3-layer hierarchy, with a single schedule at the highest level, containing 6 + “second level” schedules, all of which contain 2 or more “Project” level schedules.

    My thoughts are it would not perform very well, and would better be dealt with using reports that join data using custom fields…


    If not now, when?

  • Yes, theere would be definitely a hit on the performance, both from Client Machine side and Server side.

    The question is what are you trying to achieve. If it just to achieve a roll-up of values, you might do better with reporting.

    The main goal of MAster-Sub project concept is while providing roll-up reporting, to provide the ability to several PM's manage their own project without having to open and work in somebody else's schedule. If this requirement is not there, then you might be better off handling this in a different way.
