By using the Baseline functionality you can compare up to four updated versions of a project file in ScheduleReaderTM
After importing your Baselines into ScheduleReaderTM, in the Gantt chart, you can see the graphical presentation of the Baselines bars given right below the original activity bar so you can easily compare the schedule changes that have been made.
Note: When you compare projects use the same project with the same activities IDs. The baseline values in ScheduleReaderTM are displayed as exported in the .xer files.
When calculating earned value from a Baseline "At competition values with current date" option is used.
In Gantt chart, you can see the graphical presentation of the Baselines bars given right below the original activity bar so you can easily compare the schedule changes that have been made.
Legend of bars displayed in Gantt chart:
- Light yellow bar shows the Project baseline
- Orange bar shows the Primary baseline
- Dark yellow bar shows the Secondary baseline
- Purple bar shows the Tertiary baseline
Note: Customizing the Gantt chart can be done using the Bars feature, from the Format ribbon. Using this dialog you can change the colors of the baselines, add or remove labels or hide the baselines bars.
To get the exact values of Baselines, in Activity table you should add the corresponding Baselines columns:
Note: If baseline column are empty, this means that that there is no change made on these activities from the original project. If in the Baseline project there are more activities than in the main project, these activities will not be shown in Gantt chart, science there is no activity in the main project to compare with.
