As a professional project planner and scheduler I have used a number of planning andscheduling software packages for the management of a range of project types and sizes.There appeared to be very little literature aimed at the professional who understandshow to run projects but requires a practical guide on how to use planning andscheduling software. The first books I published were user guides/training manuals for Primavera SureTrak and P3 users. These were well received by professional projectmanagers and schedulers, so I decided to turn my attention to Microsoft Project 2000,2002 & 2003 and Primavera Enterprise TeamPlay, P3e and P3e/c. I trust this book willassist you in understanding how to use P3 on your projects. Please contact me if youhave any comments on this book.
