Release 19.10

Update of EPS activity codes during project update

With this release you can now update Activity Codes on EPS level with a project update quickly and easily. There are also some bugfixes as well as performance & usability improvements.

With the last release we had implemented the possibility in the proimporter to assign activity codes on EPS level in the future. Thus, it is possible to import sub project plans, which are in the form of activity codes in your project plan, into Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM without changing global data.   

You will certainly also receive regular updates of the sub projects of your project consortium. When importing various EPS codes, however, it quickly becomes complex. You can either import the entire file into Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM and thus overwrite EPS activity codes and other objects, or you can prepare the file to be imported manually for the database in advance. The latter, however, also requires extraordinary knowledge about the structure of a XER file.   

The proimporter enables a simple way to import EPS activity codes safely into your Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM database. The tool examines already existing EPS activity codes and sets the import properties correctly - without reusing or without changing existing codes. All these default import actions can be further adjusted by the users. This makes it possible to quickly and easily perform a customized XER import in just a few minutes.

Enhancement of validation

Two further validation processes were added:

Older Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM versions partially assign a data date that is before the project start. This is no longer permitted in current Oracle® Primavera P6 EPPM versions. A quickfix for this logic error is also offered.

Under certain circumstances, the What-If flags of the WBS nodes may not have been correctly exported to an XER file. The validation examines all WBS nodes and also offers a quickfix for this logic error.

Performance and Usability Improvements

In addition to the improvement of the installation routine to simplify user rights management in server operation, the user manual and the installation instructions have been revised.

The following bugfixes are included in version 19.10:

  • Lookup of baselines doesn't perform the same every time
  • Project Update freezes with certain input files
  • Validation-Step: WBSUniqueValidationStep performance issue
  • What-if status can only be applied or removed at the project level
  • EPS Import Action Code Type 'to Project scope' → Code Values set to 'ignore' are still imported when EPS scoped tape already exists.
