Project summary task not updating wordperfect updating fields
“Hammock”* and “Level of Effort” (LOE) tasks in project schedules provide two similar approaches to summarizing and reporting the overall time consumed by a collection of other tasks.Typically, hammock or LOE tasks are used to represent the indirect management and other support activities associated with the primary tasks, and they are often loaded with management and other indirect resources.
In most respects the scheduling aspects of these LOE activities are similar to the scheduling of summary bars in P6 schedules (and summary tasks in MSP), with the key difference being that there is no need for common hierarchical structure or activity coding of the related primary activities.* The “hammock” name refers to the simple method of suspending a sleeping net or cloth (i.e. When first described in hand-drawn activity-on-arrow (AOA) network diagrams, the time-summarizing activity took the shape of a simple curved line slung between two nodes – i.e. Primavera scheduling tools have long provided explicit activity types for specifying hammock or LOE activities.Primavera Project Planner (P3) and Primavera Sure Trak Project Manager, for example, both included specific hammock activity types that would be specially treated in the schedule calculations.MSP’s response to changes in the linked dates is similar to its response when dates are entered manually: i.e.it sets an early constraint (SNET or FNET) and adjusts the task duration so that the task spans between the two linked dates.
