Watching this video reminds me of business trips to South Korea. I traveled to work with Samsung SDI and LG Chemical on custom lithium battery development. Later projects, I met with Samsung and LG to work on cell phone hardware platforms development.
On most trips I traveled on Delta, United, or Korea Air. Typically, I stayed in downtown Seoul in Gangnam district, and from there traveled to manufacturing facilities. Tried to squeeze in some brief sight seeing.
These days I do not travel as much, and work and family keeps me in Seattle.
You can upload your Microsoft Project File online to SharePoint, to take advantage of Microsoft Project Web App collaboration features.
Suppose you have multiple PMs updating multiple MPP files, and you want to provide an all-up PMO status of all projects. Now you can publish the MPP files to Project Web App (PWA) on SharePoint, and then monitor the all-projects view, or utilize an Odata connection to PWA to create a visualization dashboard using Power BI. Each PM can update their own MPP files while the broader team and management can synchronize and roll up data on all projects.
Sync/Publish an MPP to PWA Workflow:
Go to your MS Project desktop software.
Under the File menu, choose manage accounts.
Add a Connection
Configure with your target SharePoint site, in this case we use the demo location:
In the checkbox below, select, choose an account. This will ensure you are not forced to the incorrect account at startup. For example you maybe using two different logins if you are working with different customer/clients.
Click okay, then close Microsoft project.
Open up MS Project again, and choose your connection that you gave above.
Now open your MPP file.
Use the File Menu, Choose the Publish Button.
Once published you can go to Sharepoint, and you will see you project there. In this example you would go to http://www.testcompany.Sharepoint.com/sites/pwa/
You can then update from the desktop client, and publish online.
Next post, I will talk about visualizations of PWA with Power BI. A great scenario for PMOs looking to visualize and draw insights on their projects.
