Part V: Finalizing and Publishing Your Plan > Optimizing the Project Plan

Hour 14. Optimizing the Project Plan

After you have defined and entered your tasks and resources into a project plan, you might start to feel overwhelmed by all the details displayed in Project's different views. Project is certainly a tool for dealing with minutiae. Project also, however, gives you the ability to step back from the project and view the information so that you can see the big picture and evaluate the plan's effectiveness.

In this Hour, you learn to display a summary of the important statistics of a project, such as the start and finish dates. You also learn to use filters that allow you to view a selected subset of the project's tasks or resources. You learn how to identify the critical path for your project and work with strategies that help you reduce the project's duration. Finally, you learn how to review the cost schedule and find ways to reduce the project costs.
