Hour 14. Optimizing the Project Plan > Looking at the Big Picture

Looking at the Big Picture

As you have worked through the previous Hours in this book, you probably realize that one of Project's greatest strengths is its capability to provide every detail of your project plan. The different views of Project, such as the Gantt Chart and the Calendar, allow you to focus on the project's details in different formats.

Sometimes, however, after you've defined your tasks, determined durations and constraints, created dependency relationships, and assigned your resources, you might want to broaden your view of the plan to see how all the parts fit together. Several tools are available that can help you take a look at the plan's big picture; these tools include compressing the timescale, collapsing the task list, filtering, and reviewing the cost schedule. You will work with each of these tools this hour.
