How to make S-Curve or The Activity Usage Profile in Primavera P6
Use the Activity Usage Profile to view cost or unit values for activities in the open project over time according to a timescale you specify. The Activity Usage Profile displays resource allocations for all activities or for the activities you select in the Activity Table, Activity Usage Spreadsheet, Gantt Chart, or the Activity Network.
The Activity Usage Profile in Primavera P6 can display labor, nonlabor, material, and expense costs and labor and nonlabor units allocated to the activities in your project over time. Costs and units allocated to activities for each period in the timescale are represented as vertical bars. You can also display curves for charting cumulative costs or units over time.
You can customize the Activity Usage Profile to:
Specify the type of information you want to display.
Change the timescale.
Customize the bars and background.
Display past period actual or actual to date values.
Save any of these changes so that you can always access the same set of activity information, or share your Activity Usage Profile with someone else.
You can filter the Activity Usage Profile in Primavera P6 to include all activities displayed in the top layout, or to include only the activities you select in the top layout. You can also filter the top layout to display only those activities that correspond to the timeperiod you select in the bottom layout.
If you apply activity filters to the Activity Table, Gantt Chart, Activity Usage Spreadsheet, or the Activity Network, these filters also apply to the Activity Usage Profile.
