Create a Baseline in a Schedule

OBJECTIVE

To create a Baseline in a Project Schedule in ConstructionOnline.

BACKGROUND

Baselines in ConstructionOnline act as a snapshot of a schedule at a moment in time. When a Baseline is created, the schedule’s current start and end dates are recorded into that Baseline. After the Baseline has been created, the Baseline will apply to that schedule and will keep track of any delays that cause slippage, and it will also keep a record of how many workdays behind the schedule has become since the creation of that Baseline.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • Schedules with Tasks must exist to create a Baseline
  • A Schedule can have more than one Baseline, but only one can be active at any time
