I am looking for the easiest way to update a baselined project plan.
Example: I have a project that the budget has been baselined but I have decided to change the order of events or redistribute some hours amongst sub tasks. This is not an issue before actual hours are spent but once the plan is underway and hours have already been spent, it becomes tricky...at least for me. This has happened enough that I am looking for a better way.
At the moment, I do one of two things:
1. strip out all the actual hours, make the changes, re-baseline the plan and then update the plan with the actual hours
2. Make the changes and manually update the baseline for the sub and main tasks. This becomes increasingly difficult as I need to manually update the baseline budget as well even though the overall budget remains the same.
Is there an easier way??
