Schedule updating and project control
Microsoft Project has a Gantt Chart wizard that will automatically format the Gantt chart to display the critical path.
This allows the reviewers/approvers to make decisions associated with changes to the project, and the change implementation approach.
As you can see, MS Project has a lot of different views of the relevant project data.
By using a few of these tables and views, you can analyze your schedule further and understand how to react accordingly.
Provide visibility of the change request throughout the change control process to ensure that everyone involved with the project can easily find out the current status of any changes in the process, as well as the reasons for approving or rejecting specific changes.
Ensuring that the change is implemented appropriately is critical because all of the effort that goes into analyzing and making decisions does not matter if the change is not actually implemented fully and correctly.
