Fixed Work lost during upgrade to PPM 15.4

  • 1.  Fixed Work lost during upgrade to PPM 15.4

    We are preparing to upgrade from 14.3 to 15.4. This upgrade will also include an upgrade from MS Project 2013 with the Legacy interface to MS Project 2016 with the XML interface. Our project scheduling is done primarily using Fixed Work. We have been told that this will not carry across during this upgrade because PPM only recognized Fixed Units and Fixed Duration - all Fixed Work types will change to Fixed Units. Obviously this is going to greatly skew our schedules, etc.


    I was wondering if there are other companies that use Fixed Work that have come across this issue, and if there is a viable work-around.

    Just an update on this older post, that an enhancement was added in 15.5 for Fixed Work tasks. Here is the link to a KB that highlights the differences for the Fixed Work tasks with the MSP New Driver for versions prior to Clarity PPM 15.5 versus 15.5 and higher:  MSP New Driver: Tasks change from Fixed Work to Fi - CA Knowledge
