CPM - Link Master Project to WBS

Hi Guys,

Can we link two WBS under one Project definition with two separate master projects in CPM? Here is example;

PD - 1000

WBS - 1000-01 linked to MP100

WBS - 1000-02 linked to MP200

If it is possible, then please give me a hint for configuration setup.

    You can't link individual PS objects within the same Project Definition to different CPM Master Projects because of the hierarchical relationship. In CPM config you designate header objects and then specify a header object for sub objects.

    You could try making a WBS a header object and not linking it to a Project Definition, but I would guess that CPM would produce unpredictable behavior.

      Hi Ken,

      If using WBS as header object then you cannot use project definition. Therefore, we have decided to restructure our projects in PS in order to follow standard way of linking MP with PD.

    In CPM 1.0 & 2.0 , multiple PS projects can be linked to single master project.

    Now in your example the scenario is a bit different. As I understand you want to create two master projects (MP100 & MP200) and assign WBS elements of the same PS project (PD-1000).

    This is possible by Reference to Objects assignment feature.

    For configuration refer to "Make Settings for Master Projects"

    Read the above link & explore SPRO with some test scenarios.
