Remaining Work and Progress Analysis


Hi everyone,

I need some help regarding the field "remaining work" (or forecast work) of network activities.

1) When creating a new network activity with planned work i.e. 20 hrs, the value of the field "remaining work" is 0.

2) So, the results of progress analysis (CNE1, CNE5) using the measurement method "degree of completion" based on remaining work are not correct (weighting of the new activity is 0 since the value for remaining work is 0).

3) The only possibility I found to solve this problem: Adding a confirmation with "working hours" 0 after each creation of a new activity. By doing so, the value of the field planned work is copied to remaining work (difference between actual work and planned work) and progress analysis works fine.

My question is now, if there is any possibility to copy the value of the field planned work to the field remaining work when creating a new network activity. SAP help says, that the field remaining work could be maintained manually (without adding a confirmation), but I haven't found the way to do so yet.

Sorry for my english, I hope you can understand what I'm trying to ask 😊 Basically, progress analysis just works fine after adding at least one confirmation to each network activity.

Thank you in advance!
