Source Package

Your model contains a great deal of information on both project design and project management, and a major benefit of the Chart feature is providing the facility to capture, summarize and present that information from:

A specific Package in the model
A number of specific Packages in the Model, or
Across the whole model

You can also select to include information from just a Package itself, or from the Package and all its child Packages.

If you want to further refine the data to omit certain quantities or highlight others, you can apply element filters to the data from the selected Packages.

Access     Double-click on Chart element | Chart Details | Source > Package
