In Primavera, when we use the default filter critical path, it shows only 1 critical path. In a complicated project, we might need to show also a “near critical” path.
Let’s explore how to do this by the following example project:
Press F9 – Click on Option
Click on the “Advanced” tab, and check the “Calculate multiple float paths” checkbox.
In “Display multiple float paths ending with activity”, select the last activity.
Choose the number of paths you want to display. For example 2 paths.
Click Close and Schedule.
Right-click on the activity table, click on Group & Sort
Choose Group By “Float path” and click OK
Now Primavera will show you 2 critical paths:
- Path 1: A – D – F – H
- Path 2: A – B – C – H
