Project templates are an important inclusion in an enterprise project management system because of the time they save. Templates contribute to standardization in that they provide a fully structured standardized framework, cost model, and resource profile as a starting point. Using a template, a project manager can save weeks of work that he or she would otherwise have to spend creating a base plan for a new project.
If your organization already makes use of templates, you’ll want to assess these for improvement for use with Project Server. You must update project templates coming from prior versions to address enterprise custom fields and generic resources as a tool for resource requirements modeling. First identify the project templates, and then update them for import into your new Project Server implementation.
