The progress of a project may be
o not yet started,
o as scheduled,
o overdue or
After creation of the project the progress is set to “not yet started” if its time frame lies in the future or to „as scheduled“ (optimistic model). The progress is by default automatically aggregated from the task and phase levels to the project level (see 12.1.6 Progress of a task and progress aggregation), but may also be set explicitly by the user. If there are no phases or tasks in a project, there is nothing to aggregate and project progress has to be set manually.
