What are the advantages of using Primavera P6?

12 December 2011

According to Oracle, the benefits of the new Primavera P6 include:

  • Unite project teams and stakeholders through collaboration and strong feedback methods
  • Reduce the risk of cost and schedule overruns
  • Optimise management of all resources to maximise ROI
  • Monitor and visualise project performance vs. plan
  • Confidently make and keep project commitments

Further research into the Primavera P6 reveals many more practical and tangible features. For example the role based functionality can match each team member’s need and responsibilities. Project managers (PM) will need different access levels and more detailed insights into a project than a field-worker.

Web-based user interfaces allows for anytime, anywhere access meaning a better service and user satisfactions. Projects and programs can be aligned with company strategic objectives and multiple projects can be simultaneously managed and multiple users can be supported.

New functionality to the P6 version includes industry-standard risk management which allows organisations to create achievable resource optimised, risk-adjusted plans.

The resource management application allows project lifecycle planning. A PM can see what resources are being used and can forecast future use. If conflicts become apparent, plans can be adjusted and unexpected delays eliminated.

Email and mobile device integration improves collaboration and communication between PMs, schedulers and remote workers and field staff. This functionality ensures projects stay on track and delays are minimised.

Automatically populated time sheets mean managers can analyse and track the amount of time an individual spends on a project.

Primavera P6 allows the user to schedule and deliver timely reports for analysis. The tool enables reports to be sent in many formats (csv, pdf) and can be delivered through many channels (email, printer).

Improved security features mean individual access levels can be attributed to each user. It allows for simultaneous, multi-users working without the worry of access or version control. Field-level security is also achievable with Primavera P6.
