Oracle Primavera

2019-02-14

I would say that it is less challenging to use primavera than Microsoft project.

Pros

It is best project management software, planning, scheduling, resource managing, controlling can be done for any project . Eventhough it is a complex analysis and process, It is not much difficult to use. Some advance features like top-down scheduling, longest path critical activity definition , activity steps and etc are now available . VBA is not required to separate and material cost.

Cons

In my experience, It would be slightly difficult to adopt for beginner.

Primavera P6

2018-04-27

Program is getting easier to use with each new version.

Pros

I feel like this newer version of P6 Primavera might take the industry by hold. None of the scheduling software that is worth anything is intuitive. I am glad about very small updates in this, like the scrolling with a mouse, and speeding things up a bit for long and tedious projects.

Cons

All of the scheduling software I have used is clunky however. Microsoft Project is intuitive but not what we use for large projects at all.

Great project management tool with a lot of features

2018-11-05

Our company has been using Primavera P6 to manage a large acquisition and it has been an extremely helpful tool. There are multiple workflows, departments, and tasks that must be managed across the organization and without Primavera it would have been much more difficult to successfully manage everything.

Pros

It's much more robust than something like Microsoft Project and it makes it easier to more effectively manage projects and tasks.

Cons

The only downside to Primavera is the learning curve for using the software. Because it has so many features it is naturally more difficult to learn how to use.

Primavera is one of the finest scheduling tools I have worked with.

2018-06-15

Pros

Multiple projects can be set up easily, Primavera gives a depth to the schedule as users can add multiple baselines (Far more than microsoft project).

Cons

Overall software feels like its been aged and the ease to use and learn can be difficult. Exporting process can be complicated if not familiar with the settings that control the report .

Satisfactory

2017-10-17

I was able to use the P6 software on multi million dollar projects and it played a great role in improving the efficiency of the work and keeping track of critical deliverables

Pros

I liked the P6 in particular as a Scheduling Software as it allows me to perform additional tasks which are unable on Microsoft Project. I like the part where you can bunch a group of activities to be performed by a particular resource using a unique identification code and it can be useful on big projects where a resource just needs to know his part in the overall schedule

Cons

I was not happy with the software for particularly smaller projects and since there are licensing fees associated with the product it does not make sense to use it for smaller projects. Microsoft Project is a pretty decent scheduling software on its own to carry out projects and it also saves us the trouble of training people on the new software
