Working more effectively in a P6 distributed environment

Many contractors have staff working on large civils and infrastructure projects using software outside of their controlled Oracle Primavera P6 master programme, such as MS Excel and MS Project. Often this is because they find P6 too complex or costly for those outside the core planning team to use, such as when developing short-term programmes that expand on the level of detail held in the master programme. Whatever the reason, getting data exported, updated and imported back into P6 leads to errors and inaccuracies; breaking the link between the master programme and the individual project. These products are also not tailored to the environment in which they are used, as well as often costing more than is first thought.

This webinar will show you how you can check out sections of a project from P6 and update the schedule with a user-friendly interface within a cost-effective solution. Our experienced presenter will show you how many organisations are increasingly working with Powerproject as a better user experience and how you can:

  • Check out data from Primavera P6 into Powerproject
  • Update progress easily – including via mobile devices on site
  • Print reports for easy communication
  • Reduce costs with shared licensing

In addition, Powerproject includes tools for Risk Analysis and Schedule Quality Checking, providing another reason to explore the benefits it can bring to your work.
