“I got trained for Primavera P6 PPM through Compass Consult. Honestly, the things that got me in were their competitive pricing and payment plans in offer. The thing that I highly admire about the training is that it is a very practical, hands-on training wherein you can learn while working on your own project. The trainers are highly experienced and fundamentally strong. I would strongly recommend the training to someone who needs hands-on experience in P6.”
The benefits and applications of the Primavera project management platform
Explore the numerous project management applications of Oracle Primavera and how organisations in the construction industry can streamline their projects with it.
Why do construction companies need project management software?
As with any industry, the construction industry has its own fair share of challenges. Issues such as unforeseen project delays, unsatisfactory client communication, cost overruns, risk management, regulatory compliance and other common issues can diminish the productivity of construction projects. This is where the Oracle Primavera project management platform plays a pivotal role in streamlining and optimising the entire project management pipeline.
Let’s explore the applications of Oracle Primavera in the construction industry and how it helps navigate the various facets and challenges of construction project management.
5 applications of the Primavera project management software in the construction industry
Project planning and scheduling
Project teams need to verify project feasibility before execution. To achieve this, they need to ensure that tasks, resources and the allocated budget are enough to execute the project seamlessly. Using Oracle Primavera helps users define project activities, assign resources and create a comprehensive project timeline in an organised and efficient manner.
Project managers should prioritise the allocation of resources to ensure that the project is running smoothly throughout its lifecycle with as minimal bumps as possible. Primavera enables them to do this function efficiently. It allows project managers to allocate resources effectively, track resource usage and avoid cost overruns and project delays.
Avoiding cost overruns is one of the biggest challenges faced by project managers. Oracle Primavera allows project managers to create accurate project budgets, monitor expenses and forecast future costs for the budget. This helps project managers make corrections to their planned budget by identifying potential issues that could be causing cost overruns.
Risk analysis and mitigation
It is important to identify potential risks in a project to tackle them head-on to ensure the project runs smoothly. Using Oracle’s project management software helps decision-makers analyse potential risks and come up with contingency plans by providing valuable insights on developing new strategies to mitigate potential project management risks.
Project portfolio management
Many construction companies handle multiple projects concurrently. However, it may be challenging for project managers to keep track of various projects across the portfolio simultaneously. By investing in Oracle Primavera, project managers can prioritise certain projects, allocate resources and monitor the overall execution of a project more effectively.
