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

Overall: 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

Amazingly capably program

Comments: Great program once you learn it

Pros: This one can do it all. As in every possible thing you can think of with almost no limitations. Big or small P6 can handle it

Cons: So much functionality you HAVE to have training specific to this program or it will not work. Training is intensive, and takes multiple days.

Comments: I have used MS Project in my College days and we use to work on extracts of the Big Commercial and Private Project and it explained us the little and major differences between the MS Project and Primavera. Primavera is overall the best detailed software for Project Management Professionals out there.

Pros: The main thing WBS is seperated from the activties. You can add sub-activities and even the minor expenses like travelling and training costs. You can put in the percentage of completion in the sub-activities. Since it is EPPM software you can work on multiple projects. It's user defined controls and access makes it more easier to set roles and responsibilities to each and every OBS and activities and only allows multiple users to work at the set EPS & WBS level as per pemissions allowed. I was once working on a Villa project and we had the option to set more than one relationship between two activities. You can also create resources as per composition based on the Schedule of Rates(SOR) from whichever region you are working from. It makes it more easier to assign for a particular project. One another big benefit is that you can create 'n' number of Baselines as compared to other project management softwares. You can add risk and issues as well. Overall I feel Primavera P6 EPPM is a detailed project management software and you can work it at any verticals and horizontals.

Cons: What i don't like about this software is that it doesnt allow multiple entries on it's own based on the formulae set. Again you need to check out your project and schedule with correct date and time, well that is plus point definitely but in case you missed the proper date and time as per your working calender then it will affect the project at a minor level initially and major differences will be made if that remains ignored. Another drawback for it is that if you are working on a single project then it will require lot of detailing for WBS, OBS, EPS, Roles and responsibilities which can be unnecessary in some cases. You have to remember each and every detail wherever you are putting it.

Comments: It is a must for any kind of scale construction project to track project's overview.

Pros: It is good to work with Oracle database, you don't lose any data. Schedule options, claim digger, report properties are stable.

Cons: It is restricted program. Not easy to use with Excel. You have to import/export between Excel. Multi-currency is not supported.

Pros: This is a great and powerful tool for scheduling, absolutely love this program and its ability to get things done. We still use P6 as we feel this is the best version, the web-versions aren't as good.

Cons: Ever since Oracle took it over they completely screwed up things on licensing, etc. Not a fan of that this is why we stay on the non-updated versions.

Pros: I have used P3 and P6 now for years and find the software very powerful and thorough. I find that once you learn how to use the software it enables the company to be more efficient and productive.

Cons: The con to this software is the upfront cost, lack of training, and how complex the software is. They really need to improve their training! I will spend countless hours trying to get a newby up to speed on this software.

Overall: this software does what it is designed to do, just not in the easiest format to learn!

Comments: I have been using for 30 years and the capabilities are in excess of the need.

Pros: This software is an industry standard in construction and is very applicable. There are now more interfaces with other programs.

Cons: The software does have a learning curve and much of it is beyond daily use. It would be easier if they had a preliminary module that could then be added to.

Pros: Oracle Primavera provides the flexibility to integrate different schedules while maintaining each on as a stand-alone schedule when needed. The ability to create different layouts, filters and baselines is a great feature to satisfy different requirements from our stakeholders. We use Springboard platform to access the software through a web connection adding additional flexibility and real time access. We had use the software with a peak of seven planners including two CM companies in a Green Field project with great success.
In addition, we are currently planning a shutdown and the ability to schedule using different calendars and resources has been very useful in identifying gaps and peaks in our plan.
The option to have multiple baselines is also useful to compare current schedule through different phases of the project.

Cons: Resources/progress graph and histograms are not as good as I am used to get from other application like Excel. Data export is not always as expected and some data manipulation is required in the other application (like Excel) to get the appropriate formats.

Comments: For schedule management of a large greenfield program with multiple CM's and Engineering firms there is no better tool I know. Provisioned through Loadspring, the enterprise version allowed for streamlining of bi-weekly progressing, quality checking and ad-hoc reporting. Licensing fees are a bit pricey however. Also, a good knowledge of scheduling discipline is required to directly use this tool.

Pros: Features of the product

Cons: Difficult to grasp the first couple of tries.

Overall: My company was using excel sheets prior to buying Primavera. It took a long time for us to get used to it as it is very detailed. However, once we started using it, Project Planning became a must easier and visual process and calculating the lag time, the Critical Path, the milestones identification, all became much more easier and less error prone. Very happy with this product and the support that we have recieved.

Pros: It managed documents very well. Once used to the system and formats it was easy to use. Early on customer support was amazing.

Cons: Current customer support by Oracle is terrible. EI and Java could never be updated otherwise the software would not function.

Overall: We used Primavera primarily for Project Management. Submittals, Pay Apps, Transmittals. For the most part it was great. Especially once you got used to the system (It was not user friendly to all). The software was dependent on a particular version of IE and you could NEVER update your JAVA ever! Otherwise, it just wouldn't work. In the early years (before Oracle) the customer service was fantastic. However, since Oracle took over, the customer service has been terrible. We have since switched to a different software.

Comments: We have been using Primavera for just over two years now. Although it has many uses, we use it primarily for scheduling. All projects get entered into Primavera with necessary labor requirements and we look at the long-term schedule to determine our manpower and estimating needs.

This product is very in depth and can be cumbersome. It's best to get help from an expert while setting up your first project(s). A very powerful tool and a great asset for most contractors.

Comments: As a Project Controls Professional, I have been using Primavera since 1996. It has evolved from its P3 days to the current P6 version. Primavera is considered the best-in-class by most of the major industries in the world.
One of the unique qualities of Oracle Primavera is - It combines good old proven scheduling techniques like CPM with a great database. This allows for large amounts of scheduling data storage and easy retrieval of historical data for use as a standard for future work. It also makes it easier to reconstruct past schedules for forensic delay analysis etc.
In the current market scenario, where competitiveness is a very important attribute for survival, expertise in Oracle Primavera is an absolute must!

Pros: powerful, multiple ES-FS, LS-ES, and many more ways of scheduling

Overall: I use the P6 version of Primavera on a daily basis allowing me to maintain record of all milestones, resources and material needed on my projects. The many ways of reporting data, showing completed work, work in progress and progress completed it is very useful to keep track of the actual things happening at your project. Baselines are used to keep track of how a project has changed since day one, and re-baselining is so easy to do. The manpower can be entered and reported knowing how many employees are assigned to a specific line item.

Pros: You can set various views so that contractors and subcontractors can upload documents, but cannot see other sensitive information that is uploaded by the client or management.

Cons: Slow, confusing, no one in our company likes to use it so only 2 people end up loading and tracking all of the documents instead of it being an easier search for everyone. Our version does not update unless you pay for a new update, and the version is so outdated that it does not work with most people's browsers and Java anymore.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would ensure that before purchasing any software like this, everyone in the company or project is on board, and you clearly identify your needs and uses. We tried to use this and go paperless, but uploading documents is only slower and more time consuming instead of saving paper change orders, submittals, etc...

Comments: Primavera is the grand-daddy of project management software programs, with full features that are robust enough to handle the biggest jobs. But, since the purchase by Oracle, support has suffered tremendously. It's not unusual to wait days for a response, and more for resolution. That's not acceptable when the job keeps going, regardless.
