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.

Oracle Primavera has been a great tool to integrate different schedules.

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.

Pros: - Great for large scale projects

- Detailed scheduling with time and cost breakdown

- Perfect filtering features

- High level resource management functionality

- Expense distribution over activity duration

Cons: - Graphics are not very appealing

- Jumping between tabs on the lower ribbons is very annoying compared to the tabs functionality available now on office software, and Autodesk products

Overall: I have been using Primavera for about 12 years now, and I've been training people how to use it, I've managed to train government engineers, construction contractors, engineering firms, and sponsors, it has been a great experience, the program is very precise when it comes to time, cost, resource, risk, and schedule calculations (CPM, PERT).

Pros: This software allows projects to create, implement, and monitor project schedules. This is a great analytical tool to provide project status, health of projects and other analytics which can help Project Teams to make better decisions timely.

Software is straightforward to use and very integrated with Project Management standards. Software also allows for multi-user integration to collaborate on schedule reviews and updates.

Cons: Primary usage of the tool is for schedule management. Software could benefit users by providing more in-depth analytics on quality of schedules based on industry best practice.

Overall: Tool which could assist projects to complete on time.

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.

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

Pros: P6 is utilized industry wide in construction, so becoming familiar with it provides all the tools you need to generate and analyze schedules.

It's very robust in the amount of things you can do with schedules. You can modify the relationships, type of activities, durations, calendar settings, views.

Provides the ability to export data to excel, which is useful when analyzing schedule delays and performance.

Cons: It's not too user-friendly software. Since it operates as a database and does not work like Microsoft or Apple software (because it isn't) but it sort of looks like it, it's easy to believe it operates in the same way as software you are used to using, but it's fundamentally different. One example is how projects are "saved", which is not as straightforward as saving and/or copying files. There's more to it.

P6 is rather rigid in that it's for the most part limited to Gantt charts. It has other views but they do't provide much value.

One improvement the software could do would be to add flowline diagram features for producing and visualizing schedules.

Overall: Anyone working in putting together a schedule, in particular intricate schedules such as those required in a construction project.

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: They are BIG and have been around for along time. This means there is a tremendous amount of support documentation they provide as well as user/administrator forums and notes.

Cons: Oracle products in general are a bit more expensive than other similar applications and their support is always extra.

Pros: This product allows me to work with people who work in different segmentation in our industry seamlessly on each and every project. It's so easy.. its a no brainer really. Approval processes are easy, everything is simple. If there is ever any kind of issue it has been resolved with in moments of reaching out to tech support. I also was able to teach myself this program which is always a bonus.

Cons: Exporting software to other platforms is hard. for our all employee meetings it is difficult to show some processes and such with ease. A mobile platform would also be beneficial to our company

Overall: It saves so much time from keying in entries and it is easy to teach older managers to use because of the ease of use. It just makes sense

Not an easy scheduling software for beginners, but excellent tool!

Pros: Most owners that my company works for require this type of scheduling, and for a basic schedule and a background in the program, it is easy to put one together. I went through a P6 training, and still have to refer back to my manual sometimes. Once you figure out how to manuever through, you can build great cost loaded, resource loaded schedules. Using these schedules for claims is beneficial as well when having to prove critical path activities.

Cons: I can always figure it out eventually, but some functions don't seem as user friendly. I went through a P6 training, and still have to refer back to my manual sometimes. I feel some type of training is required to build really good schedules rather than just being able to figure it out.

Pros: Primavera is the widely used modern world project management tool which is famous among Civil Engineers. The software allows to create planning, scheduling of all the different resource types such as materials, labour and whatever the scale of the project, it will create a comprehensive schedule to maximize the profits by minimizing overheads.

Cons: Primavera is a very sophisticated but complex software. If you are just starting your journey with the software mastering it will take some time. When I was new, it took me like 2 months to get familiar with the tools in my hand. But when you pass that frame of window, this is the only tool you ever need for project planning.

Overall: Primavera is been used in all the projects our company is involved in.

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.

Pros: Oracle Primavera is the best software currently available for project management work in Civil Engineering Industry. Primavera is a very powerful tool to prepare project programs aligning labor and resources for a successful completion. Primavera helps to make effective decision making at the correct time to increase the efficiency of the project. Presentation of results are very clear and at a high quality level. System is based on a cloud so everybody can have the access and work for the greater good.

Cons: Software is complex for a beginner and it takes time to get familiar with the system. It is little difficult to what went wrong when you don't get the results you expected. I had to re do few programs from the beginning since I couldn't find what went wrong. Once an activity is changed, it cannot be simply undone.

Overall: Oracle is used for project management where I am working. Software is helping to make lot of efficient decisions.

Pros: Well for starter it's very easy to set up and takes no time and it's not heavy on the processor of the computer.

I don't need to use any complementary software as it lets me include all aspects : resources, calender and business working days, managers and hierarchy .. etc.

Cons: Plain User interface like it has not been updated for ages yet I somehow like it because it adds simplicity to the work for you don't need to get tangled with complicated layout when managing a project

Overall: I use it to manage construction projects and it's very efficient in that. Actually we study primavera in engineering school as the very main software for construction management as it allows us to enlist all aspects of the project knowing that construction projects are very branched and require lots of details.

Pros: P6 is a powerful project management software that allows users to plan any size project. Because this software is cloud based, it allows users from all over to collaborate seamlessly. It makes project planning much simpler. From resource management, GANTT charts, activity tracking, it takes a lot of the work out of project tracking.

Cons: Sometimes P6 can be a little finicky to work with regarding Dates and activities. The only issue we have had is in regards to dates getting a little haywire from time to time. More often than not, it is user error with schedules, but it can be tricky to track down.

Cons: Still clunky but gets the job done. 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.

Pros: I am a project manager for a large commercial construction company and use Primavera for my schedules. I switched from Microsoft Project doing my schedules and have not looked back. Primavera is much more intuitive and simply laid out than M-project. I did not like on Microsoft project that when I wanted to change it to a PDF none of the views looked good for the end-user. Primavera has a much better looking end-user version and easier to make one when you are done with the schedule.

As far as making the schedule it is pretty easy to do with predecessors and the timeline. You can have it that you won't start framing until the slab is poured. That way when you go back and have to update the slab pour for earlier or later, then it will automatically update the rest of the schedule that is dependant on the slab. If you need to go back to Microsoft project you can easily convert the file into a project type file for use. I would definitely give Primavera a shot if you are a project manager and need scheduling software.

Cons: My only complaint is I wish there was more of a drag and drop type system versus of an excel type feel. This software is very similar to project and so if you know how to do project you will pick this up quickly. I just wish it wasn't so much feeling in cells though. Other than that it is easy to use and I recommend it.

Cons: Primavera P6 is not an easy software package to learn and it is not very cheap. You get out what you put into the software and the skills it takes to learn it.

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.

Using it as a database management system at work.

Pros: Tons of functionality. From an engineering point of view, the ability to customize the database system in identifying master items and its database points is ideal.

Cons: Interface is not too easy to identify and is slightly counter intuitive at times. Requires a user to perform additional steps that are sometimes unnecessary in carrying out functions.

Overall: Database for work related items.

Pros: This is the most detailed and power scheduling and management tool I have had the chance to use. Picked it up during my degree in Project Management and never stopped using it. Nothing i have seen tracks costs and schedule as well.

Cons: Take a bit of learning, as it has many many setting and is very detailed. If you don't need the level of detail is capable of you could get away with MS Project.

Pros: We use this program everyday, well some more than others but, all the extra add ins help with scheduling needs and requirements. The resource tab helps the most when identify bottlenecks in the project schedule. I am becoming a pro now

Cons: Some line items are not intuitive for editing and the print screen is hard to "fit to page" when needing to print for a meeting.

Pros: I am able to easily update and track my projects.

Cons: the learning curve was a bit steep but nothing that YouTube won't fix.

Overall: I had used a different software for most of my career. I needed to switch to P6 due to project requirements. I was able tp ick it up fairly quickly with some YouTube tutorials. I still have much to learn but I see the potential P6 has for these larger projects

Pros: I used Primavera for so many years, it is a very strong scheduling software that has powerful functionality and allows you to generate sophisticated schedules.

Cons: The only problem is it takes time to get familiar with all its functions. If you used it to teach students it will take time for them to understand it comparing to MS projects.

Overall: I highly recommend it.

Pros: - Easy to use

- Includes resources, cost, and risk

Cons: - Sometimes you would have to click on WBS and go back to Activities in order for it to allow you to add an activity (for add add activity not to be ghosted). Could be a glitch.

- sometimes when adding WBS list, it does not show it in order you have listed it on the Activities

Overall: I have been satisfied overall

Pros: What I like most about Oracle is that it is a very secure software that allows very sensitive information to remain protected.

Cons: It isn't as easy to reset your username and password as other sites, but that just secures the software more.

Overall: Overall I think Oracle is a very beneficial software that can store important personal or company information in a secure environment.

Comments: I GIVE IT A THUMPS UP TO ANYONE ACQUIRING PRIMAVERA AS AN ENTRY LEVEL SKILL FOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT.

Pros: I HAVE USED PRIMAVERA FOR ALMOST 6 YEARS NOW AND THESE ARE PROS I FOUND: EASE OF USE, SIMPLE UNDERSTANDING FOR FIRST TIMERS, USER FRIENDLY INTERFACE, UPDATES AVAILABLE, SUPPORTS ON DIFFERENT O/S, MANUALS AND HELP SECTION SELF EXPLANATORY FOR SOMEONE STARTING THEIR CAREER IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT. I GIVE HIGH FIVE FOR ITS RELIABILITY. I FEEL THIS IS THE ONE MOST WIDELY USED PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE RECOGNISED IN MULTIPLE INDUSTRIES.

Cons: I THINK THE ONLY CONS I CAN PINPOINT IS JUST LIKE HOW MANY OTHER TECHNOLOGY SOFTWARE HAVE A MOBILE BASED APP, PRIMAVERA IS STILL MUCH USED ON DESKTOP PC OR LAPTOP.

Pros: The most versatile product for project management. Tons and tons of option with Gantt charts, can virtually manage endless projects under one program. Super product.

Cons: Installation is one heck of a job. While installing the data base for the product and configuring the same you always ask yourself, why am I using this product. I can use some other product as well.

Use on basic schedules.

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: I can't stress enough that the amount of features in Primavera makes scheduling, baselining, statusing for large and small scale projects so detailed. You can add copious amounts of details that can be relevant to both the PDT and the client.

Cons: Primavera is honestly fairly hard to learn and takes even longer to master. The longer you learn and live in the system, the better you get. Training is definitely not enough to learn how to master the system.

Overall: For Project Management software, I truly believe that despite its learning curve, Primavera is the hands down winner. Comparatively to other project management software that is enterprise-wide (minus the free or cheap version for small teams), Primavera stands tall.

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

Pros: If you are considering this product for a construction company, it is useful to handle complex projects with many data contacts and files. Very large companies can use this to their advantage because it has many features that can be set and streamlined nicely.

Cons: The product is really expensive. I would say that if you are a smaller company, this isn't going to work for your price point. It also has a lot of complexity, so if you are going to just pay to get it and not use it to its full potential, it's not a good investment. To have an expert that specializes in training and using this product to it's full potential (give them a minimum of 6 months to dig in full time) will give you the best return on investment for implementing this product.

Overall: Beautifully created to solve problems without making it overly complicated. I would say, there are far too many companies out there trying to be good at everything and making horrible products, but Oracle does a good job of investing in a product feature and actually making it perform well.
