With more than 25 years of industry experience, Primavera is a leader in construction project management software. Primavera Project Manager simplifies and facilitates construction project management in a number of ways. While it was initially used for large-scale projects, Primavera has become increasingly popular for use with smaller-sized construction projects. It is essential for ease of management in scheduling, budgeting, resource allocation, time lines, and the creation of graphics and reports.
It is ideal for simplifying the process of planning and scheduling complex projects. Primavera Project Manager helps in the identification of distinct phases of a project, which facilitates communication and goal-setting. This allows for the coordination of labor, equipment, and materials to ensure both proper allocation of resources and project completion that is both timely and on-budget. Primavera also offers customizable graphics and activity network diagrams to identify driving relationships in the project.
Primavera excels at simplifying the creation of complex schedules. It facilitates the identification of events which are interdependent and the scheduling of the people and resources required by these tasks. Because the software responds to real-world scenarios, Primavera Project Manager can accommodate uncertainties in time-line duration. It optimizes the scheduling through identification of the critical path and can provide historical information on the relationship between planned and actual project performance. Because Primavera allows for quick short-term planning, it facilitates communication about responsibilities for the upcoming day, week, month, or whatever time period is needed.
In addition to this ease of communication, Primavera Project Manager facilitates collaboration between workers or subcontractors by making it possible to easily email entire projects. Industry standard reports are customizable to communicate project status to all project team members. Primavera eases the budgeting process as well; baseline budgets are easily compared to actual costs. With the correct use of Primavera Project Manager, on-time and on-budget project completion is virtually guaranteed, as it so readily facilitates the coordination of labor, materials, equipment, and sub-contractors. Because it allows for what-if scenario planning, Primavera allows users to design their project with their strategic objectives in mind. This integrated construction project management software is essential for exemplary management.
