Project planning and scheduling are key elements of effective project management. A well-developed project schedule allows project managers to manage project milestones, deliverables, and timelines effectively.
Primavera Schedule is a cloud-based solution that is integrated with other Oracle Primavera Cloud modules to provide a complete project management solution.
Interactive Gantt charts allow planners, schedulers, and project managers to communicate a more accurate and complete graphical representation of a project’s schedule in real time. The system also enables users to track project scope and resource assignment and proactively perform resource and role leveling.
Oracle Primavera Schedule Cloud Service allows project managers to manage hierarchy-based resources and roles per project. Organizations also can choose to manage these roles and resources at an enterprise level and allow project managers to utilize them on need basis at project level.
Resources and roles can be assigned to activities as part of resource assignment capabilities, allowing project managers to resource load the project schedule.
Resource Analysis can be performed to determine over and underutilization of both resources and roles. Visual representation of resource and role assignment analysis in the form of histograms will allow project managers to determine where resources are under or over utilized.
Leveling can be performed on resource assignment to balance out resource or role assignment to minimize over or under utilization.
Risk Management provides the necessary tools that allow project professionals to manage risk easily and successfully. Features include:
- Risk register to view and prioritize project risk.
