Academic use

I have been satisfied overall

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

Better Than Viewpoint but Still Prefer Timberline

It was great for purchase orders, subcontracts, certificates of insurance and compliance tracking.

Pros

The modules spoke to each other so you didn't have to enter the same information in different places like you do with Viewpoint.

Cons

Very little room to write descriptions in purchase orders and we were always having to try to manipulate them.

Dependable Planning and Scheduling

Very reliable and convenient to use specially the interfacing between Prism G2 and this software. In just one click of a button data are transferred instantly and assigned to the proper linked data in Prism. Schedule and progress between two software coincides with each other making it more better for Management to analyze schedule and cost result and can deliver good decisions to a project using this software.

Pros

User friendly scheduling and Planning tool, new cloud based data make it more easier to access remotely.

Cons

None, all functions works well for us for the project and from the company.

Powerful

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.

Good tool for project scheduling

Pros

This software can cater multiple tasks and projects with a great detail. Highly recommended for large scale projects

Cons

I had difficulty in the initial installation of the software for people like me with an average IT know how. It has steep learning curve and there are features that you dont need when you are using it for a small business.

Oracle Primavera

Excellent tool. As a project scheduler I could not do my job without it. Although you could use other products, Primavera is the best.

Pros

The Best Project Scheduling tool on the market today. I have used it for 20 years.

Cons

It needs to be able to print a report that shows the Predecessors and Successors in a better format.

Oracle... Meh

I only use this software because our clients came over to our company already using it.

Pros

I like the software because it is interchangeable.

Cons

Pretty much everything. It is Clunky, overated, and glitches out every time there is an update.

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.

Using it as a database management system at work.

Database for work related items.

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.

I have had 12 years of experience utilizing this software creating schedules for large scale project

Tool which could assist projects to complete on time.

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.

The most powerful Scheduling Software

Pros

There is almost no missing requirement/function in planning and scheduling already provided by P6. There is a variety of ability and functionality in P6, from the simple schedule to a very complicated delay analysis in construction or any other types of project. P6 can cover all the requirement of time management as one of the project management area of knowledge.

Cons

The feature of the software is not as beautiful as MS Project and learning the software needs a lot of effort and exercise.

Primavera is one of the finest scheduling tools I have worked with.

Pros

Multiple projects can be set up easily, Primavera gives a depth to the schedule as users can add multiple baselines (Far more than microsoft project). This fully backs schedulers to create a fine schedule.

Cons

Overall software feels like its been aged and the ease to use and learn can be difficult. Exporting process can be complicated if not familiar with the settings that control the report .
