All in all, P6 is a great product to use for programs and projects.

Pros

P6 does a great job in managing schedule for large programs and projects. P6 gets very powerful as you cost load your schedules and use data to construct reports and dashboards.

Cons

P6 can get pretty complicated with their functionalities. P6 can use a better printable report for schedules.

Program is getting easier to use with each new version.

Pros

I feel like this newer version of P6 Primavera might take the industry by hold. None of the scheduling software that is worth anything is intuitive. I am glad about very small updates in this, like the scrolling with a mouse, and speeding things up a bit for long and tedious projects.

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

- very powerful and have different features,
- it's oldest and well know in the industry
- owned by one of giant company Oracle, so the product will continue, once you know how to your knowledge will not be obsolete.

Cons

- unlike other project management software it's not user friendly, so you have to learn the software probably it would take some time
- expansive

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.

Ditch Primavera. There are much better web-based solutions available.

Pros

There isn't many great things to say about Primavera. Other than storing and categorizing contact information, project documents, site instructions, etc. (which other programs do more fluidly), assigning submittals to individuals is a nice feature.

Cons

The software is a nightmare to try and setup for end-users as its functionality is entirely dependent on the Java versions installed on the server and each end-user.

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.

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.

Likes Least

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

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...

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.

As a civil engineering student, I used Primavera to manage construction projects and it was very handy and helpful, it saved me a lot of time and effort. the program has a lot of amazing and detailed features that allows you to add mostly all of your project plan's contents. It's also very easy to use and it took me less than a week to learn it and start managing my first project with it.

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

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

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.

For schedule management of a large greenfield program with multiple CM's and Engineering firms there is no better tool I know.

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

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.

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.

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!
