ACCELERATE (OR DECELERATE) PROJECT TIME FRAMES IN A MATTER OF MINUTES

The pressure to complete projects faster and cheaper will always be there. However, we can make the task of accelerating a schedule to meet owner or contractually-driven requirements less difficult and time consuming.

Deltek Acumen 360 helps make smart acceleration a reality.

  • A powerful engine to generate scenarios in minutes and keep projects moving forward
  • Tools to run “What-If” analysis over and over again
  • Defendable results with data-backed information
  • Complete customisation, including acceleration rates and compression order

CAPABILITIES

INTERACTIVE ACCELERATION
Add or reduce duration on a single activity, groups of activities, an entire WBS (work breakdown structure), or the entire project schedule interactively, in real time.

AUTOMATIC GOAL-BASED ACCELERATION
With one click, you can run an automatic simulation that determines the earliest finish date possible while still accounting for your acceleration criteria.

TARGETED ACCELERATION
Only you know where acceleration is feasible within a project. Acumen 360 uses your knowledge of the schedule to target areas for acceleration and reduce durations.

SOUND SCHEDULING IS THE CORNERSTONE OF PROJECT SUCCESS

Accurately forecasting cost, completion and revenue all hinges on a solid, reliable project schedule. Fuse produces clear and concise reports so analysis and performance can easily be reported to contractors along with to-do lists of any needed improvements.

Fuse reporting is designed to be hierarchical so that it accommodates planners, schedulers and executive’s needs. You can drill down, slicing and dicing through multiple levels (Work Breakdown) or by any other code or user field to quickly pinpoint potential issues with your schedule. Conversely, summarise detailed results and publish to project dashboards, executive briefings and PowerPoint presentations, all at the click of a button.
