Product tour—Primavera integrated cost and schedule management

Improve forecast accuracy, reduce the impact of scope changes, and improve project progress measurement.

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management

Primavera Unifier

Primavera integrated cost and schedule management

Automate and unify your cost, contract, and schedule management to increase forecast accuracy, improve the measurement of project progress against the schedule, raise visibility into the impacts of proposed changes on costs and schedules, and reduce risk and surprises.

Unifier Accelerator is a new base configuration of Primavera Unifier. Built to speed implementations, it provides a starting point of more than 55 preconfigured business processes and over 275 reports and dashboards, leveraging more than 20 years of process management expertise.

Primavera Unifier cash flow curve

Native integration between Primavera P6 and Primavera Unifier

The Primavera solution eliminates process and information silos.

Cash flow is managed at the individual project and project roll-up levels. The cash flow curve is fed by both the Primavera Unifier cost sheet and the Primavera schedule to provide a full and accurate picture of project progress.

By managing cash flow against the schedule, you can track and manage the movement of money over time and compared to plan to get early warnings about potential project overruns, enabling management to take proactive action.

Increase forecast accuracy

Gain clear visibility into cash flow against the forecast over time at the project and portfolio levels.

Measure the forecast cost against the baseline cost using the time-phased baseline, which is fed by Primavera P6.

Use past and current project data to inform and create more-accurate forecasts, increasing confidence and reducing needed contingency.

Put an end to error-prone double entry and the risk of misalignment between cost and schedule systems.

Integrate cost and schedule management

The integrated Primavera cost and schedule solution, part of Oracle Smart Construction Platform, ties cost codes in Primavera Unifier to the cost breakdown structure (CBS) and work breakdown structures in Primavera scheduling solutions, enabling automatic updates, eliminating double entry, and preventing error-prone manual steps.

The CBS is fed from Primavera Unifier to the Primavera P6 activity sheet, where the CBS is assigned to the relevant schedule activities and then fed back to the Primavera Unifier cash flow curve to provide a schedule-based cash flow.

Get a real-time view of progress against the plan

The schedule feeds the x-axis and the cost sheet feeds the y-axis of the cash flow roll-up, providing an always-current view of progress against the plan.

Easily track deliverables

Deliverables are tracked in Primavera Unifier by due dates provided by the Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management schedule. Dependencies and durations are tracked in the schedule. An integrated solution gives you the full picture and tells you if the sign-offs and deliverables associated with an activity have been completed.

Measure project progress

Improve your ability to measure project progress against the plan.

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management data feeds the Primavera Unifier activity sheet. Project managers and team members can easily access and keep track of the project schedule and progress without having to access Primavera P6 directly or wait for updates from schedulers.

Stay on track with integrated change management

Approved changes with cost and/or schedule impacts automatically update the associated contract commits, cost sheet, and schedule-based cash flow. The scheduler is notified within Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management, to keep information accurate and up to date, speed approvals and contract changes, support pay application verification between owner and contractor, and keep the project moving.

Once a pay application is paid, the commit amount is decreased by that amount. Error-prone double entry is eliminated, updates are expedited, and projects can stay on track.

Connect data to help prevent surprises

Optimise data management to help you make informed decisions and take needed action. Collect data in a strategic manner, house it in a single system, and use advanced analytics and reporting capabilities to collate, analyze, and present usable data to those who need it, when they need it.

Use project and portfolio-level reporting

Use cross-project reporting capabilities to track and act on the status of each project. Gain additional control over cash flow and use current and past project data to create more-accurate plans and forecasts.

Integrated information is sliced and diced for you, so you always know the status of your projects and the cash flow details and can easily compare similar projects to each other to learn and improve.
