DELTEK ACUMEN 360
Your 360 degree view of scheduling possibilities.
Even the best-laid plans can fall victim to project slips and delays and even the most aggressive schedules can contain potential areas for acceleration. Acumen 360 allows you to run ’what if’ analyses quickly that identify acceleration cases, hypothesize best and worst-case scenarios, and recover impact of delays.
Acumen 360 Duration Calibration allows you to add or reduce duration on a single activity, groups of activities, an entire WBS (work breakdown structure), or the entire project schedule interactively.
Select activities that “Require Less Time” than planned or those that require more and see the effects of these adjustments on the project completion date in real time.
Acumen 360 allows you to generate the fastest project scenario possible with the click of a button.
Rather than trying to meet a set project goal, this automatic simulation determines the earliest finish date possible while still accounting for your acceleration criteria.
Only you know where acceleration is feasible within a project. Acumen 360 takes into account your knowledge of the schedule to target specific areas for acceleration and set the limits for reducing durations. 360’s intuitive features make it easy to set an acceleration goal and guide the scenario generation with precision.
Acumen 360 intelligent pinpoint acceleration or deceleration is based on proven technology.
Acumen 360 does not use an imprecise ‘network crash’ approach. Once all user inputs are made, 360 uses its CPM engine to run thousands of simulations that attempt to meet the defined goal again and again. After the analysis is run the best option for achieving the project goal is presented. This method of incremental adjustments to achieve an accelerated schedule means that scenarios are realistic enough to be used as the project plan going forward.
