Acumen Fuse

Quickly and easily evaluate schedule quality, cost forecast accuracy, and risk realism with Deltek Acumen Fuse.

Use Fuse. See your schedules in a whole new light.

All the innovative analyses in the world can mean nothing if you can’t communicate to key people what they need to know about your project. Whether you’re reporting to executive stakeholders or internal team members, Acumen Fuse gives you unrivaled flexibility in how you present your project to others.

Fuse offers four types of reports, all of which can be published to PDF or Microsoft Office.

  • Executive briefing: A high-level, thorough yet easy-to-read synopsis of overall project status, concise characteristic descriptions, schedule quality analysis and resolution recommendations.
  • Analyst Report: An in-depth “to-do” list of analysis results, with a detailed view of project quality and schedule strength either over time or by ribbons [activity groupings].
  • Dashboard: An interactive summary of project status, schedule quality and analysis results, all integrated into a single view. Fuse’s one-of-a-kind dashboard module is fully configurable to display multiple metrics options at once as charts, graphs or gauges. You can easily create custom reports by simply copying and pasting the dashboard view into your Microsoft Office applications.
  • API Custom Reports: A flexible means of extracting analysis results directly into third-party custom reports or external applications. Fuse’s Application Programming Interface [API] engine lets you generate custom reports or publish directly to web-based services and applications, to portals such as Microsoft Sharepoint, or to third-party tools such as Crystal Reports.

Acumen Fuse integrates with all scheduling, cost-management, earned value and risk-assessment tools available today.
Its integrated analysis module can import and analyze tens of thousands of activities across multiple projects and platforms in seconds, providing you with a true view of the project as a whole.

Fuse seamlessly imports numerous types of project data for immediate analysis:

  • Microsoft Project & Project Server
  • Primavera P6 & Primavera P3
  • Deltek Open Plan
  • Powerproject (Asta Powerproject)
  • Deltek Cobra
  • PrismG2
  • Primavera Risk
  • Analysis/Pertmaster
  • Microsoft Excel/XML data

For other data formats, Fuse offers a generic import module.

The Fuse platform is further enhanced with Acumen Cloud™ which lets you securely and anonymously compare your Fuse analysis with thousands of comparable projects around the world.

The Cloud performs its own analysis of your Fuse Index™, scoring and ranking your schedule among other similar projects worldwide. It is a limitless, self-learning knowledge base of global project data, designed to make smart comparisons, and enable you to make the most realistic and sound schedules possible.

Through Acumen’s research, Acumen has identified a correlation in project management between scheduling quality and completion success:

The better the plan, the more likely the project will come in on-time and on-budget.
