For Project Diagnostics & Analytics Engineering a plan with elaborate logistics, while trying to satisfy the owner’s requirements for ontime, to-budget, and to-spec project completion, is a huge challenge.
To meet that challenge, construction projects require an achievable and sound project plan, open lines of communication between owners, subcontractors, and stakeholders, and insight into both ongoing and completed project performance.
The Deltek Acumen software suite is comprehensive enough to meet each of these needs while maintaining the flexibility to adapt to each user’s business needs.
Acumen software is used by hundreds of construction companies including many on ENR’s Top 400 Contractors list.
Acumen Software Improves Schedule Quality
Manual schedule analysis takes man hours away from core project work.
Acumen Fuse® provides an automated, repea table analysis based on standard industry quality checks, the built in scoring of Fuse Schedule Index™, thousands of built-in metrics, or an unlimited number of custom metrics.
The diagnostics in Acumen Fuse report everything from activities with missing logic to those missing resource assignments.
You choose from the over 300 out-of-the box metrics to create custom views and reports on the information necessary for your project.
The metric editor allows users to create their own checks and include those in each analysis view or report generated.
Rolling the metrics up into a single score gives immediate insight into the health of the schedule.
Activities can then be grouped by WBS, contractor, location, or any field within the schedule to compare quality scores and zero-in on where improvements need to be made.
With a built-in schedule cleanser, corrections can be made directly within Fuse saving hours of time spent sifting through the schedule to repair missing logic or remove hard constraints.
