Create the Soundest Schedules Possible with Deltek Acumen Fuse - and execute them with consistent success.
A sound schedule is the key to a successful project.
Acumen Fuse provides the analysis and benchmarking necessary to comply with government and industry standards while giving you unrivaled flexibility in how you present your project to others.
Project management is all about planning the work, then working the plan.
It sounds so simple. Yet with the complexities inherent in today’s projects, teams still struggle to deliver projects successfully under the triple constraint of cost, time and scope.
Time and again, these projects come in overtime and over-budget – and everyone thinks it has to do with execution. But that’s only half of the equation.
The fact is, if your schedule isn’t sound, then you’re working a faulty plan, guiding you toward an unsuccessful outcome.
The main flaw in most schedules is that they’re unrealistic.
As an industry, we’re too ambitious with our planning, and inaccurate schedules can’t produce achievable success.
Fuse facilitates the whole equation
Acumen Fuse is a comprehensive project analysis, visualization and problem resolution platform – a software application that complements your existing scheduling tools to:
• Help you build sound, realistically do-able schedules without manual critique;
• Provide you with metric analysis, a clear visual and comparison context of your schedule quality, cost-forecast accuracy, risk-model realism, earned value and project performance,
• Give you a repeatable way to score and critique schedule quality, pinpoint weaknesses, evaluate performance during execution and gauge the impact of changes.
Fuse aligns expectations and improves communication.
Fuse offers all project stakeholders – from contractors to owners – an immediate and vivid view of where a plan isn’t working, as well as options for course-correction moving forward.
This establishes an alignment of expectations and communication between owners – the people who invest financial capital to get projects going – and contractors, the people who invest their expertise to get projects done.
With Acumen Fuse®, planning the work becomes faster, easier and much more realistic, so that working the plan is smoother, cheaper and, at the end of the day, much more successful.
