Deltek Acumen

Deltek Acumen is a schedule diagnostics and risk analysis tool that integrates directly with all major scheduling tools to help validate project and portfolio schedule quality.

Gain unparalleled insight through detailed project analysis with industry-proven standards and user-defined metrics to establish the high-quality schedule required for project success.

There is one universal truth that all projects carry risk. This commonality makes risk analysis a vital component of project delivery, particularly during times of uncertainty, but without a one-size-fits all approach how do you strategically proceed when faced with realized risk?

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, delegates will be able to gain practical experience of how to use Deltek Acumen Risk to manage a schedule and/or cost risk analysis. Additionally, see how delegates learn how to use Acumen Risk for more advanced uses including creating P schedules, modeling weather delays, and evaluating Joint Confidence Level.
