Powerful Analysis Out of the Box 


--  Oracle's Primavera P6 Analytics 3.1 is part of Oracle's Primavera P6
    Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPPM) suite of products, a leading
    EPPM solution for project-intensive industries.
--  The latest release of Oracle's Primavera P6 Analytics includes:
    --  Advanced Risk Identification and Mitigation for Asset-Intensive
        Industries allow companies to:
        --  Ensure on-line and off-line maintenance projects stay on track
            by immediately identifying and course correcting any risks to
            the schedule.
        --  Track work planning metrics using out-of-the-box key
            performance indicators (KPIs) based on INPO AP-928 work
            process metrics. AP-928 metrics are used by United States
            nuclear power operators and provide more standardized and
            stringent project management practices.
    --  Daily History-Driven Trending Analytics allow companies to:
        --  Track daily historical data so that project managers, the PMO,
            and executives can view and respond to more robust and
            informative trending analysis.
        --  Compare project performance on a day-to-day basis - What
            activities were supposed to start? What activities actually
            started? Were new activities added to the schedule?
        --  Trend not only on performance data, but also changes to
            dimensional values, such as activity names, data dates, or
            code values.
    --  User Experience Enhancements:
        --  Leverage new UDF support for resource and resource assignments
            as well as date and text types to gain greater insight into
            projects, activities, and resources.
        --  Analyze project data at any level of a global project,
            activity, or resource code, regardless of the number of code
            levels configured in P6 EPPM. This will provide broader
            visibility and deeper understanding of projects and portfolios
            based on key customer-defined attributes.
        --  Optionally, update the out-of-the-box ETL (Extract, Transform
            and Load) calculations to meet specific business requirements.
