Kommentare: There is a bit of transitionary learning coming over from Primavera P6, but that effort is greatly rewarded once you get into the swing of things.

Vorteile:

The ease with with you can create and manage complex projects. Outstanding depth of applicaiton for professional users.

Nachteile:

I would have said the complex licensing structure, but even that has been resolved with the newest v17.

Invaluable help

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall really positive experience.

Vorteile:

Very easy to use, the library and code structure is brialliant. The fact that you can reschedule just sections of the proramme or views helps a lot when you have to build a programme. The software is very powerful.

Nachteile:

Not sure if this is feasible but it would be good to have the opportunity to add resources into the bar chart based on the time unit. For example if the time unit is in days, if I move into the bar chart it would be good to be able to allocate the resources on the each days. It could be that I have 10 people on day 1, 8 people on day 2 and so on and the software automatically calculates the overall allocation on the task whilst keeping the break down on the bar chart.

Hi Monica thanks for the great review. The good news is that your enhancement request is already possible! Take a look in the helpfiles for tips on working with variable resource allocations and how the Resource Usage View can also allow you to work to this level of detail. We also cover this in our Working with Resources training course, though our Support Team can also give you a few pointers. Good luck with your projects!

A versatile and powerful planning tool- some thoughts from a long time user

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Powerprojects has been our primary planning and scheduling software for many years now and we have found that it integrates very well with other office software in use within the organization. We are excited about the BIM add-on feature now available as we believe this can extend the program functionalities especially at the front end of the projects.

Vorteile:

The best feature within Powerproject is the graphical interface of the program and the output especially compared to comparative softwares. Powerproject allows for multiple options to complete each function and is very strong in its integration with other widely used programs. We find Powerproject to be intuitive and easy to use for beginners and still be scalable to the requirement of established users. We have regularly used the Enterprise licenses on large projects and have found that these greatly aid in collaborative planning and control within large teams. Recent introduction of additional features like BIM integration and site progress tracking modules are now helping planning evolve further and make the software stand above its competitors. The software integrates easily with other business processes within the organisation as the outputs can be read by other softwares.

Nachteile:

Powerproject has a tendency to crash occasionally and hence stability is an issue especially when compared to other program softwares. The option of copying external links while copying and pasting a set of activities from one schedule to another is a funtionality that is missing from the software. Another general weakness of this product is the lack of awareness in the wider market outside UK. This means that we as users have to continually negotiate with other parties around the software to be used on the project. Better marketing of the product in the wider global markets and availability of better reader programs should help in this matter.

Vorteile:

Display properties for simplifying complex programmes to display to clients / site staff / subcontractors & ease of use

Nachteile:

When Was using the network license and the VPN / internet would go down.

Powerproject in the Construction Industry

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: We manage pre-construction and construction activities for major construction, fit out and engineering projects using Powerproject. A dashboard has been developed with Elecosoft to produce very detailed and clear progress reports that are incredibly useful. Critical path analysis and monitoring on projects is the main thread of what we need to do as project planners, and Powerproject does this well. I have personally been usng it for about 20 years and have found it to be a powerful and easy to use software.

Vorteile:

Using Powerproject is very intuetive to use and can easily produce gant charts for printing and PDF's that are clear and look good too. It is a very powerful tool that can accomodate a large amount of project data. It provides good facilities to monitor the progress your project and report the results.

Nachteile:

The thing I like least abouth the software is that as file sizes grow, Powerproject can have glitches such as bar titles changing, rows do not line up with text or the software freezes. Also I experience problems with applying a filter and sort at the same time. It feels like something the software should be capable of.

Power to the Planner

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Being involved with multi-million and billion dollar/ pound disputes, I have to articulate very technical issues and being able to define performance issues from change issues and the resequencing of the forecasted works, I am able to present simple graphics that help the lay person see what is being presented. Taking the complex and making it simple is the beauty of Asta PowerProject with its functionality ease of use it provides me the platform to then present at arbitrations, adjudications and mediations and has assisted me in helping to resolve the deadlock between the parties in dispute. I also use Asta to present seminars on delay and disruption and impact of change.

Vorteile:

The most powerful aspect for me as a delay analyst and Expert Witness is the ability to code the links and customise the presentation to show a clear picture of what is happening to a project as it moves from an as-planned to an as-built aspect. No other software comes close to its functionality and ease of use.

Nachteile:

There are minor issues with annotations when in preview and you zoom in or out can end up in a different position but this is minor. The one aspect of Elecosoft is they always have a listening ear to the customer and always react and adapt the software to meet users needs based upon the reason for a particular request. One was many years ago when I asked them to code links in order to provide the meaning behind the structure and sequence the planner has adopted in the network, be it a resource or safety link aspect.

power project for planning

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: every day I am planning complex construction programmes and the intuitive style of the software and easy to used interface helps to create clear easy to read programmes which the whole team can understand and then implement.

Vorteile:

Power project is any an easy software to use. I can train a person and within two hours they can produce simple programmes. As Their knowledge and experience of the software expands they will be able to develop more complex programmes and use the tools provided by the software to carry out complex analysis. This is all supported by a very good help line who are responsive and engaging.

Nachteile:

this is a difficult question to answer I have been using the software for 20 + years and nearly all the features that I wanted have been incorporated into new versions as one of the feature of the software is that it is being continually updated through the user groups. I think the BIM features need developing more if I am being really critical

A flexible tool for use by all levels of user, from beginner to experienced planner

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: More and more Clients are requiring full labour and lorry number histograms, as well as cost S-curves at very early project stages. The software is ideally suited to aid this, and with the ability to use coding in User fields/tables once the basic project is constructed, it is possible to automate this process to deal with any number of "what if" scenarios.

Vorteile:

This software allows the production of a presentable gantt chart pretty quickly by practically anyone. Of course this could also be considered a drawback, (a little knowledge being a dangerous thing), but ease of use is a definite headline positive.

Nachteile:

In the past exporting/importing data to or from other software has been flakey to say the least. However in the current version, things are much more accurate, although a good deal of checking is still necessary to ensure all is well after the import/export. To be fair, this could also be due to issues in the other software.

If it came in a tin....

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I’ve been using powerproject since version 5, so over 20 years. Again it’s never let me down and does more than it needs to on a daily basis.

Vorteile:

The way that elecosoft powerproject can be utilised to demonstrate the same project at differing levels of complexity it’s ease enables my business to cater for all my needs. I’ve programmed projects like batteries power station phase 3 down to the refurbishment of a shower block using powerproject never let me down

Nachteile:

People who have never used it and try and say Microsoft Is better. I know not everybody has it but more should be done to expose people to the benefits of powerproject over other inferior products

My review.

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: it very positive but has its quirks that would be good to get rid of.

Vorteile:

The ease of use. It is the closest software to drawing a programme by hand.

Nachteile:

Some functions seem to be disjointed, for example I have never understood - when I want to format the duration column into say week, I have to format the column and then go and amend the table definition? This is similar in baselines- there is a baseline manager and also it needs to be dabbled with in format baseline , ditto histograms there is report and format, cant there be one area for each of these. And it crashes more than other software - freezes etc, fortunately it usually recovers well

Construction Industry Standard Software

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Vorteile:

Looks great and easy to use - I have given tutorials to site staff and had novices up and running within hours. Huge array of features (many of which I hope to get round to using one day!), easy to reach and helpful support. Industry standard for construction - still don't understand why people use anything else in 2020. Flexible - can be as powerful or as simple as the user requires.

Nachteile:

Occasionally prone to crash - makes you remember to save regularly. Also the occasional bug, but probably no more than other software

A Software That Helps Communication to Non Planners

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Great simple functionality and presentation options promote planning to non-planners and gets people to actually understand programmes.

Vorteile:

The customisable visual options i.e activity per line, colour coding and different date scales.

Nachteile:

Many of my clients work in Primevera so I often need to export the programme into xer format. I then spend considerable time changing milestones and twerking the xer to match perfectly.

My Powerproject opinion...

Kommentare: Generally a great piece of project management software enabling one to accurately forecast, analyse and report project position.

Vorteile:

Once the skills to use the software have been developed it is an easy user friendly piece of software that is both powerful and enables the user to present information in a clear and concise manner.

Nachteile:

Calendars have always wound me up, albeit I think they are easier to develop and use on the newer versions of the software.

Kommentare: i find it the most user-friendly of all the planning Softwares. Customer services are second to none. it may not have all the different fancy options but works in a consistent way that is useable, and can be reproduced by all, not just Super Users.

Vorteile:

the software works and behaves as you would expect it to. there is a lot that can be self-learned, rather than searching You-tube for a solution

Nachteile:

Missing elements from the bottom "Bar task and Properties" that would be useful
