Oracle Primavera Risk Analysis (OPRA) has been a staple of the project controls community for over 30 years — and for good reason. Nevertheless, we’re regularly contacted by project managers looking to switch from OPRA to Safran Risk.
Without a doubt the largest event of its kind anywhere in the world, Project Controls Expo 2019 is only a few short weeks away. And once again, Safran is proud to sponsor both the London and Melbourne events.
It’s no exaggeration to say that manufacturing schedules are the foundation upon which successful projects are built. Correctly allocating resources, managing costs, and understanding the variables that may cause delays is vital if production is to be completed on time and within budget.
Cost and schedule risk analysis is fundamental to project success. Whether you’re undertaking a large-scale capital project that takes months to complete or something less resource intensive, understanding the risks that threaten to derail it is crucial.
Whether the aim of your project is to replace your existing processes, integrate innovative technology into your operations, or seamlessly deploy something brand new – you need to hit the ground running. This is because even small disruptions can have major consequences on the lifecycle of a project, resulting in greater risk – especially within complex projects that overlap, have multiple schedules, or are high-stake for your business.
Controls such as forecasting, scheduling, and risk analysis are integral aspects of successful project planning.
In almost every industry, projects are becoming more complex by the day.
As new technologies emerge and geopolitical shifts impact the trajectory of project planning, organizations are increasingly challenged by new risk types and problems that require greater visibility and consolidation of risk management strategies.
Safran is proud to announce that it's expanding its reach to the Danish market.
The world of capital project management is filled with complexity. From an overabundance of abbreviations to a fistful of formulaic equations, it’s easy to find yourself lost in translation. But by taking a complex topic and analyzing its constituent parts, understanding can be improved. Here we examine Earned Value Management (EVM).
