Navisworks

Navisworks is a key tool if doing any 3D model coordination with other trades. It will allow you to view your model content with others to know for certain that your design is accurate and can be assembled. Navisworks also comes with a lot of additional tools to make this process easy.

Oracle Primavera

Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management is a utilitarian product of a yesteryear gone by. It's straightforward and to the point. It is well suited for a customer base who is not interested in frills, portability, or a multitude of OOTB ability. It's for those who like to restrict and manage all control over users, code in queries, functions, and create customized reports for end users. It does what it does very well however, just do not expect it to be pretty. It's a 2007 product, so curb your excitement. It does handle all aspects of portfolio management well; financials, budgeting, spend plans, contracts, projects, staffing, workflows, etc... however, it is not intuitive to navigate, and will require some training.

Pros

Navisworks

  • Model Viewing, the navigation tools are really easy to use for walking through the model, especially if viewpoints are set up for key locations.
  • The take-offs work really well and can be very quick and easy if the model was built right.

Oracle Primavera

  • Primavera as a scheduling software can manage large project schedules regardless of complexity.
  • P6 is powerful enough to identify the longest pathway to the completion of a project. This is also known as CPM.
  • P6 can handle multiple scenarios and save them as a separate baseline schedule. This can be helpful for figuring theoretical sequences.

Cons

Navisworks

  • A link to BIM 360 Model Coordination is a serious shortcoming. It used to be easy to link to models loaded to BIM 360 Glue for more in depth clash detection.
  • I would have liked the ability to export a simulation created in Navisworks to 3DS Max for a more immersive animation with decent material mapping and better animation tools.
  • I would like to be able to view/create BIM 306 Docs/Field issues directly in Navisworks. In the current workflow we have to use other file formats to work within BIM 360. It would be more productive to be able to navigate the model through Navisworks and to create viewpoints and issues from within Navisworks.

Oracle Primavera

  • The software is high end with rich features, hence its rich price.
  • There is room for improvement in their customer service.
  • Oracle is doing its best in coming up with new features, and has a planned roadmap. It would be good if the enhancements are delivered faster.

Based on 9 answers
Autodesk owns Navisworks, and it seems to have a pretty good support network. A lot of the troubleshooting or support information is provided through an online database, so you most likely would not be getting any personal attention with your issues. Since there are so many users for Navisworks, there is a lot of information on the web.

Alternatives Considered

Navisworks

It can integrate many different types of file formats of all types of design including architectural, structural, interior, MEP. It has good ability to make walk through videos and make it inclusion with the timeline. Clash detection is the main feature which sets it apart from the other software. No other programs has as effective clash detection as Navisworks.

Oracle Primavera

The other scheduling software I used is Microsoft Project. Microsoft Project is a great tool, but it is not as robust as Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management. It can help build a much simpler
looking project, but if the project is most complex, it is best to use Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management.

Return on Investment

Navisworks

  • In operations, the clash detection feature has been very positive.
  • In preconstruction/estimating, it's been positive, but I can't say there is a direct indication of a positive ROI. It does, however, help with the precon/estimating process.

  • P6 is critical to the execution of all of our projects. Without it we would have less control of our projects.
  • One of our key business objectives is to deliver projects on time or ahead of schedule. P6 supports us in this goal and allows our superintendents to manage complicated construction projects.
