On-Screen Takeoff

I think most of the reasoning was just provided on the previous pros and cons questions. On-Screen Takeoff (OST) is well suited for doing either quick takeoffs or getting into an elaborate, detailed takeoff. All though the viewing tools are quick and easy, I would still very much prefer using BlueBeam for looking through an overall set of drawings. With all of the hyperlink and bookmark functions of BlueBeam, OST doesn't compare and I rarely use OST unless I'm actually doing a takeoff.

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

On-Screen Takeoff

  • The biggest thing for me is that it is so easy to use, which allows it to be used widely throughout our organization without a lot of intense training.
  • Another great thing is that it does not matter how big or little the scope of the take off may be, it works just as well for a whole 12 story building take off as it does for a stretch of sidewalk.

  • 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

On-Screen Takeoff

  • It would be nice if you could select an object that occurs on multiple sheets, copy, and paste it into change orders or alternates.
  • If you could search for where a certain condition is being used (which sheet) and go directly to that page or pages, that would be cool.

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.

The On-Screen Takeoff support staff has helped several coworkers and myself on a wide array of issues. They are typically fast in their response time and willing to help no matter the issue. During one call in particular, I was able to get my issue resolved and even learned a feature of the product that I didn't previously know about. A++ rating!

On-Screen Takeoff

Being able to train individuals in a single afternoon on the program and trusting them to get you something usable as soon as possible is quite invaluable. It is also something that I feel is unique to this program. It is just easier.

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

On-Screen Takeoff

  • The software has more than paid for itself because the company has been able to save lots of money when awarding to subs since it is easy to verify quantities to qualify their bids.
  • Less of a chance of under-ordering products since the visible audit trail improves accuracy. Also you spend less since you aren't ordering more than you should be.

  • 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.
