The Acumen tool suite takes project analysis and schedule optimization to the next level. Acumen Fuse ensures a solid, reliable project schedule in minutes, while Acumen Risk eliminates the statistical and logical challenges of typical risk models. Automatically generate schedule scenarios and make smart acceleration a reality with Acumen 360. And Acumen Touchstone fully automates the schedule submission process while adhering to your company’s quality criteria, best practices and standards.
The pressure to complete projects faster and cheaper will always be there. However, we can make the task of accelerating a schedule to meet owner or contractually-driven requirements less difficult and time consuming.
Deltek Acumen 360 helps make smart acceleration a reality.
A powerful engine to generate scenarios in minutes and keep projects moving forward
Tools to run “What-If” analysis over and over again
Defendable results with data-backed information
Complete customization, including acceleration rates and compression order
Acumen 360 Duration Calibration allows you to interactively accelerate or decelerate activities, groups of activities, or the entire project schedule. Select activities that “Require Less Time” than planned or those that require more and immediately see the impact on the project as a whole.
Acumen 360 lets you create multiple versions of your schedule so you can weigh different options and choose a new scenario or go back to your original plan.
Use your knowledge of the schedule to target specific areas for acceleration and set the limits for reducing durations.
Use the diagnostic capabilities of Acumen Fuse to evaluate the acceleration options or gain further insight into the impact of slips and delays.
Accurately forecasting cost, completion and revenue all hinges on a solid, reliable project schedule. Fuse produces clear and concise reports so analysis and performance can easily be reported to contractors along with to-do lists of any needed improvements.
Fuse reporting is designed to be hierarchical so that it accommodates planners, schedulers and executive’s needs. You can drill down, slicing and dicing through multiple levels (e.g., Work Breakdown) or by any other code or user field to quickly pinpoint potential issues with your schedule. Conversely, summarize detailed results and publish to project dashboards, executive briefings and PowerPoint presentations, all at the click of a button.
Acumen Risk is incredibly powerful, analyzing thousands of activities in seconds while accounting for scope uncertainty, work complexity, risk events, weather events and opportunities. Acumen Risk is also full-featured and very user friendly, so it eliminates the statistical and logical complexities of building risk models against large project schedules.
Risk Exposure — Identify probabilistic completion dates and required contingency at any selected confidence level
Risk Drivers — Find out the driving risk events and which activities have the highest risk exposure
Risk Comparison — Compare the S-curves or distribution of any number of scenarios such as: mitigated vs. non mitigated and identify which paths carry the most risk driving out the completion date
Uncertainty Inputs — How much of the schedule has been flagged as realistic? Find out quickly with the Uncertainty Inputs report
Risk Sensitivity — Quickly assess the relationship between durations and/or costs by generating a scatter chart showing their interaction. Add a Joint Confidence Level (JCL) curve to the view to gain insight into the probability of meeting cost and schedule commitments
Integrated Risk Register — Map events to the activities they affect for true insight into impact on the schedule. Evaluate the overhead of mitigation plans to determine if their benefit outweighs their cost
Unrivaled Performance — From input to reporting, Acumen Risk performs up to five times faster than current risk analysis software
