Ensure Project Success Through Schedule Analytics, Risk Analysis and Optimization

The Acumen toolset is designed to provide a structured and repeatable approach to developing sound and realistic project plans. Utilize advanced schedule analytics to improve quality and to provide a sound schedule for schedule risk analysis and optimization with Acumen 360. The Acumen approach is centered on the Deltek Project Maturity Framework. Start with a CPM baseline schedule that is evaluated and adjusted using Fuse, once the schedule quality is consistent then the schedule can be risk adjusted using Acumen Risk and is based on the risk register that has been developed by the project team. Acumen 360 can then be used to optimize the risk adjusted schedule. Touchstone goes a step further in automating your schedule submission process to ensure consistency and quality.

Deltek Acumen is used in these types of projects
  • Infrastructure
  • Engineering
  • Construction
  • Aerospace
  • Oil & Gas
  • Biotech/Pharmaceutical
The Deltek family of products includes
  • Acumen Fuse – schedule quality analytics
  • Acumen Risk – integrated schedule and cost analysis to determine the impact of schedule delays on project cost
  • Acumen 360 – schedule optimization and what-if analysis
  • Touchstone – automate schedule submissions, assessments and feedback to improve quality

Use the Acumen toolset to create great schedules, identify and manage the risks and accelerate completion dates to meet critical project milestones. The Acumen tool suite takes project analysis beyond a simple checklist and resolves project shortcomings in minutes by identifying issues using Acumen Fuse. Acumen Risk provides a easy to use, integrated schedule and cost risk analysis. Once you have created a risk adjusted schedule then Acumen 360 supports completing your projects faster by evaluating schedule scenarios utilizing an interactive acceleration engine.

Drive project success through improved schedule quality, risk assessment, mitigation and schedule optimization.

Acumen Fuse

Deltek Acumen Fuse diagnoses and resolves schedule shortcomings, helping you create the soundest schedules possible, and execute them with consistent success. Acumen Fuse can quickly point out schedule issues and a schedule index (an indication of overall schedule quality). Fuse comes with dozens of schedule metric libraries – from DCMA 14-Point Assessment to GAO Scheduling Best Practices. You can also easily create your own custom set of metrics to measure the schedule quality of your organizations schedules and those of your sub-contractors.

Advanced analytics means problems are quickly and easily identified; schedule cleanser immediately corrects identified issues; flexible reporting enables communication to key people, and multi-platform integration provides seamless analysis and views of the entire project or portfolio.

Acumen Risk

Effectively account for risk events and proactively reduce risk exposure for an accurate, reliable forecast. Straightforward analysis eliminates the statistical and logical complexities of building risk models; user-friendly charts provide insight into key risk drivers and high-risk areas of the schedule allowing for targeted mitigation efforts; a powerful Monte Carlo engine ensures the utmost accuracy and unrivaled analysis performance.

Acumen 360

Deltek Acumen 360 generates schedule scenarios in real time, allowing you to hypothesize acceleration opportunities, or even threats of delay, and immediately see the impact. With Acumen 360 you can identify areas where acceleration is possible, helping you to meet faster project completion demands or recover slips and delays incurred during execution.

The interactive engine allows for fast evaluation of multiple scenarios. You can accelerate (or decelerate) any area of the schedule and immediately see the impact on the project finish. Because the project maintains its integrated with your native scheduling tool, the newly created scenarios are easily exported and ready to use.

Touchstone

Automate and standardise the schedule submission process for subcontractor management and internal PMO use with Acumen Touchstone. Schedule assessment and feedback are automated so submitters can get results and make corrections to improve schedule quality and meet your requirements. Acumen Touchstone takes the burden of validating every schedule submittal off your shoulders, helping focus efforts on areas that need improvement and deliver successful projects.
