Integration Between HD and Primavera P6 Keeps Budgets and Schedules Synchronized
Keeping detailed budgets and schedules in sync would be easy if your projects never changed. Integration between HD estimating and control solutions and Oracle Primavera P6 allows you to make changes one time and simultaneously update the budget and schedule. No more copying and pasting and no more importing and exporting.
- Create cost and resource-loaded schedules in record time.
- Easily keep the work plan, budget, and schedule in sync when things change, such as project scope, item quantities, shift arrangements, and more.
- Maintain tasks in the estimate that do not appear in the schedule.
- Maintain tasks in the schedule that are not synchronized with the estimate.
- Run “what if” scenarios across the budget and schedule to easily evaluate the impact of alternative resources, shift arrangements, production rates, and more.
- Streamline analysis of cash flow, earned value, and resource utilization with flexible, built-in tools and graphical output.

With HD and Oracle Primavera P6 working together, you can cut valuable time out of the process and have instant answers to the toughest “what if” questions that come your way.
Create Cost-Loaded Schedules in Record Time
- Create projects in HD from existing schedules
- Automatically load cost items (activities), estimated durations, and costs from HD projects into the schedule
- Select which cost items from the HD project to include as activities in the schedule
- Roll up multiple cost items from HD into single activities in the schedule
- Drive schedule durations from estimated durations in HD, including productivity-based durations
- Drive schedule durations from “plug” durations in HD, allowing schedules to show different durations than the assumptions made in the budget
Keep the work plan, budget, and schedule in sync when things change
- Take advantage of one-click, real-time synchronization between HD Solutions and the schedule (no import/export required)
- Automatically update activity IDs, descriptions, durations, resources, and costs when changes are made in the HD estimating and control solutions
- Automatically update durations, start dates, and finish dates in HD when changes are made to the schedule
- Automatically launch the linked schedule from within HD with a single mouse click
- Control what information gets passed between HD and the schedule on a project-by-project basis
Run “what if” Scenarios Across the Budget and Schedule
- Perform “what if” analysis to simultaneously see the cost and timing impact of changes made to either the HD budget or schedule
- Change production rates or crew configurations in HD and instantly see the resulting impact in the schedule
- Change shift arrangements in HD and instantly see the impact on the schedule
- Change quantities in HD and instantly see the impact on the schedule
- Make changes to durations in the schedule (e.g., drag bars to make them longer or shorter) and instantly determine the production rates required in HD to meet the new scheduled duration
Streamline Analysis of Cash Flow, Earned Value, and Resource Utilization
- Simplify earned value analysis and reporting using powerful tools in Oracle Primavera P6 and HD estimating and control solutions
- Produce detailed cash flow graphs with ability to control cost and revenue curves, finance expense, and payment timing
- Produce detailed resource utilization graphs showing resource usage and cost over time for individual resources or resource types
- Export cash flow and resource utilization data to Microsoft Excel with a single mouse click
