Technical Program:  Paper or Plastic?
Microsoft Project versus Oracle Primavera P6

Abstract: Selecting the appropriate scheduling software to be used for a project is one of the key decisions that must be made prior to the start of the project. The choice of scheduling software is often dictated by contract documents or by the contractor's company standards and guidelines. Regardless of the selection process, the scheduler is going to be 'stuck' with this decision for a long time and he/she needs to realize how this decision affects the development and management of the project schedule.
It is important to understand the features, benefits, and limitations of using the selected scheduling software. In this paper, the authors examine two of the leading scheduling software tools that they regularly use on real construction projects: Microsoft Project Standard and Oracle Primavera P6 Professional. The authors explain the details on how these software packages may best be utilized for scheduling construction projects and programs.
