The Safran Risk Management tool has been designed to be the next generation of probabilistic analysis tools - one with the unique ability to create both cost and schedule risk models and map the two together. Safran Risk is developed by the same team that developed Pertmaster, long the industry standard.
This software has been developed with a visually appealing and accessible user friendly interface, with a fully integrated scheduling environment. Safran has developed its Risk Management software to integrate seamlessly with Oracle Primavera (P6) and Microsoft Project tools.
