501 - Managing Risk in Primavera Risk Analysis (Pertmaster)


The Primavera Risk Analysis tool enables Monte Carlo risk analysis to be applied to scheduling tools to create dramatically more realistic planning and more rational decision making, while enabling targeted management of high risk tasks. It runs in conjunction with many scheduling tools, including Primavera P6. This course is aimed at those who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the scheduling and risk analysis capabilities of the Oracle Primavera Risk Analysis tool. The course provides "hands-on" exercises for advanced project scheduling, quantitative and qualitative risk modeling with Primavera Risk Analysis (Pertmaster).
