- November 27, 2012 - Galorath Incorporated, a leading provider of advanced modeling tools for project estimation, planning, and control whose clients include NASA, Ford Motor Company, Rockwell Automation, Boeing and Oracle, has released an integration between its software project estimation solution, SEER for Software (SEER-SEM) and Oracle's Primavera P6 Professional Project Management solution.
The integration of SEER for Software with Oracle Primavera P6 brings a robust software project estimating capability to a leading project planning system. Project estimates developed in SEER are exported as customized lifecycles into Primavera P6. The project manager is free to modify the plan to any extent; the SEER estimate will adapt to any changes made and update its estimates accordingly.
"Experience has shown that successful software projects, those projects that are completed on-time and on-budget, were based on achievable project plans. And achievable project plans are best derived from a credible estimate of the project’s cost, schedule, effort, risk and reliability," said Dan Galorath, president and CEO of Galorath Incorporated. "The integration of SEER for Software and Primavera P6 provides an incredibly powerful combination for ascertaining a credible project estimate and then transforming that estimate into an achievable plan along with in-process monitoring and control of the project performance."
As a project gets underway its plan in Primavera P6 is updated and progress is recorded. This information is sent back to SEER for Software to produce regularly updated estimates to complete the project, resulting in updated project plans. This tight integration assures software development organizations of continuing, accurate planning projections based on the projects’ true progress.
