What are the differences between Primavera vs MS-Project


Primavera Oracle and Microsoft Project are the most commonly used softwares packages for Scheduling and Controlling in Construction and Development Projects.

P6 is by far more suited for a multi-user, large corporate project structure, particularly where most projects are part of a larger project, or an ongoing corporate management strategy that integrates projects in a networked system, particularly with a lot of shared resources. The three major downsides to P6 are the sharp learning curve, the need for a system administrator, and the overall and ongoing cost.

MS Project is more suited for independent projects, smaller corporations with less projects, a corporate management strategy that separates projects from the business management system, and projects that are largely dependent on external resources. The downsides to Project are the difficulties in integrating multiple resource-related or otherwise multi-level projects, and creating and integrating resource-dependent scheduling and auto-leveling.

These are the main factors that should be considered when selecting your Project Management software.
