The Time to Know is Now Give us the current status of the: Schedule of our tank movements Costs of the jet fuel needed Cobra Financials Resources required to build a new munitions depot OPEN SOURCE Washington, D.C. The Data and the People that Need to Know are Around the World Okinawa Guam Marshall Islands San Diego, CA Washington, D.C.
We mean……… Around the World ! Okinawa Washington, D.C. San Diego, CA Guam All Data is Integrated! Marshall Islands
The People that Have the Data and Need to Know are Around the World Okinawa Washington, D.C. San Diego, CA Guam All Information is shared! REAL TIME Marshall Islands Staff Receive Reports and Dashboards Real Time or by Schedule
By Combining Data From Multiple Sources Actionable Information is Known … Issues are Quickly Exposed… The resources required to build a new munitions depot shows a shortage of cement in Okinawa The tanks will arrive in Guam in 2 weeks Fortunately, excess cement is in San Diego and can compensate to remove the bottleneck Jet Fuel Costs The jet fuel costs for all fours sites by fuel type with shortages highlighted are displayed. … and Solutions Become Revealed
Turn Disconnected Data Sets into Actionable Information So you are telling us that we can get all of the necessary information to understand the issues and take corrective action as soon as possible? Mission Accomplished!

What If Analyzer What-If Analyzer is a stand-alone application connected to a Primavera Database or Excel that allows a user to see multi-year allocations of funds based on a project data. The user can then perform what-if scenarios by moving, copying, adding and deleting activities, creating relationships between them and then rescheduling the activities. The scenario can be saved as a WIA file and reloaded into What-If Analyzer at a later date.
