Acumen Fuse is a project analysis and visualization tool that takes snapshots from scheduling, costing, risk analysis and EV tools and analyzes them in an integrated environment, according to the vendor. This project assessment software uses ribbons to group project and portfolio information into categories such as discipline, location or phase.
The Acumen Fuse library of analysis metrics, which can be run against each ribbon, include the DCMA 14-point assessment, a comparison of current progress to a project’s baseline plan and any custom metrics a user wishes to define, the vendor said. With the data generated from that analysis, Acumen Fuse users can identify project plan issues such as aggressive targets, “risk hot spots” and cost overruns. Users can then create templates for custom reporting, the vendor said.
Acumen Fuse integrates with several project management tools – including Microsoft Project, Primavera P6, Pertmaster and Deltek Open Plan – as well as Microsoft Excel.
