Primavera P6 version 18.8 released by Oracle – What’s new?

For users of Primavera P6, the major release 18.8 is now available. With enhancements previously only available to Oracle cloud users this is big news.

A huge advantage of the new release is that Oracle has removed the last of the Java applets from Primavera P6 EPPM. The HTML-based pages load faster and do not require additional plug-ins. You will find that some of the HTML pages have the same functionality as before while others have been redesigned.

Below are a few more of the enhancements available with Release 18.8

o   Performance Percent Complete Field Based on Labour Units.

o   Upload Graphics to the P6 Database to View and Print from Any Location.

o   32-bit Operating Systems not supported. It is recommended you now use 64-bit Operating Systems.

o   Import Zipped XER Files.

o   Activity Owner Functionality Improvements.

o   Choose Whether to Update Actual and Budgeted Units and Costs When Updating Baselines with New Assignments.

o   Managing Personally Identifiable Information.

o   Prime Lean Task Integration with P6 EPPM.

o   Improvements in Offline Working for P6 Professional.
