Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

As the subject suggests i'm keen to find out if there is any difference in use/functionality etc between Pertmaster and Primavera Risk Analysis.  I have used Pertmaster briefly in the past on P3 programmes but i may need to use Primavera risk Analysis which is within P6 (under the Tools menu) in the near future, are there any differences in these??


Thanks in advance for any help.

Unless you already have Primavera Risk Analysis installed and properly linked, you will not access it (OPRA) under the "Tools" link.  OPRA is an expensive stand-alone program that works with P3, P6 and MSP.  The Tools link can be a handy step saver, but you may loose some contraints and LOE activity definition that will be there as .xer import.  There was another 'bug', but I do not recall it right now.  

As to your original question, Pertmaster became Primavera Risk Analysis after Oracle bought Primavera.  The current version is 8.7.3, I believe.
