What’s New in Primavera P6 is version 18.8

whats New P6The latest version of Primavera P6 is version 18.8 released publicly in August 2018. 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

  • Performance Percent Complete Field Based on Labour Units.
  • Upload Graphics to the P6 Database to View and Print from Any Location.
  • 32-bit Operating Systems not supported. It is recommended you now use 64-bit Operating Systems.
  • Import Zipped XER Files.
  • Activity Owner Functionality Improvements.
  • Choose Whether to Update Actual and Budgeted Units and Costs When Updating Baselines with New Assignments.
  • Managing Personally Identifiable Information.
  • Prime Lean Task Integration with P6 EPPM.
  • Improvements in Offline Working for P6 Professional.

DC PRO Redesigns Failing Support System for Oman Convention Facility Using CAESAR II


DC PRO Engineering, headquarters in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, is an engineering company that services in engineering design, consulting, and project management plus engineering reviews, feasibility studies, efficiency monitoring, and recommendations for energy performance improvement.

Selected to re-design the failing supporting system for the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre project, DC PRO used CAESAR II for the modifications needed to be designed within the original supporting system while rectifying the failing supports. They also verified the other existing supports after modifications to ensure no further failures would occur once in operation.

Using CAESAR II, they were able to save the client significant expenses compared to having to change the entire support system. They completed the project with minimal delay from schedule.

DC PRO received the 2017 CAESAR II Drivers of Success Runner-up Award for its use of the software. The annual Drivers of Success competition recognizes innovative applications of Hexagon PPM products, impressive project results, and significant benefits from collaboration among disciplines and the integration of the products.

ICPE Reduces Man-Hours with CADWorx on Design of Crude-By-Rail Facility


Intermountain Consumer Professional Engineers (ICPE), a U.S. company providing mechanical, electrical, civil, and structural engineering and design services, needed to design a facility in Vancouver, Washington to deliver crude oil to U.S. refineries.

With strict environmental and energy regulations, the project faced a long approval process involving extensive reviews and revisions. ICPE needed to ramp-up quickly so they decided to use CADWorx on BricsCAD platform. By doing so, they had to develop material take-offs for estimates and evaluate alternative site layouts to deliver material savings and balance costs with efficient operations.

Using CADWorx, ICPE improved internal processes without increasing staff. The team was able to eliminate incorrect and inconsistent data between pipe specifications and 3D models and help save an estimated of 960 man-hours.

ICPE received the 2017 CADWorx Drivers of Success Runner-up Award for its use of the software. The annual Drivers of Success competition recognizes innovative applications of Hexagon PPM products, impressive project results, and significant benefits from collaboration among disciplines and the integration of the products.
