Description

The Acumen UK User Group is pleased to announce our next meeting on the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept 6th at The Old Ship Pub, 25 Upper Mall, Hammersmith, London W6 9TD.

The basis on which the User Group is founded, and meetings are facilitated, is “Show and Tell”: the aim is to encourage Acumen users to share their experiences, ideas and best practices with fellow Users. Following the format of our inaugural meeting back on 19th of April, there will be six presentations over a four-hour period, interspersed with breaks for networking and wrapping up with a closing general session. The agenda is as follows:

1:00-2:00 – Arrival and networking

2:00-3:00 – Chair's opening, followed by the initial three presentations of 20 minutes each

- Dan Patterson, Founder of Acumen and inventor of Fuse, 360 and Acumen Risk will present his thoughts and vision as to where next generation schedule analytics and forecasting is headed.

- Simon Taylor, Head of Programme Planning for High Speed 2 will discuss NEC3 Contacts and how data integrity is so critical to streamlining programme acceptance and contract management on this mega project.

- Niall Faris with Bazalgette Tunnel Limited, the private consortium building the Thames Tideway Tunnel, will discuss the use of Acumen on bid analysis, scenario modelling and analysing contractor schedules. ( new case study here (http://more.deltek.com/Tideway)

3:00–3:30 – Break and networking

3:30–4:30 – Second group of presentations

- Andrew Chillingsworth of Atkins Rail will discuss quality reviews of project schedules, a process that generally takes two days for a 1,500-2,000 line schedule. (20 minutes)

- Rob Edwards will present the Acumen v8 preview and roadmap. Phil Shatz and Maria Simonsen will also discuss resources available to users (support, video library, learning portal, white papers and case studies)

4:30 – 5:00 – Chair’s closing remarks and General Session

A private Linkedin group has been setup so that registered delegates have the option of making themselves known to each other.
