EAST HARTFORD, Conn. – Project management experts at jet engine designer Pratt & Whitney, a Raytheon Technologies company in East Hartford, Conn., needed software to help manage complex projects. They found their solution from DecisionEdge in Austin, Texas, and Encore Analytics LLC in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.

The two companies are working together to replace Pratt & Whitney's current Earned Value Management Tool Suite. The companies are basing their replacement project-management tool with the DecisionEdge WebEVM and the Encore Analytics Empower software tools.

Pratt & Whitney specializes in the design, manufacture, and service of commercial and military aircraft engine systems, as well as auxiliary power units. Financial details of the deal were not released.

DecisionEdge and Encore Analytics will provide Pratt & Whitney with software tools that provide data and value for portfolio, program, and project management.

The DecisionEdge WebEVM has tight integration with Oracle P6, Microsoft Project, and Empower. The tool's enterprise speed, web-based ease of use, and error checking enables users to operate with lean resources and focus on data analysis instead of data loading and verification, company officials say.

The Encore Analytics Empower browser-based analytical tool integrates earned value, schedule, work authorization, and other key performance data to enable proactive management of complex projects.

Empower is for control account managers, program managers, support staff, and oversight organizations. The tool helps locate problem areas, identify trends, display element-of-cost information, graphically display schedule Gantt chart information, and provide immediate insight into data quality issues.
