We recently discussed how AI impacts the Construction and Engineering (AEC) industry. Now it’s time to dive into how Project Managers can use AI embedded in their Project Execution technologies to improve productivity and efficiency. One platform at the forefront of this innovation is Oracle Primavera Cloud (OPC), where the fusion of project management and Generative AI opens up a new realm of possibilities for an industry traditionally a few steps behind the rapid pace of technological evolution.  

How Generative AI Enhances Project Management in Oracle Primavera Cloud 

1. Dynamic Scheduling

For the AEC industry, schedules are the core of every project. The schedule ties together activities, resources, dependencies, task management, compliance, and more. Building schedules can take days, and most bidding processes require them. This means you are dedicating hours, if not days, of your scheduling resources without securing the business. What if our day-to-day technology could automate schedules? 

Oracle is embedding a prototype of Generative AI in Oracle Primavera Cloud to help streamline the scheduling process through an AI Chatbot. By uploading an RFP or project documentation, the Bot reads through the content and pulls together a detailed summary to build the schedule. After making the summary, the Bot prompts the user to layer in additional details, like materials needed to be used for your project.

These prompts help mitigate some of the risks associated with AI, along with the time it takes to build the schedule being reduced from days to hours.

2. Risk Mitigation

Generative AI can identify potential risks by analyzing historical project data, external factors, and current project information. Stay alert to potential schedule delays, schedule quality issues, and process inefficiencies, or even understand which projects pose the most significant safety risk. Generative AI can offer risk mitigation strategies, helping organizations anticipate and navigate challenges effectively. 

3. Optimized Resource Allocation

Efficient resource management is critical in project execution. Generative AI helps optimize resource allocation by considering team members’ skills, availability, and historical performance. This results in improved utilization of resources and enhanced productivity. 

4. Predictive Analytics 

By harnessing the capabilities of Generative AI, Oracle Primavera Cloud can offer predictive analytics and forecast project timelines, costs, and potential issues. This foresight enables organizations to proactively address challenges in the supply chain, resource management, or safety – before they escalate. 


AEC technology providers, like Oracle, use Generative AI to solve core business problems. By harnessing the power of data-driven insights and predictive analytics, organizations can achieve greater efficiency, reduce risks, and ultimately deliver successful projects. Yet, it’s crucial for project managers not to rely solely on Generative AI and maintain a thoughtful review of the provided information. As the technology continues to evolve, the synergy between Generative AI and Oracle Primavera Cloud promises a future where project management is not just a process but a strategic advantage in achieving business objectives.
