How it works
Create library of approved task and cost models that represent the vast majority of your projects.
Planners and Estimators create plans and budgets by inserting various models into a project.
Formulas with configurable variables are used to ensure a fast and accurate fit for each unique project while maintaining governance.

The PBA Project Modeler offers a superior planning experience compared to other tools
Whether you currently use Oracle P6, Microsoft Project, estimating applications, or just plain-old spreadsheets, the Adeaca PBA Project Modeler will improve your process significantly.
- Manual copy and paste tasks and budgets from past projects in a project management application, estimation tool or or old Excel sheets.
- Error-prone and time-consuming as tasks and estimations must be highly modified after insertion to fit the new project
- Ungoverned and highly irregular – best practices are not captured and enforced
- While flexible, it is undisciplined and dependent on individual diligence and talent
- Not scalable – only as good as how the project manager’s or estimator’s last project relates to the new one, which differs for everyone
Adeaca PBA Project Modeler
- Build project work breakdown structures and cost breakdown structures through standardized processes from an enterprise-wide library of approved and published models
- Streamlined and scalable – Construct a unique plan based on uniform components resulting in increased company-wide standardization
- New guidelines or revised best practices are easily adopted and shared through central model library
- Highly flexible yet structured – schedules and estimates can be based on structured, formula-driven models. The planner can change individual variables based on the project. Results in quicker but controlled set up.
