Speed + Control
Your sales proposals, built from real project data are faster and more accurate.
- Project schedules are constructed through task models that incorporate enterprise best practices
- Enable project managers and planners to quickly generate project schedules you are confident to keep
- Project estimates are formulated through carefully curated cost models
- Enable your estimators and controllers to produce optimal budgets in minimal time and with minimal errors
Enhance Your Sales Process
With the Project Modeler, Adeaca Project Business Automation helps you generate the right numbers as soon as you engage with prospects. Your project proposals are not guesses. They are accurate representations of the project you will perform.
- Extend project governance to the sales process through standardized models that generate the optimal plan
- Construct project schedules and cost estimates unique to each customer based on uniform components
- Accelerate sales by creating accurate plans faster and quickly build trust with prospects
Instantly transition from sales to execution
No more, “Now how do we make this work?”
Since the plan you presented in your sales proposal is based on accurate models, you can transition from the proposed plan to an executable schedule and budget instantly.
Deliver to the customer exactly what you said you would.
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 Primavera, 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.
