All too often, the efforts of project controls teams are hampered by disconnected systems, tedious and error-prone manual processes, and limited collaboration. Without an accurate and timely source of information, organizations cannot effectively measure, forecast, or improve project performance. In this webinar, we discuss the powerful, leading-edge integration technologies of EcoSys EPC (Enterprise Planning & Controls) and the efficiency, visibility, and flexibility that are unlocked once data has been integrated.
Earned Value Management (EVM) is more than people, processes, and tools. It is an integrated service that provides actionable information to decision makers. While often closely associated with Government contracts and compliance, EVM is truly effective across a wide array of industries. But what are the key components and drivers of EVM that add value? What enables you to translate raw data into program visibility and actionable information to drive performance? In this presentation, Glen Alleman discusses the critical aspects of an Earned Value Management system which help form good program management practices. He’ll further explain the benefits of connecting objective technical performance measures with cost and schedule. Then, Christen Bergerud, Chief Operating Officer of EcoSys, will demonstrate how EcoSys EPC serves as a powerful EVM platform, able to reflect these practices and aid in successful program planning and execution.
The project controls discipline is wrought with a tremendous amount of data – costs and schedules, estimates and budgets, contracts and commitments, progress and forecasts. How an organization collects, compiles and reports on this information has an enormous bearing on a project controller’s efficiency and ability to proactively drive improvements in project performance. In the webinar, we’ll review a project controls maturity model that classifies how organizations manage these critical data points and the ensuing ability to measure, forecast and improve project performance.
With a mission to help control costs, limit variances, and most importantly, help deliver successful projects, effective project controls can have a significant and positive financial impact on an organization. Modern project controls software is a fundamental component of a world-class project controls organization. How do you effectively communicate the value of project controls software within your organization? In this webinar, we will build the business case for project controls software.
LADWP is the United States’ largest municipal utility. Their Water Engineering and Technical Services (WETS) Division uses a Capital Improvement Program Management System (CIPMS) to oversee and manage a ten-year capital water system program consisting of over 200 projects.
Shutdowns, Turnarounds and Outages can put millions of dollars at risk each day. Effective management requires assessing daunting volumes of data in very short time windows. Too often existing planning and controls systems are inadequate for the task at hand, leading to inefficient use of resources and costly overruns.
