Fueling the energy industry

Challenge:

Constellation Energy is a leading supplier of energy products and services, and a major generator of electricity through nuclear and fossil fuel–burning facilities. They approached us when the company wanted to upgrade its Primavera software from P3 to P6, the enterprise version. The challenge involved integrating Primavera’s scheduling software and the company’s work management system so the two would work in concert, which would greatly increase efficiencies.

What we did:

We sat down with the appropriate players from Constellation Energy’s nuclear and fossil teams to develop and roll out an integration approach that was based on the company’s goals. We developed an executive approach for key performance indicators via the Web, working side by side with the company’s IT department to ensure that the software changes stayed within corporate standards while still meeting the needs of other departments.

Result:

We developed a near real-time system to communicate between the work management system and the Primavera scheduling software. This allows for timely management of schedules, resulting in management to review progress on any aspect of a project at any time. We also created Primavera user manuals, provided customized training, standardized the Primavera software for the entire company, and developed dashboard reports for company executives.
