Capital Projects Technology Roadmap Workshop


Successes: • PM Systems – Established standards • Meridian – typical projects • Constructware – multi-site programs

– Implement on all CM, GC, DB, and multi-site programs – Exploit web-based solutions


Successes: • Meridian – Strategic relationship – Wide-spread adoption • 90% of projects are using Prolog Manager • 1,400 active users / 500 using Prolog Web

– Will migrate to Web-based solution: Proliance


Successes: • Constructware – Collaborative implementations (with architects, suppliers, logistics providers, & clients)

– Enables process reengineering • Survey to Scope of Work • Procurement • Design Review

– Incorporates straight-forward data exchange model (e.g. – w/ logistics provider) – Exceptional ROI


Successes: • Other: – Reverse Auctions (“FreeMarkets”) – Knowledge Sharing: “ikonnect” – Portals – WebEx


Barriers: • • • •

Adversity to change Skepticism of actual benefits Impractical applications of technology Previous experiences with technology that failed at meeting expectations


Actions - Internal • Listen to Operations (find out what they need) • Examine entire process & counsel team • Explore opportunities to reengineer processes using technology where it is practical and adds true value • Implement rigorous change mgmt program – – – –

Obtain initial buy-in and ownership Train, Support, Follow-up, Support… Conduct ROI analyses Advertise successes


Actions - External • Promote collaborative systems (e.g. – Design Development) (and don’t violate trust)

• Promote practical data exchanges • Leverage pertinent information from design to preconstruction to construction to facilities management • Prove value to clients (i.e. – EIS / Dashboard, claims avoidance, progress reports)
