IMMPOWER® to Primavera P6®

Problem

IMMPOWER is a strong EAM tool but many large organizations want a more enterprise streamlined approach to project planning. When your organization wants to migrate to Primavera P6, many plants are afraid that key historical data will be lost in the transition. The data in IMMPOWER will need to be migrated into the new software efficiently and accurately, without manual entries.

 

Solution

Emerald Associates developed a conversion program that enables automatic migration of historical job plans from IMMPOWER into Primavera P6. The client simply sends their IMMPOWER files to Emerald and we use the conversion tool to migrate data into Primavera. This includes conversion of all the libraries, projects and reports. The conversion program remaps the ADM (Arrow Diagramming Method) to PDM (Precedence Diagramming Method), creates resources, codes, etc.   We then review the conversion log and validate the results of the conversion. Finally the projects are sent to the client in the Primavera format, ready to be imported.

Additionally, Emerald has created customized turnaround training that explains the similarities and differences between IMMPOWER and P6. This helps employees to become familiar with Primavera faster. Another important benefit is that all the logic is migrated to Primavera accurately.
