AVEVA->P6 Engineering Document Integration

Simplifying Engineering Updates

Written by Nicole Jardin

Client Overview

One of Canada's many potash companies runs all their capital projects with P6. With one scheduler on the team, it is difficult to keep up with the dozens of projects on the go to ensure monthly reporting is accurate.

Challenges

  • Updating some 20+ projects in P6 was time consuming at the end of each month

  • Mid-month reporting was not easy to do without spending extra hours to get all the updates into P6

  • Going over the updates with the extended team took a lot of coordination to schedule with so many people with different schedules

Results

  • Integrated documents statuses from Aveva

  • Templated the different task types and package types with preset calculation methods

  • Documents planned, in progress, completed, deleted

  • Set the start dates of tasks in progress, updated the percent completes and flagged changes to the tasks

  • Updated the resources - actual labor units
