Client Overview

Project Management specialist overseeing a large building remediation program after Hurricane Sandy needed to move from on-premise P6 program development to the Primavera Cloud to share schedule information with Contractors and Owners Representatives.

Challenges

  • Setup a new P6 environment in the Primavera Cloud within 2 weeks

  • Transfer all P6 program data for over 750 projects in a standalone PPM database

  • Over 400 baselines needed to be moved as well

Results

  • Emerald provided P6-Loader aaS

  • Enterprise Data: built and loaded for EPS, OBS, Users, User Profiles

  • Global Data: merged and cleaned up while loading over 400 Resources and 50 Calendars

  • Project Data: 756 projects, 455 Baselines, 265,802 activities. Activity codes, resource assignments, and relationships were all transferred.

  • Approach - used a combination of XER and P6-Loader functionality

  • Saved weeks of manually re-creating global data, users/profiles, and baseline management. Went live 1 week after getting files.
