P6-Scrubber v3 Overview

From the Video...

Thank you for watching this overview video of P6-Scrubber. P6-Scrubber is a tool developed by Emerald Associates that will take an XER and allow you to clean up or remap data in that XER prior to importing it into your P6 database.

So, as projects become larger and your team members are spread out across either the country or sometimes even the world, getting a Primavera P6 database up and deployed in an environment that can be shared is difficult and it's often not a luxury that a lot of us have. So, we often get updates in other ways. We find most commonly those updates are going to come in the way of people sending in XERs to get their information into the project. Now the problem with this is that when you are importing XERs from someone else's database, you're going to get some of the information from their database that you don't necessarily want in yours. What we've done is provide an easy tool to clean up XERs prior to importing them into P6, so your production database doesn't get polluted with all sorts of codes, user-defined fields and calendars that we don't necessarily want or that we don't want to have overwrite what we already have.

We've also found that clients who have very specific contract specifications on how a schedule needs to be put together were wanting the ability to take a look at that XER prior to import and see what's in it so that they can give immediate feedback to those contractors sending in those schedules.

What we found with this tool is that it's really easy to keep your database clean. It's not hard to learn or use, so you don't have to be a P6 expert.
