Major Construction Company Moves to EAI Cloud

Client Overview

This technology upgrade was done at one of the largest and most respected construction services companies in Canada.

Challenges

  • The team was running three separate databases, addressing user access and P6 maintenance in each.

  • Their IT department had on their list, along with numerous other responsibilities, addressing P6 maintenance.

Results

  • The cloud option allowed them to easily consolidate three P6 databases into one. What were three separate databases now run from one database and all users are assigned the security profile applicable for the projects they look after.

  • P6 maintenance is addressed in the Cloud; their IT no longer needs to worry about maintaining it.

Client Overview

Suncor Energy is a Canadian integrated energy company based in Calgary, Alberta. It specializes in production of synthetic crude from oil sands. Thales Group is a French multinational company that designs and builds electrical systems and provides services for the aerospace, defense, transportation and security markets.

Challenges

  • Suncor wanted good technology for their turnaround reporting and for S-curve reporting. They were also having to hire a full-time employee just to work on charts in Excel, and it was wasting both time and money.

  • A few years ago, Thales was struggling with graphics and other, similar charting issues to Suncor. Creating their graphics in Excel was taking a lot of time, and they were struggling with limited visibility into their data.

  • Suncor already had chart types, so in implementing EP-dashboard, we had to change our charts in dashboard to match the coding that Suncor uses.

Results

  • Better visibility as to where things were going wrong, really helped them understand their progress Set it up for two turnarounds in a row because they liked it so much they wanted it for the second turnaround

  • Greater visibility - now they could analyze workback and understand backlog vs. availability, and could see how much work they had currently and, subsequently, how much they could feasibly take on.
