Many of you have probably used Oracle Primavera P6, the industry leader in project scheduling. Anyone that has been in Project Controls, most likely has used P6 to manage their projects. It’s the backbone of construction planning, monitoring and reporting.
People at every level of a project need to see different details from P6 for their individual tasks. That means you need to make P6 data available in your Project Management Information System (PMIS) in a way that all your stakeholders can use and understand it.
Easier said than done. However, Lydon Solutions has been integrating P6 scheduling information into SharePoint for years. We evaluated how and where users need to access P6 data, and then built responsive apps and components that integrate P6 throughout the Construction Viz platform.
Here are some details.
Construction Viz P6 App
Our Construction Viz P6 app returns data in a configurable grid with powerful query and search capabilities. Users can easily slice and dice schedule information and even export it to Excel, if needed.
Our P6 component can return schedule data based on queries within a form. Since many construction forms rely on P6 data, Construction Viz users can enable this component in any of our existing form apps—from field daily inspection reports to submittals—as well as in any custom-designed forms. The P6 component even allows users to add data to schedules, such as percent completed, quantities complete and expected completion dates. This information can be stored in Construction Viz for further reporting.
Construction Viz Scheduler
The easy-to-use Construction Viz Scheduler app integrates with P6. This means users can view summary and detailed P6 schedules, which can be shared with the entire project team.
Our P6 solutions are just one of many apps and components in Construction Viz that can turn SharePoint and Office 365 software into a robust construction project management solution.
