Capital Project Management

Project Management

Ushering a successful project to its completion—whether it is a renovation, acquisition, construction, or move project —requires a well-organized repository of project data and workflow practices. ARCHIBUS Project Management gives project team members workflow access to a central storehouse of information that keeps all participants aligned with master planning goals. This helps ensure that projects remain on-schedule and within budget, while providing valuable benchmarking data for future projects.

Provide Centralized, “Top-down” Perspective

ARCHIBUS Project Management creates a central repository from the owner’s perspective, enabling a top-down view of project priorities, actions, costs, and more. Powerful analytic views can summarize the details from hundreds of projects in one convenient matrix. Tracking costs and payments in a centralized repository ensures more efficient capital spending and keeps projects on track. This integrated solution can either supplement or eliminate the need for separate software and procedures that typically characterize capital budgeting and project management.

Synchronize Project Team Members

The application’s central repository structure encourages collaboration by giving disparate team members access to a single source of information. Interactive, Web-based forms make it easy for everyone to view and update information in real-time, and coordinate time-based and location-based tasks. Team members can better align project goals with organizational mission and help identify financial risks and opportunities.

Benchmark Performance

Weighted performance scorecards identify late or over-budget programs and/or projects at a glance. The application makes it easy to review payments, costs by activity type, work packages, and any schedule variances throughout the duration of a project. With all this information at hand, users can easily establish benchmarks and identify projects that are not measuring up to these standards. Tracking historical project data also makes it easier to identify improvement opportunities for future projects.

Streamline Project Oversight

The application includes many features for streamlining project management and reporting, from the planning to the execution phases. Project templates enforce a standardized project methodology among all project members, including service providers or contractors. Integrated workflow capabilities issue relevant, proactive notifications to project team members.
