The company needed a set of applications to monitor the work of contractors, assess progress in solving tasks and achieve goals at each stage. The need for such a system arose from the start of construction of two major facilities in the region - the Petrochemical Plant and the Gas Processing Plant. Around 30,000 people were involved in the construction of each of these facilities.
The company has its own methodology for assessing the construction progress which helps to decompose tasks and monitor progress towards achieving goals. Resource estimation and planning was implemented using Oracle Primavera and needed to be compared with the actual construction progress, information about which was scattered in other sources - in the ERP system and a large number of Excel spreadsheets.
