Metro rail projects are highly complex, because they involve many stakeholders – Govt. authorities, Project Owner organizations, Investors, EPC contractor and many more sub-contractors & consultants. Each piece of the project is built by the joint efforts of these stakeholders. That requires massive amount of project information to be shared and tracked in real time.
Challenge with disparate project control systems
Having many project stakeholders results in communication challenges. This coordination problem is further compounded due to the disparate project control tools typically used in managing infrastructure projects.
A typical infra project depends on the following set of tools –
- MS Project / Primavera to create and manage schedule
- ERP to track cash flow and manage accounting
- Emails & shared folders for collaboration
- Many, many spreadsheets to track progress of different types of project activities
It is very difficult to get the real time picture of what is happening in a project, without a central platform to connect all these tools.
