How LA Metro Utilized the Benefits of Primavera P6
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro), one of the largest transportation agencies in the United States, relied on Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) and Oracle’s Primavera Contract Management to help manage their "Measure R" project, a $40 billion transportation and infrastructure program.
"Measure R," the largest transportation program in history, was approved by voters in 2008 to provide traffic relief and infrastructure upgrades across eighty-eight cities in Los Angeles County by 2030. Key components of Measure R included the repair, construction and expansion of new light and commuter rails, carpool lanes, highways and local streets.
Benefits of Primavera P6
In order to efficiently manage, plan, build and eventually operate the various complex projects involved in Measure R, LA Metro deployed Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM to improve communications, data accuracy and project performance analysis.
Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM allowed LA Metro to standardize data on a single, automated reporting platform that aided in forecasting project and program costs through simple yet thorough dashboard analysis. Oracle’s P6 EPPM also provides comprehensive insight into unforeseen project changes and aids in determining appropriate project and program actions involving staff, scope, time and cost.
Using Primavera Contract Management
LA Metro also implemented Oracle’s Primavera Contract Management to ensure that projects were completed within budget and on time. The use of Primavera Contract Management unifies many different organizations and companies onto a single system where complex coordination and document controls are implemented, managed and maintained, driving accountability and program performance.
Over 65,000 customers worldwide rely on Oracle’s enterprise applications to accommodate their project and program needs. Oracle provides a simple solution for customers to benefit from the latest technology advances that greatly improve software usability and drives better business performance.
