CPM Scheduling and Claims

Taradigm’s scheduling team has extensive experience in the field and has expert knowledge of Oracle’s suite of Primavera software. We are available to join your team at the planning stage and throughout the life cycle of a project. 

Primavera P6 CPM Scheduling

Taradigm’s experts specialize in providing Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling services. We apply our depth of experience, Primavera expertise and industry best practices to develop initial baseline schedules, and review and apply regular updates. Throughout the course of your project, Taradigm can provide both forensic and prospective Time Impact Analysis. We collaborate with your P6 users to mitigate unwanted and unforeseen conditions by maintaining an accurate and up-to-date project schedule. 

Baseline Schedule Development

A project’s baseline schedule is used to measure deviations from an original plan or update. Cost and resource loaded schedules are often used to project anticipated expenditures, resource planning, and invoicing events. Our team of experience schedulers and Primavera P6 experts will work with your team to develop an optimized schedule for initial submission, change orders, claims support and project delivery.

Time Impact Analysis

A Time Impact Analysis (TIA) is a prospective examination of a schedule against a baseline to determine and quantify the effects of unplanned events. Often, liquidated damages, contract extensions and monetary incentives are at stake. Our scheduling and claims team will expertly evaluate project contract documents including schedule revisions and produce detailed reports and narratives.

Schedule Updates

Schedule updates are performed by our experienced schedulers with input from your project team. Typically, updates are delivered electronically by the project team to us who will incorporate changes and create a new baseline. We will analyze the data for errors and optimize each update to ensure that your schedule is maintained and accurate.

Scheduling Claims and Litigation

Our consultants can provide a thorough analysis of your project schedule to support a scheduling claim or your case in a litigation. We compare the initial schedule baseline against actual completed work to reconcile who is responsible for delays.

Implementations

Taradigm’s consultants have over 10 years of experience implementing Primavera P6 Professional and Enterprise. Our P6 experts can assist at any stage of your implementation, and our method is focused on user enablement.

Our Implementation Methodology is based on an iterative approach designed to set clear expectations. Our consultants work with you to identify milestones and deliverables and establish a communication protocol that mitigates unwanted conditions. Before we begin implementing Primavera P6 into your business process, our consultants guide you through all of the necessary steps and procedures, which include a discovery phase, a configuration phase, and a delivery phase. After Primavera P6 and its system architecture is deployed, we continue to support your users as a reliable technical resource. 

We consider every opportunity a partnership, and we strive to promote user adoption so that Primavera P6 is fully integrated into your organization. Through an initial discovery, proper execution, and user support, we guarantee a rapid return on your investment.

 

Although every implementation is customized to suit your needs, below is a general overview of our unique process.

Discovery

Typical Duration: 1– 2 days

The first step of any implementation is the Discovery Workshop. The objective of this phase is to develop and document an understanding of the current conditions, end-state goals and how to get there. It answers the fundamental questions of how much will it cost, how long it will take and the what the measurable steps are to get there.

PHASE DELIVERABLES

  • Initiative Summary
  • In-place Systems
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Communication Protocol
  • Recommended End-state Configuration(s)
  • Enablement Plan
  • Refined Cost Estimate
  • Proposed Implementation Schedule
  • Infrastructure Diagram
  • Sign-off

Configuration

Typical Duration: 2 – 5 days

Taradigm will configure the system based on the approved Discovery documents. This phase includes utilization of native configuration utilities, integration API’s, and report writing applications.

PHASE DELIVERABLES

  • Installation
  • Data Migration
  • Security Groups and Profiles
  • Features Configurations
  • Workflow
  • Layouts
  • Custom Reports
  • Use and Procedures Guides
  • Sign-off

Delivery

Typical Duration: 2 – 5 days

The last step of the implementation is moving the implementation into a production environment, training the administrator(s) and user community. Training users on a configured system with customizes Use and Procedures Guides facilitates adoption and decreases ramp up time.

PHASE DELIVERABLES

  • Digital Use and Procedures Guide
  • A trained administrator and user community
  • Project Close-out Summary
  • Subsequent Phase Definitions
  • Sign-off

Support

The journey doesn’t end with the final sign-off, the initial production phase is an opportunity to start realizing a return on your investment. Cultural acceptance is critical to a successful adoption of new systems and it’s common for new users to revert back to familiar systems when they are not properly supported. That’s why we stay engaged with your team; initially, we schedule a check-up to make sure that everything is on-track and to address any encountered challenges. Once you start to realize positive momentum, we fall back to an as-needed resource.
