In our previous blog post, 7 Deadly Project Controls Sins, we highlighted project management missteps that contribute to construction project delays and budget overruns.
Last April Oracle’s Aconex organised a Project Controls webinar series which addressed: challenges and solutions, the importance of contract administration, and the benefits of one stop solution.
Even if each project is different, the challenges faced by organizations remain the same:
- Aligning data: Companies are often using different systems that lead to disconnected data across the project.
- Integrating Cost & Schedule: Lack of consistency across these two disciplines is leading to higher risks.
- Managing change: Inaccurate reporting of a scope or variation change during the project decreases the visibility into project status.
- Disconnected environment: Project performance suffers when people, disciplines, and departments are working in isolation.
These challenges stem from various sources, ranging from the design of processes and use of systems to organizational culture. Fortunately, you can overcome these challenges by learning about today’s project controls hurdles.
