Managing Massport’s Capital Program and Project Schedules from iPhones

The Massachusetts Port Authority’s 5-Year capital plan is composed of over 340 individual projects of varying types, durations, and stage, and maintains a total budget of over $3 Billion.

Together with PMA Consultants, Massport has developed a method to centralize the cost and schedule management of the Capital Program, created a means of roll-up reporting, and integrated the project (cost and schedule) forecasting with input from Designers, Contractors/Construction Managers, and, most importantly, Project Managers and/or Resident Engineers.

Key to the success of this program implementation was the simplicity by which project managers and resident engineers were able to update and/or get updates on their project’s activities using their iPhones through the Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM app. Advancements in technology have radically simplified the ability to update project schedules and now Massport is able to store Designer, CM, and GC monthly schedule updates in the same database with the same basic structure as master project schedules used for capital planning, analyses, and roll-up reporting.

The speakers will address how through simple collaboration and a shift in responsibility, Massport was able to increase the accuracy of month-over-month financial projections by 35-40%. Additionally, they will highlight how the P6 Integration effort at Massport has changed how the Capital Programs Department manages projects and manages resources (personnel assignments) for projects by increasing transparency and efficiency in decision making.
