Integrated, Scalable Project Management Platform is Helping to Plan, Build and Operate Tomorrow’s Infrastructure Today

Redwood Shores, Calif. – July 12, 2011

News Facts

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), the third largest transportation agency in the United States, selected Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM) and Oracle’s Primavera Contract Management to help manage Measure R, a $40 billion transit and highway expansion plan.
The largest transportation program in history, Measure R was approved by voters in 2008 to provide traffic relief and transportation upgrades across 88 cities in Los Angeles County by 2030. Key projects include the repair, construction and expansion of new light and commuter rails, carpool lanes, highways and local street repairs.
In order to help prioritize, plan, build and ultimately operate the many different complex projects involved, Metro implemented Primavera P6 EPPM to enhance communications, improve data accuracy and provide detailed insights into project and program performance.
As an integrated, scalable project management solution, Oracle’s Primavera P6 EPPM has enabled Metro to centralize and standardize data on a single, automated reporting platform that helps forecast costs, provides simple dashboard analysis and insight into sudden project changes and can help determine appropriate course corrections around staff, scope, time and cost.
To further help ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget, Metro has also deployed Oracle’s Primavera Contract Management. This has unified separate companies and organizations onto a central system where complex coordination and document controls are initiated, routed and maintained for one version of the truth; driving accountability and program performance.
Metro is working with Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Gold partner DR McNatty & Associates on the implementation.

“Measure R is a critical and complex program spanning transportation projects that range from extensions to existing subways and rail services, to a host of highway improvements,” said Brian Boudreau, Executive Officer Project Control and Administration, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority. “To manage a project of this scale and complexity, it was immediately clear that we would need an integrated system that could replace inefficient manual processes and centralize project data. After careful review, we selected Oracle’s Primavera project portfolio management solutions. The detailed and timely insights Oracle’s Primavera P6 and Contract Management can provide across our entire portfolio of projects will help improve collaboration, increase efficiencies and ultimately help us ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget.”
