Planning & Progress

AssaiDCMS allows you to plan which documents need to be produced and compare planned dates with actual progress, on screen or via reports. Furthermore, you can monitor documents through their design progress and expedite using automatic email notifications, reports, and dashboards. Finally, you can roll up progress to work package and transfer actual progress to your planning system.

 

Planning & Progress

Firstly, by linking documents and drawings to the work packages and associating milestone chains and weight factors, the system can automatically roll up the gained progress to the work package level. Consequently, you can export the updated forecast dates, actual and calculated percentage progress against issued status, to your planning system. Moreover, Assai offers many reports and Gantt charts to view and control progress and deliver information.

Integration with Primavera and MS Project

At the click of a button, you can extract the work breakdown structure from your planning system into Assai, and calculate progress based on the linked documents and drawings. You can also calculate planned and forecast progress for every upcoming project period and compare the actuals in S-Curves. In addition, you can transfer actual details and progress percentages back to your planning system. Moreover, AssaiDCMS has full integration with planning tools such as Microsoft Project and Primavera.

Progress Calculation

Engineers check out the design and check it in again for other engineers to review and responsible engineers to approve and sometimes reject. Document controllers send out the documentation for review or approval. The primary process of your documents and drawings results in a gradual progression. In Assai, progress is rolled up to work package level, taking weightings into account. As a result, you can identify problem areas at an early stage and take corrective actions in time. Assai puts you in control.

Gantt Charts & S-Curves

You can access Gantt-charts from the various groupage levels such as work packages and asset items (e.g. systems). Then, you can use these Gantt charts to identify problem areas and drill down to a detailed level, by opening the next level of Gantt Charts. Alternatively, make use of S-curves on any level in your Work Breakdown Structure in order to gain an insight into your project’s progress.

Document Milestones

Make use of document milestone generation to enhance the accuracy of document progress and hence project progress. Based on predefined milestone sets, Assai can calculate the planned delivery dates of the documents. Life cycle actions will result in the automatic update of the milestones and recalculation of the forecast dates. The forecast dates may be rolled up to work package level and transferred back to your planning system. In sum, see the whole picture and stay informed.
