linear planning presentation at U of Washington

The Advantages of Linear Planning | University of Washington | May 16th 2019

 

Lorne Duncan, Founder & CEO of Petroglyph Projects US, will be presenting at the University of Washington, in partnership with the Washington Department of Transportation to civil engineering and Ph.D students interested in infrastructure development.

Linear projects are uniquely complex in that they operate on a time-distance axis.

Experience has shown that a tailored, linear-first approach to planning projects like rail, light rail, tunnel, bridges and pipelines has proven to deliver projects closer to baseline.

In his presentation, Lorne will cover both conceptual and practical concepts and demonstrate the application of linear planning model using real world examples.

Two of the globe’s leading pipeline organizations required fresh eyes, reliable expertise and accelerated output of project schedules for their pipeline projects, located in the US and Canada.

Although in the same industry, each organization had a distinct sets of needs with differing budgetary limitations, project timelines and resource gaps that needed to be addressed.

The team at Petroglyph Projects is well known for their proven expertise in driving improved project outcomes for their clients by deploying flexible, rapid and effective scheduling support solutions.

In particular, the team’s depth of experience working on pipeline projects is attractive to infrastructure organizations working on complex project schedules and bids.

The team at Petroglyph assessed the company’s requirements and tailored customized solutions to drive improved outcomes in each instance.

This Spring, 5 highly trained team members were dispatched to provide both scheduling and estimating support and project controls and support services for a total five different pipeline projects in North America.

While the level of support and service is robust, Petroglyph offers their clients various options to suit an array of budgets and schedules, including providing remote work arrangements that eliminate travel expenses.

Currently, Lorne Duncan, the founder & CEO of Petroglyph Projects is providing remote TILOS Scheduling for four different pipeline projects of interest to one organization.

The scope of work includes creating bid schedules in TILOS in order to provide, accurate, transparent and reliable data on the resources and timing required for project success.

TILOS linear scheduling software is considered by global leaders in infrastructure to be the premiere linear project scheduling software solution. Because the team at Petroglyph Projects consists of multiple TRIMBLE Certified TILOS Trainers, they are especially qualified to provide support in this capacity.

In contrast, the second organization, a pipeline owner company, required both a broad and in depth level of support, training and resources for their major pipeline project.

As such, Senior Consultant Daniel Cadena supported a remote team of 7 by providing project controls and support services, software training and schedule support .

Petroglyph Projects Provides Project Controls Support: Another Pipeline Project Success Story

A large North American pipeline owner company with over 7,000 employees wanted to improve their project outcomes, so they turned to Petroglyph Project’s proven expertise in project controls support.

A large North American pipeline owner company with over 7,000 employees wanted to improve their project outcomes, so they turned to Petroglyph Project’s proven expertise in project controls support.

The problem:

The owner’s current tool, P6 (Primavera) lacked the specialized linear project management features required to provide total transparency into the project’s data to manage the project effectively .  

The project team was constrained by non-intuitive multi page reports that were lacking both the specific details on project progress, as well as an easy to obtain and visually accurate macro-overview of the project.

The project controls recommendation:

The team at Petroglyph Projects analyzed the needs of the project controls team, and recommended TILOS Time Location Software due to it’s proven excellence in improving linear infrastructure project outcomes.

TILOS’ linear project specific functionality was the missing piece that would enable the owner’s team to access, proactively plan, adjust, optimize and report on the project’s progress.

The stakeholders at this pipeline owner company were impressed with the track record TILOS has in improving project outcomes and approved the provisioning of multiple software licences.

 

The project controls solution:

Petroglyph Projects provided complete end to end pipeline project controls support.

TILOS software provisioning:

 

Once the TILOS licences were provisioned, the team at Petroglyph Projects was ready for implementation with TILOS training for the project team onsite at their offices in Houston, TX.

 

TILOS software training:

Both two day basic and two day advanced TILOS training courses and their associated PDU’s were delivered to the TILOS licence holders on the project team.

The TILOS customized training was the perfect way to help the project team begin to import data and implement TILOS renowned functionality on a specific project.

 

Onsite project controls and implementation support:

The team at Petroglyph Projects then transitioned from TILOS software provisioning and training into providing specific project controls and implementation support.  Providing on site software technical support and assistance with using TILOS in the day-to-day of project scheduling, changes, reporting and troubleshooting. In addition to in the office support, the the team also meets with the field controllers regularly to help ensure seamless communication of project data across the organization.”

“They see the value in the tool and feel comfortable having me here to support them in using this tool” says Daniel Cadena, of Petroglyph Projects who has been onsite with the pipeline owner company for the past 9 months.

“TILOS adds a lot of value. It’s easier for the team to show the status of the project construction to all stakeholders. Now they have 7-8 advanced users and they now have the ability to perform detailed project analysis, which they couldn’t do before.”

 

What this pipeline owner project team has to say about Petroglyph Projects software provisioning, training, implementation and project support services:

 

“I was initially skeptical, having been a Primavera user for a couple of decades. I didn’t see any reason to use anything different. I’d heard about March Charts. The managers were asking for them. I became persuaded based on what I saw presented by Petroglyph.

We’re using it in the most major project in the company and the benefits it provides are immeasurable. I am so impressed.

It’s difficult to get planning managers to use software tools, but their level of engagement with this tool is the hottest I’ve seen.

When we made the decision to implement TILOS we were just 60 days out from construction and I just didn’t know how we were going to pull this off. I don’t know how we would have implemented TILOS without Daniel and Petroglyph. Generally a timeline like that is insurmountable even using a tool we’re familiar with.

To anyone doing any kind of location based project, the tool and the team at Petroglyph is a must have.”

– L. Davis, Lead Planner
