Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System July 18, 2005
July 18, 2005
An initial comprehensive project plan for all phases employing QDS Systems project management system was completed this week. Project managers employ a tightly integrated Web-based implementation of Microsoft Project Server
coupled to a Tenrox professional time and billing system. This system allows project managers to specify activities and tasks, task dependencies, resource and personnel assignments in Microsoft Project. Tasks and assignments are automatically distributed to personnel via Tenrox. Personnel update actual work completed daily in Tenrox, which automatically updates the Microsoft Project plan actual progress.
The Phase II general contractor called a meeting with the City engineer. A proposal was offered requesting additional funds to cover the shortfall (discussed in the previous blog installment). The City engineer is making application for approval of a change order to go before the City Council.
Renewal of the city's contract with the project overall engineering consultant has been placed on hold, requiring QDS Systems to directly interface with the city engineer. The written notice issued last week to the engineering consultant will need to be redirected.
