Southwest Airlines - Site-wide Management Solution (Completed)
Capstone consultants customized, configured, and deployed Microsoft Project Server to support an existing business process. This was a comprehensive, site-wide Enterprise Opportunity Management Initiative to which training and on-going support were provided.
Capstone not only worked with each "user community" to identify the existing detailed procedures that supported the established project management methodology, but identified the procedures that needed to be developed to meet the requirements of the established methodology. Capstone documented and integrated these procedures to structure one uniform set of procedures for each identified "user community." (e.g., templates, process flows, forms, checklists, etc.) To facilitate this initiative, Capstone performed a Best Practices Assessment, developed standard project templates and project guides.
Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA)/Parsons Brinckerhoff, Atlanta, Georgia - Capital Improvement Program Integration (Completed)
Approximate Value: $4 billion
MARTA, as part of its strategic and long range planning efforts, needed to assemble a database covering the condition of the assets in its current inventory. The resulting data is now being used to forecast capital funding needs and schedules for virtually all of MARTA's current assets. Capstone Planning and Control provided MARTA with a Capital Improvement Program (CIP) tool to help manage the complex nature of managing their projects within the fiscal restraints of the budget. The CIP is a process which integrates the capital program data into a series of comprehensive reports defining scope, schedule and budget for all of MARTA's capital projects. Through the use of Primavera, SureTrak and Microsoft Access, "what-if" analyses can be performed to compare funding requirements or schedules for different groups of capital projects.
