Implementation

From October 2007 to March 2009

the Louisiana DOTD Worked on Implementing

  • CES – Cost Estimation

  • BAMS\DSS – Bid Analysis

  • Preconstruction


Implementation

  • Did it go as smooth as butter?

  • Did we have are ups and downs?

  • Has the work finished?


Major Challenges

  • Data Conversion & Migration

  • Master Pay Item File

  • Training


Data Conversion & Migration

  • Legacy System: BIDS

  • What data to convert?

    • Project Plan: Convert five years of data.

    • Reality: Converted all projects with 2000 and 2006 Spec Years.

  • Keeping systems synchronized.

  • Stimulus Projects


Master Pay Item File

  • BIDS and Specialty Items

  • SiteManager Materials

  • Adjusting to Change

    • Major Issue

    • Everyone had their own ideas.

    • No one wanted to let go of that ability (from Design to Construction)

  • A consensus was obtained.

    • 2008 Spec Year was created based off of the 2006 Spec Book


Training

  • Underestimated

    • Headquarters (6 main offices)

    • Districts (9 offices)

    • Only 5 days of Preconstruction training scheduled

  • Developed a Strategy


Training Strategy

  • We identify a “System Expert(s)” from each office.

  • Formally trained the System Experts

  • Open the Trns•port Training and Assistance Center

    • At Headquarters

    • 5 weeks over 3 month period

    • Manned by InfoTech

  • Conducted District “Road Shows”

Remaining Issues

    • SiteManager

    • Expedite

    • BAMS\DSS

  • The Problem

    • Carriage Returns\Line Feed
