CONNECTINg PROJECT TEAmS
Los Angeles Department of water and Power
lAdwp projectwise Implementation
The los Angeles Department of Water and
power (l ADWp) maintained multiple drawing
management systems, including file storage on
Windows servers and drawing data and historical
information in oracle databases, along with
linux-based file security and a Visual Basic drawing
number generator. l ADWp chose project Wise to
replace the multiple homegrown systems.
The implementation project involved integrating
legacy information and merging hundreds of
thousands of files in various formats into one system.
l ADWp used the project Wise Software Development
Kit to customize the system in house. Implementing
project Wise has reduced the time spent searching
for files in half, cut plotting time by 40 percent, and
eliminated the need for a dedicated resource to
maintain and support the legacy systems.
project Wise allows geospatial searches of maps,
drawings, and documents in one repository.
Workflow, reference file, and workspace
management ensure continuity and standards
compliance. Document attributes are updated in
one program and secure check-in and check-out
minimizes lost work and prevents accidental file
deletion. Access permission management and audit
trails improve safety.
