CONNECTINg PROJECT TEAmS
mott macDonald Limited
projectwise rollout in India
mott macDonald India is a multidisciplinary management and engineering
consultancy with offices nationwide. multiple projects run in parallel, making
it difficult to control costs. Using F Tp servers and network drives for document
control caused problems with access, archiving, and security, and team
members routinely copied files onto local drives, creating multiple versions.
To resolve these issues, mott macDonald performed a pilot test of project Wise
on two projects. project Wise Integration Server was deployed in the chennai
office, and caching servers were setup at the noida and Bangalore offices.
project Wise eliminated the problems and allowed users from multiple offices
to work as one virtual team. Time savings resulted in faster project delivery,
resulting in a 10 percent project cost reduction.
network rail owns, runs, maintains, and develops Britain’s tracks, signaling
systems, 18 key stations, and more than 40,000 bridges, viaducts, and tunnels.
To meet rapidly growing demand, network rail developed a delivery plan for a
£ 10 billion program from 2009 to 2014. Tough efficiency targets set by the U.K.
rail regulator require £ 4. 1 billion in savings during this same period.

The design-to-cost project aims to contribute £ 100 million in savings by
eliminating repetitive design, avoiding over-specification, and reducing
implementation time. A suite of standard designs will be accessible through
the Standard Design catalogue (SDc) hosted by project Wise. The project Wise-managed environment will ensure that the SDc is up to date for its 4,000+
users, lowering network rail’s cost to design and deliver.
