Thinking about Project Controls Expo?

Project Controls ExpoThe 2013 Project Controls Expo is taking place at Twickenham in southwest London on Wednesday 13 November. As the name suggests, the event is focused on project management and control, but its remit isn’t industry-specific – it reaches across a broad range of sectors including oil and gas, aerospace, rail and other transport, pharmaceutical, infrastructure and, of course, construction. The Expo includes a conference and exhibition, helping to raise both practical and theoretical awareness of processes, tools and techniques. Of course, CONJECT has its own Project Control product, but the event is interesting in its own right too. For example, we are looking forward to:

  • David Birch’s presentation on “Practical use of earned value for real-time forecasting”
  • “Considerations for implementing a global project controls model”, by Jonathan Crone, and
  • a case study: “How using people, processes and systems together can bring world class project controls to your project”, by Logikal

CONJECT people will be exhibiting there. Among other things, we will be showcasing our Earned Value Management (EVM) functionality –  and we have a limited number of free tickets (face value £50) to give away to potential attendees. To claim your free ticket register your details here, and when you visit the show, please pop by and say hello.

EVM

For those unfamiliar with the term, EVM is a project management technique for measuring project performance and progress. It addresses the classic construction concerns of quality, time and cost, combining measurements of project scope, schedule and costs. It can deliver accurate forecasts of project performance problems, including the impact of contract disputes. CONJECT Project Control EVM capabilities provide greater certainty at multiple levels: across programmes, projects and individual work packages.
