Project Management Software Project Insight Chosen by Flare Industries
Pollution Control Case Study
Sep. 8, 2011 03:30 PM
Since 1984, Flare Industries has been an industry leader, providing quality flare systems, thermal oxidizers and ignition systems that help to control pollution. The innovative equipment the company manufactures provides optimum performance in meeting local environmental regulations or protecting a company's plant operations. Project Insight (www.projectinsight.net), online project management software, supports Flare Industries' Project Controls Manager in implementing the design and production of the company's equipment.
Flare Industries' project management team consists of over 30 resources that work on approximately 80 active projects at any given time. Before, team members were working on their own schedules and managing their own functional areas individually, leaving the Project Controls Manager with zero visibility. Prior to using Project Insight, the project team relied on a linear program rather than a deliberate solution that would integrate and unify the company's processes.
A couple project managers are Project Management Professional (PMI) certified, so it was important to find a solution which was compliant with the Project Management Institute's (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). The Project Controls Manager and the project managers looked for a solution that would:
- Provide a single, integrated project management software that gives visibility to all stakeholders into how all team resources are managing their tasks
- Give managers individual access and control of their projects
- Deliver data for analysis, performance measurement and reports
Following the close evaluation of several different project management solutions to unify the company's processes and provide visibility, Flare Industries signed on with Project Insight. The Project Controls Manager says, "Prior to using Project Insight, there was a strictly linear process, where each project was handled by one person, and nobody else had input into this system or any access into the data. There was no analysis or measurement available." With the help of Project Insight's ability to capture information and display in reports, tracking performance is now possible.
