Large scale projects rely on software programs such as Primavera Expedition Professional to chart and plan the progress of the assignment. Primavera Expedition Professional is project management software that you can customize to generate reports that are regularly needed for a specific project. The project manager can use Primavera Expedition Professional to file submittals and track all change orders which occur throughout the project. These changes assist the project manager in evaluating the success of the project and the overall performance of the subcontractors.
Project managementProject management is the act of defining the project and its goals, setting guidelines and monitoring the progress of the contract being executed. The project manager, or PM, is responsible for meeting all the objectives of the project and overseeing involvement in the completion of the project. Primavera Expedition Professional allows the PM to monitor every aspect of the project as it progresses.
Project controlsProject controls cover the scheduling and cost management aspects of project management. Primavera Expedition Professional is widely used in project controls to anticipate and avoid delays or unnecessary spending.
Critical pathsThe activities listed on the critical path are the steps that must be completed within a specific time frame in order for the project to meet the projected completion date. Primavera Expedition Professional will adjust estimated time frames for a project with each change entered within the critical path.
SubmittalsThe contract submittal is prepared by the contractor and proposed to the person or company in charge of the project. The submittal includes drawings of the proposed project, estimates for the length of time and total cost and suggestions for the type of materials that will be used.
U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) provides an official explanation of submittal parameters. The GSA also provides samples and general submittal forms.
