Thumbprint CPM for Corporate Owners and the AEC Industry
Thumbprint CPM enables companies to share
knowledge about permits, criteria and other building
information instantly across programs. With
Thumbprint CPM, you can build project plans without the use
of static templates and view project schedules that reflect
real-world changing project conditions.
Let’s look at a common AEC/Corporate
Owners scenario where Thumbprint CPM will capture, share,
retain, and apply project and process knowledge to add to
your company's program intelligence.
Your company is building 40 new grocery stores in
the Southeast this year alone. The program manager is
keeping a high level pulse on each of the projects and trying
to manage the overall schedules. A project manager on
one of the projects runs into a new permitting requirement
that becomes applicable if stores are within 100 miles of the
Chattahoochee River. He alerts the program manager and
they decide on the process they'll take to obtain the
In the past, each time a project manager
encountered this same requirement the same dialogue and
process would be repeated with the program manager.
However, because several of the new stores will encounter the
same permitting requirement in the future, the program
manager simply enters the new condition under which the permit
applies with the relevant documentation into Thumbprint CPM.
The learning knowledgebase now understands what is
necessary to resolve the permit requirements (project
knowledge). The learning knowledgebase also understands
the conditions under which it will automatically "push" this
permit information to each project manager when it becomes
relevant to their own projects (process knowledge). This
permit information includes the required forms, documents and
criteria needed to submit the permit.
Thus, knowledge captured on one project can be
appropriately applied to both concurrent and future projects,
reducing time and cost. This project and process
knowledge is immediately available to your entire company
through Thumbprint CPM via the Internet. In the future,
if conditions for the permitting process change, the learning
knowledgebase can be modified on the fly. Essentially,
Thumbprint CPM becomes smarter about your projects and
processes as it is used.
