State DOT Experiences with Primavera P6 Project Management Software

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is considering various project management software applications for use in a range of highway construction activities. One of the applications under consideration is Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management software. The product is now available through Oracle, which acquired Primavera Software Inc. in October 2008. CTC & Associated was asked to survey several state DOTs currently using this application to gather preliminary information about its potential applicability to Mn/DOT. CTC approached Oracle to identify states using Primavera P6. The Oracle representative CTC spoke with thought that the following 13 states were using P6: Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia and Washington. CTC queried DOT research directors for the names of Primavera managers CTC could interview and was able to identify appropriate individuals in the following state DOTs: Connecticut, Florida, New York, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Washington. CTC also identified and interviewed the Primavera manager for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. Questions were posed, based on input from the Mn/DOT team that is investigating the project management applications. Names and contact information for interviewees are included in the Interview Responses section of this Transportation Research Synthesis.
