WITH SMART PROJECT DELIVERY

Client
clien-ntpc

It would be India’s first ultra-super critical thermal power plant. NTPC had four decades of experience delivering similar projects. Their teams were among the best anywhere. They still faced tough challenges. How to line up so many internal and external partners? How to avoid expensive delays?

MAJOR CHALLENGES

Over the course of the project the L&T team faced down a series of major challenges, from cyclones to a vendor bankruptcy. And they overcame them all.

1
Scale and Complexity

Urgent need to simplify schedules given the multitude of vendors, parts, drawings, and tasks.

2
Many External Stakeholders

The project involved over 30 large contractors, multiple sub-contractors, and vendors.

3
Multiple Tracking Systems

Multiple data tracking systems meant teams had no single version of the truth, limiting smart, proactive steps to reduce delays.

4
Backward Looking Reports

Since traditional systems showed what already happened, management was always reacting to emerging situations.

5
Last Minute Surprises

Without early warning signals, and a true picture of reality, teams often got late-breaking bad news, causing avoidable delays.

COLD HARD FACT

Over $4 billion is spent on project management software annually. And still over 90% of projects are late.

Late projects cost more. Late projects shake the confidence and trust of investors and the public. We’re helping to change all that.
