RPCuk has, since 1992, acquired a reputation for delivering high quality Oracle Primavera product expertise and solutions for many organisations, from SMEs to Blue Chip enterprises, in the Engineering and Construction, Aerospace, Defence, Energy, Infrastructure, Nuclear, Oil and Gas, Transport and Utilities industries in the UK, Europe and Africa. The consultancy focus areas for which we are mainly recognised are...
A typical Oracle Primavera product implementation lead by RPCuk comprises...
Oracle Primavera tools are not "plug 'n' play" software products and successful deployments require deep product knowledge and competence. The expertise of our specialists has been assessed by Oracle, resulting in RPCuk achieving Oracle Primavera Unifier Cloud Services and Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM Specializations.
Our certified Oracle Primavera specialists have evolved a proven approach that draws from their experiences of deploying Oracle Primavera products in many organisations across a variety of industries. This has led to RPCuk being recognised by the award of Oracle Specializations in Aerospace and Defense, Travel and Transportation, Utilities, Engineering and Construction and Professional Services.
Broadly, this comprises 6 steps which we tailor to suit your needs and minimise risk...
Discovery. We gather and analyse information about implementation objectives and scope, success criteria, resources, constraints, processes, interfaces and change impact.
Solution Design. We produce, and agree with you, a design specification covering software installation, product configuration and customisation, data structures, performance reporting, operational procedures and interfaces with other systems.
Build. We complete software server installation and construct and test customised prototype solutions, often adopting an agile approach and comprising a series of 'sprints', that conform to the design specification, using your data.
Pilot Trial. We conduct a user acceptance trial using a representative subset of your production data and mix of your users and assess process fit.
Deployment. We extend the pilot trial to encompass all users, including installing software on client PCs, comprehensive training, data migration and 'go live' support.
Closure. We review the implementation programme with you to confirm that all objectives have been achieved, success criteria have been met and to identify further requirements.
Throughout the programme we communicate progress and highlight issues to be addressed and, crucially, endeavour to transfer knowledge to your personnel as much as is practically feasible.
RPCuk recommends a phased approach to Oracle Primavera product implementations as the most appropriate and attractive strategy...
funding approval is sought or confirmed at each logical checkpoint, limiting, at each stage, the financial exposure and risk to which you are exposed
completion of each phase represents a checkpoint which allows you to review progress, refine requirements and change direction (and implementation partner), if warranted
a phased approach offers the opportunity for your personnel to develop incremental familiarity with the capabilities of the Oracle Primavera software and for RPCuk to acquire a deeper understanding of your processes, enabling us to be able to contribute as productively as possible and add value
limiting the scope of each phase provides the opportunity for key objectives to be delivered in the shortest timescale and, by extension, offers the prospect of showing quick investment returns via a succession of achievements
a phased approach is the most effective option for the management and control of change
a series of regular successes builds confidence
We believe that client personnel participation throughout an engagement is vital to a successful outcome...
whilst RPCuk experts can bring to bear valuable experience and knowledge, they will not have as deep an understanding of an organisation and its unique operational characteristics as your own personnel
no matter how well designed and built or how relevant, unlocking the potential that a solution can offer can be compromised if your personnel do not identify with, accept and take ownership of the solution
A team approach, which harmonises the Oracle Primavera product expertise provided by RPCuk Certified Specialists with a deep understanding of the business and operational needs of an organisation supplied by your personnel, offers the most fertile environment for developing and introducing a successful solution.
Throughout an engagement, RPCuk consultants deliver essential knowledge transfer to enable effective collaboration during solution development and, crucially, to empower all users to fully exploit the solution and, by extension, to facilitate successful benefits realisation.
An Oracle Primavera product implementation is something we do with you, not to you!
