CHANGE MANAGEMENT PROCESS
Comprehensive Change Management
Nothing is as predictable as the fact that changes occur throughout a construction project. Tracking, documenting, negotiating, getting paid, and making payments for changes are also part of the job.
Figure 1: Capture, record and document the entire change process.
Change Management Workflow Processing
Controlling changes involves notifying and coordinating affected project participants as well as containing the costs and schedule for the project. Primavera Contract Management provides an overview of each change—from the estimate phase to final approval—for both budgeted and committed costs. Because the change process in a project differs with the nature of the change and the company’s process for recording and tracking changes, the change management functionality lets you create a customized workflow to meet the change management needs of your company.
Primavera Contract Management gives you a better way to track the change process, create supporting documentation, and analyze the financial and schedule effects a change may have at any stage in the negotiation process.
Flexible Approval Processing
Primavera Contract Management offers two types of approval processing: a standard process when simple approval is required based on the document’s To and From vendors, and a configurable workflow routing process. Primavera Contract Management’s document routing process is designed to be flexible enough to be compatible with an organization’s standard business processes yet easy enough to use that companies can be up and running quickly.
Figure 2: Anyone can approve in this workflow process, in which all reviewers receive notification that a document requires review and approval. After the first reviewer approves the document, the document status is changed to approved.
Figure 3: All must approve in this workflow process, in which all reviewers receive notification that a document requires their review and approval. After all document reviewers approve the document, the document status is changed to approved.
Figure 4: In this linear approval workflow process, reviewers work linearly. Reviewer 1 must review and approve, and then reviewer 2 receives notification that it’s time to review and approve. After all document reviewers approve the document, the document status is changed to approved.
