Southern Peru Copper Corporation Mines for New Project Management Efficiencies with Powerproject
Southern Peru Copper Corporation is part of the US-based mining and metallurgical group SCC, which generates annual revenues in excess of $6billion around the world.
The Peru arm is the country’s largest producer of copper, amongst other outputs.
With hundreds of mining projects in simultaneous operation across a large geography, SPCC wished to improve its business and project visibility.
It chose Powerproject Enterprise from Elecosoft to consolidate the planning and management of projects, enable collaboration by its team of coordinators, and replace disparate tools in use, including Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Project.
A team of consultants from Elecosoft’s regional partner APP Consultoría de Gestión de Proyectos SL, based in Spain, with local partner, Metacontrol Ingenieros SAC, supported SPCC to implement Powerproject in less than ten days.
In addition to this, the team also developed a business intelligence report that could be accessed by managers in different locations, which was completed in under a month.
Using Powerproject the team has been able to standardise task weightings create ‘Task Pools’ of similar networks of tasks, to create templates.
The Plant Engineering coordinators are now able to report physical S curves directly out of Powerproject without manually loading information into a spreadsheet each time.
SPCC continues to work with its contractors to promote the benefits of changing to Powerproject, and Elecosoft’s local partner is doing all it can to help.
