An award for ITER planning and scheduling

Early November, the ITER Organization was recognized for the "innovative and forward-looking" digital management of its schedule by Oracle, whose Primavera software tool is used to plan and track approximately 270,000 activities.

Senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Construction and Engineering, Mark Webster, presents ITER Scheduling Responsible Officer Sebastien König with the award.
Since 2016, the Oracle Construction and Engineering Excellence Awards have celebrated project teams and individuals around the world that have improved the way they manage and deliver projects through digital transformation.

"The Oracle Construction and Engineering Excellence Awards winners represent organizations of all sizes that have demonstrated remarkable success from the digital transformation of their businesses across the project and asset lifecycle," said Mark Webster, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Construction and Engineering.

The ITER Project Control Office uses Oracle's Primavera to standardize the planning and scheduling processes and best practices across the project, including the Domestic Agencies and contractors, with all parties using the same activity-naming convention, codes, work breakdown structure and calendars. ITER schedulers are able to integrate schedules for approximately 270,000 activities across the project within three days of receiving data, and provide standardized reports for all stakeholders.

"From significant productivity gains, to better payment outcomes across the supply chain, to unlocking project intelligence for smarter decision making, the improvements realized by these organizations underscore their leadership in driving project delivery forward, with benefits that extend to all stakeholders. We congratulate the honourees and are thrilled to recognize their accomplishments."

The award was presented to ITER Scheduling Responsible Officer Sebastien König on 5 November, during the Oracle Future of Projects 2019 event at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
