Due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel all face-to-face events until September. Take a look at our Events Calendar for webinar alternatives and online learning options!

Graeme McNaught from Selex & Guy Spaven from SAP will be running two interactive sessions at this SIG.

Starting with the Data Dive.

We all use the data structures in PS (WBS Elements, Network Activities, Milestones etc)to represent our real-world projects, but we probably all use them differently, to represent different things, different levels of detail etc. In this session Selex will present how they structure projects in PS. Guy from SAP will present all the possible data elements and their “classical” usage.

We’d really like you to share how you structure your projects in PS. If possible, please come with a few slides showing how you structure your projects (diagrams, screenshots etc) and give us 5-10 minutes overview. You can email if you would like any advice or assistance on preparing this.

In the second session we will focus on Reporting Round-up.

Historically getting data out of PS in anything other than the standard tabular reports has been quite challenging. Different people have tackled it in different ways: BW, ABAP, Excel, Third Party tools.  Selex will present how they report PS data. Guy from SAP will give a short overview of the current reporting options including Lumira and HANA.

Once again we’d like to you to share with us a few slides and a few minutes on how you’ve tackled this problem.

Remember without your participation and engagement the interactive sessions cannot run as effectively and we would really like you to be involved.

During the day there will be an opportunity to take part in a interactive demonstration of Selex ES’s 3D Vitrual Environment capabilities; a fully immersive and interactive 3D modelling facility providing effective visual communication to multi discipline teams and projects. The Virtual Environment enables Engineering CAD data to quickly be combined with generic 3D data to set the operating context. In real time Selex project teams can develop products and systems making changes as they are discussed prior to physical hardware being built. The facility enables early engagement with customers to support requirement definition and interpretation improving customer confidence and giving opportunity for influence earlier in the project lifecycle.

A number of the products that are designed and manufactured on the Basildon site will also be on display during the day, including their vehicle situational awareness system, the Enforcer Remote Controlled Weapons Station as well as other thermal imaging solutions.
