ENTERPRISE INTEGRATION

Project Summary

Our client operates the world’s largest nuclear generating station, which supplies nearly 30% of all generation for Ontario, Canada.  In 2015 they entered into a long-term agreement to provide 6,400 megawatts of electricity supply to the province through 2064 - a mandate so critical and demanding that a step-change in the enterprise approach to project delivery was needed. The objective was to provide integrated enterprise solutions to optimize project planning and delivery for the largest clean energy infrastructure project in Canada.   

Our Solution

Like many large-scale energy operators, our client’s continued safe and sustainable operation depends on the successful planning and execution of their Life Cycle Asset Management Programs.  Critical data is developed during the project lifecycle, and proper portfolio management means integrating Projects and Programs within the Portfolio and integrating that Portfolio with the multiple needs and demands of the Enterprise. Modus Project Services was deployed as a unique project integration services provider to integrate People, Process, Tools, and Methodologies to achieve our client’s goals. In order to deliver these mission critical objectives, Modus worked directly with the client to understand their specific business objectives, stakeholders requirements, organizational constraints and cultural considerations to customize a solution that works in lock-step with their business. To achieve this, we delivered the following integrated enterprise-level products:

  • Portfolio Management Capability
