Key Components of Oracle Construction Management Software

Oracle Construction and Engineering software offers a fully integrated suite of project management solutions to help contractors, owners, and project teams collaborate effectively, mitigate risk, and streamline project planning, delivery, execution, and performance.

Here’s a closer look at the core products included in the Oracle Engineering and Construction suite:

Smart Construction Platform

By combining a common data environment and partner ecosystem with industry-trusted applications, the Oracle Smart Construction Platform enables project owners and delivery teams to collaborate and continuously innovate core business processes.

The Smart Construction Platform also enables greater control over project plans and teams by streamlining critical activities, aligning resource allocation to actual (not predicted) demand, and empowering users to make proactive, data-driven decisions.

Capital Program Management

Oracle Capital Program Management enables organizations to boost returns by managing project cost, scope, and risk in a centralized platform and leveraging intelligent capital portfolios to improve visibility and control over mission-critical project data.

With complete process configurability and long-range portfolio planning and forecasting capabilities, the Capital Program Management solution simplifies the transition from project planning to execution and standardizes how projects are governed, enabling better asset maintenance and management.

Construction Payment Management

The Construction Payment Management platform streamlines core billing and payment processing operations, enabling organizations to ensure timely payments, enforce effective compliance controls, and improve visibility into downstream payments.

Tools like Oracle Textura Payment Management also centralize compliance documents and maintain audit trails for payment documents, user actions, and electronic signatures to mitigate risk, gain an enterprise-wide view of payment and task statuses, and improve overall process control.

Construction Project Management

Oracle Construction Project Management offers intuitive scheduling, collaboration, and project control capabilities to connect teams and initiatives across the project lifecycle.

With streamlined preconstruction processes, real-time documents, and intelligent collaboration tools, organizations can build the right project team for every job and improve coordination between office and field teams.

Close collaboration across project teams and a unique data model that eliminations communication barriers also enable greater productivity, improve visibility into cost impacts from organizational change, and streamline payment management.

The Data and Intelligence platform enables users to build more effectively, limit project delays, and continually assess and address potential risks by enabling proactive decision-making.

The Oracle Construction Intelligence Cloud offers a full suite of products designed to help customers unlock the power of their existing business data and make decisions that reduce the risk of critical safety, scheduling, and project management issues.

  • Analytics: Analyze project data from Oracle Smart Construction Platform and other sources in a unified platform to drive better decision-making and mitigate risk.
  • Advisor: Utilize predictive intelligence tools and historical project data to identify hidden risks and address potential issues proactively.
  • Newmetrix: Leverage the power of AI to predict, measure, and monitor safety incidents and emphasize support for at-risk projects.
