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 Project.
Carlos Noriega, Plant Engineering Manager explained why they chose Powerproject over other software: “We considered several alternatives before choosing Powerproject, including Primavera and MS Project. The cost of Primavera is very high and MS Project was not right for us, because it uses a hosted platform for its database. With Powerproject, the database stays within our own IT system. Plus, the flexible license options allow us to share Powerproject among our workstations and teams without purchasing lots more licences.” Read the full case study here.
