Cyon Research Study Analyzes Web-based Project Management Implementation at Major Transportation Agency

‘Project Discipline’ a Key Factor for Chicago Transit Authority Project

Bethesda, MD, August 26, 2002. Cyon Research Corporation, a leader in market knowledge for the CAD, AEC and PLM markets, today issued a white paper analyzing the implementation of a web-based project management system at the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA). This white paper is available free-of-charge via Cyon’s web resource.

The paper, titled "Keys to Success in Web-based Project Management: Lessons Learned from the Chicago Transit Authority Capital Improvement Program," studies the aims, targets and requirements set out by the CTA at the beginning of a $2.1 billion capital improvement project. This white paper identifies the dynamics that were instrumental in the implementation of web-based project management technology throughout the entire operation. It also closely studies the impact of key consultants, including Kristine Fallon Associates, which managed the process of identifying, implementing and managing the project management technology for the CTA.

"Success in the implementation of Web-based project management is achievable, as the CTA has demonstrated," stated Dr. Orr, vice president and chief visionary, Cyon Research. "But it requires excellent management and good technology -- and project discipline that is most easily driven by the owner."
