Weyerhaeuser Project wins PMI
March, 2002 -- The Puget Sound Chapter of
the Project Management Institute (PMI) sponsors an annual "Project of
the Year" award for its members. Weyerhaeuser's Western Log
System project has won the PMI Award for projects completed in 2001.
This project implemented log accounting systems for financial transactions,
production accountability and inventory control for the Western Timberlands
Group. CT3's Log Management System provided the core functionality for
the new infrastructure. Indeed, the implementation of CT3's System
replaced the essential functionality of the legacy system and incorporated
33 new business standardization practices that helped to streamline
accounting processes and reduce costs. The project closed on time and
ten percent under budget. As a member of the project team, CT3 is
pleased to share this recognition with the Western Log System project team
for the completion of this complex and successful project.
The PMI Award was presented at the March 11th meeting of PMI's Puget
Sound Chapter to Joe Kresse, Weyerhaeuser project manager. As a
regional winner, the Western Log System project is now in competition for
the national PMI Project of the Year award. The Project Management
Institute is the world's leading professional project management association,
supporting over 86,000 members in 125 countries. PMI's most
prestigious award, the PMI Project of the Year, is awarded to an outstanding
project and the project team involved, for superior performance and
execution of exemplary project management.
Weyerhaeuser's Western Timberlands Group is now using CT3's Log
Management System to manage the log production activities on approximately 2
million acres of timberland in Oregon and Washington, log procurement
activities for 4 sawmills and a log merchandising operation, and to maintain
log inventories at several export facilities.
