CMiC Construction Platform

Whether it's in the field, or in the office, the CMiC Construction Platform is well suited for daily project management of construction projects. From a project inception, to project closeout, the tools and modules available will help keep your project running smoothly. All aspects of the construction process can be tracked and accessed for real time information. CMiC is a very robust program and we haven't explored all of the modules that are available to us at this point

Despite my frustrations with our team's specific setups, I have to say that JIRA is truly a wonderful project management tool for large teams and companies. If your team is very small, simpler software would probably meet your needs. But JIRA offers so many features, giving you granular control over every element of your board, and integrating seamlessly with Confluence and Salesforce. JIRA has become the hub of our product team.

Pros

CMiC Construction Platform

  • It integrates many aspects of project management into one location.
  • It produces easy to understand reports that incorporate financial aspects of the project so that costs and profit can be calculated in real-time rather than as a lagging indicator.
  • Document management is housed within the project, reducing the number of locations and the need for additional cloud storage to maintain project documentation.
  • CMiC customer assistance is prompt and helpful.

Jira Software

  • JIRA is an excellent tool to connect different teams and work styles in an efficient way, without being too specific for some of them.
  • It has a lot of features and settings to offer which really enable you to plan a task in a very detailed way.
  • Thanks to the different conditions of a task, the status can be tracked easily and everyone always knows who's the one who has to provide input.
Fabian Kuhn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

CMiC Construction Platform

  • Missing functionality on the drawing management side. See previous question.
  • Submittal module changes in R12 took away key functionality from the user. Specifically the Fabrication and Delivery fields. CMiC promises to bring this back but the process is too slow. Users have waited months to bring back functionality that was taken away.
  • Submittal module interface via collaborator and I/O email is not updating status correctly.
  • The mobile app does not allow users to change auto-generated checklist names. We have a checklist that is supposed to be used per room but the program auto-generates list names as ###-001, ###-002, etc. In the mobile app, there is no way to see a unique identifier in the list view so users have to open and close each record to find unique identifiers. There is a workaround with the web client but our field employees say its too cumbersome. They are abandoning using the web client checklists and going back to paper copies.
  • Specification extraction does not work.

  • Atlassian recently made a number of UI changes to both JIRA and Confluence. The Confluence changes negatively impact productivity by hampering what used to be a relatively straightforward navigation process. JIRA received an analogous set of changes; while less egregious, I find the new look increases my eye strain when trying to find needed information. New users may not have as much difficulty, but you should try it for yourself.
  • Atlassian offers both a Cloud and on-premise solution; the Cloud version doesn't offer many customizations and plugins that are present on the on-prem (server) version.
  • The amount of customization offered by JIRA is a blessing and a curse. Generally speaking, it's important to keep things as simple as possible; avoid adding custom fields or super involved workflows as much as possible (though the default workflow doesn't work in most situations based upon my experience).
  • You'll need to nominate someone in your organization to own the JIRA effort -- this person should have a reasonable knowledge of JIRA administration but also have the ability to fairly present options and solutions as issues arise. If you don't have someone in this org but opt for a committee of sorts your instance can become a true mess and will negatively impact productivity.

I like the functionality of CMiC; however, there are always going to be "opportunities" that we encounter to get corrected

I do not make decisions at my new company, so it's out of my hands. I will say that we're in dire need of a new Project Tracking suite, but I'm not sure how interested they'd be in building something from the ground up. But, if discussions turn to blowing up our current solution and going in another direction, I will be recommending JIRA, and offering to take lead in it's implementation.

JIRA's UI is very difficult to navigate. It is almost impossible to find things. I find myself just using the address bar and putting in the ID numbers as I can't find what I need anywhere else. There is no one place to do tasks but many and many ways to get there and this causes confusion.

It's a cumbersome platform that doesn't support plans and specs in a way utilized by most construction companies. There is no way to download a specific set (or specifically selected number) of individual drawings sheets, it doesn't package drawings in sets, the Specs function (at least as far as we've been set up for) isn't a function as much as it is a documents folder, uploading is a tedious process that gains no benefit.

A 10 rating is only apt for the product we are using. It has ticked all boxes like issue tracking, project management and so on. The application with its availability on mobile devices as well has also added more to the rating of 10.

Lots of confusion between sales and implementation regarding what was included and not included...the security encountered a "bug" and made it extremely difficult to set up roles and individual responsibilities

Take your time implementing Jira. Make sure you understand how you want to handle your projects and workflows. Investing more time in the implementation can pay off in a long run. It basically took us 5 days to define and implement correctly, but that meant smooth sailing later on.

Alternatives Considered

CMiC Construction Platform

CMiC was the software currently in use when I joined Pence. I've used Prolog, Constructware, and Procore. All seem to have their advantages and disadvantages. If CMiC was able to mirror the user interface of Procore then this software could be amazing. A program should be very intuitive. CMiC has improved greatly over the years from the last time I used it but it's still very esoteric.

JIRA support has been incredibly helpful with any issues that have come up, from technical glitches (few and far between) and increasing user knowledge of the capability of JIRA. The capabilities of JIRA are endless and can be adapted to fit nearly any organizations individual needs. JIRA also has a vast capability to integrate with a variety of software products used throughout many different companies.

Return on Investment

CMiC Construction Platform

  • Better project visibility, surely. I can step into a former project and see how well/poorly it was run.
  • Forecasting underway - nearly complete with year 2.
  • Cost status tracking - this has been valuable, especially when figuring out how much of a liquid budget is left over.

  • As a product manager I needed to make sure that all teams were aware of priority and that new items went through triage and were accounted for in a timely manner. JIRA took us away from the headache of spreadsheets and daily meetings, to one transparent system with real time dashboards that required no meetings. People could just do their work because they knew what was the next most important item. This must have saved hundreds of thousands of hours over the years.
