The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) web-based bid letting
system contains information about open and closed state highway lettings.
The primary clients of the system are contractors interested in bidding on one
or more upcoming projects. The previous bid letting process was slow and
labor intensive because bids were all manually submitted by the contractors
and manually entered into the system by MoDOT staff.
MoDOT’s new Project Wise-based system has enabled a fully electronic
workflow; enhanced the timeliness and accuracy of bid letting information
available on the web; increased the productivity of the MoDOT staff;
eliminated contractor delivery service and travel expenses associated with
manual bid submissions; and reduced clerical labor and errors associated with
manual data entry.

Arup and Parsons Brinckerhoff formed the PBA Joint Venture to design
Australia’s largest transport infrastructure project – the AUD 5. 6 billion
Airport Link, Northern Busway ( Windsor to Kedron) and Airport Roundabout
Upgrade. Rapid mobilization of the project necessitated fast-track deployment
of Project Wise, which came online within three weeks of the project being
awarded in 2008.
Project Wise ultimately managed 1. 5 million documents with 4. 8 terabytes of
data accessed by over 2,000 users in 40 global locations. The system saved
time and costs in locating data ( 23,000 hours), controlling documents (USD
1 million), updating drawings (260 weeks), and traveling (USD 3. 6 million).
Other products utilized in the project included Project Wise, MicroStation, MX,
InRoads, gINT, and Structural Modeler.
