Benefits of the XENA Primavera Configuration Utility Tools

  • Project Codes
  • Resource Codes
  • Calendars UDF Types (User Defined Fields)
  • UOM (Units of Measure)

XENA Conversion Templates

A library of templates can be built to store conversion settings. Template conversion setting can be selected in the following tabs:

  • General
  • Activity Codes
  • Project Codes
  • Resource Codes
  • Calendars
  • UDF Types
  • UOM

The General tab displays the Primavera version of the original XER file. A new Primavera version may be selected for the output (to match the Primavera version you are using). A prefix can be automatically applies to any of the code structures.

The additional tabs display code values from the original XER file and allow users to map these codes to the desired production database codes or to rename the codes in the revised XER file. Other features allow the ability to change activity codes from Global to Project level.

Conversion templates may be re-used. This useful feature means consistent handling of XER files repeatedly from the same source, such as when applying weekly updates from a contractor.
