Abstract

In order to support the management of the offshore projects, HOPE (Hitachi Offshore Project Examiner) is developed based on some open source tools. HOPE can automatically collect the raw project data, organize them in the database, calculate the different data granularities, analyze the project indexes, detect the exception/release information according to some specified rules, and generate the HTML reports for the offshore projects. Furthermore, HOPE can be executed periodically according to the schedule specified by the user. To ensure HOPE adapt to the different users, an extensible plug-in architecture is designed. Both the data collection and the project diagnosis are implemented by the customizable plug-ins.
