Abstract

Good project planning provides the basis for successful offshore well drilling projects. In this domain, planning occurs in two phases: an onshore phase develops a project plan; and an offshore phase implements the plan and tracks progress. The Performance Tracker applies a case-based reasoning approach to support the reuse of project plans. Cases comprise problem parts that store project initiation data, and solution parts that record the tasks and subtasks of actual plans. An initial evaluation shows that nearest neighbour retrieval identifies projects in which the retrieved tasks and subtasks are relevant for the new project. The Performance Tracker can be viewed as a recommender system in which recommendations are plans. Thus the data that is routinely captured as part of the performance tracking during offshore implementation is utilised as experiences.
