The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works selected Simpson & Simpson to document the Project Controls System (PCS) used by the Capital Projects Branch to manage construction of County buildings and infrastructure projects.  The PCS consists of numerous individual component systems developed by in-house staff over the last 20 years.  The recently completed project required development of a custom program to extract data from the various applications and a systematic process to gather information from the application developers and system administrators.  The findings of this effort will help Public Works decide whether to build a new PCS or enhance the existing system for future project needs.
