Clean MPP Files

Tools that Help Securely Share Confidential and Sensitive Data in Project Files

When project information is communicated with project stakeholders there is often the need to limit access to specific data for certain viewers.

When working with multiple contractors on a project, not all contractors necessarily need to see data such as material costs or expenses of an activity that they are not performing which can be found in the XER or XML schedule.

John from the PMO office, who receives the project plan to check and report on specific Activity progress, does not necessarily need to know the Labour costs or salary details of his colleagues contained within an .mpp file.

To ensure the privacy and the confidentiality of sensitive data that lies inside your project files, we have created our Cleaning Tools, which will allow you to remove or anonymize specific categories of data values within your project schedules (.xer & .xml files) and project plans (.mpp files).

Case: Remove All Pricing for Resources

This example illustrates the general principle of how ScheduleCleanerTM  works. The images represent screenshots made in ScheduleReader before and after the file was "cleaned" with ScheduleCleaner. By following these simple steps, users can quickly remove data such as all "Pricing for Resources.

After Cleaning the File


The same principle applies when cleaning other data categories such as costs, units, project progress, POBS data and more.

How Does it Work?

ScheduleCleanerTM produces a filtered copy of the original XER file, without damaging the schedule integrity and logic.

This principle ensures that the original file remains unchanged and the end-user receiving the filtered copy of the project has access only to information that the owner has allowed to remain in the filtered version of the schedule.
