Fast, Simple & Automated XER File Control

ScheduleCleanerTM is a desktop application for Windows, which allows project schedulers, planners, managers, and other users to remove, convert or anonymize sensitive or confidential data within XER and XML project files.

We built ScheduleCleanerTM to help project teams share project data with confidence because we know that some of the major concerns when sharing schedule data are:

  • Sensitive data within project schedules
  • Redundant and repetitive steps when data is removed manually  
  • Loss of information during schedule modification

Secure Data Communication on All Levels

ScheduleCleanerTM is designed to enable scheduling and planning personnel to take control of the project data within XER & XML project files by quickly tailoring it to the specific needs of the different project stakeholders before sharing it within or outside of the organization.

General use cases apply to "cleaning" a project file from a certain type of sensitive project data values and preparing the file for:

  • Import to a P6 database, when project file is received from others
  • Further sharing with a various project stakeholder

Benefits include:

  •   Keeping sensitive data confidential when sharing XER and XML files
  •   Saving time spent on manually cleaning project files
  •   No database pollution with unwanted Global data
  •   Eliminates intermediary database maintenance & investment costs

Removal of project data

Remove values for different data categories in .xer and .xml schedules exported from Primavera® P6® such as costs, units, rates, expenses, POBS and more.


Masking of project data

Intentional obscuring/masking of the intended meaning of specific project data, so that they are less clear and more difficult for others to understand.


Add Prefix/Suffix to
project data

Add prefix or suffix to the values of different project data.


Change Global into
Project data

Changing global data into project data refers to keeping data unique for specific projects, without allowing pollution at the source, specifically when working with Calendars and Activity Codes.

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.
