Fast, Simple & Automated XER File Control

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

  • Sensitive project data within XER files
  • Redundant and repetitive steps when data is removed manually  
  • Loss of information when modifying XER

Secure Data Communication on All Levels

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

General use case applies to "cleaning" an XER file from a certain type of sensitive project data values before:

  • Uploading an XER file to a database when received from others
  • Sharing an XER schedule data with a certain project stakeholder

Benefits include:

  • Data confidentiality when sharing XER files
  • Time savings - time spent on manually cleaning XER files
  • No database pollution with unwanted data from incoming XER files
  • No intermediary database maintenance and investment costs

Removal of project data

Remove values for different data categories in the Primavera® P6® .xer project files 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 data into
Project data

Changing global data into project data refers to keeping data unique for a specific project, without allowing pollution of data at source, specifically when working with calendars and activity codes.

Case Example: Clearing the Pricing for Resources

This example illustrates the general principle of how ScheduleCleanerTM  works. By following these simple steps, users can quickly remove data such as all "Pricing for Resources. The same principle applies when cleaning other data categories such as: costs, units, project progress, POBS data and more.
