The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (LACMTA) had five projects in process at the same time. These projects involved building multiple heavy and light rail transit lines. Each project had separate project managers and construction management consultants. They were each responsible for project tracking and monthly status reporting.  LACMTA decided change the method of monthly status reporting to enhance the quality and timeliness of the status reports. An executive reporting system (ERS) was developed. “This system provides user friendly and timely electronic access to a broad spectrum of project status data in support of the $8 billion metro rail construction program.” (Christiansen 1997) The executive reporting system takes data and constructs a complete status report or sectional status reports that gives an executive summary, detail financial information, and schedule data for each or all projects. .“The ERS presenter module-the original ERS provides online access to data and analysis for all key projects status and progress indicators.” (Christiansen 1997)  ERS has reduced the workflow and paperwork as well as reduce production cost occurred from producing and printing status reports from each project manager and construction management consultants. The executive reporting system gives a better analysis of projects status and helps executives and management make better decisions. The executive reporting system was successful because it saved the company $30,000-$40,000 monthly and decreased production time by stopping the time devouring task that was necessary to compose and print massive status reports.

Companies can learn from this example and implement executive reporting system (ERS) that takes data and constructs a complete status report or sectional status reports that gives an executive summary, detail financial information, and schedule data for each or all projects.
