New Tool for Cleaning XER Files – Meet ScheduleCleaner

Our team is thrilled to announce the launch of our newest software solution for cleaning data from XER project schedules.

The new ScheduleCleanerTM is a Windows application that acts as a cleaner for project files exported in the XER file format. The applications allows schedulers, planners, contractors and other project participants to remove or anonymize data values within XER project files.

We built ScheduleCleaner to help you share your project files 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

With ScheduleCleaner users can remove values for different project data categories in the XER project files such as costs, units, rates, POBS and more. In addition to removing functionality users can mask the intended meaning of specific project data, so that they are less clear and more difficult for others to understand.

In order to keep the project database clean ScheduleCleaner also has a feature that converts Global into Project data, keeping data unique without allowing pollution at source, when working with calendars and activity codes.

The application is designed to enable scheduling and planning personnel to take control of the project data within .xer files that is being shared within and outside of an organization, tailoring it to the specific needs of the different project stakeholders on the receiving end.

By incorporating ScheduleCleaner in your project you can:

  • Ensure schedule integrity and data security when sharing XER files
  • Save time spent on manually cleaning XER files
  • Avoid database pollution from unwanted data in XER files
  • Cut intermediary database maintenance and investment costs
