Nowadays, large cities, such as Jeddah, have a significant number of projects in various locations. As a result, there is an urgent need to implement a comprehensive and completely integrated Project Management Solution (using the Primavera Enterprise suite) that includes all projects currently under construction or newly awarded in a single centralized database. The integration of Primavera data in the spatial database is required in this context. This proposed solution will assist Stakeholders in properly allocating staff to mitigate the risks predicted to complete the project on time and within the estimated budget. In this sense, the significance of this research, which is aimed at discovering a cutting-edge IT solution that automates all Enterprise Project Management System procedures and formalities and offers linkage to geographic information systems programs ArcGIS to transform conventional project management data output and reports into information within a geographic/location context. Thus, visualizing project management output like linear/Gantt charts and/or tabular projects related to work status, comments, and flags and associating this information in the presence of maps and layouts. The present study introduces a comprehensive integration solution to achieve a link and a connection between attribute data coming from EPMS Primavera(P6) and Geographic spatial data (location) by using GIS software., geotechnical, geophysical, and field surveys, focusing on specific areas and not spending effort and time in useless locations.
