Work Control

The Work Control Center (WCC) is a fully integrated module system with multi-step workflow, work authorization, work assignment, and status tracking. WCC plans, prioritizes, and schedules maintenance, repair, and renovation work at the Southern University Baton Rouge campus.  The WCC manages the work reception function and receives customer requests either through web-based customer information system, facsimile or emergency call by phone.  The WCC facilitates task-planning and risk assessment; specifies project-performance standards and critical milestones; attaches pertinent documents to work authorizations; assigns work breakdown structure and resources to work authorizations; integrates fully with Facility Services (OFS) integrates with timesheet and requisition modules to control labor and material charges; generates service requests; and dynamically updates customers with status reports.

The WCC develops, prioritizes and programs major maintenance and capital outlay projects.  It is also responsible for planning and estimating in-house projects.
