Project Management

Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again. The management of these two systems is often very different and requires varying technical skills and philosophy, hence requiring the development of project management.

Capturing product knowledge has proven to be very difficult and early attempts at building systems to capture and reuse knowledge have failed because they were too limited technically, required users to be able to develop computer codes (or programs) to embody knowledge rules and actions, and they did not work with common product design tools such as CAD and PDM systems.

Across the mid-market, inefficiencies are compounded by the lack of visibility into pertinent data, of processes being adequately and flexibly automated, and for the performance of the business to be monitored on a constant basis. Without such capabilities, businesses will find it difficult to survive the current financial conditions – yet creating an environment where information can be easily aggregated and viewed has never been easier. Also, business performance can be easily monitored with small proactive, and even reactive, actions ensuring effective responses to market forces and enabling organisations to compete with local and more global business threats.

With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes. The complexity of products and development processes, as well as the globalization of product development, are all contributing to an environment that is becoming more difficult to manage with each new program or project.

Fortune magazine has reported that nine out of ten corporate strategies devised on the executive level are never implemented. Gartner estimates that 75% of all IT projects are considered to be failures by those responsible for initiating them – i.e. they did not do what was agreed, missed deadlines and/or came in over budget. Indeed half of the projects exceeded budget by 200%. A Standish Group study found that 31% of projects were cancelled outright and that the performance of 53% of all projects was so worrying that they were challenged.

Time is money, resources are scarce and only projects that add value and meet the organization's strategic aim and objectives should be flying. Why is it, therefore, that so many projects are running that have not been formally approved, burn limited and finite resource and, most importantly, do not improve or deliver new services or increase market share?
