Engineering Project Management

Concurrent Engineering (CE) and Integrated Product Development (IPD) practices maximize the use of available resources and keep development time and costs minimized. This is the overall scope in which we frame the projects we manage. Development and engineering emphasis is placed on Design For Manufacturing (DFM) methodologies to make the transition from pre-production prototypes to full production product as smooth as possible.

We start by working with you to create a project management plan. Before creating any product development or engineering project plan, it's important to:
At a minimum, product development and engineering project plans must define the: Additional definitions can include:

From the definitions provided by these, it's possible to determine the best approach for the overall project management methodology. In all cases, quality requirements always take priority in activities defined in the project management plan. The typical activity management approach usually falls under one or a mix of the following:

Traditional Phased
Project Management includes the sequential initiation, planning and design, execution and construction, monitoring and controlling, and completion phases of the project.

Critical Chain Project Management is planning and managing project activities while dealing with uncertainties in projects with limited resources including physical, human skills, management & support capacity.

Agile Project Management is based on the principles of team interaction management founded on individual collaboration.

Lean Project Management
relies on principles of lean manufacturing to focus on delivering value with less waste and reduced time.

Extreme Project Management is based on extreme programming models for projects and activities spanning a few weeks Vs traditional methods taking much longer time.
