Visibility for Project Manufacturers
Jan 17, 2005
Complex tasks require efficient tools. Without modern tools, complex project-based orders require a considerable amount of administration from the project manager. The pressure of mounting competition means that providers must be increasingly accurate when calculating costs and due dates. Moreover, there are usually uncertainties at the quote issuing stage as not all requirements are generally specified in detail. The lack of integrated IT support for projects often means that deviations from the project plan are identified too late and the appropriate measures cannot be implemented in time. Different departments and project managers frequently use different tools and different approaches. Project control, if it exists at all, is ill-equipped to provide management with appropriate data and information.
