Complex Project and Portfolio Management in Mechanical Engineering

As a highly specialized industry requiring technical expertise, complex processes, and innovative solutions, the mechanical engineering industry faces unique challenges in implementing successful projects. From planning and design to execution and implementation, companies must be able to maintain an overview, optimize resources, and control time and cost management.

Complex projects 

Designing and manufacturing machines requires close collaboration with departments that have specialized knowledge in each area. Coordinating and integrating these different components can be a major challenge, especially when changes or adjustments are required during the course of the project.

Time and cost management 

In mechanical engineering, schedules are often tight and budgets are limited. Project management must therefore ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget. This requires careful planning, monitoring, and management of resources to avoid delays and cost overruns.

Risk management 

Engineering projects often involve various risks. Companies must therefore be able to identify potential risks at an early stage, assess them, and take appropriate measures to manage them.
