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.
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.
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.
What cplace Can Do for You
Collaborative project management
Complex schedules are structured by breaking down the overall project planning into arbitrarily detailed and interlinked sub-plans. These sub-plans are linked via a common database and enable the delegation of decisions and their execution across plans and companies.
Improved resource planning
cplace helps to effectively plan and utilize resources such as manpower to ensure that projects can be completed within the planned budget and schedule.
With cplace, employees can design their own digital work environment in which they like to work. Changes and adjustments can be made without programming knowledge. cplace also offers integration options in the existing system landscape.
Potential risks such as cost overruns, delays, or quality problems are identified at an early stage through cplace’s risk assessment and can thus be minimized.
cplace CCP enables cross-company collaboration in multi-tier supply chains. External partners and suppliers can be securely integrated into the company’s own planning process.
cplace enables users to see exactly the view of data that is relevant to them and displays information depending on the user role, e.g., as a milestone in a Gantt chart.
