A formal project management system ... how is it acquired?

Though the ultimate benefits of implementing Modern Project Management (MPM) are quite significant, the development of a formal project management system is time-consuming and often frustrating, going against the grain of many attitudes which are traditional in the manufacturing industry. This article describes a four-phase method for creating a formal project management system in a manufacturing environment. In the first, introduction phase, support is obtained from top management down; and in the acceptance phase, support is obtained from the bottom up. During the implementation phase, project roles and responsibilities are defined, and tasks are assigned start- and finish-dates. The integration phase involves implementing MPM procedures and utilizing MPM tools. By embedding MPM principles into every business process, manufacturing organizations have much to gain.
