A "Rolling" Success

The fundamentals of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) have enabled countless numbers of project professionals to successfully realize important endeavors. This article discusses how a project team from the engineering firm of Fluor Daniel used PMBOK® fundamentals to design and construct a US$200 million expansion of an aluminum rolling facility in Kentucky (USA), a five-year-long project that created a 260,000-square-foot building for metal manufacturer Alcan, a project realized through an alliance between Alcan and Fluor Daniel and included SMS Engineering and Siemens as stakeholders, a project completed two months ahead of schedule and five percent under budget. This article documents the progression of the project and relates its development to PMBOK fundamentals.
