The transition to project management in manufacturing

Implementing project management in an industrial company involves a considerable learning process and usually takes from three to five years. This article discusses three traditional learning stages (awareness, learning, and improvement) as they apply to nine steps through which a manufacturing company moves as they implement project management. The nine steps are: 1) awareness of the benefits of project management; 2) realizing that software isn't enough; 3) disillusionment about quick software fixes; 4) searching for improved task scheduling; 5) establishing a progress tracking system; 6) submitting to disciplined measurement and comparison; 7) scheduling resource utilization and cash flow for project management; 8) addressing unforeseen problems with project management; and 9) continuous improvement through performance measurement.
