We Developed an Amazing Project Management Team During a Pandemic
First, the Why?
When building robust machinery and equipment, organization and communication are essential to ensure a project runs smoothly. Many companies rely on the Sales Team to manage the projects they bring in. However, you end up with Sales managing existing projects and not focusing on new ones. In manufacturing, one of the best ways to stay organized and move projects forward is to invest in a great project management program.
Then, the Who?
Who better to oversee intricate time-sensitive projects than an engineer? We saw the benefit of having individuals with engineering backgrounds become the project management team to catch issues before they happen and delay a project less than had it been missed. Also, having someone that can speak the language helps communication between the team and our customers.
Creating the team is step one. To be successful, one must invest in continuing education. Our project managers put in the effort to continue to educate themselves through college classes, software training, and even Project Management Professional (or PMP) certification. They work hard to learn the necessary tools needed as technology changes and advances.
Utilizing critical chain software, our project managers ensure top performance and response at each project stage. They can quickly review each project, communicate progress, and even make last-minute changes to a project. This software ensures a quick response to any potential setbacks and an excellent understanding of each component’s precise stage in the manufacturing process.
Since implementing the project management team, Orbitform is proud to share that we have seen tremendous organizational improvements, on-time delivery, and customer satisfaction. We constantly strive for perfection and continue to invest, train, and build our project management team. At Orbitform, we strive to deliver solutions that exceed our customers’ expectations.
