Project Management

Project Management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over-and-over again. The management of these two systems is often very different and requires varying technical skills and philosophy, hence requiring the development of project management.

Change and Configuration Management for Today’s Dynamic A&D Organizations

White Paper Published By: IBM     Published Date: Mar 17, 2009
With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes.

Job Scheduling Evaluation Guide

White Paper Published By: Tidal Software     Published Date: Sep 03, 2008
IT groups must support many applications and servers across multiple platforms that frequently operate independently of each other. However, coordinating job scheduling across all these applications and networks is often required to optimize resource utilization. The traditional approach of applying more staff, toolkits, and rudimentary scheduling software to cobble together automated batch processing solutions becomes cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and error-prone, as the number of moving parts increases and the environment becomes more heterogeneous.

Prevention of ERP Implementation Failure

White Paper Published By: Adaptive Growth     Published Date: May 14, 2008
Projects to implement ERP tend to be difficult, expensive and drawn-out. They are often full of painful surprises and overrun budgets and schedules that were extravagant in the first place. They fail entirely in an alarming number of cases.  Why this should be so is not immediately apparent. If we list, at a fairly high level, the tasks required to implement an ERP system in a company that’s already familiar with ERP practices, what we see is a significant but not daunting amount of work.
