Plant and product line moves are always more difficult than planned or anticipated.
By acknowledging the risks upfront, developing contingency plans for them, and proactively managing the move, the project should succeed in spite of the surprises you are sure to encounter along the way.
A typical approach in developing a WBS is to start at the highest level, with the product of the project.
For example, you are assigned as the project manager of a New Product Development project.
Move/consolidation projects must be viewed as strategic in nature with long-term marketing and manufacturing implications.
For example, it makes no sense to move a product from a loaded plant to one that has available capacity when product demand is evaporating.
Students will also learn how to communicate project information by using Project Server 2013, and how to integrate Project data with other Office applications.It has its own set of issues and potential disasters if not done carefully with the appropriate products, planning, product support and effective technical and administrative input and management. Make sure receiving plants can accommodate all operating requirements for the new products.Information system differences between the sending and receiving sites are often an issue.The project schedule is the tool that communicates what work needs to be performed, which resources of the organization will perform the work and the timeframes in which that work needs to be performed.The project schedule should reflect all of the work associated with delivering the project on time.
