Reference Project

Initial situation: A supplier of software and components faced with most of its engineering projects massive schedule and quality issues because the necessary management actions were taken too late

Solution: Vector was asked to improve the risk management with respect to changing business models. We identified three root causes to the schedule and quality issues, namely a rather high number of technical risks that were not mitigated in due time, a lack of visibility of projects' content and progress, and unprofessional supplier management. With this background we introduced systematic project management and periodic reviews with major stakeholders in order to sufficiently early assess progress and risks and specifically to ensure adequate corrective actions. Following a pilot phase we trained this new process and then introduced it to all all projects. For six months we coached the project managers and even had one of our managers participating in all project reviews to educate on proper project monitoring and control.

Results: The effort on project management payed off. We could improve schedule adherence and quality by up to 30 percent.
