The role of project management in engineering is not to be understated: project managers are responsible for making sure projects are delivered on time and on budget, managing project teams who work on multiple high paced dynamic projects at once, and liaising with clients to ensure schedules are completed accordingly.
We take a look at why project management is such an important and rewarding part of engineering, and what such roles typically involve by working in an engineering environment as a project manager, we understand key project management principles such as following a framework. Having a set protocol in place undoubtedly minimises time and energy spent on projects – although the project itself may differ, the key elements of project management remain the same. By following a standardised process, engineering projects are able to run more efficiently.
Furthermore, having a set framework in place means you can establish consistency in engineering projects. As a knock-on effect of this, engineers and other individuals involved in engineering projects will become more confident in how they are run. From an engineering perspective, this kind of consistency is extremely valuable.
We can assist in the following fields:
- Budget and financial control;
- Tender and contract documentation;
- Quality and progress control;
- Reporting, evaluating and supervision of contractual procedures.
