Program Management

Target Zero Delays

ENOVIA Program Management allows companies to target zero delays with their product planning and development processes to achieve optimal cycle times within scope, capacity and resource constraints.  Organizations can concentrate on the most profitable products while standardizing on best-in-class business processes across the extended enterprise.

ENOVIA Program Management simplifies how project tasks status, risks and issues are communicated. Project governance occurs “invisibly” as users complete their product development activities.

Description

ENOVIA Program Management uniquely accomplishes zero delays by linking product development data to project execution.  In effect, project management becomes data-driven by being linked with the product portfolio.  When the two processes are disconnected with different technologies, there are multiple projects being defined and tracked, but they are not grounded in the reality of the product data that is being created as part of the project.  As a result, it is difficult to understand or contain execution issues related to product planning decisions or portfolio issues related to execution problems.

ENOVIA Program Management makes the updating of project task status part of the same 3DEXPERIENCE® system used to develop and manage the content delivered to fulfill the project task. When users can report task status via their normal activities, the concept of “invisible governance” is enabled. The alternative to “invisible governance” is team members communicating status through informal approaches like e-mail, or project managers being forced to manually collect and compile status updates. This is effort intensive and very time consuming. Further, the information is always out-of-date since progress goes on immediately after status is reported. Inefficiency and poor/late data makes effective decisions a matter or intuition rather than data-driven. Project Team Member eliminates these issues.
