A new era in project management - Synchronized operations and projects
We live in a world defined by multi-tasking, information overload, and not just unrealistic deadlines, but many of them. Success today is increasingly defined by the speed and effectiveness of reacting to omnipresent real world changes.
Historically, the impact of last minute change and variations were absorbed by loyal customers and covered by manufacturing "fat" high margins and excess inventory, capacity, cycle time, and more. Today we must manage our total organization, functional silos, manufacturing, and field installations with a high degree of precision without any of the excesses of the past.
The competitive necessity to outsource and partner brings with it increasing complexity and unique challenges in responding to these challenges.
Whether a rapidly growing start-up or an established industry leader, to be competitive in today's global economy requires organizations to develop better plans and excel in dealing rapidly and profitably to plan variations.
Confoe RapidCap represents a new paradigm in project management that is critical in this new era. Unlike traditional project management that seeks to make everyone into a project practitioner or manager, RapidCap engages each employee with actionable information that simplifies their daily efforts to stay on track. RapidCap status is always updated in real time at the point of origin and quickly becomes a normal and essential part of everyday operations.
Complex project structure is maintained in the "back-office" enabling RapidCap to synchronize operations and deliver proven results to the following business management challenges:
- Timely RFQ responses
- Critical engineering milestones
- R&D hand-off to manufacturing
- Field installation and construction projects
- Capacity expansions
RapidCap is the answer to the question of how companies collaborate. It's secure interface allows multiple companies on a construction site, including all trades and capital equipment engineers to collaborate in a virtual "one plan" environment. No more cross arm salutes, or finger pointing. As one Confoe customer put it:
"What this means is we do not have to sit around the table and lie to each other anymore..."
70% of all alliances fail due to poor operational visibility and metrics (according to the Association of Strategic Aliance Professionals). RapidCap provides the venue to ensure that this does not become the fate of your strategic initiative.
