Resource management has become a crucial link in overall project management these days. Manufacturers of a new and high end engineered products face far more challenging design, production and delivery obstacles compared to discrete and repetitive manufacturers. This is due to the fact that engineers need more time to produce these complex products. It is in this context that the resource management plays a crucial role.
In order to meet the product development deadlines, a robust resource management program, for both human and non-human resources, has to be in place. We at Swift Technologies have evolved such a program which enables our clients to place a demand on materials, work center capacity and work force as soon as a new product launch becomes known. This is absolutely essential to reserve these critical resources in the estimating and engineering stages without waiting for the other processes are complete. This capability is often the difference between projects delivered on-time and those that are not.
