Background of the project management methodology
A project is a one off activity that will never be exactly repeated, which has a defined start point and a defined end point. Project management
is the process by which the project is planned, monitored and
delivered. Thereby meeting the requirements of the desired outcome,
usually in terms of time, cost and quality.
The project management methodology
This project management methodology describes an idealised product
development process. It has been developed with the firm belief that
good product quality can only be delivered through a robust and thorough
product development process. This process takes a product centric
viewpoint that builds quality into the product as it is developed.
relatively high level process is described whereby a series of tasks
are completed prior to a project gateway where the status of these tasks
is formally reviewed, documented and approved by the business. When a
gateway is approved the product delivery can move on to the next set of
tasks and activities. However, if the requirements of the gateway are
not met the project should be paused until those deliverables are
completed to the desired standard.
The project management training course
This one day on-site project management training course explains how to successfully operate the project management process module.
The intent of this and all our training courses is not to tell or show
the trainees what to do but to impart the capability to perform the
required tasks. There is no limit to the number of trainees but we

that if there are any more than this the training becomes ineffective
course is targeted at the product design engineers, the manufacturing
engineers and the programme managers delivering new products. This
training course is given in English. All our courses are designed to be
informal and are based around a series of discussions and practical
