Uptime is the only time that matters!
Project Management Is a Prerequisite
Disciplined. Repeatable. Milestone-Driven. Accountability.
Uptime is a first principle in any food processing operation. IPM Project Management is a cultural first principle in our uptime deliverable. Disciplined project management is fundamental to the quality and accuracy of the project planning, design, manufacturing, and installation phases. Accountable project management is central to the value, depth and quality of the customer relationship we build into project planning, budgeting, scheduling and scope freeze phases.
Project Management Delivery Process
At IPM, the Project Management deliverable, and, the Project Management delivery process is a disciplined and repeatable milestone-driven process typically incorporating these phases:
- Project Initiation
- Project Planning & Scope Freeze
- Project Design & Execution
- Project Monitoring & Control
