Greenwood Village, CO (PressExposure) July 15, 2011 -- Project Management is one of the Equipment Manufacturers biggest challenges. Managing a project to ensure optimal profitability when each order is unique, challenges the industrial supply chain. Industrial projects require a custom combination of materials and labor, in-house and outsourced items, and a blend of standard and specially designed components. Industrial Project Management also requires the tracking of each stage of the project, from engineering design and development, through material acquisition, across manufacturing process and often beyond delivery to installation and service.
