BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT

PMDb

Our proprietary Business Process Management System, PMDb, is the tool that connects our people to policies and technology, to optimize business operations. PMDb has been developed to normalize procedures, increase efficiencies and guide project teams to out-perform expectations.

PMDb provides up to the minute data for the overall company or as granular as the individual part. All personnel have project metrics allowing for continual monitoring of performance and program status.

By focusing on Process Management, we iteratively improve our methods and ensure consistency of customer experience. Leveraging software automation provides freedom to focus on the important tasks of schedule and budget.

Process Grid

PMDb Process Grid

Data for each project auto-populates into the Process Grid, creating metrics for the project team members. Each Grid matrix location contains information about a specific station on the machine; due dates, station owners, process steps, commercial performance, and ETC’s.

Each Grid location is dynamic and interactive, with the PM able to approve process steps directly from the Grid location.

The Process Grid helps to speed the processing of updates, keeping data and action items up to the minute, the project team focused, and your project on schedule.

Features & Reports

PMDb Process Steps

PMDb is a vast repository of automatically populated data. This data is valuable in analyzing how we are doing both on individual projects and as a business. The Project Management group has access to all project-relevant reporting tools and uses these in the weekly project team meetings.

Some of the more heavily used reports are Action Items, so all team members (PMD and the Client) stay on top of their responsibilities, the Shortage report, so that we know exactly what machine components are trending late (and target our vendor communications) and the PMD designed BOM structure. The BOM is packed with info-at-a-glance, allowing anyone the ability to take what they need from the color-coding or drill deeper to get granular information on parts, details, assemblies, or overall project info.
