Innovation after innovation, brick by brick, and lumber by lumber, the building and fabrication industry has arrived at the place we see it today. We may not live in the era of primitive mud houses and stone monoliths but the construction needs of contemporary times are seldom different, with a few changes here and there.
Speaking purely of modern times, most residential and commercial buildings’ design plans include safety, privacy, acoustic comfort, and energy-efficiency as the prime factors. Besides constructing aesthetic and functional structures, the fabrication industry is keen on helping the environment via efficient usage of raw materials and recycling.
PMO was introduced in AIS in early 2016. It was implemented to provide end-to-end management of projects and to provide a single point of contact to the client, to construct a detailed work plan to achieve the milestones and communicate the result across the stakeholder audience. The project lifecycle is broken into five parts/stages & worked upon. These stages are:
An external kick-off meeting with the key stakeholders at the client end is done to understand the project demand & requirement closely. A project charter is made to document the key highlights & an internal kick-off meeting is done with the AIS backend team to appraise every one of the project details.
Basis the demand schedule of the project, planning is done for three parts viz. raw glass, soft coating and processing. This prior planning significantly reduces the turn-around time for meeting the project requirement and aligns all the former three parts of the process.
Day-to-day communication and coordination is done with the customers. Orders are planned & executed as per the customer demand & the DIFOT is kept in check. Customer is kept aware of their orders and plan V. actual is shared.
Monitoring & Control
The project progress & cost is monitored with close coordination with CFTs. The cost is controlled by monitoring the design yield, quality, adherence to timelines. A governance structure is defined wherein project progress is apprised to the key stakeholders at defined time intervals.
Project supplies and payments are reconciled. NPS is taken from the key stakeholder of the project from the customer end and is used as a reference to work upon the customer pain points if any.
The customers, shareholders, suppliers, employers and society are the stakeholders of our Company. We are committed to their satisfaction. We must provide value in our activities through world-class quality, cost competitiveness and on-time delivery.
