AAC has experienced Engineers in Project Management. Effective Project Managers have the skills to provide the tools and techniques to motivate and enable the project team to execute the project effectively.

Planning – Creating a detailed report with chain of events that need to happen throughout the project. This includes a timeline and clear communication with stakeholders about how the entire project in all its phases.
Executing – The goal of this phase is to organize teams to get the work done efficiently and effectively so that the project stays on target. It is important at this phase to identify all areas of risk or concern and mitigate these, and to address any change requests brought forth by the team.
Monitoring and Controlling – At this phase, the Project Management requires keeping an eye on team performance and reacting quickly and appropriately to emerging issues. This is essential for maintaining positive forward momentum. Keeping stakeholders up to date on progress and team performance with reports and on-going documentation helps ensure project success. Regular assessment of progress related to scope, benchmark goals, timeline, and budget helps to ensure that there are no unpleasant surprises.
Closing – Finishing the project strong with all the details in place is important. Ensuring all documentation is complete and current, for example Engineering Change Orders etc, is essential to a successful project.
