Case Study: Project Portfolio Management with Onepoint in the Manufacturing Industry
Expert conference of German institute for project management focuses on tools and solutions: Onepoint also present at exhibition area
At this year's expert conference of the German institute for project management the successful deployment of a project and portfolio management (PPM) solution of Onepoint Software in the manufacturing industry will be presented as a case study. At Amazonen-Werke H. Dreyer GmbH & Co. KG Onepoint supports research and development projects. In addition, visitors of the event ("Focus > Projektmanagement Tools & Lösungen 2009") can get first hand experience regarding the usability of Onepoint Project.
In its third year, the yearly expert conference has established itself as an important market place for PM tools and solutions. Project managers and vendors are going to present up-to-date project work in the form of workshops and presentations as well as demos in the exhibition area. In doing so, the focus is clearly on the practical aspects of project management. This year's key topics are the selection, implementation processes and the solution aspects of PM tools. In this context the case study presented by Jörn Henkelmann, project manager construction/R&D at Amazone, will share his experience applying project management based on Onepoint Project in his company. The strongly export-oriented vendor of agricultural implements and municipal technology sees itself on the road to success since many years. In order to stay competitive, it constantly stimulates research and innovation. With its development team distributed across different locations, Amazone also cooperates closely with research institutes and universities abroad.
"Development projects are typically time and resource critical and thus, a major challenge for the project managers," said Gerald Mesaric, CEO of Onepoint Software. "For the development team at Amazone Onepoint Project has proven to be an ideal fit since it integrates ad-hoc monitoring, traffic light functions and plan/actual comparisons. Through the increased transparency project risks are minimized." These advantages will also be presented in a public live demo on May 6, 2009.
Onepoint Software will also be present at the exhibition area. Interested parties have the possibility to get a first impression of the latest version Onepoint Project 9 in individual live demos. The Web-based project leadership software provides an innovative approach to integrated project management from planning to monitoring and controlling. It is available both for on-premise installation and as Software as a Service (SaaS).
