What exactly is project management? To answer that, let’s first look at the definition of a project. A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to accomplish a singular goal. It’s involves a set of operations with a defined beginning and end and a defined scope. Managing a project is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to meet the project requirements and achieve the end goal.
Project management is key to the success of materials handling systems projects. All aspects of your project must be expertly managed effectively and efficiently to deliver on-time, on-budget results. According to the Project Management Institute (PMI), Project management processes fall into five groups:

  1. Initiating
  2. Planning
  3. Executing
  4. Monitoring and Controlling
  5. Closing

And project management knowledge draws on ten areas:

  1. Integration
  2. Scope
  3. Time
  4. Cost
  5. Quality
  6. Procurement
  7. Human resources
  8. Communications
  9. Risk management
  10. Stakeholder management
