mCloud's project management process is modeled after the Project Management Institute project model using the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®).
Project Planning, Budget Control, and Cost Tracking
We manage projects from a few hours in duration to programs lasting years and in excess of hundreds of thousands of man-hours. To accomplish this, we have adopted and developed a variety of methods that offer scalability to meet our clients' business needs, including:
- a three-level planning process, which tracks and reports planned progress, earned value, and expended budget and reports this data at periodic intervals
- detailed coordination and progress tracking tools for discipline leads and the mCloud project manager
- a scope-change control and tracking mechanism, whereby requested additions and changes in project scope are routed through a scope definition, cost estimation, client approval, and project budget modification process
The fundamental purpose of quality management processes, in particular as it applies to project delivery, is the mitigation of risk to achieve optimum business results. mCloud's engineering project methodology is based on the concepts of risk analysis and specification-verification driven quality management. This approach drives us to adopt innovative methods of identifying challenges, develop engineering solutions to meet those challenges, and verify that the end result meets the need.
