DMC worked with a multinational manufacturer of construction equipment, to streamline their project management using SharePoint synchronization.
The client's engineering group was using Windchill, a product lifecycle management software, to manage their projects. They manufacture large, complicated machinery that often requires change requests, notifications, and new orders throughout the project process. While Windchill monitors these system events, it does not manage the amount of effort per task needed for a change.
DMC synchronized the client's Windchill data with an on-premise SharePoint solution. This enabled the client to assign project start and end dates as well as the anticipated amount of time. Dashboards were created to display employee availability and project hours needed. DMC also implemented project sites to more efficiently store documents, track milestones, and manage project issues. DMC developed custom Gantt charts with the flexibility to display project tasks in a timeline. The result was a more comprehensive project management system with increased accessibility.
