ABOUT

TOPIC

Facilitated by Avanade, this interactive roundtable discussion explores the creative ways manufacturers can use Project Operations applications and Financial Project Accounting. Senior executives will have the opportunity to share input, ask questions, and hear from industry experts about meeting challenges with project capabilities.

This event is part of a special “Café Series,” which delivers an engaging discussion on hard-hitting topics and provides a complimentary metal coffee tumbler, artisan coffee, and virtual entertainment.


Building project capabilities for a better manufacturing experience

Manufacturing companies can optimize their business processes by using project management applications to monitor direct manufacturing and new product development. However, it can be difficult to identify which of the different project applications are a natural fit for manufacturing company activities.

Leaders are challenged to review projects in direct manufacturing and business scenarios that merit using project tracking on top of sales and production. It is also a priority to examine new product development, marketing events and coordination, and how project operations can encapsulate the activities, resources, and costs of these critical business processes.

  • What production activities in project-based scenarios should companies prioritize? How about project activities for new product development?
  • What defines “the gray space” between project finance and accounting and a project operations application?
  • What do industry experts recommend toward delivering exceptional manufacturing experiences?
