Project Management is the discipline that cultivates the expertise to plan, monitor, track and manage the people, time, budget, and the quality of the work on projects. It is the means by which all the many complex pieces of the project puzzle are fit together.
At Mariposa we assist clients with all aspects of Project Management. This includes: recommendations, implementation, coordination, organization, planning and cost analysis. With our clients we work to:
1. Develop the project plan
2. Choose a methodology or approach for the project
3. Select the project team
4. Identify and evaluate consultants
5. Engage top management sponsors
6. Determine training needs and to arrange team training
Our expertise in the aviation, manufacturing and service segments of our business lays in our ability to identify opportunities and implement process optimizing changes. Because our consultants have in-depth and diverse technical backgrounds, we can provide project management that is not only adept at managing projects but is technically competent in the projects discipline.
Specifically, within our aviation consulting practice: software assessment and implementation, repair and modification [supplemental type certificates (STC), damage evaluation, repair design and implementation], FAA project management activity [certification, stress analysis report approval, and parts manufacturing approval (PMA)]. We also focus on assisting Air Carrier Start-Ups and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) software developers with project management.
Within our manufacturing and service consulting practice: software assessment and implementation [ERP, MRP, SCM, ABC], Six Sigma deployment, Lean Manufacturing initiatives, Strategic Assessment & Alignment and SWOT analysis, marketing and sales evaluation.
Furthermore, we assist many smaller clients, who would otherwise pull valuable key employees from their primary duties to manage a project. At Mariposa we can supplement an organization's existing staff with temporary technical coordination and project management assistance, thus ensuring a successful start and finish to the project.
