Hi! you provided excellent help on a previous question and would like your help again :)
I'm writing a paper on project governance in the manufacturing industry - see attached abstract & current references. I'd like a few pages (3-4) evaluating the current PM literature on project governance practices in manufacturing.
RUNNING HEAD: Governance in Manufacturing 1 Abstract
This paper will explore the role of project and program governance in the context of a
manufacturing operations environment of a large organization. For the purposes of this paper,
manufacturing operations will include all processes and functions that support the production
scope of a specified program. This includes manufacturing, quality, program management,
and engineer support. Given that manufacturing operations is often the churn and burn unit of
a large organization, the Project Management Office (PMO) holds manufacturing and
supporting functions more accountable for cost and schedule than successful project
management practices. It can very often be observed that the ?normalization of deviance?
phenomenon is a regular practice in manufacturing ops in order to meet delivery and/or cost
goals (Pinto, 2014). However this is at the risk, and sometimes loss, of best practices and
define procedures. The goal of this paper is to provide recommendations on how the PMO can
strengthen project governance practices within these environments to achieve greater work
flow and reduce risk across the multiple programs the unit supports. This will be achieved
through external research and the evaluation of current manufacturing operations at Boeing
The research methodology for this paper includes evaluation of current governance
practices implemented in manufacturing operation at the Boeing, Defense, Space & Security
site in Huntington Beach, California. This particular site manufactures parts in support of
nearly 30 distinct programs at any given time and thus presents a unique case study. Due to
increased complexity of the PMO structure in this case, evaluation will focus on the three
main programs manufacturing operations supports and how the PMO governs the PM
processes affecting these programs. In addition to this live case study research, external Governance in Manufacturing Operations
research will be used to identify current understand of the role governance plays in
manufacturing operations. Current research tends to lead to project benefits governance,
where the industry standard is leaning towards risk avoidance, namely process-based risk
analysis, over the benefits of project governance. Ultimately this research will allow for
recommendations to be made for Boeing Huntington Beach as well as potential future
research topics. 2 Governance in Manufacturing Operations 3 Appendix A
