Project management is the key to successful material handling systems
Ask an Expert
Project management is critical for the success of conveyor and other material handling systems - it is where a project can succeed or fail. That's why we dedicate significant talent and resources into developing the finest project management teams possible to help execute your project correctly, on time, and to your specifications.
Our approach has proven effective in numerous large material handling installations. We recognize the importance of collaboration during the project planning stage and subsequent monitoring throughout the implementation phase. We work to bring you up-front planning, realistic & agreed upon milestones, and measurement criteria.
Approach to systems integration
Cisco-Eagle Project Management Teams take the responsibility for all tasks involved in the implementation of the project once it has been accepted. This provides you with a defined focal point of contact for all the various vendors, installers, and inspectors that come with a major project implementation. No matter where the subcontractors are, no matter who they are, you have only one number to call and one entity to deal with - Cisco-Eagle.
Typical sequence of activities:
- Confirmation of Purchaser, Cisco-Eagle, and major vendors' project organization and responsibility
- Approval of the project schedule
- Finalize the system and software/control design (with Purchaser approval)
- System design and subsequent design review
- Material procurement and scheduling of human resources
- Installation and check-out of mechanical systems
- System start-up
- System testing and Purchaser acceptance
- Training, documentation and system support
The Project Management Team reports directly to the Cisco-Eagle, Inc. Manager of Project Implementation. The Project Management Team will be comprised of a Sales Representative, Project Manager, Project Engineer, Project Coordinator and an On-Site Field Project Manager. The Project Manager and the Project Engineer will be office based with frequent installation site visits during critical milestones of the project. The On-Site Field Project Manager will be a Full Time Supervisor at the installation site from commencement of the Project through Acceptance and Training.

- Establishment of schedules that correspond to the Purchaser’s objectives
