Enterprise Project Management

...What is Enterprise Project Management (EPM)? How does it differ from conventional project management? A project is an effort a person or group or people undertake in creating unique result, product and service. It is a concept encompassing planning, executing, controlling and closing a mission objective. Burke (2002) asserts this mission objective can be large or small in size, varying among estimated completion period of about a day or years. Managing a project is so challenging because it involves uncertainty and constraint – there is no clear cut formula that works well with every project– and has different attributes (the unique purpose, the required resources, the project sponsor...). This ambiguity forms a paradigm shift for a project manager in succeeding with specific project portfolio. The effective use of tools and techniques however can leverage a project task congruous with applying EPM: The Enterprise Project Management. EPM according to PMBOK Guide (2008) is the management of all data regarding an organization’s projects. Enterprise project and program portfolio success is dependent on the effective applicability of the project met time, scope and cost goals (Schwalbe, 2011, pp.14). Conventional project management focuses on one project at a time but EPM tends to support an organization project or program portfolio – projects that the organization is pursuing– respectively but in an optimal way acknowledged by industry standards in achieving affirmed goals....

The first of these processes is in the definition of activities and action items. Project managers must identify the tasks to be undertaken during the project life cycle. Without the definition of activities and action items, there is nothing to schedule. Methods used to define activities during this process include decomposition and utilization of templates. Decomposition is a breakdown of milestones into action items. The templates may come from previous activities or previous projects. The second process in time management is the sequencing of activities. This process involves the mapping of task dependencies. To do this, project managers will require preceding documents. Tools for this activity include the precedence diagramming method, the arrow diagramming method and other methods for diagramming dependencies. The output for this process is the network diagram.

Textile Sector

...New textile policy brings in Rs 3,800 cr investment The Hindu Business Line: October 22, 2012 Mumbai: The textile sector is on the upswing in Maharashtra due to the new textile policy. Since April, the State has managed to attract Rs 3,834 crore in investments in 411 new textile projects, said State Textile Minister Arif Naseem Khan on Monday. Addressing the media after reviewing the process of policy implementation, Khan said that the new projects would provide about 30,000 jobs in the State. Most of the investment has happened in cotton spinning and ginning units. Textile companies are keen to set up units in Vidarbha, Marathwada and the Khandesh due to the ready supply of cotton, he said. “Due to the policy, the sector is likely to get Rs 40,000 crore investment in the next five years and generate employment for 11 lakh people,” Khan said. Khan said that the policy was not a single-window policy but a ‘zero-window policy,’ in which projects would not come to the Government for clearance, The due diligence is done by banks. If a company manages to get its loan sanctioned under the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme from banks, then it is eligible for subsidy, he said. The Union Government initiated the Scheme in 1999, and it has attracted over Rs 4 lakh crore investments in the sector, as of date. Textile Secretary Sunil Porwal said that all the 411 projects have achieved financial closure. For the Rs 3,834 crore investments, about Rs 400 crore will be the......

Working Capital Management in Textile Industries

...1. INTRODUCTION * The project focuses on the importance of financial analysis for the company as financial Statements are useful as they provide information that allows investors and creditors to make better decisions. However, because of selective reporting of economic events as well as non-comparable accounting methods and estimates, financial statements are only an approximation of reality. In addition, because of the tendency to delay accounting recognition, financial statements also tend to lag reality. * A primary objective of financial analysis is to determine comparable risk and return of companies and their securities. Financial statements include the * Balance Sheet * Income Statement * Cash Flow Statement * The financial statements are interrelated and are used and analysed together. Methods of financial statement analysis are divided into two general categories, internal analysis and comparative or external analysis. * Internal analysis uses figures from the financial statements of any one date or period to gain an understanding of the customer. Comparative analysis is used to determine trends when two or more successive sets of figures are reviewed, or is used to evaluate the company's financial statement against industry standards. * These methods are used separately or in combination. They are part of the tools that enable experienced credit professionals to reach a credit decision. Financial......
