Regulatory Compliance Case Study

Industry

Manufacturing

Situation

The company was faced with a need to have its products meet new EPA regulatory requirements. These regulations required the company to make a large number of technology modifications. As a result, the company needed to draw from key company staffing and equipment resources, which were already over-allocated. Failure to comply with the new regulations would have resulted in the inability for the company to sell their product.

PMAlliance Solution

We pulled together a core team of project leaders and developed a high-level project plan to verify that the current approach would meet regulatory compliance dates. Next, we met with the project team to break the high-level plan into detailed work tasks.

Once the project plan was finalized, PMAlliance assisted the company in accurately identifying critical paths to achieving key milestones and make decisions based on plan data. The company also used this data to analyze the allocation of key staffing and equipment resources and then transitioned the key resources from non-critical to critical path activities.

Outcome

The company not only met EPA regulatory requirements by the mandated deadline, but it also received several industry awards for the technology solutions.

The company has fully adopted the process PMAlliance developed for this project, and the plan to meet the next phase of emissions regulations is already in place. The company uses this plan to ensure it meets key program milestones and makes important project decisions in a proactive instead of a reactive manner.
