Business Process Implementation Services

We provide a team of project management experts versed in a variety of process improvement methodologies, from the Theory of Constraints (TOC) and Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) to Lean and Kanban to ensure your business delivers results.

Our team has worked with 300-plus customers around the world to develop simple multi-project management solutions for their complex environments across multiple industries. Whether you're in maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), engineer-to-order (ETO) or new product development (NPD) environment, our services help you deliver projects 20% to 50% faster and 10% to 30% more efficiently.

Looking for a complete software and process solution? Need to integrate a proven process solution with your current project management tools (e.g. MS Project, Primavera, Open Plan, etc.)? Our comprehensive three-step approach - analysis, setup and rollout - can take you there.

Analysis

In the analysis phase, we thoroughly investigate your organization’s goals, strategies and constraints. We look at current business needs versus desired performance, especially throughput, cycle time and on-time delivery. We examine losses in efficiency from desynchronization, particularly as they affect engineers, managers, experts and support departments. We estimate the potential benefits that our implementation can bring to cycle time and throughput. Then, we develop a full implementation plan that covers all business processes, so you can see exactly how our implementation will improve
your business.

Setup

In the setup phase, we design a solution that considers the effect of limitating work in process (WIP) and includes a master schedule and priorities for execution. We also create buy-in sessions for executives, middle managers and first-line managers, where we explain the ins and outs of the business processes, address issues and make sure everyone is ready.

Roll Out

In the rollout phase, we focus on two aspects -- implementation and continuous improvement. In the implementation stage, we emphasize full kitting, reducing WIP and creating a system of priorities across the organization so that everybody is working on what’s most important. To help you achieve continuous improvement, we provide analytics to identify areas that need help. We also provide an auditing service to ensure that your new processes are working for you. In this phase, we can get you moving with our patented execution software, Concerto.

Throughout our implementation work, you’ll be impressed with the way we collaborate with you to understand your business, your operational needs and how we can best help you use your new business processes -- now and in the future. More than just helping you change, we bring Realization’s full business expertise to make sure your entire organization gets the full benefit from your investment.

Concerto Software

Have you ever wished…

...your entire organization could make projects run faster and more efficiently by collaborating on Critical Chain Project Management? Now it can – with Concerto from Realization.

Concerto is the first web-based multi-project management system that integrates principles of Pull and the Theory of Constraints. It lets everyone see where to capitalize on a project’s gains and where to tackle challenges, so projects meet both budgets and deadlines. Concerto takes the project’s status from team leads and managers, and automatically updates all plans and sets priorities for every team across all projects. By giving team leads and managers one common place to communicate their teams’ progress and issues, Concerto creates a new level of synchronization in project management and execution to contain multitasking. And that means a greater chance of on-time, on-budget delivery.

Concerto Critical Chain Planning Client

Concerto’s Critical Chain Planning Client integrates with MS Project so project managers can identify their project’s critical chain and automatically cut and buffer tasks.Read more.

Project managers can also examine a schedule What-If by adjusting the quantity of resources available or modifying dependencies. By using Concerto’s Critical Chain Planning Client, managers can determine a project’s most efficient and cost-effective schedule and resource allocation – and communicate it to everyone in the organization. People stop working at cross purposes, and everyone starts pulling in the same direction.

Concerto Pipeline Client

Using the Theory of Constraints, Concerto’s Pipeline Client lets a portfolio owner/master scheduler identify the constraining resource or phase in an operation and schedule the project based on the selected constraint.Read more.

The portfolio owner/master scheduler can also explore What-Ifs for the pipeline by adjusting the priority of projects to see the impact on due dates. The result: a truly optimized schedule that will help your organization avoid bottlenecks and meet critical deadlines.

Concerto Web Client

The Concerto Web Client is where planning meets execution and control. Read more.

For task-level execution, Concerto Web gives each task manager a custom task list prioritized by our patented buffer logic – so everyone is always working on the most important tasks across the entire organization. At the project level, Concerto Web shows the status for projects based on their progress and buffer consumption, and identifies tasks that need management’s attention. Concerto Web makes sure first things always get done first, even in a changing environment where priorities can shift daily.

For control, Concerto gives executives a dashboard for all the projects in their portfolio. In addition, Concerto Web provides metrics on Throughput, Cycle Time, On-Time Delivery and much more, so executives can stay up-to-date on progress and intervene as necessary to keep projects on track.
