Planning & Requirements

Defining & Planning Task Requirements

Today's Program Managers face many challenges in up-tempo environments and with ever-constricting resources. The need to plan accurately and to prioritize requirements effectively has never been greater. Pulling together programmatics data and status reports quickly and efficiently has always been a challenge. It's time to change all of that.

The Answer: PMADS.

PMADS provides an Enterprise Program Management platform that leverages real-time insights to generate forward-looking requirements. PMADS transforms your planning from reactionary to completely forward-looking and visionary. Plans and priorities are in one place, completely synchronized across the entire organization.

All organization stakeholders, from executive management to technical personnel, share enterprise-wide data. There's no more need for "best guess" data or manual collection of projections. Everyone can view data in one centralized location. PMADS streamlines the process, adds clarity and helps you reach new levels of accuracy in planning and forecasts.

Who Participates in Planning & Requirements?

  • Division Managers: Submit task requirements for funding
  • Project Managers: Approve or disapprove task requirements received from each functional division
  • Business Managers: Align approved task requirements with funding in a streamlined process.

The PMADS Planning offers 2 modules that make it happen.

  • Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
    Life-cycle costs for your project start here.  Functional users in each program division- engineering, logistics, test, etc... - provide their requirements and task estimates as a foundation for the program.
  • Requirements Programming
    PMADS transforms requirements programming from a slow, vertical process to an integrated and collaborative activity. Program analysts are given a framework to input divisional requirements and share them with Project Managers.  PM's gain complete visibility into divisional requirements in real time; accuracy increases and planning time becomes more efficient.  This module delivers a foundation for an executable obligation plan for the year.
