Project Management in Shopfitting
The Project Manager of a shopfitting project guarantees the coordination of the store fittings, is a central contact person and can be seen as interface between Sales and Production/Logistics and the customer.
Project Management is the successful conformance to a complex Launch-/Relaunch task,
which is defined by an explicit objective,
- until a fixed deadline
- in a defined quality
- through a verified budget
- with minimal expended resources
The most important basic points are depicted in the “magic triangle“:
The employment often begins with the Project Management being involved in the planning phase, as technical circumstances need to be discussed by the Project Manager and the Planning Department. The Project Manager is very often involved in the scheduling of the budgets (both for the furniture and the lot). Generally the Project Management prepares schedules and cost plans, monitors and coordinates the calculation and construction in-house, transmits information to the Purchasing Department and is available as contact person for Production and Logistics.
The responsibility at a construction side usually begins with the delivery of the goods. The PROJECT MANAGEMENT coordinates the delivery, the distribution and the installation of the store fittings (furniture) and is responsible for the coordination of the different lots.
Project Management is supported by the Project Engineering Department, where specialists are working who are responsible for preparing parts lists, work schedules and construction- and detail drawings. On the construction site the Project Management usually is supported by a Site Manager. The Project Manager is professionally and disciplinarily responsible for all members of staff who are involved in the respective shopfitting project.
