At any time throughout the project, executives can view the project portfolio of the organization. The image reveals little about the design of the nose, other than it is clearly much lower than that of the VJM06, but that is dictated by the regulations. This means that the VJM07 will be re-submitted for its crash tests at the Cranfield Impact Centre at some point between Jerez and the opening race of the year in Melbourne, Australia. The car like all 2014 designs will require additional cooling, and the centre line gills evident on all recent Force India’s are again apparent, although seemingly a bit larger.
The nose of the VJM07 is similar in concept to others seen along the pit lane this season, with the unsightly low frontal crash structure very evident. A look at the sidepod shape and the undercut, the turning vanes appear to largely be carry over components from 2013. This is typically the location of the transmission oil cooler but the heat exchanger seems larger than normal, however the gearbox itself is larger than in previous years. A look at the diffuser of the car reveals many intricate details, note the floor shape around the rear wheel and the shrouded driveshaft. The rear wing endplate features the now standard serrated base and has twin slits toward the leading edge. The upper wishbone outer pickup point on the rear suspension is highly distinctive, and worth further investigation.
During the first test the Force India was fitted with a sensor array to monitor the air flow in the wake of the front wing, suspension and wheel. At the second test Force India replaced the turning vanes on top of the side pod with small flow conditioners. Before the race Force India changed the low pressure fuel pump output configuration on both cars. At Melbourne we get a first chance to look under the skin of the Force India, albeit in an incomplete state, the front bulkhead is very pain with a small opening for the master cylinders, the torsion bars are also clear to see. 11 Perez: Rear brake friction material, Gearbox hydraulic manifold, Parameters for gearbox hydraulic manifold change, Disable faulty backup brake pressure sensor.
In Malaysia there was a chance to get a look under the bodywork of the VJM07 which could be one of the stronger cars of this season.
Looking at the front bulkhead of the VJM07, most of the expected details are evident, the torsion bars are clear to see near the top edge of the chassis, the cir clips holding them in place are just visible.
The white master cylinders are mounted to the front of the power steering rack (the silver part in the centre of the bulkhead).
The front wing remains largely unchanged since the cars roll out at Jerez, but this image shows some of the smaller details not normally noticeable. The upright is almost never seen in this form as it is usually covered in many aerodynamic and braking elements (above). Force India buys its gearbox from McLaren, here the eight speed carbon fibre design can be seen from the rear with the rear crash structure closest to the camera. The sheer amount of heat shielding is clear the car has a second skin of bodywork with air having passed through the radiator ducts not directly passing over any other internal components. On the roll hoop there are two inlets, one feeds the internal combustion engine whilst the other duct feeds the gearbox oil cooler as can clearly be seen above. With the ducting and heat shedding removed however the installation of the power unit is clearer (above).
A nice look at the rear wing support and how it mounts to both the transmission casing and the wing itself. Sam grew up in South London within sight of the long abandoned Crystal Palace Race Circuit, yet found himself on work experience in the loom shop at Williams F1 aged 16. Collins has written for Motorsport News, Autosport, Model Collector, Speed TV, 750 Bulletin, Rafahiya and a number of others. As a driver Collins has competed in stockcar racing, Formula Vee, stage and road rallying as well as many local events. Racecar Engineering starts its Le Mans coverage with a detailed look at the 2016 Porsche 919 hybrid, and Peter Wright talks to Alex Hitzinger about the development of the V4 engine at the heart of the championship-winning car. One question that has dominated the world of Formula One is not how to fix qualifying, it is more who wants it changed. Microsoft Project Server is an extremely valuable application for companies seeking to engage in enterprise project management and project team collaboration.
A project is an enterprise project when you create the project schedule using Microsoft Project Professional while connected to Project Server with Enterprise Features enabled and you import the project to the enterprise using the Import Project to Enterprise wizard.
A resource is an enterprise resource when it is either created in the Enterprise Resource Pool using the Microsoft Project Professional client while connected to Project Server with Enterprise Features enabled or when the resource is imported into the Enterprise Resource Pool using the Import Resource to Enterprise Wizard in Microsoft Project Professional.
The centralized enterprise resource pool is key and required in order to implement the advanced resource management functionality in Project Server. At the heart of Project Server is the cyclical assignment and update process between project managers and team members. In addition to the core communication between project managers, project team members, and the leadership team, Project Server provides additional features for communication and collaboration. Each time a new project is saved in the Project Server database, the system optionally provisions a new project workspace on the server running Windows SharePoint Services (WSS). Project Server offers a Portfolio Modeler Tool for portfolio analysis that allows you to perform basic what-if analysis for such things as staffing changes in a single project or across a portfolio of projects.
PPM implementations with a strong governance structure will be more likely to be accepted and to work. Few executives will take the time to login to your PPM tool much less navigate through reports or search through data.
Most project management methodologies anticipate project difficulties and provide monitoring and controlling processes for change, issues, and problem management.
Economic cycles and business issues can impact the project portfolio both positively and negatively. Project portfolio management can be a tremendous discipline for management and the leadership team. Of the many areas of benefit that SaaS provide to an organization, one of the most significant is time to value. As an attractive alternative to outlaying large amounts of budgetary funds, customers can roll out SaaS solutions to those needing the functionality with minimal involvement of the busy IT staff. Arguably, SaaS offers a less risky solution than traditional software installed on the IT infrastructure of the customer. Most SaaS vendors understand all too well that application data must be backed up religiously and that security is a top priority. Most customers of traditional installed software have very little ability to influence the development of new product features or to bring about changes and enhancements to quality of service. In addition to technology and operational benefits, SaaS offers many companies the financial benefit of eliminating the capital expense associated with new application deployments. Often times, business units within a company have interim solution needs such as product launches, new office openings, organizational transitions, and business development initiatives.
Reaching long-term business goals often requires investing in the right business activities now.
An EPM solution can provide visibility into your project portfolio for monitoring performance, visualizing trends, and identifying business gaps. Project organizations are increasingly standardizing their processes to improve operational efficiencies, increase cross functional teamwork, and more effectively manage projects of different types and sizes. Customer satisfaction often is more than finishing projects on time, within budget, and within scope.
As businesses become more complex and geographically diverse, structured communication is vital to ensure teams share common goals and work together effectively.
Without understanding long-term workloads and resource capacity, companies can experience hiring-firing cycles.

An EPM solution fully leverages the existing technologies that most organizations already have in place, such as your enabling technologies, database, collaboration platforms, and desktop tools. The value of an investment depends on what types of improvements are gained and how quickly they're realized. In order to define and prioritize requirements, set improvement objectives early on in the PPM tool selection process. Before continuing with software selection, document the proposed project management process.
Use your project management processes to contextual show how the various software tools and applications are used throughout the entire project life cycle.
Process mapping will identify requirements critical to the success of the PPM software application.
Be mindful that there is a point of diminishing returns on the time that is spent in evaluating vendors and their product offerings. What it showed was a surprisingly evolutionary design, with many features carrying over directly from the 2013 car.
However Green is open that the nose fitted to the car in the image and that it will use in Jerez is not the final specification version. These have in the past been used for the gearbox oil cooler but in 2014 solutions such as this will be common place as the turbo charger and MGU’s all require significant cooling. The car was fully prepared for in track running rather than many cars which were shielded in some way or other. At the lower part of the bulkhead there are two small holes slightly offset to the drivers left, the purpose of these is not clear currently.
Note the Zircotec ceramic thermal barrier coating on the tailpipe, this is to protect the rear wing supports from the heat.
But in the pits we got a good look at the installation of the power unit and it highlighted one of the key challenges of the 2014 rulebook. The notable exception to this is the exhaust header which peeks through a window in the heat shield. The side pod duct is clear to see to the left of the image with the side impact structure also evident.
He has been heavily involved in the sport ever since, having gained a Nationa Diploma in Motorsport Engineering from East Surrey College (where he also built and raced a Group N Ford Fiesta) and studied Automotive Engineering at Oxford Brookes University. However, Project Server is not a simple tool, even for those who have used Project Server before and have experience using Microsoft Project Professional. When you are working on a project plan, you will want to save your project from time to time to protect against losing your work. In a Project Server environment, no other non-programmatic method of creating an enterprise project is possible because all projects are stored in the Project Server database. Resources that exist in local projects, but not the Enterprise Resource Pool, are termed a local resource, meaning that it is local to the project only. The resource pool contains resources and attributions that drive functionality like matching people to tasks.
Work assignments flow from the project plan to the project resources that perform the work and resources report progress data back to the plan.
The project workspace contains the WSS services customized specifically for Project Server such as document libraries, issues and risks, lists, discussions and surveys, which users access through the Project Web Access interface. While relational database structures are two dimensional, OLAP leverages data cubes which contain preprocessed three-dimensional data, time-phased and aggregated by business dimension. Senior management buy-in is required to achieve consensus, motivate, and to ensure adherence to the processes, tasks, and activities required to manage the project portfolio. Each organization is different in terms of its level of maturity and ability to handle change. Things to consider include: timing, decision style, organizational level, thresholds, decision criteria, and decision making. This can quickly become complex and requires software that can mathematically weight, balance, and optimize a portfolio in a seamless manner. Business dynamics and changing conditions prevail and require portfolio agility, the ability to stay current with your investment status and respond to changes. If different tools, reports, and data is being used for management and review, it won't take long for the support for the PPM tool to dissipate. They will no doubt want the PMO to have and use and master the PPM tool and its capabilities, but they themselves may or may not be so inclined. However, the resulting mindset for the project effort can often be singularly focused on getting the project back on track to the exclusion of any real consideration given to the fact that the project may very well be failing. Many of these new business opportunities and constraints can be identified and acted upon early to manage the portfolio and to confirm the integrity of the programs and projects of the portfolio.
It will facilitate the strategic alignment of projects and programs to the priorities of the business. Unlike traditional software that often requires complex installation, configuration, administration, and training, SaaS solutions only require a browser.
Typically, this is not a practical option for traditional software that requires onsite installation, configuration, and administrator training.
The cost of entry is very low compared to installing complex solutions across the entire company. Customers don't have to rely upon their IT department to install, configure, administer, and support the solution. And, instead of spending a considerable amount of money up front, customers pay for the software as they consume it and, typically, with no long term obligation or financial commitment. Customer IT departments are typically pulled in many directions and often can't be as focused on one solution. Your SaaS provider understands all too how that it is just as easy to switch relationships with SaaS providers as it is to enter into one. This not only is attractive to the CFO, but can also result in an acceleration of the project approval process because SaaS solutions are typically treated as operating expenses and simplify the corporate review process. Typically, the application solution needs of such short term endeavors cannot be easily met by the IT department or even focused on due to other priorities. Often times, a key issue that internal information technology organizations have to deal with and manage to is how best to replace a solution or technology.
With an Enterprise Project Management (EPM) tool, you can identify, prioritize, and select projects that best support your strategic objectives as well as align your resources accordingly. With these capabilities, you can make informed decisions on how to proceed with existing projects, make tradeoffs, and pursue new opportunities.
With an EPM solution, you can implement a common framework for project portfolio management guided by proven best practices, resulting in better management and control of projects as well as identification and implementation of process improvement opportunities. The delivery process must also engage the customer, involve the customer, and meet the customer's expectations. An EPM solution provides access to timely business-critical project information, so teams can share knowledge, better collaborate to complete tasks, and communicate progress effectively to manage risks and accommodate project changes. Businesses are increasingly relying upon project managers and are seeking ways to equip them with the tools they need to perform even better. Such cycles are inefficient and often result in higher overhead, lost knowledge, and very poor employee morale. Hence, you can get the most out of your existing investments in infrastructure, applications, and user skills, rather than incurring a duplication of investment and redundancy in capabilities. By enabling increased employee productivity, faster cycle times, reduced costs, reduced rework and work around, and improved resource and time management, an EPM solution provides a positive and sustainable return on investment. Applying good project management techniques in the effort will ensure that the solution you select best meets the requirements for which the solution is intended and justified. Does the current system or tool fail to provide the needed functionality for managing projects and resources?

The project manager for the PPM software selection project should document and gain agreement for both the current state as well as the desired state. Use process mapping to arrive at a full view of requirements including both the requirements to be addressed by the PPM application and the requirements to be addressed outside of the PPM application. The detailed set of requirements will result in identification of needs that can best be met by two to three vendors. Test each of the shortlisted vendor product offerings with data that best represents your business environment. The leading software solutions will address a majority of the business requirements of most customers and few customers will implement and use all of the features of the vendor's product. The central part of the underside of the upper element is coated with a thermal barrier, whilst the inner and trailing edges of the endplates are covered with Zircotec’s Thermohold Gold heat shield. A few years ago designing something like this would have been impossible let alone making it. After you complete task planning, you can then begin the resource management process and build a team for your project. Features native to Project Server include Status Reports, Automated Alerts and Reminders, To Do Lists, Outlook Integration, Task Delegation, and Ad hoc Reporting.
Without senior management participation, project portfolio management doesn't work and you are likely to end up with, or return to, a squeaky wheel gets the grease mindset for those involved.
Understanding each of these areas will help structure an effective governance process for the organization. In selecting PPM tools, organizations should look not only at the breadth of functionality the tools offer, but also at the vendora€™s experience in PPM.
Also prevalent can be legacy attitudes, behaviors, and quiet dissension from those that fared well under the old system. Conversely, if the PPM tool is used as the driver of portfolio management operations, then all involved will get and stay on board. Whether within your PPM tool or external to it, maintain high-level executive summary dashboards that serve to both provide an executive overview of the status of the top projects of the portfolio and to provide direct access to the appropriate area of the PPM tool where useful reports and data can be immediately accessed. Be open to the possibility that the project effort could be failing and should be scrubbed from the portfolio. Being continually aware of and acting upon these business opportunities and constraints will ensure the project portfolio is balanced and optimized. However, there will come times when the business intuition and market instinct of the CEO and the top tier executives will seemingly compromise the portfolio management process and available metrics.
This enables the organization to quickly go live resulting in faster realization of benefits.
But with Saas, such trial periods can be a vital and valuable way to assess, prototype, and gain consensus on the best solution to select and implementation approach to take.
Hence, customers can rest assured their data security is probably better with a hosted solution, not worse.
As a customer of a SaaS solution, you will have a much greater opportunity to influence product and service quality via your ongoing relationship with your provider.
SaaS provides an easy and flexible alternative to meeting short term solution needs as SaaS offerings can be easily acquired, used, and terminated when no longer needed. And, in addition to the technical and application transition considerations are the people considerations such as no longer needing or being able use resources that were dedicated to supporting the solution. And, by routinely evaluating and adjusting the project portfolio, you can ensure continuous alignment with your business objectives. Making accurate decisions quickly can be of tremendous business value and is a key consideration in justifying an EPM tool for the organization. An EPM solution enables you to ensure a high level of integrity to the project delivery process. With an EPM Solution, project managers, project team members, and the leadership team can access the latest project information resulting in more efficient time management, better communication and decision making, and increased accountability. An EPM Solution can help you more accurately assess resource commitments, deployment alternatives, and to deploy resources effectively across your organization.
By customizing and integrating an EPM solution with your line-of-business systems, you can get a comprehensive view of your organization's activities for better management and control. A rich in function solution that provides features that are not needed may not be better than a simpler solution or approach that meets the core needs of the organization.
If specific project management goals are not being met, perform root cause analysis to determine the required improvements in the current process. Too many vendors making the short list is an indication that requirements definition has not produced differentiating features and that any product can do. Used experienced staff that understands the how the products work to evaluate the capabilities of the software and results achieved of the product tests. Key considerations include their reputation, customer base, years in business, financial condition, and long term strategy. While the identification of all costs is important, too much focus on price can overshadow other vendor selection criteria such as how well the product meets the needs of all of the intended users, how well it works with your existing architecture, and the extent to which it can be easily and effectively used in support of the project mix of your PMO.
Therefore, you save it first, and publish your project only when you believe that it contains enough information that will make it useful to other viewers of the project plan on Project Server.
In implementing PPM, seek to identify your strengths and weaknesses, use a proof of concept, and roll out PPM with toleration for information that is not perfect. With the evolving market for PPM tools and solutions, vendors who have the most implementation experience are the ones who are likely to have the most sophisticated and scalable solutions.
Hence, there always needs to be a certain degree of flexibility and understanding that no matter how regimented the process is made to be, certain data points and judgments might very well fall outside of the process to no discredit of all those involved. With SaaS, these resources work for the vendor, not customer, making it much easier for the customer make solution decisions without having to worry able staffing consequences.
The end results are project plans that reflect realistic schedules, resource requirements, and budgets. The end results is having the right people on the right projects at the right time for optimized delivery.
Likewise, a simple solution might not provide long term viability as the organization matures.
This will keep the software evaluation and selection process on track and aligned to business needs, rather than vendor software bells and whistles. Until such time as the project management process has been thoroughly documented, hold off on further PPM software selection activities. Seek to discuss the performance of the vendor and their offering with at least three customer references. In fact, embrace them, as they can lead to an understanding and resolution of those things in the process that led to the problem in the first place. Hence, so you can set, communicate, and meet achievable milestones for more consistent project delivery and higher levels of customer satisfaction. Use project management techniques to ensure focus is placed on needs and requirements as opposed to vendor bells and whistles. The first two problems are more easily addressed from a tool perspective, whereas the third is more problematic. If the vendor and their product were successfully implemented at organizations similar to your own, then you can expect a similar success.
If processes are flawed or non-existent, implementation of complex software will not resolve them problem; rather it will add to it.
