In large-scale Maximo implementations, it is common that the main elements of the project are outsourced to one or more consulting companies. One of the key issues in such projects is to find a way to manage the different contractors. There are three main aspects that demand careful control: the costs, the schedule and the quality.
Independent appraisal of cost estimates provided by contractors or third-party developers and integrators.
Independent evaluation and monitoring of work programmes or project plans provided by contractors.
Independent examination of the quality of work being delivered by your appointed contractors.
