Performance Measurement and Management for Engineers

"Large infrastructural projects, technology and product development, manufacturing reconfiguration, and cloud computer conversion are just a few examples of activities that are now carried out in enterprises with increasing frequency. These activities are usually managed by engineers from various disciplines, yet they widely impact overall financial performance, exposure, and company value. In this context, it is mandatory to have managers who are capable of measuring weak signals from operations and stakeholders; and then knowing, as a consequence, the impact on the enterprise value"--Introduction.

In 1997, Congress, in the conference report, H.R. 105-271, to the FY1998 Energy and Water Development Appropriation Bill, directed the National Research Council (NRC) to carry out a series of assessments of project management at the Department of Energy (DOE). The final report in that series noted that DOE lacked an objective set of measures for assessing project management quality. The department set up a committee to develop performance measures and benchmarking procedures and asked the NRC for assistance in
