Motorola Chooses AMS REALTIME Software for New Global Project Management
$5Million order standardizes approach to enable faster, more predictable
delivery of new products
CLIFTON, VA (June 17, 1998) -- Advanced Management Solutions
(AMS) has announced that Motorola has selected its AMS REALTIME™ software
to implement a new global project management system for its Semiconductor
Products Sector (SPS). Motorola has placed an order for $5-million
covering AMS REALTIME project management and resource management software
together with consulting and training services.
The new Motorola project management system is designed to provide
a global scan of all of the designs, projects and resources that are
committed to individual and product development projects within SPS.
This will provide superior management visibility and elimination of
any duplication of effort.
"To win in their markets, our customers need shorter, more predictable
delivery of new products and technologies," said Mike Zill, Director
of Information Gateway for Motorola SPS. "The new system will
allow us to plan and allocate resources more efficiently for every
project, bringing our products to market faster."
Motorola selected the AMS REALTIME software because it offered powerful
functionality, a consolidated view of work programs, integrated electronic
timesheets for automated resource tracking and work status information.
AMS REALTIME is also capable of operating on a variety of computer
platforms - including Windows, Macintosh, and Unix - which accommodates
all the protocols in use within Motorola.
Diane Angell, Chief Executive Officer with Advanced Management Solutions
commented, "Motorola is a world leader because of its commitment
to product excellence. We are delighted to be working with Motorola
to improve its capability to develop world-beating semiconductor products
- better, faster and at lower cost. This significant contract strengthens
Advanced Management Solution's position as a world leader in solutions
for enterprise-wide project and resource management."
The program is expected to be phased in over a three-year period.
Mike Zill noted, "The implementation of such a system will involve
changes in culture and the integration of new technology and methodologies.
We will work closely with AMS consultants to ensure a successful,
