Integrated Vision for Program/Project Management & Execution (PPME) Excellence at NASA Glenn Research Center GRC Center Governance Established Structure Operating Rigorous Cadence Processes (Monthly Reviews, PPBE, Milestone (GLPR, GLWI, Calendar) HBK, etc) Space Flight Systems Portfolio Execution Metrics Standardized (EVM, Budget Tools Execution, (PPME Toolkit) Procurement Execution, etc) Trained Proficient Staff Focus of this (PMs, Resource Analysts, Schedulers) presentationGlenn Research Center at Lewis Field http://pmtoolkit.grc.nasa.gov
The PPME Toolkit is a web- based one-stop working environment developed to facilitate rigorous, compliant, life cycle-based: - Proposal Development - Project Planning - Project Execution - Project Control & ReportingGlenn Research Center at Lewis Field http://pmtoolkit.grc.nasa.gov
The Toolkit aims to bring GRC- level Process Requirements (GLPRs) “to life” by pulling the content out of the document and serving up the process flows and templates via a mouse click.Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field http://pmtoolkit.grc.nasa.gov
