Project Management Strategy
As the project is focussed on specific deliverables, the project is organised in work packages (WP). Each WP provides deliverables within a specific field of research (aimed innovations) or project goal. The objectives of these WPs’ and the relationships between them are shown in the figure below:
WP teams will work independently from each other, where deliverables contribute to other WP’s coordination is essential. A system engineering approach has been applied to make a progress analysis from requirements to evaluation possible.
The management structure of AUTOMAIN comprises three levels of decision-making: strategic, executive and technical (the day-to-day level of individual work packages). External feedback from outside experts and the EC Project Officer will be managed through the Strategic and Executive levels.
