End to End Project Management

For every submarine cable project, HMN Tech sets up project management team of professional personnel to manage internal and subcontracted resources. Single point communication is developed between project team and our customer. We ensure delivery time and quality by using professional techniques and organization.    

                                                   Typical Project Management Team Architecture

The project team is composed of a Project Director, a Project Manager, a Project Assistant, and a Marine Installation Supervisor. The objectives and responsibilities of the project management team are to provide project management and marine installation planning, and to offer project management for turnkey project tasks. This includes the following management areas:

Project Time Management     


The Plan of Work is an important factor in HMN Tech’s project management. We use Microsoft Project (2013) to create a Gantt chart that indicates project activities, sequence, resources, start/end/duration time, and so on. Project team update delivery plan as project proceeds and summarize the managing effect to keep the actual duration within plan.
