Title: Engineering Manager

Presentation Description

Enterprise Automation is an industrial automation consulting firm selling services in the form of projects. Of course that means billable engineers, deadlines, and inevitable resource conflicts. EA’s project management and staff utilization practices are tightly intertwined to ensure the engineering team is consistently profitable while meeting scope, budget, schedule, with a happy client for every project. This requires culture and tools. This presentation will cover EA’s journey that drove the evolution of their best practices with highlights on labor planning tools at the project and company level.
