Project Management

Mars International is committed to your success!    We assign a Project Manager from our Custom Fashion Accessories Group to lead and execute each fashion design project plan− from first line of contact until the product is released to production.  The Project Manager coordinates, manages, and monitors the day to day activities to guarantee the project progresses as planned.

Interactive project management and document management systems assist in managing and monitoring the following:

  • Schedules
  • Engineering resources
  • Cost and budgets
  • Communication and status
  • Controlled document management
  • Risk analysis and management

Our gated new product development process divides the project into phases.  Each phase must pass through a review gate where the scope of work, budget, and timelines are examined, and approvals received.  A detailed project plan and the phase-gate requirements and acceptance criteria are established at a Design Kickoff Meeting with representatives from the customer, design, tooling, and manufacturing.  The phases defined depend upon the scope of each project and might include:

  • Assessment
  • Concept
  • Design
  • Release to manufacturing
  • First article inspection
  • Release to production

These procedures ensure accuracy and completeness throughout the course of bringing new products to market.  Our project management approach has proven successful for countless projects undertaken by Mars International.  Our comprehensive services, delivered through ISO 9001:2008 certified procedures, ensure total quality management through every phase of the project.

Let our sophisticated processes and accomplished people assist you in making your next product development a success!
