Deployment of MOM solutions is the last course within this MES/MOM Methodologies program, where it all comes together. Projects need a framework or methodology. Next to the traditional project management methodologies PRINCE2 and PMBOK, there are other options like Waterfall, Agile/Iterative, Scrum, Kanban, Critical Path Method, Critical Chain Project Management and LEAN. In this context, GAMP 5 provides valuable input as well. You need more than a new MOM product, you need skilled implementers too. Combining the best of both worlds by collaboration with suppliers and/or system integrators is key.
Multi-site roll-outs have additional challenges, but offer opportunities as well with respect template development, standardization, deployment scenarios and solution lifecycle.
