The manufacturing on time of tools as well as of prototypes and initial sample parts is one of the important objectives of the firm of Dömer. Accordingly for years a strict project controlling process on all the new tools in circulation is started on the issuing of an order. Here the project management is carried out under the charge of Dömer's technical management. Weekly status reports prepared by all departments and project meetings ensure high levels of adherence to due-dates for all orders. Through this system project delays can be detected at an early stage and the appropriate measures initiated. Similarly on request continuous comparison is carried out with our customers in respect of project status with the aid of the project plans.
