This document summarizes and describes the events, plans, and actions that occurred between 2018 and 2021 in Trane’s Monterrey plant to deploy a new process to manage the program for cost reduction of direct material through engineering changes (further referred to as VAVE) of the Compressors Strategic Business Unit (SBU). By improving the Program Management process, this project intends to secure a reliable method of coming up with, developing, implementing, and following up on direct material cost reduction projects and the resource and stakeholder communications management associated with them. I worked with current and new Trane standards and procedures, company-wide lessons learned, best practices, publicly available benchmarks, and literature authored by Subject Matter Experts to redesign this process. To improve the overall process, specific changes were made in communication channels, tools, and cadences, awareness of a need for diligent resource management was raised, the flow of projects from ideation to implementation was laid out, the groundwork for perpetual program planning was set, training for a project management able group was planned, and the framework for efficiency and effectivity improvement for the program was agreed upon. The output of this project was recorded on Trane standard documents that will serve as a guideline for both project and program management in the future. This project's outcome was approved and accepted by Trane’s stakeholders and, if necessary, will continue evolving and adapting to new conditions and demands.
