Management tools & Engineering Economy

A new generation of management tools.

Competitiveness can be drastically enhanced

The possibilities for increased competitiveness lie in the uncertain factors - and see them early.

The Lichtenberg Principle can be used to handle these factors in a detailed, controlled and scientifically manner.

  • Intelligence and intuition are applied in a controlled manner.
  • Expert evaluations are implemented with accuracy according to a scientific procedure.
  • Together with a consistent top-down procedure this ensures that you work with the decisive factors.

Budget overruns and delays can be eliminated

This Principle is a fundamental tool in Engineering Economy:

  • Integrates cost estimates with risk analysis and budgetary control.
  • Cost estimates are supplied with proper allowance for unpredictable situations.
  • Schedules are also supplied with proper allowance for unpredictable situations.
  • These results are thoroughly documented.

Transition from sales to production is highly improved.

Misunderstandings and insufficient information between these two parties are avoided using the Successive principle. It further qualifies the plan and related budget.

Strategic analyses with higher accuracy

The Lichtenberg Principle takes advantage of intelligence and intuition as a strategic management tool.

  • Intelligence and intuition is used in a controlled scientifically based manner. A high efficiency is ensured through a consistent focus on the key issues.

Case of the month

Following an earthquake in North Africa a Danish contracting company entered an international competition for reconstruction works. This part of the reconstruction programme was to deliver 1000 single-family houses ready for occupancy before the winter: an extremely tight deadline with heavy daily penalties for overruns. Using the Successive Principle to verify the positive effect of a creative planning, the company was awarded the contract and met the deadline.
