The work is performed at Forsmark Group AB as a final step in the Bachelor of
Science program in nuclear engineering at the University of Uppsala in 2013.
The work is part of an ongoing process of streamlining project system model FKA.
Streamlining the project model is an important aspect that affects all large
companies that somehow have a project governing body when there is much
financial resources to save. Although the quality of the projects is positively
affected by efficiency
The aim is to find possible common weaknesses and strengths of the project system
by interviewing a number of project managers, and using the systems in place
examine the model.
As part of the work also includes examining what project managers have to adjust to
the newly implemented system VPMM, and other newly introduced elements that
have been added to improve the efficiency in the future
Project System is a complex system that is influenced by many different parameters
and participating individuals' attitude and personality. But then small changes in the
model could have major economic consequences.
The thesis has generated results that show common weaknesses among the various
projects and their project managers' general opinions about the project model. It also
presents some possible solutions based on own thoughts and those interviewed
objects suggestions and comments.
