Vehicle Programme Management

The MIRA Programme Management Process (PMP) has evolved from historical MIRA business and market experiences, and commonly used product development systems in the automotive industry. It is supported by a series of controlled processes that encompass change and configuration control, safety, risk and issues management, cost management, design and quality assurance, earned value management, and supply chain management.

The MIRA programme management process (PMP) is scalable to ensure that the necessary levels of control can be applied without overburdening the programme or project.

Key to the MIRA Programme Management Process (PMP) are the formal gateway reviews, which are opportunities for the business, the programme and the customer to ensure appropriate progress towards the achievement of cost, schedule and performance targets, to understand and concur the risks and mitigation plans, and to redirect programme activity as appropriate.

Gateway reviews are aligned to completion dates of logical workstreams, particularly where there is a movement from one functional workstream to another on the critical path, or where the subsequent programme phase has an impact on revenue or expenditure, or has significant cost and/or resource commitments in its own right. These are also logical points in the programme where the business case can be reconfirmed, adjusted, or validated.

MIRA offers a programme management capability that will meet the most stringent customer expectation, whilst facilitating the successful delivery of programmes and projects to cost, schedule and performance targets.

    Functional safety is no longer limited to the traditional view of product design, but now encompasses the assessment and management of risks inherent in organisational structures, process definitions, technical publications, personnel, training, and deployment scenarios.


  • Programme Systems Integration

    Having specialist subject matter expertise in a wide range of automotive, aerospace, rail, industrial, and defence engineering systems, it is only to be expected that MIRA can provide a comprehensive systems integration service, as independent integrators or as part of turnkey programme provision.
