Albany Engineered Composites

Using Critical Chain to develop and validate new technologies

Feedback from Albany Engineered Composites after less than a year using Critical Chain


With multiple engineering projects running simultaneously within an international team, and therefore changing priorities and limited resources, when launching a critical project, it has become imperative to adopt a more effective approach to project management, understanding schedule risks and communicating progress with internal and external stakeholders.


Marris Consulting supported AEC in implementing Critical Chain Project Management on this strategic project, with the aim of meeting deadlines and accelerating the project. 

After around 6 months of implementation Phil McGrail, Senior Manager of AEC Global Projects, shares his experience with Critical Chain, what has been put in place and the first benefits already visible from this new approach.  


Satisfied and convinced that this is the right way to run their projects, the method has since been deployed on various company projects.


You can find the full testimonial in the video below, from the Critical Chain 2024 conference.
