Project Management

Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)

At Bastian, we train all of our Project Managers to utilize the Project Management framework as detailed in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). The PMBOK is the globally recognized standard for Project Management and is published and updated by the Project Management Institute (PMI). Bastian requires all of our Project Managers to be fluent in all aspects of the PMBOK.


Bastian recommends that you assign a local project manager to ensure an integrated effort in all areas of analysis, review, final design, installation, training, testing, and acceptance. Our extensive project management experience in material handling systems has shown that customer ownership and involvement are key factors in the successful implementation of such systems and Bastian's Project Mangers are the linchpin that will keep your project moving.


From managing the schedule to ensuring the quality of installation at your site, our Project Manager is your single point of contact. We minimize your risk and operational impact by providing a dedicated Project Manager on each and every project. By leveraging our experience in project management, we can look across the horizon and identify bottlenecks and proactively address each one to prevent problems before they surface which can save you time and money. We use extensive Gantt charts and check lists to ensure no steps are missed and there is an extremely high level of quality control. A partial listing of tasks that the Project Manager facilitates includes:

  • Developing your detailed project schedule
  • Verifying your system layout and taking field measurements
  • Creating your functional specification and operational documents
  • Monitoring the performance of your project based on schedule milestones
  • Providing a single point of contact who manages all communication and reporting activities between parties
