Jindal Vijayanagar Steel Limited (B): Installation of Corex-I and II
COREX, a new technology brought by Mr. Jindal, froze before going into live operations resulting in 10 month delay. This case discusses the project management monitoring methods used by them. Their use of Microsoft Project in place of Primavera is interesting. Before this, India did not have expertise in COREX. The case also discussed how to build project team when the local expertise is not available. The case also shows how much of monitoring methods discussed in books are practicable.
