Publication explores adoption of value management systems in project for Brazilian Navy

In 2017, FGV was invited by the Brazilian Navy and the Defense Ministry’s Naval Project Management Company (EMGEPRON) to support the structuring of the procurement process, by means of a request for proposals, for four technologically complex military ships as part of the Tamandaré Class Frigate Program.

The project became a national point of reference for complex projects by bringing together a variety of innovative aspects, including a value-added management model for monitoring and controlling different activities. This methodology, widely used by military forces in many countries to monitor their complex projects, provides mechanisms that facilitate transparency and traceability of progress, as well as being an important factor for public accountability.

To report on the experience gained in this process, FGV Projetos, Fundação Getulio Vargas’ technical advisory arm, produced a publication that sets out the pioneering full adoption of this model in Brazil by the Brazilian Navy and EMGEPRON. It contextualizes the subject through interviews with process leaders and presents technical analyses of this method, in the form of two articles written by FGV and EMGEPRON professionals.

According to Professor Irapoan Cavalcanti, who is responsible for defense projects at FGV, “The Brazilian Navy, the Defense Ministry’s Naval Project Management Company (EMGEPRON) and FGV have worked together successfully on joint programs and strategic initiatives to contribute to national defense and the development of our country. The Tamandaré Class Frigate Program undoubtedly set the benchmark for the adoption of innovative aspects in highly complex projects.”

Sergio Gustavo Costa, the manager responsible for the project, said, “It was a very rewarding challenge to collaborate with the Brazilian Navy and EMGEPRON on a program that involved so many innovative solutions, including the adoption of value-added management systems. I’m sure that these solutions will help raise the level of process maturity and management skills not only in the Brazilian naval industry but also in major government contracts going forward.”

Maurício Gouvêa, coordinator of the project team and author of one of the articles in the publication, said, “As a professional in the field of management, I see that added-value management systems, especially those based on Standard EIA-748, can integrate planning and control processes in line with world-class practices for complex project management and governance. The precise analyses derived from applying these systems favor the transparency and traceability of information, thereby increasing the likely success rates of major projects in Brazil and directly mitigating risks inherent to the execution of these initiatives.”
