To obtain this data, it's necessary the involvement in several areas of FCC S.A., such as Operation, Management, Laboratory, Process, Project, Logistics, Sales, Development of Products and Marketing.
ProFIT shall not replace the existing processes as the use of the methodology of the Project Management Institute (PMI ) in the projects area, otherwise, it integrates and complements them, in a way to reach its major aim: speed up launching of new and promissory products and improves the competitive advantage of FCC S.A. in the market.
