This year's NJ/PMI Project of the Year winner is Merck-Medco’s “Omega Automated Pharmacy Project.” Merck-Medco is the nation's leading pharmacy benefits manager. An independently managed subsidiary of Merck & Co. Inc., it serves the needs of more than 65 million people, nearly one in four Americans. The objective of the Omega Automated Pharmacy Project was to build an automated pharmacy in Willingboro, NJ, which, when fully staffed in 2003, will be the world's largest pharmacy -- dispensing 780,000 prescriptions a week.  The planned criteria for December 2001 deliverables were based on the companies four “pillars of performance:” Quality, Service, Productivity and Safety. The project team will discuss how they utilized the principals of the PMBOK to exceed their customer’s expectations as well as delivering the project ahead of schedule and under budget. 

Merck-Medco's Engineering Department resides in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey.  The project was managed by Wayne Rice, the overall Project Manager. The Project Team consisted of an additional twelve individuals.
