The sky is the limit.

To what sense he can control the project it depends on what his Job description say’s as well as what the PIM say’s his reponsibilty’s are. (Back to good old procedure’s)

I think the limit is your own abilities

A planning engineer can be PM or PD and I see this happen all the time... In fact I am also a PM. So as a career, there is lots of possibility and it all depends on your ability.
