The PDT uses the information to plan suitable performance recognition factor at the achievement of each project component. • Communication matrix- track project performance by project component and WBS element. It comprises of WBS codes, WBS titles, sub-products, and Uniform Filing System location numbers. It also includes the location where sub-products are filed in the Project History File (PHF). A finished communication matrix consists of information about producer, receiver, transmittal method and submitted date.
First, to develop a human resource management plan for a project, it is crucial to start by identifying and documenting the roles, required skills, and work responsibilities of the project team. This planning process will often include the drafting of an organizational chart to detail, in writing, the specific roles and responsibilities for each team member and will become the project staffing management plan (Schwalbe, 2014, pp. 363-393). Once there is an understanding of the project staffing needs the task moves to the next process; acquiring the
Revision # Date of Release Summary of Changes v1 12/3/2013 Initial Release v2 12/5/2013 Major revisions made. Incorporated Risk Register into the document. Document Maintenance - This document will be reviewed and updated as needed, as the project proceeds through each phase of the system development life cycle. This document contains a revision history log. When changes occur, the document’s revision history log will reflect an updated version number as well as the date, and the change description.
a. Initiating During this process the initial scope is defined, the initial budget is proposed, the project manager is selected, the sponsor of the project is determined, a business case is developed. It is during this process that a decision is made as to whether the project should be continued or canceled. b. Planning This process group determines the project plan of the overall project and the documentation of the project.
It forms the basis of a project document formation called feasible study that determines the ‘technical, economic, financial, social, institutional’ aspects of the project (Hira and Parfitt, 2004). 3. Appraisal The project appraisal phase includes a decision on the timeline of the project, budget estimation and the expected outcome of the project. It requires the submission of all these in the form of documents to the stakeholders responsible for funding the project. It serves as the basis to the loan agreements for the project
A schedule feasibility analysis tries to determine if the proposed development time line is practical. This is the foundation for the traditional systems development life cycle. • Systems analysis: Refines project goals into defined functions and operation of the intended application. Analyzes end-user information needs. This stage uses many tools and techniques including requirements gathering, structured analysis, and computer-aided systems engineering tools.
Quality Planning – As a first step to developing the QP, we will undertake quality planning. Quality planning will have as its objectives the identification of quality specifications and of how to meet these specifications. To accomplish these objectives, we will analyze inputs from which to derive a quality baseline and then produce artifacts that will support the execution of the QP. We will undertake quality planning immediately after award, in concurrence with other project planning activities. Quality planning activities and milestones will be incorporated into the overall project management plan.
The end users of the system under development will be involved in reviewing the output of each phase to ensure the system is being built to deliver the needed functionality. The subcomponents that play a role in the project need to fulfill some certain requirements. These requirements come out from the end user recommendations, and the features that will be available in the new version. The initial Planning Phase will produce an outline of the project. Serving as the basis for acquiring the resources needed to achieve our definitive goal.
In the following outline, a more in-depth background of how these processes will assist and promote the success of the team and specific tasks and budgeting constraints. A thorough description of how the project will be initiated will be discussed, along with a project plan for moving the data center with budget and time constraints considered. An inclusive plan is developed that incorporates the five process areas as well as the nine knowledge areas. These knowledge areas include: project integration, scope management, time management, cost management, quality management, human resources management, communications management, risk management, and procurement. In addition, a description of how the team will monitor and control the plan after execution and the methods that may be utilized to close the project will be reviewed.
