Design project management

Design Project Management

  • Design Project Managers

    • Identify tasks

    • Make and update plans

      • Sequence tasks

      • Allocate time

      • Allocate People and Resources

    • Monitor and report progress


Six steps in project planning

Six Steps in Project Planning

  • Step-I: Identify tasks

  • Step-II: State task objectives and outcomes

  • Step-III: Estimate time and personnel

    • Hofstadter’s law: “It always takes longer than you expect even if you take Hofstadter’s law into account”.

    • Who is involved, and how long it takes


Planning

Planning

  • Step-IV: Develop a sequence for the tasks

    • Easiest method is a Gantt chart

  • Step-V: Estimate costs, times, resources

  • Step-VI: Evaluate and manage Risks


Tasks

Tasks

  • What is a Task? (in the context of design project)

    • An activity that produces a specific result useful to project progress. Do not include

      • The means of accomplishing tasks.

      • Tasks unrelated to the project.

      • Tasks with no specific outcomes or deadlines

      • Anything that is not clearly defined


Tasks1

Tasks

  • Not tasks

    • Arranging a meeting (means)

    • Having a meeting to discuss concepts (means)

    • Picking up pizza for the meeting (unrelated to project)

    • Research shock absorbers (Vague - no specific outcome)

  • Tasks

    • Developing pros and cons for 3 concepts

    • Evaluating and selecting the best concept

    • Picking up shock absorbers from shop

    • Creating a list of 3 shock absorber technologies


  • Tasks2

    Tasks

    • Task clarification activity

    Information Needed to Complete

    TASK

    Clearly Defined Deliverables

    Means to Accomplish

    Master plan

    Master Plan

    • Every design project has a master plan with the main design process tasks*:

      • Product Design Specifications

      • External Search

      • Internal Search

      • Concept Evaluation and Selection

      • Detail Design

      • Prototyping and Testing

      • Documentation

        * You can add “Project Plan” as the first step of the design process


    Master plan1

    Master Plan

    • Often some other milestones are added to the master plan

      • PDS Design Review and Report (1-15-2013)

      • External Search

      • Internal Search

      • Concept Evaluation and Selection

      • Final Concept Design Review and Report (3-1-2013)

      • Detail Design

      • Prototyping and Testing

      • 1st Prototype test and evaluation (5-1-2011)

      • Design Review and Prototype Evaluation Review (5-15-2013)

    • PDS-related Tasks

      • Customer identification

      • Customer interviews

      • Development of PDS criteria and priorities

      • Defining engineering specifications (metrics)

    • Tasks are defined by the team and usually include at least the following 5Ws:

      • What is the task

      • Who is going to do it

      • By When

      • In What format the results are to be reported

      • Why


    Task lists1

    Task Lists

    • Task list also includes:

      • How it is done

      • How it is paid for

      • Who can assist with the task

      • Risk Assessment (What if scenarios)
