Project Plan

  • The Development Plan

    • The project plan is one of the first formal documents produced by the project team. It describes

      • How the project will be developed

      • How resources will be required

      • How the resources will be used

      • The timely provision of equipments and tools

      • Provision of contingency plan in the event that project risks materialize

      • Task designations


Software project development plan
Software Project Development Plan

  • Software development project plan

  • Other standards includes the IEEE standard 1058 which is called software project management plan

  • PMI’s project management plan


Project scheduling
Project Scheduling

  • Project Schedule

    • Activities

    • Resources especially people

    • The project schedule answers two basic planning questions

      • What and when

      • How:


Scheduling
Scheduling

  • What Activities and Milestones

    • List of activities and their expected time of implementation

      • Diagrams (e.g. PERT network diagrams)

      • Table

      • Charts (e.g. Gantt charts)

      • Graphs

    • All this present two important information

      • Activities

      • Time of implementation



Scheduling1
Scheduling the beginning of the project?

  • The HOW discussion includes the following

    • How risk will be handled

    • How the project will be organized

    • How reviews will be conducted

    • How standard will applied

    • What methodology will be used and

    • How the product will be tested.


Scheduling2
Scheduling the beginning of the project?

  • The Activity List

    • This is often developed with the work breakdown structure (WBS) table

    • The WBS breaks down all project activities to a much lower level, called work tasks.

    • A schedule list of activities contains the following information:

      • Activity ID, Activity name, Description, start date, completion date, dependency, and responsibility.

    • It is important that you two high priority activities don’t overlap.

  • Milestone and Baselines

    • Milestone are used as points of payment, measurement of progress on the project and for determining baselines.

    • IEEE definition of baseline includes “a formally agreed specification that then serves as the basis for further development”

      • Functional baseline: This document is the basis for all design and implementation, and in particularly it is the basis for system testing and acceptance.

Gantt charts
Gantt Charts the beginning of the project?

  • Do

    • Enable important schedule information to be grasped quickly

  • Do not

    • Does not provide information on the amount of resources required to complete each activity.


Pert chart
PERT Chart the beginning of the project?

  • PERT (Program Evaluation and Review Technique)

    • Used to plan project activities

    • And to monitor their performance

  • PERT

    • Can address two important issues

      • The need to identify dependences

      • The need to ensure that responsibilities for each activity has been assigned.

Scheduling hr
Scheduling HR the beginning of the project?

  • The most important and most valuable project resource is the development team (people)

  • The team size

    • The development team size is influenced by

      • # of activities

      • Intensity or complexity of the activities

      • Skill


Development team size

Scheduling resources
Scheduling Resources the beginning of the project?

  • Resources

    • Work place

    • Equipments

    • Vendors and subcontractors


Scheduling4
Scheduling the beginning of the project?

  • Monitoring and updating the schedule

    • It is not a static document

    • Period report


Customer perspective
Customer Perspective the beginning of the project?

  • The customer is in the center of a project scheduling

    • The customer is the most important project entity

    • One measure of project success is the degree of customer satisfaction

    • To promote customer satisfaction:

      • Honest communication

      • Continuous communication

      • Maintain technical quality

      • Make it easy to use

      • Understand that there are different types of customers
