project management1
Project Management
  • Client relationship adult to adult throughout (initial meeting parent to child)
  • Communication almost daily email
  • Deliverables valid code, mockups, finished site working page, articles from blog reformatted
technical issues
Technical Issues
  • Not included at beginning Javascript, PHP, CMS
  • Now has Javascript only, triple constraint for PHP, CMS
  • Article pages (12+pages) reduced time and resources pooled from contact (PHP) forms to this (scope creep)
content image problems
Content/Image problems
  • Content given early however…
  • Didn’t anticipate formatting would be issue, images were supplied but lower quality
  • Images had to searched for home/article pages
  • Navigation formatting for 100% width issues (widescreen)
client issues
Client issues
  • Client was expected to go on vacation (early in project), handled by continuing overall layout ignoring content (bad idea)
  • MAJOR issue during FTP accidently erased other websites on server instead of updating just clients
  • All restored from backups (client site working now)
personal issues
Personal issues
  • Got lazy early on (content given early), forced me to rush at end working 4+ hours after class each time
  • Got wrapped up with minute details early on such as colouring/image positioning
time on task
Time on Task
  • Expected ~125 hours, Reality 160 hours
  • Due to content formating (was smallest required time in WBS ballooned to one of largest)
  • Resource pooling from advanced features (forms, social media interaction)
  • Early milestone were met
  • Initial design and RBA were done exactly on time
  • Content formatting later on caused later milestones to be pushed back
  • However all project was “completed” on time
what i learned
What I learned
  • Designer should ensure time is spent wisely
  • Don’t think you can finish in last week by rushing
  • Triple constraint will almost take place
  • Keep in touch regularly
  • Don’t freak out (ftp problem)
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help
  • Keep good relation with client for future projects

This is me as a cucumber
