Project Management System

Description

A tool to be used for managing all stages of the project process, including:

  • Dissemination of information about projects, including proposals, current state, and previous history.
  • Tracking of project progress, including identification of late projects.
  • The ability for users to comment on projects.
  • The generation of various summaries, suitable for managing the overall project process.

It is important that the tool is easy and lightweight to use, at the same time as providing the necessary information.

Deliverables

Software and documentation.

Customer

The convenor of the Development Meeting.

Case

The remit of the Development Meeting is to manage development projects, and to make this process transparent and accessible to users. It is not possible to do this efficiently without some supporting automation.

Dependencies

No dependencies on any existing projects.

Management

Propose that it be managed by User Support Unit Manager (Ken Dawson)

Resources

The initial evaluation requires a good understanding of the project requirements and an ability to download and evaluate potential software. If the evaluation indicates that some local software development is required, then software development skills will be necessary. 2-3 person-weeks are estimated as necessary for the initial requirements gathering and evaluation phase. Implementation effort cannot be estimated until this is complete.

Plan

  1. Requirements capture (DevMeetManageSoftwareRequirements).
  2. Investigation of potential existing candidate packages.
  3. Recommendations to use imported package and/or develop local software.
  4. Possible software development.
  5. Production system implementation.
  6. Evaluation in production and possible refinement.

Priority

High.
