2 Consider the following: Surely Project Management is a matter of common sense and a bit of organisation?“A project is like a well behaved child who misbehaves as soon as your back is turned”
3 Aim of a project The aim of the business is met The aim of the Specification is understoodAnd more importantly that the Project is planned, thought out and properly controlled to give it every chance of success.Many projects that fail are due to lack of either no methodology or poor Project Management skills.
4 Software Development Life Cycle InitiationFeasibilityAnalysis/ResearchDesignImplementation(Code/test)MaintenanceReview/EvaluationWithin this you have Planningand Tools and Techniques
5 Project Management Cycle: InitiationPlanningExecutingMonitoring and ControllingClosingThe five basic process groups
6 SDLC and PMLC go hand in hand: To ensure that the project has been properly:Planned (timeline, resources, contingencies)Monitored/Controlled (Resources, Cost, Time and Quality; including that the product is correct and it is the right product).This phase avoids slippage and ensures that contingencies are followed if needed
7 Balancing Act:The right product is delivered on time and on budget to meet the requirements.QualityIf you have no cost, then it is the resources available to you. People, hardware, software etcTimeCost/Resources
8 Tools and TechniquesScheduling tools such as Gantt Chart
9 What do I need for COMP2100/3100?Clear and concise discussion of project management approaches appropriate to the task.An initial schedule of sorts End of project scheduleWhat approach you took and whyHow did you use it (Phases and problems/solutions)
