Our plan calls for installing and implementing the new system within a 2 month period between February 1 st, and April 1 st. All items will be ordered on February 1 st. All items should be in our possession within 7 days.
There are four technicians available to work. The first project we will accomplish is to set up the server computers, copy over data, create the necessary groups and folders, apply group and user policies, and test the functionality of the new servers. We estimate this should take..
At the same time we order the equipment, we will hire Verizon to install 5 T1 lines. They say it will take 1month to install. Until Verizon has the T1 lines install we will set the new equipment up to work with the old system. Then we will set up, install, and test the 10 administrator computers, this should take only 1 day. Then we will set up, install, and test the 10 receptionist computers, this should take only 1 day.
Next we will setup, configure, and test the help desk computers in groups of 20 computers. While waiting for the T1 lines, we will kill disk all the old computer systems. When the T1 lines are installed we will begin by installing the new routers and converting and test the servers in the new system.
Then we will convert and test the Administration computers on the new system. Then the Receptionist computers Then the Help Desk computer Then install the new printers Last we will install the backup phones.
