    Project Management ProcessOverview

    /hen contractors develop plans for a building* one of the rst steps islaying a foundation. This is also a true for building proects using theProect ,anagement module. The hierarchical structuring of data servesas the foundation before the addition of actual proect data. The folloingis a suggested se$uence for setting up these structures3

    "et up the organizational brea!don structure &O'")* hich is thehierarchical arrangement of your companys management structure*either as roles or individuals.

    "etting up the O'" rst enables association of the

    responsible managers ith their areas of the P"8either nodes or proects8hen the P" is structured.

    9ser access and privileges to nodes and proectsithin the P" hierarchy are also implemented via a

    responsible O'". so the security proles that monitor data access by

    proect participants can be established early on inthe process.

    Once the O'" is established* the P" can beset up.

    (n P" can consist of multiple root nodes*hich enable particular types of proects to begrouped together* such as proect templates

    or high2ris! proects.

    Planning a project

    The rst step in proect management is to dene your proect.

    1. What is the scope of the or!; /hat activities ill ma!e up the proect and hat istheir relationship to each other; Youll also ant to identify the maor milestonesthat ill help you monitor the proects progress.

    ". What is the project duration# /hat are the dates hen the proect ill begin and

    end;$. What resources are a%ailable to the project# 'eyond labour* thin! about all the

    types of resources you ill re$uire.

    &. Who ill perform hat tas!s# %etermining your labour resources and theiravailable or!hours is a !ey part of building a successful proect. Youll need toplan for dontime and holidays and determine the regular or!ee! for varioussta:ng types.

    '. o much ill the project cost# /hat are the costs per resource; (re there anyhidden proect costs;

    . What is the estimated budget# stablishing a proect budget estimate in advancehelps you monitor possible cost overruns.

    !ontrolling a project

    Once you have built your proect and estimated yourbudgeting needs* you save this original plan as a baseline*or target schedule* to help you control the proect.

    ( baseline provides a solid point of reference as your schedulechanges over time.

    +t allos you to compare the original schedule to the current oneand identify signicant changes and develop contingency plans.

    You control a proect to !eep it heading in the right

    direction. Youll ant to trac! or! progress and costs*compare them to your baseline* and then recommendhat actions should be ta!en.
