I have an assignment to do regarding project management but... not sure how to really start fleshing it out as I have never done anything like this before. Any help would be great! In total this is 60 marks.
"Imagine you are the project manager of an industrial company and there is a need to develop an electronic system to control the lighting in a theatre. You are to oversee the research and development phase of the project. You know that a project of this type will involve the following work tasks:
- Project definition and specification.
- Formation of a team and allocation of work tasks.
- Draw up a time plan.
- Monitoring the work progress.
- Liaise with customer, production manager and marketing manager.
So, I don't need to actually design the system or any technical stuff. Just plan the process of the design? So... what? I really don't know where to begin!
For specifications, it would be things like 'needs to take mains supply - because that is what is readily available', and 'have options to add more lights later - because lighting systems often change' - is that the right kind of thing or..?
I'm lost :(
Thanks in advance!
