ITC505 Assignment 3

Introduction

The project of developing the online mobile application for Stud Farm is formed for aligning and integrating the management of the works. The major factors for defining the works of application development includes the designing and development principles. The integration would also ensure the management of the works for enduring the effective identification of the works. The mobile application would be marked with the considerate alignment of the processes. The following is a project charter document defined for integrating the formation of the specific and effective alignment of the information. The document would highlight the scope, risk, timeline, budget, and other elements of project management for easing the works and aligning it effectively. The documentation would allow the effective management of the works for listing the progress management.

Part One:

MOV - Measurable Organisational Value
MOV analysis is done for evaluating the works for defining the management of the works. The easing of the works would be managed for developing the influence of the factors for defining and managing the continuation of the works. The integration of the works would be marked for the alignment and development of the facilities and aligning the management of the operations. The MOV factors for Strategy, Customer, Financial, Operational, and Social. The effective alignment would also ensure the speculation and management of processes.
• Identify the desired area of impact - Rank the following areas in terms of importance: Strategy / Customer / Financial / Operational / Social

Strategy: The developed strategy plays a significant role for integrating the management of the operations and it has significant role for the project of Development of Mobile Application for Stud Farm. It holds the 4th Position.

Customer: The influence of the customers is very high for the project of Development of Mobile Application for Stud Farm as the product would be used by the customers in the end. It holds the 2nd Position.

Financial: The financial prospects of the company and project of Development of Mobile Application for Stud Farm holds an integral role and it is crucial to keep the value high for the alignment of the works. It holds the 1st Position.

Operational: The operational work alignment is also integral for the realisation of the works and defining the role for effectively managing the continuation of the processes. The operational function holds an integral value for defining the works. It holds the 3rd Position.

Social: The social factors play a no significant role for the project of Development of Mobile Application for Stud Farm as there is possibility that the information alignment would be successful for the business point of view. It holds the 5th Position.


  • With reference to your project, identify one or two of the following types of value:
    • Better – The completion of the project of Development of Mobile Application for Stud Farm would help in easing the processes of farming and equipment management for the farmers. The completion would better the situation for the operations.
    • Faster – The overall time required for the farming and equipment managing would be decreased with the integration of the outcomes of the project of Development of Mobile Application for Stud Farm.
    • Cheaper – The cost expenses on the works and resources would be decreased with the implication of the project of Development of Mobile Application for Stud Farm and its final deliverable.
    • Develop an appropriate metric –

Part Five:

Quality Management Plan. It should include:
• A short statement that reflects your team’s philosophy or objective for ensuring that you deliver a quality system to your client.

The scope of the project explains that All work would be completed in time, Quality factors would assist in work, and Scope of the project would help in alignment
• Develop and describe the following that your project team could implement to ensure quality;

  • A set of verification activities: Testing methods like alpha testing, beta testing, and simulation
  • A set of validation activities: Affective work function management for aligning innovative work function

Part Six:

  1. To prepare for this task, you will be required to provide an annotated bibliography.

According to Kerzner and Kerzner (2017), the task under centre concerns the structure, improvement, just as usage of progress the board activity to change the organization's quality administration framework from that of heritage procedures to Six Sigma consistent on at the hierarchical dimension. This task was conceptualized and started to address the organization's proceeded with cost wasteful aspects, quality deformities, and consumer loyalty. The organization is embraced the undertaking inside with an exceptional work bunch doled out as the task supervisory group containing a venture director and a group of three individuals answering to the venture chief.

The study of Fleming and Koppelman (2016) proves that the scope the executives inside any undertaking speaks to the key part concerning task arranging and the equivalent basically portrays the manners by which scope will get characterized, reasonably created, and viably checked/controlled/approved. The different procedures inside degree arranging involve the handled to setting up the announcement of the undertaking extension, forms which will empower in general advancement of nitty gritty WBS by method for degree articulation settled, process which will set up the manners by which scope gauge will be affirmed just as kept up, lastly process which will determine the manners by which there will be formal acknowledgment concerning how the task expectations that are finished will be gotten.

Larson and Gray (2017), have pointed out that the task will involve structure, advancement, just as execution of progress the executives activity to change the organization's quality administration framework from that of heritage procedures to Six Sigma agreeable on at the authoritative dimension and the venture results will make the inside procedures to be cost proficient, improve imperfection rates, and upgrade consumer loyalty.

  1. Develop a closure checklist that the project team will use to ensure that the project has been closed properly.
  2. Develop a project evaluation –outline and discuss how your project’s MOV will be evaluated.
  • All work would be completed in time
  • Quality factors would assist in work
  • Scope of the project would help in alignment

Conclusion

The developed assignment was a project charter document defined for integrating the formation of the specific and effective alignment of the information. The project of developing the online mobile application for Stud Farm was formed for aligning and integrating the management of the works. The document had highlight the scope, risk, timeline, budget, and other elements of project management for easing the works and aligning it effectively. The documentation had allow the effective management of the works for listing the progress management. The major factors for defining the works of application development includes the designing and development principles.
