Proj 586 Week 2: Project Charter/Scope

Week 2: Project Charter/Scope ProJ 586 Project Name| Construction of a new plant| Project Number| 001-001A| Project Manager| David Mulay| Prioritization| High| Owner(s)| Walter Seitz| Start Date:| April 18, 2011| Scheduled Completion Date:| June 30, 2012| Mission| The Purpose of this project is to increase overall sales by developing new products, increasing productivity and national presence and reducing dependence on equipment suppliers. | | Scope| The contract has a set budget if $2,750,000 by the project sponsor. The estimated budget for the project is $2,750,000 with a timeline of 1 year and three months.

Upon final completion of the project the extent will contain: 1. Manufacturing plant/building in Huntsville, AL 2. Installed equipment to effectively produce product 3. Recruiting division for managers, distribution, plant operators 4. Procured Equipment, Raw Material and Truck Fleet 5. Work and production permits| | Objectives| The Primary objective that dictates success is the creation of a fully operational plastics manufacturing plant, that has distribution capabilities and is completed by June 30th 2011under or equal to the budgeted amount of $2,750,000.

The mitigating factors that will state complete success are as follows * Select resources such as: Architect, Real Estate Consultant, and General Contractor * Recruit and Train Managers for Huntsville Plant * Create a Pre-Production and Production Plan * Create a Building Concept and Design * Procure Building Site, Permits, and Appropriate Approvals * Construct the Huntsville Plant Building * Landscaping on Site * Personnel Recruiting for Plant Operations * Procure Equipment, Raw Material and Truck Fleet * Install Equipment * Create Product Distribution Plan and Pre-Production Plan * Start Up Production and Distribution | | Assumptions| Success is derived from the assumptions that the procurement of materials is completed prior to the start date of April 18th 2011.

The associating permits needed to break ground in Huntsville are required prior to the start date. The initial assessment of the project budget and time frame is based around the terms of prior planning and procurement. | | Constraints| Many constraints can be mitigated but the few that cannot. The initial starting constraints applying to associating permits and state/federal regulations can offset the initial start date. In the initial weeks of ground breaking setting foundation for the structure can be offset by inclement weather. This process needs at least 2 weeks for compliant weather to complete the foundation. | | Time/Decision Points| | Decision point| Date| Title| Assessment|

Contracted work will be completed with a pay of 30% down 70% completion.

The life cycle of the construction fits the schedule of completion for 3 March 2011 allowing 4 months for overlap and extensions to include a similar budget analysis. | | User Acceptance Criteria/Quality| All user acceptances are based around the time constraint of construction. Variable outliers can be extended but are limited each section of the project is consecutive with minimal movement in time. All construction will be granted with a bonus in contingency with an inspection of the PM and site inspector. | | Major Risks| Major risks that hinder the success of the project are based around the timeline. All micro projects and milestones are consecutive to each other.

The largest variable within risk mitigation is the exterior construction. Risks can include but limited to: varance permits, weather, protesting, funds allocation, war, loss of materials, and human hazards and lawsuits/safety| | KEY STAKEHOLDERS| | Name| Project Core Team:| Steve PokorskiJoe DownsRhonda SmithMary Doonan | Subject Matter Experts (SME) (Include company & channel designations if applicable)| Steve Pokorski: Vice President of OperationsJoe Downs: Director of Plant EngineeringRhonda Smith: regional sales managerMary Doonan: marketing director| APPROVALS| Type Name| Signature| Date| Project Manager Approval:| | | Owner/Sponsor Approval:| | |
