CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
Project management establishments like
Springlight Technology, Treasure property& project management company,Novitia
consulting etc., these establishments require efficient and brilliant technique
and flexible system for proper management of all their operation. Their main
objective is to offer quality services in projects managementto individuals and
other company buying their service in a proper and cost-effective way. In recent
years, there has been a rapidgrowth in infrastructures and project executed in
the country, which in turn has created a need to build an application that will
address most of the issues address in this research work. This research work
will be of paramount importance to these sectors as it will be design to address
most of their challenges.
Project Management Software easily automates
the whole process of project creating, adding team member to the project,
allocating task and creating project milestones as well as setting time frame
for each project. System users are created by the system admin where each staff
is able to login in with the provided authorization and manage his/her account.
Clients are register to the system to view and input necessary details on his/her
project, the users/staff all form the project team member, where staff can be
added to as many project he/she so desire. The admin has the sole authority
over the system.
Chapter one introduces the research work and the problem
definition of the research, and to know the aim of this research work, research
justification tells us why it is important to research on this topic; it also
covers areas like scope and limitation of study which entails the boundary of
this work. Definition of terms gives summarize what each chapter entails.
1.3.0 PROBLEM DEFINITION
This research work was undertaken to
uncover some of the problems with conventional project management systems.
Where project team member meet on regularly basis to discuss the
progress made on the project,team members are not permitted to travel or engage
in activities outside the cities as work progress is review by physical
presence. Using these conventional method pose lots of constraint on team
member as no team member can focus on other business activities except these is
completed. Thereby slowing the growth of the establishment.
1.4.0 OBLECTIVE OF STUDY
In view of the problems
mentioned above, this project is aimed at implementing a project management
system which will exclusively:
Automate every project carried out in the
establishment such as registering a project , keeping track of project
milestones, projects updates and Asynchronous transfer of message between
project team members.
Efficiently handling of project files and secure channel through
which projects will be store, sorted, updated and retrieved.
1.5.0 RESEARCH JUSTIFICATION
This research work will provide a
reliable way of handling Springlight projects effectively and eliminate the lag
time in file recovery and also with an inclusion of anasynchronous system.
Furthermore, it will aids structural document representation and eliminates the
tedium of performing monotonous transaction. This research will also contribute
to existing literature in this area and will serve as a guild or blueprint for
an undergraduate student.
research work “design and implementation of an interactive project management
system” will be a web-based application and will be implemented on a relational
database system(MySQL). Html(hypertext markup language), css(cascading style
sheet) and Jquery will be used to design the web-user interface, php (hypertext
preprocessor) will be used as the serve- side script language to link the
interface and the database.
1.7.0 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF
research work is to develop a system capable of handling all Springlight task
such as creating project, setting time frame for a project, adding team members
to each project, adding project milestones to each project and asynchronous
messages between team members. The system will also incorporate in its design a
feedback layout between project team an d client as well.
system will not incorporate in its development all the functions of a project
management system but will focus only on the aforementioned functionalities.
The system will not be responsible for any loss of data if its environment
(network/system installed on) is corrupt.
1.8.0 CHAPTER LAYOUT
was put in place to explain what
each chapter does, chapter one introduces the project to the reader by
explaining the problems the project is supposed to solve, objective of the
study and research justification is to describe to the reader the purpose and
the importance of researching on this topic, research
methodology is all about the method used in implementing the research work,
scope and limitation describes the
boundary of the research work and where the project work can be put into use.
two deals with the literature review and state-of-the-art.This chapter
discusses literature review, what people have published related to this
research work and their shortcoming, how this present research can improve
Chapter three deals with the system design methodology i.e. collection
of tools methods and practices for achieving a task; the requirement
specification states the expectation of the system analysis, and design which
is the blueprint of what the system would carry out.
Chapter four has to do with
the implementation, system testing strategies, target computer system
requirement, software maintenance etc.
Chapter five discusses the
recommendations and conclusion part of the research work and how this work can
be applied to the problem domain.
