Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

HI Guys,

NEED SOME HELP in developing a PLANNING & PROJECT CONTROL MANUAL. Existing manual with the company is old now and need to refine to suit the competing demands with availability of new softwares and project management standards.

I made d framework, covering following points

1. Introduction Covering roles and responsibilities and KPI’S

2. WBS development, dictionary, integration with orgz structure, responsibility assignment matrix integrated with WBS

3. Schedule Management Plan: How to develop a Schedule in P3/P5/P6. What r d things to be considered while submitting and approving the schedule. More or less a SCHEDULE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.

4. Cost Management Plan: Cost Management System, Cost Funding, Cost Estimating and Approval of Monthly bills against cost loaded in program

5. Performance Measurement Baselines: Integrated Performance Measurement Baselines with respect to cost and schedule. Development of S-Curves and monitoring & Controlling aspects. To include weightage factors etc.

6. Work Authorization System:

7. Progress Status: Daily/Weekly and Monthly Report Curves including collection of project data and interface with PM and CM.

8. Variance Management & Project Reports

9. Integrated Change Control System

If I had missed out any of the points or if somebody wud like to elaborate the points mentioned above, it wud b highly appreciated.

I shall be obliged, if somebody can share their manual with me, for making systems herein more stronger.

Waiting for reply

Cheers,

Raviraj

Thanks KD,

But the thing is, I started this thread 4 help on preparing this manual. I never said its ready.

Infact, there’s a guy called ABHIJIT KALE, who is supposed to forward some stuff on planning manual, which he never did. I asked for it first and then people assumed its this manual.

Seems to be bit impossible to predict any date as of now. I tried, but no response from management.

Cheers,

Ravi

Hi Raviraj
Sorry for pushing you. :-)
I’m just worry there are too much people asking for the manual that you can not remember.
Can we have a predicted date when the manual was launched.
Beside that, I’m willing to help you in P5/6 technical problem.

Dear Venkatesh,

Productivity rates u can calculate from the time cycle.
you have to break the activity in to sub activities and u have to work out the time cycle for the same.
From time cycle u can calculate the productivity rate.

Reg resurces reqd, basically u shld have an idea abt wt u r going to do in tht activity, plus u have to refer to technical specifications in the contract.
hope this will help u ltl bit...

Cheers,

What wxactly did you want to know about planning?

Updating usually occurs at a regulaur time period or when there is significant information becomes available or a significant event has occurred, perhaps a milestone. I hope this helps

Hi KD,

I knew that u hav asked for the same. But the thing is, it is still half baked and will be served very soon.

Need to wait for some more time, as management is taking too much time and there are hell of revisions in that as on date. Its already going through 9th revision and i m really tired working on this manual apart from routine project work.

You know better, its easy to work on a new project rather than making changes to the existing project to no limit.

Cheers,

Ravi

Hi Raviraj,

I know that there is a great deal of work in preparing a manual such as you have described. You’ve got it to draft form and it’s under consideration, whatever happens you can bet that your senior management will want changes made. KPIs are a favourite thing to emphasise, and I noticed that you planned to include this in the manual.

I don’t know if this will be any use to you, but I found KPI Library to be quite helpful.

Hi,

I would like to propose the Project Management Process Hut by John Filicetti on PM Hut. It actually covers the project from its inception to its closure. It also includes all necessary templates to do the job.

Raviraj, I am really interested in publishing your book as a Hut on PM Hut. Please use the "Contact" form on PM Hut in case you’re interested and we’ll take from there.

Raviraj,

Please dont make the mistake many other planners do by assuming that long range planning and strategig planning are one and the same. In short long range planning is what goals a company wants to achieve. Strategic planning allows the company to decide the best way to get the goals set forth in long range planning.

For example long range planning may have as one of its goals to corner the market in dingbats. Strategic planning lets the company decide the best way to do that.

I hope that helps
Cheers

Robert,

For an organization, planning can be split up into three sections:

1. Strategic - Long term covering organization goals
2. Tectical - For next few years and upcoming projects
3. Operational Planning - For an individual project / program

The planning manual which i intended to prepare was for construction phase of an individual project basically covering preparation of Clause 14.1 / 8.3 program and about, how to monitor and control the project.

Still not got enough time and stuff to complete it, even though draft copy was submitted and at present, under review by management BUT STILL NOT COMPLETE.

Cheers,

Ravi

Hi pals,

The manual is still under preparatory stage.

What we were asking from last so many days is some guidelines from Mr. Abhijit Kale, which he never turned up.

So, u may send PM to Abhijit kale for help rather than reading these posts?

Thanks Catalan for the reply,

I do believe, cost and schedule control will be a part of performance measurement baselines control which I proposed in chapter 7 & 8.

RFI’s, NCR’s and submittals can be a part of Integrated Change control system (Chapter 9)

Thanks for the suggestion

Hi Raviraj,

Item 1 to 8 are the detailed part of the Item 9-Integrated Change Control System which is other call it the Cost & Schedule Control.

I would suggest to have a separate chapter on how to develop, implement and track RFI’s, NCR’s, drawings & material submittals, etc., and another chapter for Project Closeout.

Thanks Oliver,

For d last four points suggested, i think that shud b a part of SCHEDULE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, that wud typically focus on what to check in the schedule while submitting; INTERFACES between planning & other departments and the standard reporting formats.

For the remaining points, yes, thats a good suggestion and I will try to incorporate.

Does ur company hav anything as such? If yes, plz mail me.

R,

A manual infers you will are writing a specific how to?

Are you sure it is not a company guide you should be writing that outlines the requirements of the programme and control procedures.

i.e.

Topics covered are:
• Establishing a Work Breakdown Structure
• Production of the Programme
• Approval of the Contract Programme
• Sub Programmes
• Programme monitoring
• Updating the Programme
• Cause and Effect.
• Project Reporting

Details under these headings would include non-project specific guidance such as;

*WBS should be created in conjunction with PM/BidM.
*every activity should have a predecessor & successor.
*performance must be mesured in physical % complete.

We have been in the process of trying to develop same thing for about 3 years now, and have made limited progress. I will give you some detailed feedback if you give me a little more time. It was very easy to develop the outline part, but when we do the detailed descriptions it became time consuming and slowed us way down.

The biggest issue is that nobody wants to use it anyway, except the bosses want it because I suggested it.

Raviraj,

I am interested to know if your manual is a supplementary to your company’s Quality Management Procedure or a standalone document? Also, is it for construction purposes only or does it covers the tender preparation and commissioning stages...

I suggest You may a glossary of terms as appendix to your manual...

Please give me a copy once you have already something to share...


Regards,

Arman
