Hardware Replacement Project
The information technologies department is adding the latest solution for customer
relationship management (CRM) to its organization.
With the hardware replacement
project (HRP) for this addition, it consists of five major variables. They are as follows:
time, quality, scope, and risk. I will be giving a description of how the variables are
related to the HRP. There are many thoughts that will be implemented in choosing the
best projects that will provide the finest business worth during the evaluation. There will
be discussion on the issues that manipulate risks with projects and I will be
recommending strategies to reduce the risks involved with this project. My closing will
provide the optimum preparations with the processes involved in supervising the HRP.
Project management activities comprise of the following: planning work, risk
assessment, anticipated resources needed to complete the work, work organization, the
procurement of material and human resources, task assignments, action directions,
supervision of project implementation, progress reports, and examining of the
consequences. The hardware replacement project (HRP) involves five major variables in
managing a project. They are as follows: quality, costs, time, scope, and risk. (Lauden
and Lauden, 2009)
With quality it is a determination of the results upon completion of the project,
whether the organization is pleased with the outcome of the project or not. If the final
results help in the improvements of the decision making and performances, then the
information systems project is successful (good quality). When the new system is
installed, the quality is also determined by the accuracy, user-friendliness, and the
suitability of the data being generated. These are all examples that relate to the (HRP).
