Project Purpose The purpose of the ‘Defect management System’ project is threefold: a. To standardize the way in which defects are managed across projects within the company. b. To allow defects to be managed more efficiently within projects thereby increasing project productivity. c.

1.3

To allow upper management (and customers) greater visibility into defects encountered which will enable them to keep project on course and draw important conclusions to effectively manage future projects.

Project Objectives The main objective of this project is to develop and implement an intranet based system that will

allow defects encountered to be registered and tracked them to closure. This system will be access constrained with different access levels assigned on the basis of role and responsibilities of the person accessing the system.

1.4

Project Phases The following project phases have been identified to successfully complete this project: 1.4.1 Require Gathering Phase: This phase will include gathering requirements, documenting and reviewing the final scope statement. 1.4.2 Design Phase: This phase will include preparing the system design and specific documentation and review.

1.4.3 Development and Testing Phase: This Phase will involve developing the code based on requirements definition and design specifications. The code will then be tested against existing in house projects. 1.4.4 Implementation: After the testing phase is completed, the system will be deployed on the company’s intranet so that it can be accessed by the various projects executed in the company. 1.4.5 Training: Training will be provided to specific people across projects to help them understand and use the system more effectively and efficiently.

1.5

Project Scope: The defect management system will cater to all existing projects being executed at the time of implementation and those that will be execute in the future. Projects completed before the implementation of the Defect Management System are currently not within the scope of the project. Also, the system will only serve to manage defects for client projects executed within the company and will not serve as a defect management tool for the Consulting Services provided by the company to its external clients. In the Training Phase, training will be provided to key people identified within various projects and who will then be expected to provide training to their team members.
