Project - Website redevelopment and hosting and maintenance services and implementation of CMS for “Destination: Australia”
This project is for the technical upgrade of the Archives’ website Destination: Australia. In order to ensure the best value for money and optimal functionality (for the website and related exhibition interactive) going forward, it is necessary for the website to be transferred from a proprietary CMS to a commonly available CMS (including, but not limited to, an Open Source CMS).
The website will enable the Destination Australia to collect user contributed data about the photographic collection featured on the site. The interface must be modern, engaging and user-friendly, designed to meet the needs of people of all ages, and differing levels of computer and English literacy. The website must interact successfully with an exhibition interactive via an existing API. There is an option for hosting, maintenance and support services to be provided from contract execution until 31 December 20XX.
National Archives of Australia has also identified the need of database to enhance their customer relationship management. In the second phase of the project the project team requires a database (Software As A Service) Customer Relationship Management system (SAAS CRM) to effectively and confidentially manage large volumes of data, including names, addresses, opinions of community members and contact details. This will assist in ongoing community engagement.
The system must be fully operational (tried and tested) within two weeks of the commencement of the proposed contract. The project, and related community engagement, will be ongoing for years. Access to maintenance and advice will be desirable.
Before you commence your Assessment, ensure that you have good knowledge of the subject, have thoroughly read your Learner workbook, and clearly understand the Assessment requirements and the expectations of the Assessor.
You may be required to demonstrate knowledge and skills which may be difficult for the Assessor to witness. If so, an Evidence Record is supplied which will allow the knowledge or skill to be verified by at least one third party, and preferably two or more. These witnesses would usually be current or recent supervisors or your Assessor.
Explanations are given for each Task. If you have any questions, consult with your Assessor.
The assessment tasks may be answered using your workplace, the simulated business or a mixture of both as instructed by your Assessor.
All assessment in this subject/units must be completed in the class under the supervision of your facilitator. Once completed the assessments are to be uploaded on LMS (www.kiionline.edu.au/moodle) in individual student profile for marking.
· All assessments must be attempted
· All questions must be answered in an appropriate manner as per the requirements.
· Follow the assessor’s instructions to complete the assessments
Individual assessments are to be marked as “Satisfactory” or “Not Yet satisfactory”. The final outcome of this subject/unit is to be recorded in “Unit outcome Record” as “competent” (C) or “Not Yet Competent” (NYC) and/or in LMS. In order to be competent in a given unit of competency the student must satisfactorily complete all assessment tasks and. If more than one unit of competency are clustered to form a subject, the students are still required to attempt all assessments
Complete the following sections. Ensure that you have addressed all questions accurately.
For this assessment you are required to work on the case study used in assessment 1.
The company is now interested in evaluating the current status of the project to determine how is it progressing. As per the project timeline and initial planning 50% of the project should have been completed by now. The members of Project Steering Committee have a general feeling that the project has progresses well above the expectations and there is a possibility that the timelines of the project can be reviewed for an early completion. You are required to complete the all three parts (Part A, B and C) to complete a project closure report.
To complete this assessment, you are frequently required to refer to Gantt Chart, Project Overview, Projected Cash Flow, Projected Cost Summary, Tracking Gantt and resource Overview documents. The following resources are available on LMS:
- Gantt Chart.
- Project Overview
- Projected Cash Flow
- Projected Cost Summary
- Tracking Gantt
Part A - Evaluate project performance
1. Identify who were the key internal and external stakeholders of the project. The Stakeholders should include the project team members, Steering committee and the sponsors of the project.
2. Draft an email to all stakeholders of the project requesting them to provide current project status (project metrics). The status should indicate the percentage of the project completed, budget exhausted and the expected completion date, important milestones etc. (if there is a diversion from the original plan). You are required to list the items you are seeking the information.
3. Power Point Presentation: In this section you are required to make a presentation to your team members and stakeholders.
4. Assuming all project status data (metrics) have been accumulated from email responses of relevant stakeholders (available as additional resources), describe how the identified matrices provide an insight on current project performance.
5. Debrief the project team and the stakeholders the current status of the project and the progress made in the project. This task requires you to prepare 10 - 15 PowerPoint presentation slides which includes information collected in question 2 of Part A. Time allocated for this presentation is 10 – 15 minutes. Your performance will be judged on how clearly you are able to communicate the report to your team members and the next step forward.
6. Summarise the findings of your Project status you received from your Team members and present it in a report format. Name the file as “Project status report”. This report should include the information you received in Question 2 of Part A. Use the appropriate technical language and table when compiling reports.
Part B - Finalise the project
1. Review the project performance and determine whether the project should be allowed to continue, close or early termination is required.
To complete this task, you have been supplied, PID, Gantt chart, Budget and additional resources. Refer to the resources folder to access these documents. Compare the pre-determined milestones budget, resources allocated and expected completion date against the “actual outcome status report”. You should also compare the project objectives with the actual outcome/s.
Prepare a 1-page report of your recommendation, including a table of data comparison with interpretation, that justifies whether this project should be allowed to continue, close or terminate early. Present the information in a logical manner and clear of any ambiguities using technical language appropriate to the stakeholders and project team members.
2. Explain whether the project should be allowed to continue, decommissioned or closed and determine its overall impact. In this section you are required to discuss the following:
I. Outline the impact of this decision on associated stakeholders
