Final Project Milestone Four Guidelines and Rubric Scope, Cost, and Quality Planning Report Draft

Final Project Milestone Four Guidelines and Rubric Scope, Cost, and Quality Planning Report Draft

Note: In order to successfully complete this project, you will need to carefully review the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document and the Medical

Informatics case study documents, located in the Assignments section of the course. Overview: In this milestone, you will analyze the Medical Informatics case study in order to complete a draft of the scope, cost, and quality planning report. The detailed guidelines for what should be included in your scope, cost, and quality planning report draft are outlined below. In addition, you may need to use MS Project to generate documents which support your ideas. You should use the headings provided in the outline as headings in your draft to ensure that you have considered all of the required elements. The purpose of these milestones is to provide the opportunity to complete pieces of your final project through the course of the term, and obtain instructor feedback as part of grading that you can then apply to your final submission. Keep in mind that your final project, submitted in Module Nine, will be composed of the information you have gathered in each of the five milestones, crafted into a comprehensive, cohesive, well- written, and professional project proposal. Specifically, the draft of your scope, cost, and quality planning report should include the following:

A. Project Scope Planning: Establish the project scope plan and controls. What are the business requirements? What are the system requirements (software and hardware)? In establishing your project scope plan, you might consider these aspects:

1. Requirements (requirements traceability matrix) 2. Existing work breakdown structure 3. Person responsible for each requirement (responsibility assignment matrix)

B. Project Cost Planning and Control: Establish a cost control plan with strategies to help maintain prospective value of the new project with respect to

expected expenditures and added business values. As you are developing your cost control plan, you could consider aspects such as these: 1. The cost–benefit analysis 2. The TCO 3. Budgeted vs. actual costs 4. The earned value of the project

C. Project Quality Planning: Craft a plan for ensuring quality of the project outcomes that identifies acceptable performance standards and recommended

recovery strategy. Ideas to consider may include: 1. Key performance indicators of quality 2. Important factors in defining quality 3. How to measure quality

Guidelines for Submission: This draft must follow these formatting guidelines: double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, with APA citations only if outside sources are cited. There is no minimum length for this draft; however, it should address all of the critical elements listed above.
