Group 3 - Homelite Fluid Pump (Gasoline Powered) - Management Proposal
In order to accomplish the many tasks that Group 3 will encounter throughout the duration of this project, a protocol that outlines certain aspects of group management has been created. The facets of this protocol include the assignment of a Point of Contact for the group, a group productivity model & meeting schedule, the assignment of group member roles, and group conflict handling.
Point of Contact
Mark Tomaszewski (Communication Liaison) :
Productivity Model & Meeting Schedule
The most important aspects to being successful as a group in accomplishing time-sensitive goals include thorough communication, clarification of expectations, and peer review with feedback. These are the key aspects to maximizing the productivity of the group such that the project gates can be completed within given time constraints.
Through regularly scheduled group meetings the group can assess its current status with respect to the project requirements, and in doing such, group members can cooperatively build a strategy by which to maintain productivity according to the above-mentioned key aspect of productivity.
Mandatory group meetings are periodically scheduled to take place every Monday and Wednesday immediately following MAE 277 Lecture. Group members should plan to dedicate at least one hour of time to these group meetings. The meetings will take place on the ground floor of the Silverman Library in Capen Hall.
Other meetings may be necessary from time to time and it's expected that in most cases it will be possible to schedule an auxiliary meeting while the group members are in attendance of a mandatory meeting. However, in some instances this may not be possible, and in those cases the group will arrange an auxiliary meeting through telephone communication.
Group Member Roles
Upon Compiling a list of the group members' strengths and weaknesses in the Work Proposal, it became clearly evident ho to assign dutiful roles to the group members for this project. The following table presents the Roles assigned and Description of Duties for each group member.

In the event that group conflict occurs, it will be the duty of the group's Project Manager, Alberto Santiago, to address the conflict in a group setting and arbitrate a solution to the conflict. The group's first method of choice for reaching a resolution to conflict is to compromise within reason. If a simple compromise cannot be reached, then the group will rely upon a majority vote to resolve conflict.
