Project Management: Coordination Review
Cause for Corrective Action
‘Group 2 has been working very well together. We have been creating due dates, keeping deadlines, and have been helping each other throughout the gates. Challenges that were faced during Gate 2 are outlined in Section 3.1 Challenges Faced During Dissection of the Product Dissection Gate 2. Below are just some of the resolved and unresolved challenges that we have faced as a team after Gate 2.
- I. Resolved Challenges
- 1. Grading – After seeing our grade on gate 2 we had to talk to the professor in order to address the fact that some information in the gate was missing. After reviewing the gate and realizing that some of our information could be presented better, our team has made a checklist of tasks to ensure that all information that is asked for in gate 3 will be provided.
- 2. Part Template – The part template our group had created that helped aid in our documentation needed revision. We drew up a new template that added how each part was manufactured and if the part had any specific model numbers.
- 3. Allocation of Tasks- In this Gate we decided that one member of our team, Joe, should do the solid model assembly. In order to make sure that he was able to complete this, we gave him more time to work on it by helping him with other assignments that he needed to do for Gate 3.
- II. Unresolved Challenges
- 1. Flow – We realized that out wiki page needed more “readability”. To fix this, we assembled the specific tasks into “wiki” format. This means that when we assembled our own individual work, we make a format guideline to display our work in the most convenient way to read. We will adhere to this format and wait to see how it works with the result grade from Gate 3.
- 2. Thanksgiving – Our team consists of people who live outside of Buffalo. This means it will be hard for us to find time to work on our next gate during our upcoming break. We are trying to get a jump start on Gate 4 so that we all can enjoy our families over break. We will have to wait and see how much we can get accomplished before break.
Again these are only the important conflicts and challenges we have faced so far. We look forward to the completion of this project and will continue to adhere to the conflict and challenge resolution techniques outlined in Gate 1 in sections 1.2.5 Challenges and Shortcomings and 3.3 Group Conflicts.
