Continuing the Family Garden scenario: (Provided below)Lesson Part 1 (Quality Tools) 40 points
Using PMBOK 5e, prepare five templates using specific quality tools that could be used to plan, assure, and control quality in the family garden scenario.
Choose from 1) flow charts, 2) check sheets, 3) Pareto diagrams, 4) histograms, 5) control charts, 6) scatter diagrams, 7) affinity diagrams, 8) process decision programs charts, 9) interrelationship digraphs, 10) tree diagrams, 11) prioritization matrices, 12) activity network diagrams, 13) matrix diagrams, 14) inspections, and 15) statistical sampling.
Not all of the tools are applicable or useful in the family garden scenario. Pick the tools you believe best apply to the project. This will require each of you to study each tool, understand how it is used, and whether or not it works with the family garden scenario.
Part 2 (
Quality Management Plan) 50 points
Using CPM 3e and the PMBOK5e, prepare a quality management plan (QMP) for the family garden scenario. Address each aspect described in Section 11.3, CPM 3e. Use the templates prepared in Part 1, above, as part of the quality tools section in the plan.
If information needed to complete a QMP is not explicitly stated in the scenario description or other project artifacts you’ve created or collected for this scenario in the past lessons, then develop (make-up) the information you need to complete the plan.
The entire plan, including templates contained in appendices, should not exceed 15 pages. Use tables and illustrations as needed to convey information.
Scenario Overview: Family Garden
A family (two adults, two children) prepares to plant a garden for fall harvest. One adult (Jack) is a real life project manager and decides to go about the project in accordance with the knowledge gained by readings in Lesson 5. One of the adults (Jill) has imposed a constraint that the project must not exceed a cost of $250 for supplies, equipment rental or purchase, and/or maintenance.
