You need to plan, implement and monitor according to these nine functions. This is the internationally accepted approach to electrical project management. The functions and your responsibilities are explained below.
1. Electrical Project Scope Management
Committing the organisation to begin the next phase of the electrical project.
Developing a written scope statement as the basis for future electrical project decisions and for creation of the detailed electrical project plan.
Subdividing the major electrical project deliverables into smaller, more manageable components.
Scope Change Control:
Controlling changes to project scope.
2. Electrical Project Time Management
Identifying the specific activities that must be performed to produce the various project deliverables.
Identifying and documenting interactivity dependencies.
Activity Duration Estimating:
Estimating the number of work periods needed to complete individual activities.
Analysing activity sequences, activity durations, and resource requirements to create the project schedule. This schedule will become the basis of monitoring time throughout the project.
3. Electrical Project Cost & Revenue Management
Electrical project work orders should follow the standard work order structure.
Determining what resources (people, equipment, materials) and what quantities and timing of each should be used to perform project activities.
Developing an approximation (estimate) of the costs of the resources needed to complete project activities.
Including: Payment schedule; escalation; timing; milestones etc
Allocating the overall cost estimate to individual work items.
Controlling changes to the project budget.
4. Electrical Project Quality Management
Identifying which quality standards are relevant to the project and determining how to satisfy them.
Evaluating overall project performance on a regular basis to provide confidence that the project will satisfy the relevant quality standards.
Monitoring specific project results to determine if they comply with relevant quality standards and identifying ways to eliminate causes of unsatisfactory performance.
Warrantee Claims Procedures
Warrantee claims procedures will be followed for failures in material or workmanship.
5. Electrical Project Risk Management
Determining which risks are likely to affect the project and documenting the characteristics of each – safety, environmental, health, physical; financial etc.
Evaluating risks and risk interactions to assess the range of possible project outcomes.
Risk Response Development:
Defining enhancement steps for opportunities and responses to threats.
Risk Response Control:
Responding to changes in risk over the course of the electrical project.
6. Electrical Project HR Management
Identifying, documenting, and assigning project roles, responsibilities, and reporting relationships.
Getting the human resources needed assigned to and working on the electrical project.
Developing individual and group skills to enhance electrical project performance.
7. Electrical Project Communications Management
Determining the information and communications needs of the stakeholders: who needs what information, when will they need it, and how will it be given to them.
Making needed information available to project stakeholders in a timely manner.
Collecting and disseminating performance information. This includes status reporting, progress measurement, and forecasting.
Generating, gathering and disseminating information to formalise phase or electrical project compilation.
8. Electrical Project Procurement Management
Determining what to procure and when.
Documenting product requirements and identifying potential sources.
Choosing from among potential sellers.
Managing the relationship with the seller.
Contract Close out:
Completion and settlement of the contract, including resolution of any open items.
9. Electrical Project Integration Management
Electrical Project Plan Development:
Taking the results of other planning processes and putting them into a consistent, coherent document.
Project Plan Execution:
Carrying out the electrical project plan by performing the activities included therein.
Overall Change Control:
Coordinating changes across the entire project.
These are the things on which your performance will be measured on an ongoing basis, and in particular at review time along with others which may also be specifically nominated by management from time to time.
