Project Management

project managementCES uses an approach leveraging industry standards, as well as experience, to meet the overall goal of every project. A seasoned, expert team will be assembled to provide the solution and services. Our teams use professional facilitation (IAF) techniques, professional engineering (PE and IEEE), and standard project management (PMI-PMP).

Our approach generally adheres to the IEEE standards and the best practice principles for project management using the Project Management Institute (PMI), Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).  In addition, we follow communication and engineering industry standards, guidelines and best practices. This provides a broad toolkit to build a successful project.

As in all of our engineering evaluation and plans, our engineering analysis will be conducted in accordance with international reference standards and conventions including: IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, CCITT - International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee and ITU – International Telecommunication Union / EIA/ TIA, FCC / FAA, OSHA, National Electric Code (NEC) standards and state and local BOCA regulations and ordinances including the following standards:

»  FCC’s OET Bulletin 65 “Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to Radio frequency Electromagnetic fields” and SHA 29 CFR 1910 and 1926 Guidelines.
»  American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard E1527 Standard Practices for Environmental Site Assessment: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process.
»  EIA/TIA standard 222-G” Structural standards for Steel Antenna Tower and Antenna Supporting Structures and comply with the latest BOCA codes.
»  Obstruction evaluation will be in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 77 and the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) Rules.
»  Transmitter’s Effective isotropic Radiated Power (EiRP) will be in accordance with FCC guidelines.
»  Motorola R56 Standards.
»  APCO 25 and SAFCOM standards and guidelines.project management


DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Project management is a continuous task and will be active for the duration of the contract. The monitoring, scheduling, and reporting requirements of the task will be used to facilitate periodic reviews by the Client to ascertain CES' conformance with the requirements of the project. Below describes the multi segmented project management services that are provided:

PROJECT MANAGEMENT APPROACH
Project Management is the overarching discipline utilized for the acquisition, and maintenance of technology covering the full range of life cycle activities from cradle to grave. The project management approach generally adheres to the macro-view of software acquisition described by the IEEE and the micro-view of best practices principles for project management using the Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).

The Project Framework establishes a consistent method for project selection, control, and evaluation based on alignment with business goals and objectives.

The PMBOK provides project review gates with guidance and tools for each of the gates. A review gate is a distinct division of effort for a specified purpose during project delivery. Each review gate is intended to synchronize the client’s investment in a project based on approval of business outcomes at a specific point during project delivery. Completion of a review gate requires agency head approval based on careful assessment of whether a project is ready to proceed to the next project delivery stage.

The review gates include:
»  Business Justification – initial review gate for selection and approval of the project
»  Project Planning & Scheduling – planning for both project management and technology-related activities and deliverables
»  Solicitation and Contracting – development and management of technology solicitations and contracts
»  Project Staging & Implementation  – development, deliverables, review and approval, and turnover
»  Project Closure & Benefits Realization – final review gate for measurement and evaluation of all project outcomes

CES works with the client's personnel and other identified parties to create the stakeholder list, and identify the representatives and contacts to be part of the project. We then conduct stakeholder interviews in person for key individuals, and hold a facilitated workshop for requirements, gathering and setting priorities according to facilitation principles and practices from the International Association of Facilitators (IAF).
