Based on the feedback received on the project proposal, we have made the following changes:

  • Project schedule has been modified so that process re-engineering and development can run in parallel until all requirements are finalized.
  • Buffer time has been included after the UAT tests so that sufficient time is available to make changes to the system. Changes that are required to be made based on the UAT will be included in the following iteration. We have included a buffer time of one and a half weeks after the third UAT to complete any changes that are necessary before deployment.

After the supervisor meeting on 8th Jan 2009, we are considering the following:

  • Keeping track of documents electronically.
  • Printing ‘packets’ of documents to be sent to the governing board
