As technical manager, I need to create schedules simultaneously for the multiple projects running under my supervision. Creating a schedule is a work in itself since i need to meet client’s expectations and also allocate resources.
Usually we receive only the equipment list and schematics from a client and estimated delivery time. In order to create a proper schedule, we need to do the following.
1) Create a scope of work for the project. Get a sign off from the client regarding this.
2) Create a touch panel flow for the project ( applicable if you are a programming services company). Get a sign off from the client regarding this.
3) After sign off, work out a schedule for offsite and onsite implementation. If client is not happy with the schedule, allocate more resources based on the quotation agreed upon.
4) If there is a change request, then take it up for the next phase and provide new quotation to the client.
How do you provide schedules to clients? Pass me the steps in the comments section below. Don’t forget to follow the blog if it’s relevant to you.
