Overview: As you have learned, an engineering project can be thought of as a complex system with many interrelated parts. In your role as an engineering manager, you must be aware of the typical problems that can disrupt that system. Sometimes, you may be brought into an existing projectperhaps because of a restructuring in the organizational chart, or because the project has gone off-track and is in need of new leadership. When that happens, it is important to thoroughly assess the project dynamics before implementing new management strategies.
Prompt: In Milestone One, you will summarize the important details of the VALID case study and set the context for the case report that you will create for executive leadership. Furthermore, you will assess the project methodology in the VALID case, analyzing the engineering design process used, the handshake issues, and the resources and personnel.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Introduction A. Establish a context for your report by summarizing the important details of the case and identifying the purpose of this report for your audience (i.e., your executive leadership). II. Project Methodology A. Assess the extent to which the project suffers from methodological dysfunctions. To what extent has methodology been logically and consistently applied through each of the stages of development? Defend your position with specific evidence. B. Specifically identify examples of handshake issues in which the silos between working groups prevented effective transitions from one design step to the next. C. Evaluate the current use of the projects resources and personnel. Are all team members working in appropriate roles related to their specific expertise? Could the teams resources be more strategically allocated? Defend your position with specific evidence.
Rubric Guidelines for Submission: Milestone One should be a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and sources cited in APA format
