At the same time, the intention of the pilot program is to identify any issues that might arise during training. This includes the timing, presentation of material, and other training components. A pilot program takes this group through the training program, incorporating their feedback and responses into the program and training manual. An additional use of pilot programs is for trainers to understand the training process. Once input is made, if new materials or activities are added, an additional dry run occurs. After this has been deemed successful, another pilot program runs to ensure the feedback has been ...

Riordan Manufacturing: Transition from Design to Implementation

I need help again for part 3 of this project. Please help me with solutions/ideas for the following problem below:

This week's assignment incorporates the transition from design to implementation. You may consider revising Sections 1 and 2 based upon faculty feedback. Prepare a 4-6 page paper that accomplishes the following:

- Abstract

- Describe the implementation stage for this project.

- Include a discussion of the six major activities for the implementation stage as described within the text: (1) coding, (2) testing, (3) installation, (4) documentation, (5) training and (6) support. The discussion of these six activities should describe specifically how each activity would be planned for the individual project situation.

- Discuss the benefits of using defined and repeatable processes for accomplishing these activities for the implementation stage.

- Cite and discuss 3-4 references, in addition to the required readings, that are relevant to the assignment.
