Project Breakup & Methodologies

1 - Describe the feasibility of breaking this project into separate projects and how you would go about prioritizing the separate projects and/or tasks within the project. Then, define each project as either: breakthrough, platform, derivative, R&D or partnered projects and explain why you defined it in this way. This has to be in reference to the project as described in the attached document.

2 - Describe in detail the methodologies you will use during the analysis stage (i.e. fit a computer solution to the stated problem). Based on the creativity enhancing techniques used by firms seeking innovative solutions to business problems, why the Brainstorming technique might be applicable to this R&D effort? (Brainstorming - This technique is perhaps the most familiar of all the techniques discussed here. It is used to generate a large quantity of ideas in a short period of time.)

P.S. Please provide appropriate references for statements and/or quotations NEXT TO THE STATEMENTS AND/OR QUOTATIONS ITSELF, apart from the references that you would provide at the end of your response as well. If you're just going to respond with outside references only, then please DO NOT respond.

It is quite feasible to break this project into separate projects, as it is quite a large scale and critical project, which not only need to be successful in terms of an excellent product outcome, but also need to be completed within schedule for obtaining competitive advantage in this extremely competitive industry. Thus, it is necessary that the project will be divided into separate projects or to be more appropriate, into separate tasks for quick completion and more efficiency. Since the project will require assistance from other partners, such as those related to development of hardware, etc. it becomes necessary to define and divide the whole project into smaller projects, aimed at completing individual tasks or components of the whole project. However, it is extremely important that such division of tasks should be monitored closely to ensure effective coordination between the individual components of the project, primarily in order to avoid any interoperability issues in the project and its final outcome.

The separate projects will be prioritized as per the steps or the roadmap outlined previously as it is not possible to skip ...
