This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

I have a project that deals with multiple systems: SQL server, hosting company, fourth shift server, RBP server. Below, I have listed a list of risks with the project. Please take a look and let me know any other risk or something that I can add to the risk items. The risk is part of the testing phase of the project.

I. Risk

10.1 Schedule
Testing for Rule Based Picking will be conducted in a two week period as outline in the testing calendar. The developing team is currently finishing up with the development aspect of the program which we may have to delay the testing phase until all aspects of the program has been completed.

10.2 Security
The testing of the Rule Based Picking system is dependent on the security access to Scott Pet Products' testing environment.

10.3 Technical
This will require an active Internet connection to test customer Internet web portal login page which is dependent on the web hosting company (GoDaddy).

10.4 Requirements
If testing reveals a major flaw in the system and re-modification to the program is necessary we will get approval from the project manager, project sponsor and Dr. Overmyer before proceeding.

There are many more risks that you have missed out.

I. Risk

A risk to a project can be a potential threat. However, to mitigate project risks they need to be identified and evaluated. A risk can be expressed in figures as such:

RISK = PROBABILITY OF EVENT x COST OF EVENT

As part of project management it is essential to conduct risk analysis followed by risk management. It may not be possible to identify all risks but most of them are obvious and others may not be.

In relation to the testing project the following risks may cause major project delays if not managed/mitigated:

10.1 Schedule
Testing for Rule Based Picking will be conducted in a two week period as outline in the testing calendar. The developing team is currently finishing up with the development aspect of the program which we may have to ...

Software Development Project

The content of this project is to create and develop a software which will be called DEDS: The Dog E-Daycare System (DEDS) will accept information from clients and potential clients that supports presenting dog services, scheduling appointments, and collecting relevant dog information.

In short, DEDS is a brokering system for dog owners to obtain services such as dog-sitting, kennelling, walking, and various appointments (e.g., veterinarian, breeding, grooming).

DEDS will interact with clients (people) through a web interface both for data entry and business transactions. There must be a database maintained on a web connected personal computer for dog information and client information to be entered, updated, and removed.

The DEDS will accept dog information, accept inquiries for service, schedule service, provide interface for specific care instructions, and track services rendered. The system will interface with people via the workstation and via the web.

While some of the functionality of the system may be purchased from third party vendors, it is presumed that the software for the project will primarily be developed in-house (in other words, code will have to be written).

It is also presumed that any hardware or software (e.g. database management system) needed for this new system must be purchased.

It is required to complete the Goals and Objectives section of their project plan (pdf. file attached). It is expected that your completed document will be between 3 and 4 pages in length.

This deliverable should be in the following format. This is a textual discussion. No WBS should be created at this point. At the top of the first page of your project plan should be a revision history table. Please note that this outline should be followed faithfully, including the numbering hierarchy.

More details, requirements and layout information in the accompanying pdf.
