COTS purchase process

By Samin ·
Hello,

I'm looking for a project schedule or process document that describes what is involved in managing a project where you are providing only PM services as opposed to development?

Regards,

SB

Okay, I'm confused. You want a process document that describes how to manage a project where you are providing Project Management (PM) services??

What type of project are providing PM services for? And how does it tie in with COTS purchases?

Hello ...

Thank you for your response. What I am really looking for are actual tasks that one has to perform inorder to select a software. As an example: (M = Milestone, T = Task, ST = Sub Task)

M Secure Funding
T Create Business Case
T Create Business Process Flow
M Create RFP
T Rubric
T Analysis
ST Focused Group discussions

etc

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated ..

SB

You are asking for a generic work breakdown structure without giving any information about your project. No one can do that for you - your project is unique. Your also asking what a PM does when providing PM services. If you are getting paid for this project as the PM, you should know!

For PM tasks in a project, look at the Project Management Body of Knowledge at www.PMI.org.

For the evaluation of the software you will need to do to make sure it is right for your needs try looking for the Constructive Evaluation Method (probably found at www.anshar.com)

For the implementation details, talk to the technical people who have to do it and the producer of the software and systems you are going to put in place. Each proprietory system has its own tasks that must be included for a successful project.
