Strategy for project plan, user requirme

By saad_iqbal ·
We are the most prestigious business institute (state owned) of Pakistan namely IBA, Karachi (Institute of Business Administration). Recently we are able to get an industry project, our computer science department (MIS & BCS program). Our team includes faculty members with dual degrees in Engineering/Computer Science and MBA, under the management of our deputy director (who is a Phd in CS, MBA and an Engineer).

The company is a local manufacturer of industrial goods interested in exports, reducing its costs and increasing the efficiency. This organization has 14 factories (1ook types of material), an employee welfare transport set up for its 25000 personnels, and a big hospital. This firm is interested in computerizing all its functional departments e.g Inventory Mgmt, Production Planning & Control/manufacturing, Budget, Finance & Accounts, Personnel Mgmtetc.

We thought it would be a good academic exercise to take this challenge.

Their requirement is that we prepare for them

Strategy for project plan, user requirement & vendor selection criteria
The above title of your question provides more information than your question details.
Most people don't know what strategy is and confuse it with goals, objectives and plans. It is best to at least read Sun Wu.
Begin with a vision of the project. Promote (advertise) it to everyone. Identify the deliverables at the highest level, develop intermediate schedules that include every master plan deliverable and build a warroom to display project status for program visibility.
Hire experienced personnel and vendors using the academic community for consultation only with no day to day responsibility. Identify the people with the biggest egos and send them on holiday. Keep the people that are the most secure and confident.
The most important effort is to develop a list of assumptions that everyone agrees to. If you would like to see more go to: http://www.internetservices.bigstep.com
