Week Introduction:

Signature Assignment: Quality Management Plan

The project quality plan will be an assembly of learning curves results, pricing, estimation, a cost control plan and a complex understanding of how the quality of the project can be materially affected. The project quality plan serves as a guide for the project team to ensure they meet or exceed the degree of performance required by the project during the execution phase. The creation of this plan is your opportunity to define the level of quality expected for the project team.

Assignment: Incorporate Quality Management Initiatives into the Project Environment (25 Points) Due: 06/26/2016


The stakeholders have expressed some concerns about the quality initiatives to be implemented for this project. You explain to them that the Quality Management Plan will be their roadmap and your blueprint for how you are planning to instill quality of product and performance into the project.

Generate a paper that explains how you are planning to incorporate quality management initiatives into the project environment. Identify the project scope, the pricing, cost control and estimating techniques to be employed, as well as a summary of your trade-off analysis. The information generated from prior assignments will be the foundation for you as the project manager to demonstrate the proposed allocation of quality management to the project environment. Your paper may include quality related topics such as the quality movement, quality management concepts, the cost of quality, and implementing six-sigma. The plan will guide the project to ensure the work and materials meet or exceed a defined level of quality.

Demonstrate by brief diagram your project quality initiative process as you have addressed in your paper. A diagram of the quality process steps may be appropriate to clarify the plan process. Also include any cost estimation spreadsheets created for your project.
