Project Proposal
Using the project you chose from Unit I, complete the following assignment. Use the project scenario you created from Unit I in order to organize your project.
Use an Internet search engine to search for a project charter template. Using this template as a model, use Microsoft Word to define the following for your project: the Objective, Constraints, Resources, the Budget, and the Schedule. In addition, discuss the matrix style you would prefer to use for your project and why this choice is the best. Also include the communication methods you will use to communicate to the various resources involved in this project. Use Word to create your scope statement. Your assignment should be two to three pages (not including your project cover page).

Project Planning
In developing a nation wide software system application project, designed for the United States Army, a pilot program, which consists of a test phase, must be conducted. The primary requirement of the software is to have a user-friendly customer interface along with a data management system. This interface is used to let developers interact with the pilot phase conductors. The software is expected to capture a lot of customer information within an online interactive platform. 
The development has both exterior and interior stakeholders, which are the civilian bosses, and soldiers. This project needs to be accomplished within a regulated time and within a reasonable budget. If the routine software meets the requirements of the stakeholders, it will then be recommended. This program requires a risk analysis, project planning, budgeting, and division of the responsibility and monitoring. The project objective is to understand the requirements needed for the Army’s pilot program to succeed along with the soldiers being able to accomplish the task; an voice their opinions on the areas that need to be changed. The developer will establish a user-friendly, reliable and compact software application for maintaining the proficiency needed for the program to excel. The main stakeholders in this program are:
•	Bosses as Investors
•	Pilot phase employees as teachers
•	Pilot phase students as users
•	IT-Project personnel as developer
The norm for this task may take a total of up to two years for the developer to complete a well exceled pilot program. Availability of resources and references could also hinder the timely completion of the project. Data sharing and interactions will be limited to direct contact with stakeholders. This may entail:

•	Gather information
•	Getting approval
•	Write up requirements
•	Create Interface
•	Feedback
•	Testing
Strategically the test phase is very important on three major parameters consisting of, capturing operating necessity, documenting changes, and the transition of a working product. The operating necessity is creating a system that is consistently updated; versus a long maintenance or update period. Documenting and addressing system failures will aid in transitioning the test product to its implementation.
