11. Communication Management Plan
11.1 General Project Information
Project Name: Laboratory development projectLocation: Mechanical Engineering Department, University of Alberta EdmontonProject Manager: Shannon MacDonald
11.2 Objectives
To keep all the stakeholders well informed in advance about the project progressand future activities. The prior knowledge through proper communication channelwill give confidence to all stakeholders. A prompt and accurate communicationwill ensure any change in expectations of a stakeholder or alteration in workingenvironment, thus enabling the project manager to take necessary action tomitigate any risk.It will be essential to communicate all the planning process to Dr Lipsett to keephim aware as he is the most influential stakeholder in this project.In absence of a good Communication Management Plan not only importantthings can be missed but also there is high probability of miscommunicationwhich may lead to grave problems in course of project.
11.3 Communication Constraints
Read and understand the safety codes for research facility layout.
With a very demanding work schedule, availability of Dr Lipsett for directface to face meetings is a big constraint which pushes the projectmanager to use other mediums.
Communication with the research students is deemed optional to them byDr Lipsett. Although they will be using the new facility.
Varying schedule of all the team members is also a hurdle for groupmeetings, discussion and brainstorming. 
Communication Assumptions
Team members are assumed to make effort to communicate with fellowmembers & project manager in event of an error or anything new isspotted.
Dr Lipsett will notify the project manager in case of any changes inexpectation.
Communication Risks
Communication lapse with the stakeholders is biggest risk, as the number of stakeholders is very few so everyone require good amount of attention.
Communication with research students is restricted to their choice whichmight hinder the project manager understanding their expectations.
Dr Lipsett’s busy schedule poses as a risk to delay communication in theproject.
Communication gap among project team can hamper the integrity.
Slow communication or approval from University authority can delay theschedule.

progress face to face meetings would be arranged with him as per hisavailability.
Layout planned for the new lab will be conveyed in engineering drawing instandard format of Chrome engineering via hard copies and auto-caddrawing.
Meetings with Roger Marchand will be used to fully understand the process of heavy equipment transportation. Schedule planning will depend upon thisactivity.
Report on schedule will be provided to Roger for execution activities andreminders through email.
Team members will have weekly meetings or more for discussing theprogress and scheduling their activities.
