Section 1: Introduction & Project Charter
The project Sparta team is a group of current and graduate Florida State Universitystudents that intend to volunteer in local organizations around Tallahassee to gain experience andassist the community. In order to assist the Sparta team, this project team is proposing anamendment to the current Network Assessment document, originally conceived by MelissaRaulston. The initial plan to do this is by focusing on resolving what we feel are three mainweaknesses of the current document: its lack of interactivity, simplicity and its lack of conciseness. This project was undertaken due to the desire to assist Ms. Raulston in modifyingthe Network Assessment document so that it could be more beneficial to current and graduateInformation Technology students from Florida State University. The current Network Assessment document is being hosted by Melissa Raulston, and is available at http://network.projectsparta.org/ .The final project plan will be finished by December 8th, 2011.a.
Resources available for project
Total all phases: $100.00Total this phase: $0This project is being implemented using currently available resources, and by studentswho are not getting paid, therefore, it should not require any money to complete the suggestions.Ms. Raulston is hosting this Network Assessment on her own personal web server, and thusdepending on what extra data usage this project may require, depending on how her website ispaid for (monthly charge, or by how much data is used) she may incur extra fees. As a result of this possibility, the group has decided to plan a budget of $100 dollars that assumes charges mayapply.b.
The project team came to the conclusion that there are four milestone events that needed to beaccomplished. The first thing that needed to be accomplished was analyzing the network assessment document, and coming up with ways to improve the security section of the document,and later, the whole document. The next milestone was observing a group of I.T practicumstudents using the document, and critiquing the document's effectiveness in a live environment.Once that critique was completed, the third thing to finish was using the data that the team hadgathered, and coming up with a plan to improve the document. After determining that thatnetwork assessment had to be re-coded to be helpful, and improve usability, the team concludedthat would be the final milestone for the project.Start: Analyze Network Assessment DocumentEnd: Observe I.T practicum studentsDuration: 14 daysStart: Observe I.T practicum studentsEnd: Modify Network AssessmentDuration: 3 days
