Q1. What are the various phases of project management life cycle? Explain
A.1The various phases in project management life cycle are
 · Analysis and evaluation· Marketing· Design· Inspecting, testing and delivery· Post completion analysisFigure shows the phases in a sequence.
1.8.1 Analysis and Evaluation Phase
 It starts with receiving a request to analyse the problem from the customer. The project managerconducts the analysis of the problem and submits a detailed report to the top management. Thereport should consist of what the problem is, ways of solving the problem, the objectives to beachieved, and the success rate of achieving the goal.
1.8.2 Marketing Phase
 A project proposal is prepared by a group of people including the project manager. This proposalhas to contain the strategies adopted to market the product to the customers.
1.8.3 Design Phase
 Based on the inputs received in the form of project feasibility study, preliminary projectevaluation, project proposal and customer interviews, following outputs are produced:· System design specification· Program functional specification· Program design specification· Project plan
1.8.4 Inspecting, Testing and Delivery Phase
 During this phase, the project team works under the guidance of the project manager. The projectmanager has to ensure that the team working under him implements the project designsaccurately. The project has to be tracked or monitored through its cost, manpower and schedule.The tasks involved in these phases are:· Managing the customer· Marketing the future work · Performing quality control work 
1.8.5 Post Completion Analysis Phase
 After delivery or completion of the project, the staff performance has to be evaluated. The tasksinvolved in this phase are:· Documenting the lessons learnt from the project· Analysing project feedback · Preparing project execution report· Analysing the problems encountered during the projectQ2. Write brief note on project planning and scoping.A.2The purpose of project planning and scoping is to first identify the areas of the project work and the forces affecting the project and then to define the boundaries of the project. In addition,the scoping has to be explicitly stated on the line of the project objectives. It also has toimplicitly provide directions to the project. The planning and scoping should be such that theproject manager is able to assess every stage of the project and also enabling the assessment of the quality of the deliverable of the project at every stage.Fist, let us list the steps involved in project scoping. These steps include:i) Identifying the various parametric forces relevant to the project and its stagesii) Enabling the team members to work on tools to keep track of the stages and thereby proceedin the planned manneriii) Avoiding areas of problems which may affect the progress of the projectiv) Eliminating the factors responsible for inducing the problems
v) Analysing the financial implications and cost factor at various stages of the projectvi) Understanding and developing the various designs required at various stages of the projectvii) Identifying the key areas to be included in the scope through various meetings, discussion,and interviews with the clientsviii) Providing a base and track to enable alignment of project with the organisation and itsbusiness objectivesix) Finding out the dimensions applicable to the project and also the ones not applicable to theprojectx) Listing out all the limitations, boundary values and constraints in the projectxi) Understanding the assumptions made in defining the scopeAfter completing the project scoping, you can start your project plan. Project planning involvesthree processes as shown in the figurea)
The identification process
The main steps in the identification process of any project are:i) Identifying initial requirementsii) Validating them against the project objectiveiii) Identifying the criteria such as quality objectives and quantitative requirements for assessingthe success of both the final product and the process used to create itiv) Identifying the framework of the solutionv) Preparing a template of the frame work of solution to illustrate the project feasibilityvi) Preparing relevant charts to demonstrate the techniques of executing the project and itsdifferent stages
