Project Description

Our team is seeking to develop a database backbone for the Husky Air Company. In the following proposal, our team will attempt to outline and
explain what our proposed solution for the revamp of their current data storage system. Our goal is to create a database system that will keep
Husky Air's day-to-day operations more efficient and effective. Database systems organize and catalog data to better aid in using information
effectively. Husky Air's current data organization system is ineffective for the changing market and to keep their company competitive;
revamping the back end operations will help move them forward.

Revised Project Plan

Discussion-
The project was shortened as a whole. It was also rearranged so that the shorter, simpler tasks could be completed more quickly. This way, more

people could address the concerns of the more time consuming projects and complete them faster. By doing this time could be eliminated from

each step evenly instead of removing time from deadlines for projects that might require the most time.

The budget was lessened proportionally. While cutting the budget of smaller activities, this means that the larger projects would not lose as much

budgeting in case of error. Also employees would not have to be paid as much in total due to the shortening of the project schedule.
