1.Describe a potential timing issue that can occur early in a project and a potential timing issue that can occur at the end of a project. How would you address each of these issues in your project?
Projects have timing issues because of their temporary nature and unique outputs, those of ongoing operations. Timing issues that can occur early in a project, are when to bring people on board. Bringing them on before they are needed can be costly. However, if the project manager takes a chance with an important resource and that person is unavailable, the schedule will probably be delayed. The general solution to the first timing issue is to assign key players as quickly as possible. This helps establish good project planning, effective project culture, and early project progress. Of course, a project manager may need to negotiate not just for who will be assigned to his project, but also when they will be assigned. Timing issues that can occur at the end of a project include rewarding, recognizing, and releasing project team members. I would like to address these issues when to bring people on board, Get the team functioning actively, Plan for keeping a team motivated & on schedule when to reward & recognize the project team, When & how to release project participants.

Common Cause of Variation

Consider an employee who takes a little longer than usual to complete a specific task. I worked for a company called “DESTINE,” as a team of 20 workings on a project and the deadline was 48 days (about 1 and a half months) to complete the task, and instead, we took 50 days this is considered a common cause variation. Completion time would not have deviated very much from the mean since I would have had to consider the fact that we could submit it a little late. Other examples that relate to projects are inappropriate procedures, which can include the lack of clearly defined standard procedures, poor working conditions, measurement errors, normal wear and tear, computer response times, etc. These are all common cause variations.

Special Cause of Variation

special cause of variance refers to known factors that have effects on a process. Special causes of variance can usually be eliminated with adjustments to the processes, components, or methods. They may cause serious problems if they are not eliminated. Special causes of variances are not inherent and usually originate from technical problems. For example, I am a project manager of a software company, my project estimated 10 days to complete an excavation activity. When I started excavation, a technical problem occurred in the compile Panel of the execution. This malfunction delayed this activity for about 20 days. The problem is solved by fixing up the error code. This is an example of a special cause variation. Another example is that you were working with a shipping company to transport a generator for a hospital renovation project. The estimated time of arrival was 2 days. But the arrival of the generator took four days because of an accident on the highway.
