 Project Success Criteria: The goal is to complete the
project within 12 weeks for budget no more than
$200,000. The project sponsor, Dr. Rob Mohammad, has
emphasized the needs and details which are to be taken
care of. To meet this goal, it is crucial to identify the
bottle-neck in the operation processing, then analyze the
code and check the product. These two methods will
save processing times and also save resources and times.
If the project takes a little longer time to complete and a
little higher cost than what we have planned, this project
still is still considered as a success project, if it allows the
company to save money and times in business
operations and at the same time is utilized in providing
services to its customers.
