Hello, I can really use some help with this project.
Part One: PLC Exercise
The intent of this assignment is to familiarize you with different PLCs from various industries. Additionally, this assignment will help you develop an in-depth understanding of relationships between project management processes and a PLC.
- Create a generic PLC and describe its various phases. You may use Microsoft PowerPoint or other software (for example, Microsoft Excel) to create a simple graphic depicting the different phases of a PLC.
- Discuss the various project management process groups (initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing) and explain how they relate to the phases of a PLC.
- After you have completed the life cycle analysis, discuss the similarities and differences among the life cycles of construction, information technology, and business projects.
Part Two: Final Project: Completed Project Plan and Presentation (Due in Week 5)
The final project flows from Week 1 to Week 5. For the final project, you need to choose a project topic and submit it for your instructor’s approval. The instructor may assign a project scenario if the proposed project topic is not deemed adequate to meet the learning objectives of the course.
After the approval, you will submit specific project deliverables each week. In Week 5, you need to submit a final written plan and a presentation of the project. You are encouraged to use Microsoft Project (or other project management software tools), but its use is not required for this introductory project.
