Description

Well planned work is the key to success in managing a project or facility. Many large or small projects have management systems that are excellent in collecting history, such as monthly costs or shipments, while other systems produce spectacular plans for estimated costs and schedules. However, one of the tools for making management decisions is a control system that describes authorized work, schedules near term small increments of the work and identifies all resources that are needed to accomplish the work. That is the planning phase. Then, as the work is in process, the system periodically reports the status of ... continued below

Description

Well planned work is the key to success in managing a project or facility. Many large or small projects have management systems that are excellent in collecting history, such as monthly costs or shipments, while other systems produce spectacular plans for estimated costs and schedules. However, one of the tools for making management decisions is a control system that describes authorized work, schedules near term small increments of the work and identifies all resources that are needed to accomplish the work. That is the planning phase. Then, as the work is in process, the system periodically reports the status of the schedule and the cost. Then a comparison of plan to actual is analyzed and any significant variances are identified for management action, should it be required. The WMCO/DOE contract has included the requirement to implement a management control system known as Cost and Schedule Control System Criteria (C/SCSC), which is a system defined by DOE Orders. Thus, the intent of Task 9 of the WMCO Transition Plan was to study the management control system in place at FMPC and to prepare a plan that would enhance the system. The objective of the revised management control system would be to provide a usable management tool to measure accomplishments to plans and to identify Problem areas where management attention is needed. The system would also satisfy C/SCSC. This document presents the reports on the work tasks formulated to be part of the management system studies.
