PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR BIG KOLA COMPANY

QUESTION

 

1.    PROJECT SUMMARY

 

Since the advent of specialised fruit drinks in the market the market share of cola as a drink has been eroded. This is the reason by the Big Kola Company is worried about but the CEO instructs and consents that” if you can’t beat them, join them”. Earlier Grape Juice Market was quite flourishing because of the advertising bombardment of grape juice as a major anti-toxin drink and many benefits attached to it. But seeing the increasing competition in the grape juice market also has lead to decreased market share and the profits as well.

That is why the result of various surveys and market researchers have shown that there are three other potential drinks which can provide high-margins to the Big Kola Company and they a5re cranberry, pomegranate and blueberry. All the three choices which have been selected after through market research show that they have high levels of anti-toxins too.

  • Pomegranate- 71% harmful free radical eliminating property
  • Blueberry – 33% Anti-toxin property
  • Cranberry – 20% anti-toxin property.

 

Thus after research Pomegranate is the obvious choice because of high level anti-toxin eliminating property and market potential is much higher than other potential juice products with higher profit margins too. Moreover if the company wants to plan global expansion then Asian and Middle East market is quite potential as it is already familiar with the taste of pomegranate (Gray, Larson and Pinyarat, n.d.).

The commencement of this project takes place from 1st July 2012 and at the end of the project a new product line will be developed that would be Pomegranate Juice drinks.

3.1 Project Organisation

The Project Manager works under the CEO of the company and has the overall responsibility of the project. He will need the support of Marketing Manager, Technical Project Manager and Quality Manager for successful launch of the product.

 

4. SCHEDULE & BUDGET

4.1 Work Breakdown Structure

The work Breakdown Structure which is shown below depicts all the project activities:

 

 

Figure 1: WBS Structure for Project

 

 

4.2 Schedule and Milestones

In order to estimate the efforts for the project and to plan the activity sequencing we make a schedule which supports all the tasks we have decided in the WBS and along with that complies with the resource plan also. Then we need to define the project milestones based on the chosen development strategy and all the critical events on the project schedule which can be seen from the milestones table shown below:

 

Milestones Description Milestones Criteria Planned date
M0 Start Project Budget Release  
  For example the project goals and project scope is defined PRS or SRS is reviewed Stakeholders are identified  
M1 Start Planning    
  For example the Product Lifecycle Objectives Scope and the concept is defined  
M2 Start Execution    
  For example Lifecycle Architecture for Product is defined Resources are committed, Requirements are agreed upon, and  Project plan is reviewed  
M3 Confirm execution    
  Alpha version Architecture for project is reviewed and Stability of project architecture is checked.  
M4 Start introduction    
  System test Passed Draft Documentation and coding of the new functionality is  finished  
M5 Release product    
  Planning product launch Product system tested, review the documentation  
M6 Close Project    

 

This project schedule should be regularly updated by the project manager every month.

 

 

4.3 Budget

We need to calculate the budget based on the cost estimates for various project activities

Category Budget for period of 1-July-12 to Project Completion( in US$)
M0-M1 M1-M2 M2-M3 M3-M4 M4-M5 M5-M6
Human Resources ( Internal) $25,000 $25,000 $25,000 $25,000 $25,000 $25,000
Human Resources (external)   $5,000 $7,000   $10,000 $5,000
Purchases $50,000 $60,000 $20,000 $25,000 $10,000 $12,000
Equipment $45,000 $30,000 $20,000      
Premises $1,00,000          
Tools $25,000 $30,000 $10,000      
Travel Costs $5,000 $7,000 $5,000 $2,000 $2,000 $2,000
Training $2,000 $5,000 $5,000 $2,000    
Review Activities     $7,000 $5,000 $2,000 $1,000
Other $1,000 $1,000 $1,000 $1,000 $1,000 $1,000
Total 253000 163000 100000 60000 50000 46000
Total Cumulated $6,72000

Thus the total cost for the project which has been estimated is $ 6,72,000 from milestone M0 to the M6 the final stage of project completion

The resource allocation clearly indicates that the marketing Staff, R&D and the legal staff is being over used during the whole project and that is why it is showing up in red.

 

4.5 Development Progress

 

After Three months that is on 1st September 2012 a Progress Report will be generated to track the development of the project just to check whether the project is moving according to the project scope and objectives or not.

 We will develop a Project Status Report as on 30 September 2012 which will provide clear and true status of the project to the whole team and at the same time keeps the management informed about the difficulties, progress of the project and issues. If we make the project Status Report on regular basis, which is the task of the manager we can easily cover the issues or time lags or resource allocations in the project to lead it to timely and successful completion. The Report is listed below (Project Connections.com Template, 2006):

 

 

Key Accomplishments in the last Quarter

  • Surveys have been completed for the Fruit drink
  • The Product Specifications have been set
  • The Shelf Life Report has been generated
  • The Nutrition Report is also complete

Upcoming Tasks for this Period:

  • The important scheduled milestones will be coming in the next quarter like quality testing
  • Distribution channels will start in the upcoming phase of the project
  • The legal formalities will reduce any kind of legal risks which might arise while product launch and the quality standards will be properly checked and tested.

Major Issues

  • One of the major issues which would be rehabilitation of the equipments right on time because any delay in it will delay the production.
  • Another issue is striking the deal with the fruit suppliers is also very critical because it has to be struck by this time and that too at the right cost.

3.    Risk management

 

In this case we need to assess the risks which might arise in future in the project and how will we manage the risks. All the risks which will be identified will be documented and assessed and prioritized with the help of Risk Management plan by the Project Manager itself. It will also be helpful in defining the mitigation and contingency measures and the persons responsible for handling the risk. The Risk management plan is updated every month and needs to be communicated to all the stakeholders by the project manager. With the help of Monthly project report the risk status is being reported to the line management too on a regular basis (Meyer and Kolb, n.d.) . A brief overview of the equipments, technology, budget, scope, people and product is necessary (Symonds, n.d.)

 

5.1 Risk Identification

 

  • The growing rate of inflation might result in suppliers raising the cost of fruits while the project is ongoing.
  • The growing amount of inflation might increase the cost of the project this will have adverse effect on the budget.
  • There might be some workers who might suffer from any disease while the project is progressing and can cause delay in the project.
  • The lack of communication between the team members or between the staff and manger might lead to hampered quality of the project.
  • The legal staff which will be hired might delay the appointment or postpone the meeting which might cause delay in the task.
  • Attrition might happen in between the project when a group member might leave the company and join competitor.
  •  Security concerns might arise in such case so all the data should be properly secured before the new product is launched.
  • The stakeholders might show some resistance about the new fruit drink and not satisfied with the market or the packaging of the Pomegranate Fruit Drink.
  • The consumer is not found to be happy with the packaging or shape of the bottle when product is test marketed, this will cause delay in the product launch.

5.3 Risk Response

 

 

Risk Event Response Contingency plan Responsible Person
1 Reduce Signing contract or agreement with the supplier in advance Project Manager
2 Reduce Proper panning and resource allocation in proper manner Project Manager, Client
3 Share, Reduce Informing the Project manager at right time, try to get help from outside Project manager
4 Reduce ,Share Friendly environment and team spirit Project Manager , Staff
5 Reduce Should have contact details of other legal advisors too Project Manager  ,Client
6 Reduce Contract with staff  members Project Manager, Client
7 Reduce Strict security software’s in company Project manager, Technical Staff
8 Reduce Agreement where the sponsor should pay for changes Project Manager , Client
9 Reduce Satisfaction for everyone should be guaranteed Project Manager

 

6. Quality Assurance

 

Assuring that the project quality is maintained is the prime motive of every quality project developed In the Big Kola Company’s Project. A quality project should surpass the needs and the requirements of the customer and that is why a quality project should always cross the expectations of the customers along with their need all through the product lifecycle. Few Points which should be kept in mind for a quality project are (Billows, 2011):

  • Usage of latest technology to attract consumers
  • Fast updating like tetra packs for fruit drinks should be used
  • Quality tests should be of latest standards
  •  The employees and customer records should be compiled and secured in perfect manner.
  • Report generation should be facilitated by the project.
  •  Products records or customer records entry should be easy and fast.
  • The packaging of the fruit drinks along with flavour should be as per customer needs
  • It should have low calorific value keeping in mind the health conscious generation today.
  •  Nutritional facts should be mentioned on the packaging

 

7. Conclusion

Thus in this whole project the quality standards are being maintained. The WBS, Gantt chart, network, diagrams is generated based upon the project scope and goals and objectives. The risk has been assessed and solution to handle them is also given.

6. Quality Assurance

Assuring that the project quality is maintained is the prime motive of every quality project developed In the Big Kola Company’s Project. A quality project should surpass the needs and the requirements of the customer and that is why a quality project should always cross the expectations of the customers along with their need all through the product lifecycle. Few Points which should be kept in mind for a quality project are (Billows, 2011):
•    Usage of latest technology to attract consumers
•    Fast updating like tetra packs for fruit drinks should be used
•    Quality tests should be of latest standards
•     The employees and customer records should be compiled and secured in perfect manner.
•    Report generation should be facilitated by the project.
•     Products records or customer records entry should be easy and fast.
•    The packaging of the fruit drinks along with flavour should be as per customer needs
•    It should have low calorific value keeping in mind the health conscious generation today.
•     Nutritional facts should be mentioned on the packaging
