The use of a phased approach provides simplified solutions and, as a co-product of simplification, control. Early establishment of clear objectives, adherence to the disciplines to conceive and evaluate multiple options and rigorous, frequent review optimizes plans. This process results in operationally proven components while minimizing risk.
Phase 1 identifies team members, project roles, responsibilities and schedules. A successful project requires an understanding of the current environment, the first step in this phase. The six step provide a proven method to capture, format and analyze the data used to develop the master plan.
this phase is a seamless extension of the planning phase. In this phase, the conceptual design solidifies functional descriptions; pre-bid requirements, specifications and operational characteristics are developed. As in Phase 1, the separation of activity into discrete steps assures a smooth flow of information
