An organization is best able to complete any task or project by the implementation of a project scope. A project scope is used to define the resources and steps or goals that need to be taken in order to complete the project as expected. If an organization is to install new hardware and ensure that it is fully functional and operational, they will need to develop and review a project scope with each team that will be involved. In order to acquire new hardware, an organization will need to delegate some funding based on the amount of hardware and what particular hardware is needed. A project manager will need to request funding or search through the annual budget limits for the organization and the department requiring the new hardware installed to determine what they are able to apply. Each team that will be involved in the hardware installation will determine on what hardware is being installed. For instance the HR department requires new desktop computers and phones. First of all the local desktop support team will be the major supporting asset to the installation of the hardware. This team will be establishing all of the desktops software programs and making the new desktops accessible for the users. Next there will need to be some assistance with the network operations and/or communications team. This team’s goal will be to adjust any firewall settings and security protocols on the network to remove the old IP/MAC addresses and configure the network with the new ones. This way the old systems cannot be used as a way to bypass security settings. Once all installation of the hardware is successful and all appropriate connections are established, testing and monitoring can be done to ensure the newly installed hardware is functioning correctly.
Budgetary limitations are always top priority and the biggest...
