Project Management

Project management is the discipline of carefully projecting or planning, organizing, motivating and controlling resources to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.

I am building a deck and need to sketch out the final stages of the project to scale.  Is there a free, shareable way to do this online?

It looks like the picture below right now.  The plan is to further stabilize the sub-floor and then put self-adhesive roll out roofing material over the top of it.

How do I sketch this out online, complete with a picture, so that it can be shared?

I am building a timeline. I have several tasks where the resources work 10 hour days 4 days a week. I built a custom calendar to reflect this. I have the approximate work hours needed to complete the tasks. I assigned the custom calendar to the resources and the tasks that are only done in 10 hour shifts/4 days a week. I entered the work hours and the number of  resources. It is calculating the duration for this work still based on 8 hour work days and a 5 day work week.
Is there any way to get it to calculate based on the 4 day work week and 10 hour work day?
I have Microsoft Project 2016.

I'm asked this question a lot... and while they do have different roles and different defined tasks... they also have an obvious and common tasks and responsibilities.

I would like to hear from a few other people here, as i'm sure a lot of the community here falls into one of these departments, and you might also have one of these titles.

Head of Product VS Head of Engineering VS CTO

What are their main tasks and responsibilities?

Dears,

I am in the process of learning Software requirements gathering (using the BABOK) and the IREB standards.

I am to use a tool and the ones I have come across (actually they were recommended by the trainers) are Visual Paradigm and Sparx System.

I found Sparx to be a little bit too complex, yet Visual Paradigm is not "that easy" too !
So I am confused and since there is some effort needed (learning curve) I would like to hear about experts about the right tool to choose.

The projects I will be working on (mapping in the tool) are mid-size projects. But I need to be able to do all the "actions" project management, database design, UML, use case, testing scenarios...etc...

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Azure 2017

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Azure 2017

Azure has a changed a lot since it was originally introduce by adding new services and features. Do you know everything you need to about Azure? This course will teach you about the Azure App Service, monitoring and application insights, DevOps, and Team Services.

I work in events and facilities management for a University and often have multiple projects to track as well as multiple work orders open with various other departments on campus (i.e., IT, facilities, custodial, dining, security, etc.). I'm looking for a better way to track and manage all these various and disparate projects. I'm fairly savvy with excel and am starting to get in to the more advanced features, but I want to make sure I use the right tool for the job. Based on the software I already have access to due to institutional licenses, my choices come down to Microsoft Excel, Access, or Project.

I'm looking for advice and opinions on which of the three would be the best choice. I don't mind a learning curve and don't mind doing front end work, as long as the payoff in the end is worth it. The main things I'm looking for are:

•Tracking work orders from multiple different departments. If I can create something in VBA to take the automatic emails I get through outlook every time I submit a work order and input the information into whichever program I end up using, so much the better.
•Assign employees to different projects either as the person heading it up or as the person that needs to follow up to make sure that the other department completes the work.
•Create reports to see project progress and timelines.
•Ability to set task dependencies.
•Ability to create multiple parts for each project/task.
•Ability to attach or link to supporting documentation.

When it comes to building apps, it's more than just writing code. And unfortunately, many people (and companies) forget that. In fact, the raw time it takes to build the app itself is only half the battle.

I have nominal 400 TB of replicated data that correspond to a one month backup retention on a 1Gbit fiber. time ago I had to stop replication, so I found myself with a backlog of 400TB to recover, at the moment I still have a backlog of 120TB but I can not go below that threshold, also I have a pending of more than 100TB, as I can do to end the replication in acceptable time? thus recovering all the pending.
