Planning and Controlling Computer-Based Systems Development.
Rudy, Harry L.; And Others
A project management procedure used in conjunction with the IBM Program Control System (PCS) is described. Information is given on how the combination is used by the Florida Department of Education to control the cost of data processing projects and to ensure their completion on schedule. The first section of the paper describes the project management procedures, discussing background material, the Information Systems Section of the Department of Education, and needs identified by the Section. Also reviewed are the seven phases of the management procedure: 1) problem analysis; 2) problem definition; 3) systems analysis; 4) systems design; 5) program specifications; 6) programing and implementation; and 7) systems evaluation. The second part of the paper deals with the Project Control System, with emphasis upon network and system concepts. The concluding section of the report describes the application of the project management procedures and the Project Control System to the development of a large computer-based system run by the Florida Department of Education. Topics discussed include the history and development of the computer system. A summary and some conclusions are also presented. (PB)
