The scope of the project identified are given in the following list:

  • To analyse the recent technology and the network architecture for the development of the network framework.
  • To identify the resource required for the development of the network
  • To create a proper communication plan and identification of the ethical issues with the network
  • To analyse the stakeholders and identify their requirement
  • To analyse the cost of the hardware and estimate the budget for the development of the project.

Logical Structure

The current network of the hospital needs to be upgraded because it lags in meeting the requirement of the user and providing efficient service to its users. A centralized network solution is proposed for the hospital that is needed to be developed using the modern standards of the network and help in providing different service to the doctors and the patients using the network. The network is developed for maintaining a centralized control and providing accessibility to the users based on their levels. The datacentre of the hospital network is needed to be secured and the medical history of the patients should be recorded in the system for benefitting the user to get the access of the information from any geographical locations. The benefits of the project is discussed and a logical structure of the network is created for the identification of the risks and the expected outcome from the project.

The flow of information between the different network device should be analysed for maintaining a control on the flow of information and secure the transmission of data between the users. The server and the network hardware should be secured from unauthorised access such that the information are secured from external access and the project should be completed within the estimated time and budget. The upgrades in the network should be done according to the requirement of the user and thus the requirement should be analysed and the network should be designed such that it can tolerate fault and no errors are faced by the user while transmission of data. High speed connectivity should be provided to the user such that the response time is minimum and the performance of the network is high.

Conclusion

It can be concluded that the development of the network for the hospital would help in improvement of the scalability and meet the expected outcome of the project. The project is reviewed according to the requirement and the flow of the information between the activity is analysed for the development of the network solution. The time of the project is analysed for the completion of each of the activity of the project within the proposed duration of time. The scope of the project and the estimation of the time and cost is important for crashing of the project and completion of the project within the proposed duration of 12 months.

The scope of the project identified are given in the following list:

  • To analyse the recent technology and the network architecture for the development of the network framework.
  • To identify the resource required for the development of the network
  • To create a proper communication plan and identification of the ethical issues with the network
  • To analyse the stakeholders and identify their requirement
  • To analyse the cost of the hardware and estimate the budget for the development of the project.

The following table is created for the development of the stakeholder plan:

Stakeholder name

Roles and Responsibility

Network Designer

To design the network framework and research on different secure design and develop the network

Project manager

To manage the activity and monitor the progress and complete it within deadline

Project planner

Create project plan aligning the availability of the resources

Network engineer

To analyse the technical requirement and reduce the error in the network configuration

Network consultant

To suggest different techniques for the improvement of the project.

Network analyst

To analyse the vulnerability and the scope for the development of the network

Tester

To test the network configuration and the connection for the improvement of the network.

Financial manager

To arrange budget and cost for the management of the management of the resource.

Project Sponsor

To allocate cost and resource for management of different operations

Functional requirement

  • To update the current network infrastructure of the hospital
  • To analyse the requirement of the user for the development of the network
  • To maintain a track on the user using the network for identification of illegal activity
  • To restrict the unknown user to use the network solution
  • To make the network available to the user 24*7
  • To minimize the network down time and increase the security
  • To have sufficient bandwidth that can support the growth of the network
  • To divide the network into smaller subnet

Non Functional Requirement

  • To have sufficient storage for storing the records of the patients and the doctors
  • To eliminate redundancy for storage of the data and optimizing the storage space
  • To use redundant link for connecting the network devices
  • To eliminate the errors in the configuration of the network.

The project is crashed for recalling the critical path and completing the project earlier of the deadline of the project. The critical path is analysed for the identification of the minimum cost of crash and an analysis should be made for the identification of the minimum crash cost of an activity. Since we have the crashing goal of 12 months. We need to complete the project on or before and the it can be achieved with the implementation of an additional cost and finish the project within the proposed duration.

It is used for the identification of the changes in the requirement of the project and accessing the potential changes that are related with the parties associated with the development of the project. The stakeholders should be identified and a brainstorming should be done for the identification of the stakeholders.

The confliction in the interest of the stakeholders can cause an ethical issues in the project and the blame for the issues in the project should not be shifted to the workers. It is the responsibility of the project manager to accept the blame and the safety standards for the networking hardware should be meet by selecting the secure device. The radiation from the device and the configuration standards can also cause ethical issues and it should be mitigated for making the project a success.

The project plan is created in Microsoft project by the project manager by identifying the challenging tasks that should be overcome for the development of the project. The goals and objective for the development of the hospital network should be identified and the development should e divided into different phases for its execution. A communication plan should be created for the identification of the impact on the upgradation of the different service for the project and the deployment plan is created consisting of the checkpoints, time plan, cutover, testing and authentication and production use.

The stakeholders associated with the development of the project should be involved in the project sign off such that it is verified that all the requirement are met and the resources that are engaged in the project development are released. The payment for all the invoices should be cleared form all the departments and the success of the project should be celebrated with the team members.

It is recommended that the risk should be identified at the preliminary stage of development of the project and should be eliminated for increasing the efficiency and security of the final project. An analysis should be done on the constraint and the vulnerability of the network for aligning the project development according to the requirement of the user. The database of the patient should be secured form illegal access such that it cannot be used from illegal use. The network configuration should be done aligning the requirement and security measures should be applied for the development of the network.
