project coordinator

The responsibility and role of a Project coordinator is as same as the project manager. The primary duty of a project coordinator is to set the project and each linked processes walking smoothly. The project team obviously needs the coordination of resources, information, equipment and activities. All these works should be done by a project coordinator in the primary stage for satisfaction. If the coordinator of the project can’t resolve any issue, then this case may goes to the project manager. Research shows that the strong correlation is present between productivity and the parts of the trusts. Trust is according to the effective communication, report and conflict management. The cultural differences are playing a vital role in making trust and the multicultural terms should be understood by the managing person.

This includes:
For each resource a specific project calendar can be set based on his working times like –standard, 24 hours, night shift or any customized calendar made for the project. Within the specific calendar set for a resource we can set up the individual resource’s schedule. We can mark holiday periods of the resource, change the working hours for a particular resource and also set the working / non-working days. All these are set on the calendar of the resource, but, no changes are made to the general base calendar which is common to the project.

Waste management is essential described as the collection, processing, recycling, disposal and transport of waste materials. Such waste materials are generated by human activities. Basically waste management is done to decrease the consequence of waste on people’s health, environment and other things in the nature. It is also recommended as the most effective way to recycle some of the resources. People can recycle old newspaper, glass jar, pop cans and many more. By doing, so you are helping the environment as you don’t dispose all these materials.

This includes:

1-What are Cost Resources

2-How to enter Cost Resource Names

A cost resource has only a cost value, no work related value. It does not have any time based parameters (like hrs.) associated with it. It also is not a consumable commodity. Eg. airplane tickets for travelling may be required for a particular task. These will incur a cost, but has work/ material related value. Thus, these don’t affect the scheduling also. These are added so that the such costs can also be tracked in the project plan. Other examples of cost resources can be costs for training, entertainment, dining, etc.

This includes:

1-What are Material Resources
2-How to enter Material Resource Names

Material Resources are resources which get consumed during the project. . E.g in a construction project, bricks, concrete, paints, etc. would be material resources. So, when we enter a Material resource, then work based fields automatically get disabled. MS project takes an assumption that materials are available infinitely. i.e. the materials we add in the resource sheet can be assigned to any number of tasks.
