[Estimate Cost is a process of developing an approximation of monetary resources needed to complete project activities.]

Contingency Reserve

[Contingency reserve is money assigned to the project and allocated for identified risks for which contingent responses are developed. Generally, how much money is reserved and its rationale are included here.]

Budget

[Once the project costs or cost baseline is determined, a time-phased project budget is developed. Project budget shows how the project cost will be incurred by appropriate periods (months, weeks, quarter, etc.) during project performance period. Describe how your budget is developed.]

Cost Control and Monitoring

[The approved project budget with contingency reserves serves as a baseline for project control. This section usually include project approach to monitor actual versus planned performance, approach ( e.g. Earned Value analysis), and how any cost changes will be managed.]

Performance Monitoring

[Describe your approach to monitor planned versus actual performance and matrices that will be used]

Project Reports

Social Needs:

As the organization is good enough understanding the social needs correctly since in this pandemic every customer has a wish to do shopping through online and moreover mobile application system where services are done without point of physical contact.

Measurable Project Goals and Objectives

The online grocery websites to be executed by the Kroger Supermarket provides a solution to the lag time that periodically causes complaints among the customers. Therefore, the company needs online platforms for improving service delivery and reduce the lag time. Moreover, it is geared toward driving the connection between the online inventory and the cash register.
The moment an item is purchased, it will be eliminated from the list. This will inform the customer that an item is within the stock, will be ultimately examined to be out of stock, which is unpleasant moment for the customers.
Enhancing the customer experience will lead to high impacts in terms of revenue and volume of sales. Therefore, it is against this backdrop that this part seeks to develop measurable objectives that denote the organization’s reason to carry out this project.
The project bring best customer experience in finding the products what they need in the stores when the physical visits are made through instore navigation system scanning.

High-level Project Description and Boundaries
Kroger is among the leading supermarkets and has grown by developing acquisitions and possessing its outlets. The online website will concentrate on specialized food and drink, which comprises the diversified product portfolio, including electronics and retailing. The process will also provide green or fresh vegetables. There will be the procurement of supplies, establishing the marketing, procurement, and other operations. It is setting the store operation policies, which entails the hour of operations.

High-Level Requirements
To build a successful online retail store, the project shall need a considerable number of resources. For the project, the resources identified for achieving different meanings in the project. One of the requirements is the domain name and address in which the internet users will access the online retailing website. The online website will need a hosting provider to allocate space on the website server for the online retailing webpage to keep the required information. There is a requirement for a payment processor, which will be used to provide the consumer with a chance of paying for their product online. The availability of internet data is an essential requirement for the product to enable such a website’s successful operations
Funding is another essential requirement, which the sponsor will fund. The project is estimated to take 15 months, and the funding will be needed for remuneration of the salaries, licenses, maintenance, consultations, and rents—the anticipated cost of about $10 million. Moreover, human resource is another vital requirement because they will be needed to work on the project. They include the IT specialists, HR managers, advocates, banding contractors, and coordinators. The estimated financial plan for human resources is $2 million. Lastly, equipment will be used during the project, comprising the furniture, computers, and other related resources.

Overall Project Risk

The execution of these software application enhancement or improvements could cause delays in customer experience. The enhancements are modified to reduce the amount of time it takes inventory to be removed from the system. The upgrades may lead to slow networks that increase the amount of time it takes to receive their items. There could also be items marked out of stock in the inventory that have not to be placed back on the shelf. After all the enhancements are been deployed into production, still there are chances of having issues in customer’s end such as unable to find their exact need.

High Level Constraints and Assumptions
During chartering on the online website undertaking, it is assumed that there are many issues in the implementation, which could be linked with workers and failures associated with technological improvement. Moreover, the absolute accuracy of the project will be challenging to control and monitor. To initially evaluate this undertaking and its progress will be carried out at particular locations. Thus, based on this backdrop, the following are constraints and assumptions in this project.

Constraints:

· Time limitation: The project has got its own start and end date where there is project schedule which is fixed and project needs to be completed within the deadline.
· Compliance constrain: In project while managing the requirements needs a process change from As-Is To-be where the everything needs to be changed or modified from the beginning.
· Financial limitations: The project has got its own budget, still even though there is a contingency allocated, the project team needs to be accomplished within the allocated budget.

Assumptions

· All the products/items will be scanned into the platform when they arrive and before entering to the market in online application system.
· The products are stocked in suitable locations and returned within a reasonable timeframe as in the retail domain, the requirements often change a lot where modification needs to be happened.
· Promotional products will be taken away from the products available alongside the damaged products.

In addition to the ‘Tips for Completing the PMP Assignments’ found on the course homepage, I have put
together the below ‘aid’ to help you better see the relationships between Business Objectives and
Project Objectives.

The sample project is fictional and your project may be very different but this example should help you
understand how Project Benefits tie up thru Project Objectives all the way up to Business Objectives.

Clearly communicating the relationship between Business Objectives and Project Objectives is critical for
project success. Your aim for this assignment is to identify and clearly communicate these links for your
own project. I.e. show how your project is important for meeting Business Objectives.

Note: This aid does not cover section 2.3 the ‘Project Purpose or Justification’ narrative – which is a very
important component of the Unit 02 assignment and must also be completed to get full credit.

Unit 02 Assignment “OBJECTIVES”

(This sample does not include the required project justification narrative)
