Project Charter [CLOs: 1, 2]

Scenario: Roto Air
You will be working  with the following scenario throughout this course. You are free to make  reasonable assumptions when facts have not been provided, but do state  them as you complete the assignments.

You are a  project manager for Roto Air, Inc., a successful manufacturer of  autonomous rotorcraft (drone helicopters) headed by CEO Jackie  Copperfield. You work at the research and development facility in  central New York and have been given the assignment of transitioning the  manufacturing processes for the newest product, the Quick Drop 100, to  its permanent manufacturing site in central Florida. The Florida plant  is non-union, has lower property taxes, and lower utility costs than the  New York location. You will be sharing an existing building owned by  Roto Air and used for assembly of other similar products. While floor  space has been allocated for your product, the specialized machinery and  tools must be procured. One of these machines is to be custom built and  has a lead time of 5 months. Normal support functions such as human  resources, facility maintenance, and manufacturing engineering are  already available in Florida. A manual with the product assembly  instructions and specifications is needed for training the new  manufacturing technicians and will remain your responsibility to  complete. An appropriate budget of $1M has been approved for first year  transition costs. Annual savings from the move are expected to be  $250,000 per year. The budget is controlled by John Golden, plant  manager in Florida. Manufacturing is scheduled to start in the new  location six months from today. You have a well-qualified team of four  other employees that are free to travel as needed from their New York  home to Florida. Although the team members have worked on many projects,  they have not worked together before. Team members are Jackie, Ken,  Jose, and Shawn. Upon successful transition you will return to your  responsibilities in New York.

This  week you will complete the project charter. Various publications and  organizations have differing contents for a charter; however you will be  working with the outline preferred by Roto Air. Using the information  provided, complete the steps below. 

  1. Compose a business case for transitioning the product to Florida.
  2. Prepare a scope statement for the transition project.
  3. Identify the most logical project sponsor and justify your choice with at least two supporting reasons.
  4. Identify the top level project schedule.
  5. Identify the overall budget.
  6. Specifies at least one state or national safety standard that the  manufacturing operation must comply with and explain the reason for its  selection.

Your paper must be 900 to 1200 words in length (not including  title and reference pages) and must be formatted according to APA style  as outlined in the approved APA style guide. Contextual (Level One)  headings must be used to organize your paper and your thoughts. You must  cite at least two scholarly sources from the Ashford Online Library in  addition to the textbook.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
