A COMPREHENSIVE MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THE RAIL-BUS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT, HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT

THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN WHICH WOULD DETERMINE THE SENSITIVITY OF THE PATRONAGE OF THE SYSTEM TO CHANGES IN THE SERVICE PARAMETERS OF THE SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. THE AUTHOR PERCEIVES THE ROLE OF THE SYSTEMS MANAGER AS ONE OF COORDINATION BETWEEN ALL THE ENTITIES INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT. THE SYSTEM MANAGER WOULD ACT AS COORDINATOR BETWEEN THE PUBLIC BODIES AND PRIVATE FIRMS INVOLVED IN THE IMPLEMENTATION AND OPERATION. THE PROJECT WILL BE DIVIDED INTO THREE TASKS: (1) PREPARATION FOR THE PROJECT AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN; (2) IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROJECT AND THE EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN; AND (3) EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT. EACH TASK WILL CONSIST OF SUB-TASKS TO BE PERFORMED BY ONE OR MORE ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT AND SHOULD BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE NEXT TASK. PLANNING AND SCHEDULING WILL BE DETERMINED TO EFFECTIVELY CONDUCT THE PROGRAM. CONSTANT REPORTING, ANALYZING, AND EVALUATING IS THIS FIRM'S APPROACH TO PROJECT CONTROL. EACH ACTIVITY WILL HAVE A COST ASSOCIATED WITH IT. REPORTING PROCEDURES WILL PROVIDE A COST STATUS IN TERMS OF ACTUAL AND PLANNED COSTS. A SUMMARY PROFILE REPORT WILL BE PREPARED TO SHOW MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS WITHIN TIME FRAMES. A MANPOWER RESOURCES WILL BE REALLOCATED TO ACHIEVE SATISFACTORY PROJECT PERFORMANCE. THIS PROPOSED UNDERTAKING CUTS ACROSS MANY JURISDICITIONAL AREAS (PUBLIC AND PRIVATE) AND MANAGEMENT IS NEEDED TO SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROJECT. /UMTA/
