This week, you are planning for project closure. This may be just as important as project initiation. You will also provide detail and a status update for the activities that you have performed to date on your network integration project. As part of the status and requirements update, you will produce a final network infrastructure diagram that represents the requirements and new network configuration or topology for the capstone project. You are tasked with creating a final presentation to communicate to your constituents on what the project is and summarize all of the major areas already captured in your Word document.
The deliverables for Week 5 are as follows:
•Project Closure Plan ◦List at least 5 major closeout categories.
◦Identify the activities that are needed to complete each of these closeout categories in a plan format.
◦Describe how each activity will assist in closing out the project?
◦Include an analysis of whether the project was successful or not.
◦Provide a list of lessons learned and what can be done differently in a future, similar project.
•Project Status and Requirements Updates ◦Include a final status update of your actual project status.
◦Update any final challenges, risks, and change requests. ◾Describe how they have been handled.
◦Draw a network infrastructure diagram to represent the network integration project requirements, and describe each major component in the diagram. (Visio is a good choice for creating this diagram.)
