Chapter 16: PLANNING FOR THE SUMMER GAMES
Mr. T. arrives at the office, I found a huge pile of documentation in black, loose-leaf notebooks waiting for him. On the huge pile of documents was an accompanying note on the engraved stationery of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, that says: “I had Hoolihan steal this from the States. With a head start like this, there will be no excuse for missing the summer year 2000 deadline.”. Also was Kenoros that was waiting for him. He had one of the black notebooks open on his lap. He look to the notwbook and see specifications from the FAA NASPlan contracts. He think that all of those projects ended up in litigation. Then he think that if Belok really wanted to help us, he might have stolen the specs from the French system, or even the Spanish system.
Mr. T. began scooping them up and loadmg them into Aristotle’s outstretched arms, and then into his own until there was only one notebook left. Kenoros voice came out muffled fiom behind the pile of black notebooks. “We take on too much,” the voice said, “because we are terrified of too little.” Osmun Gradish was still pleasant-seeming and still soft spoken. Mr. T. invited himself to sit in on the weekly staff meeting for the PMill-A project. Also present was the PMill product manager, Melissa Alber, Gradish’s boss.
Mr. T. shook his head and say “Our response to having the A-Teams overstaffed and overpressured was to set up B- and C-Teams. Now, when I’m feeling down at all, I just stop by Notate-C or PShop-C or Quickerstill-B or almost any of the others.”. webster say that the All projects are sacrificial pawns. But we shouldn’t think of them that way. We should think of them as training opportunities. Even if the work is frustrating and the deadlines hopeless, the team is learning to work together.
Belinda had been working for the past few days with the Air Traffic Control project group. Now she had them all focused on one of the recently pinched FAA specifications, the one covering the Radio Governance System. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is a governmental body of the United States with powers to regulate all aspects of civil aviation in that nation as well as over its surrounding international waters. Its powers include the construction and operation of airports, air traffic management, the certification of personnel and aircraft, and the protection of U.S. assets during the launch or re-entry of commercial space vehicles. Belinda conclude that in fact, it doesn´t specify a system at all and contains only vague descriptions that could be applied to various possibilities.
Belinda found some rules to follow the firts one is the spec needs to have a count of inputs and outputs. They can be named, sized, and counted. an the second one is if the specifications are ambiguous and the transformation policies are not clear, this will create a conflict.
