Ensuring Quality-at-Entry - Challenges in Frontend Management of Projects, Project Perspectives 2004, No. 1 PMI (2000) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge

By Nils Olsson and Sintef Industrial Management


assurance and uncertainty analysis is carried out early in each project, prior to the parliament's appropriation of the project. The paper summarises some of the effects of the Quality-at-Entry Regime. The major conclusion from our initial study is that the Quality-at-Entry Regime has increased the awareness about cost estimates of major governmental projects. In order to further improve the effect of the Regime, some identified issues should be addressed. One issue is related to the management of project reserves. Another issue is at what stage of the projects the Quality-at-Entry analysis should be made. Finally, one needs to address how to ensure a learning effect for the analysed projects, while at the same time securing the neutrality and independence of the reviewers who carry out the analysis
