Student Project of the Year Presentation
The Collaboration Bus Project by The Incredibles
(Rajan Anand, Darren Birmingham, Alan Bader, and Biren Desai)
The Incredibles (Rajan Anand, Darren Birmingham, Alan Bader, and Biren Desai) from the Stevens Institute of Technology class on Project Management and Leadership are winners of the New Jersey Chapter of PMIís Student Project of the Year award.  They will present their paper on The Collaboration Bus Project.  This class was taught by Dr. Aaron Shenhar, highly recognized within the project management profession and a strong supporter of our chapter.

The goal of The Collaboration Bus Project is to develop rule based software drive infrastructure that allows users to dynamically program the telecommunications system via a simple web interface to meet such needs as reducing mean time for recovery for network tickets, on demand notification of network troubles, higher level of system automation, generic system for event filtering and task configuration, seamless collaboration between various entities, and honoring requests from external customers.  These needs must be conveyed in a well defined unit called user rules that can be enabled or disabled at will.  The web interface with all the required functionality needs to be completed within 18 months.  Hear how The Incredibles plan to initiate, execute, and track the success of this project. 

Student Paper handout can be downloaded.
