It is very important issue to create a proper project specification after selecting project when
carrying out with the objective for producing a product. (Kohli 2006 page: 69). After
preparing a suitable project specification it is important to identify present needs and
demands of the consumers, market possibility, any lacking in the market which will satisfy to
the customers. After that JP Apparel Company should assess the current resources of the
company that might be use for the new project. When a project produce a completely new
product it is not sensible to add all the character which the consumers are enthusiastic to have
in those products. The JP Apparel Company can be able to fulfil the features which they can
add according their final product specifications.JP Apparel Company can analyse the
resources of company by the Rad and Anantatmula (2005, page:167).

1.3 Specification for the particular project to implement
product or process:
The project specification is very important for understanding the real output which they are
willing to produce and plain understanding about the project. The clear idea and
understanding about the output is willing to provide can be a key factor which decides on the
failure or succession of a project. Barker and Rawtani (2005, page 74). There are all the
features of the outcome of the project in the project specification. And it will be helpful for
the customers to find out whether this product will be used for fulfilling their needs and

within four months from the beginning.
Project management, planning and implementation cycle:
By the project management and planning project manager can optimize that they have
sufficient resources to complete the project. The resources includes are manpower, skills,
commitment, budgets, equipments and systems. To make a project successful and acquire the
objectives, it is really hard to understand and plan for project cycle. The project cycle is
includes activities, performance of task for leading to success. (Forsberg, Mooz and
Cotterman, 2005)
After examining different aspects then the product specification for the project can be set that
can be goals and target of the company, customers needs and demands, present resources
whatever they have, and more resources for the future on order to complete this project.
Stone (2010, page: 12)

Stage 3:
3.1 Explain obstacles which hamper implementation project in
accordance with an approved specification:
When a new project will be select then its needs to run into implementation period, during
this time project manager should explain organisational business strategy with direction and
instruction to the project members. This is one of the hard works for the project manager.
After setting the project specification, it is very important for all the members of project to
follow the formal acceptance for setting project specification in order to complete the project.
Kerzner (2009.page:431)
7s model of the McKinsey (Robert H Waterman, 1980) can be applied for JP Apparel:

in order to complete the project and fulfil the corporate goals and targets.

manpower to ensure that JP Apparel has accurate platform to complete this project.

continue their style for the customers.

proper training to the employees for improving their skills in order to achieve

of JP Apparel should motivate to their employees in the proper ways.

important to achieve their objectives.

Several ways to meet the project specification:
1) Project manager should keep observation after launching business that everything is
going on according to the plan.
2) Customers interaction and requirements should keep for improving the product or
3) The professional management team of JP Apparel will control time frame and
productivity for running business cost effectively.

3.2 Improve right measures for monitoring and evaluating
process and outcome:
To complete the project successfully, it is very important for all project members to finish
every task properly. Gudda (2011. Page: 39). By the project tracking and reviewing, project
manager can ensure four main project variables like, performance, cost, time and scope that
are very important to complete project successfully.
Some key elements of the project tracking are given bellow:
Scope of task
Project well-designed
Success feature
Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
Work packages for hard way work for improving additional level
Estimate and Budgets
Supporting schedule
Funding plans
Quality management plans
Analyse about stakeholders
Analyse client and management.
Some essential elements that can use JP Apparel for monitoring and evaluating the
project progress and outcomes:
Analyse demand level of the product outcome
Consumption rate of resources
Data report of progress
Monitor the activities that all ready completed.
Quality of Project management
Risk assessment.

3.3 Assess issues in monitoring the implementation of the project:
The project manager should keeping proper monitoring systems through the whole project to
identify any features in the project operation. Also they can monitor and evaluate the
performances of the workers, activities of the project, tacking the resources consumption,
market situation and so on. Taylor (2007. Page: 141).
The 4 keys can apply JP Apparel for monitoring the implementation:
Time: The implementation should be completed by the deadline. If implementation
will not finish by the time frame then JP Apparel will lose money that is why it is very
important to complete project on time.
Resource: Enough resources are very essential to complete project successfully. JP
Apparel should make sure that they have enough resources like, technical resources,
human resources, financial resources and so on.
Action: JP Apparel should take proper action to fulfil their corporate goals and targets
like, communicate with stakeholders, hiring staffs, market survey, market segment
and so on.
Funds: To complete a project enough fund is very essential. Without sufficient funds
a project manager will not able to complete project properly. So JP Apparel project
manager should make sure that they have enough funds to complete this project
According to the law of Ireland:
Quality is the totality of features and characteristic of a product or service that bear on its
ability to satisfy stated or implied needs. (Ireland,1991).
Project quality should be considered at least 2 keys ways:
Technical quality: Calculate the number of defects and positive number
Observation of quality: Aspect can be calculated by customer association,
stakeholder approval and so on.

Stage 4:
4.1 Outcomes of the project in terms of the original project
The project outcomes may not be same according the plan because of rate of performance,
rate of the consumption of the resources, numbers of the completed task, and effectiveness of
the activities of the project. Friedlein (2001, page: 100).

Some outcomes that JP Apparel achieved:
Stakeholders approval
Satisfy customer association
Fulfil consumers needs and demands
Competitive cost
Unique product and service.
Some outcomes that JP Apparel not achieved:
Low invest low profit
Lacking of raw materials.
According to present market situation of UK 35000 is very low investment. I think if JP
Apparel invests more in this project then it will be more profitable business for them and they
will able to earn more money from this project.

4.2 Assess the outcome of the project:

ending products it will be easy for the project manager to identify the failure or success of the
product and if needs any refine for them. Some evaluating of the product are given bellow

4.3 Recommendation for improving the project:
According on our experience, one of the important issues which can cause an event to fail is
because of the consumers needs and demands. Most of the customers used to last minute
change to the requirements. If project manager fail to provide enough time line within the
project time frame then project will fail either in terms of fulfilling the of consumers
