dc.description.abstract The dissertation covers the establishment of a project from the point of view of a project manager. The document refers to examples where possible to illustrate the actual process through which a project goes during the life-cycle of the project. The first chapter provides an introduction to the context of the project and informs the reader of the type of project which the dissertation discusses. An overview of SCAD A (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems is discussed followed by field hardware to highlight the environment of typical engineering projects in the automation industry. An introduction to project management is discussed to set the context of the dissertation in motion. The second chapter covers the relevant theoretical stages of a project starting from the early stages of defining the project scope through to the project closure. Each of the stages in the project are dissected and considered within the context of a typical SCAD A oriented project. The third chapter is a case study of the "Jwaneng SCADA Project," which is the name assigned to the project from this point onwards. The project illustrates a typical project which an engineering project manager will manage. The project covers the details of the work involved in the project by passing through all the stages involved in an engineering project. Each stage of the project is illustrated by making reference to appendices containing project specific documents. The project is considered from the point of the original development of the project plan through to the completion of the project. This involves extensive controlling and ensuring that the project is running smoothly. These basic principles are illustrated in the document and aim to inform the reader on the successful dissection and implementation of a proper engineering project plan from start to finish. en_US
