The Avalon project execution method is based on a “zero funding model” approach. All resources and other contributions to Avalon are considered to be “in-kind” by the project participants.
The Avalon project kickoff is June 10th, 2009 and will end on November 20th, 2009. The Avalon project will schedule presentations and demonstrations for key industry events in 2010 such as Daratech, POSC Caesar, and FIATECH conferences.
Reporting of project status will be to project participants and to their sponsoring management.
Avalon will depend on the following external deliverables for its success:
Avalon will have four focus areas that will be lead by the following teams:
Once a work breakdown structure is established for Avalon, the project participants will be asked to resource these teams in their area of interest. The existing Camelot project participants, that have been and are actively working on Camelot source code, will be automatically nominated to the iRING Software Control Board. The Camelot participants that meet this criteria are Bechtel, CCC, Hatch, TCS and Zachry.
The Avalon project will meet every Wednesday on a regular basis starting June 10th. Meeting times will be set at 7:30 AM ET (GMT-5). The Avalon project team’s expected global distribution is extended from GMT-6 (Houston) to GMT+10 (Brisbane). Note that the first kickoff meeting is scheduled for June 3rd, 7:00 AM ET. Ad-hoc meetings will be scheduled by sub team activities on an as needed basis.
