16.1 Project Management

As an aid to future landscape management planning projects, we made an effort to record all steps in the design process and the approximate time required to accomplish these tasks. The first step of this process was to create a Gantt chart. This was an attempt to visualize the temporal relationship of each task in relation to the project as a whole. The second step was to keep accurate account of each design team membersí time spent on each task. These tasks were then sorted into 17 major categories. Each member of the design team was required to keep a design journal in which among other things they were required to keep track of the length of time spent on each task.

The Hoodsport Watershed and Transportation Plan took approximately 4000 man-hours to complete. This equates to 101 40-hour weeks, or 1.9 man-years. These numbers are broken down by category below.
