  • Can anyone please help me understand what this all means, ine of the users asked this question -

    I have some question below regarding MSP - PWA workspace

    1. Is it advisable to log issue, risk using PWA - workspace?  if not, what kind of issue, risk log that we can put on? Is this only for strictly for the workplan?

    2. Does the PWA have rules on disk space? We are expecting about 280 RICEFWs and each would have an individual Register which  may require  a certain disk space that PWA admin / manager has to anticipate and to adequately provide for.

    3. What are the other restrictions in using this issue and risk.

    is there any way we can find out the max storage capacity, if yes how??

  • Its really a very wide question .  To answer your questions:

    1. It all depends on the organization if they want to track the issues & risks of project. But definitely It is always a good practice in project Management system to log the issues/Risks at the project level.The benefits of risk management in projects are huge. You can gain a lot of money if you deal with uncertain project events in a proactive manner. The result will be that you minimise the impact of project threats and seize the opportunities that occur. This allows you to deliver your project on time, on budget and with the quality results your project sponsor demands. Also your team members will be much happier if they do not enter a "fire fighting" mode needed to repair the failures that could have been prevented.

    Examples: http://www.cs.unb.ca/profs/fritz/cs3503/risk.html

    - Workspace is created at the a project so It should be at the project level, You can also manage risks at the program level/portfolio level also.

    2. You will need at least 80 GB for installation of web/app/sQl server that depends on organization capacity. 

    3. You can consider security /customization/workflows & organization needs using Risks/Issues
