In this project management case, Dr. Jinky B. Bornales, Vice­ Chancellor for Research and Extension at the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology, has just sealed a deal of partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) for the establishment of a FAB LAB inside her university. But, her plans for this fabrication facility are thrown awry when the project – originally intended to have one stakeholder – suddenly has three. Bornales must now craft a project scope for the FAB LAB that satisfies all three stakeholders: the university, DTI, and the international FAB LAB Foundation.

Teaching Objectives

After reading and discussing the material, students should:

  • Define the term “scope” and identify the project scope of the FAB LAB Mindanao project by examining and resolving the different stakeholder's needs.
  • Classify the five phases of project scope management by assigning the activities that Bornales has done to the five phases.
  • Develop a scope management plan for the FAB LAB Mindanao project.
