Ashford 2: – Week 1 – Assignment


Project Charter


Scenario: Roto Air


You will be working with the following scenario throughout this course. You are free to make 


reasonable assumptions when facts have not been provided, but do state them as you complete 


the assignments.


You are a project manager for Roto Air, Inc., a successful manufacturer of autonomous rotorcraft 


(drone helicopters) headed by CEO Jackie Copperfield. You work at the research and 


development facility in central New York and have been given the assignment of transitioning 


the manufacturing processes for the newest product, the Quick Drop 100, to its permanent 


manufacturing site in central Florida. The Florida plant is non-union, has lower property taxes, 


and lower utility costs than the New York location. You will be sharing an existing building 


owned by Roto Air and used for assembly of other similar products. While floor space has been 


allocated for your product, the specialized machinery and tools must be procured. One of these 


machines is to be custom built and has a lead time of 5 months. Normal support functions such 


as human resources, facility maintenance, and manufacturing engineering are already available 


in Florida. A manual with the product assembly instructions and specifications is needed for 


training the new manufacturing technicians and will remain your responsibility to complete. An 


appropriate budget of $1M has been approved for first year transition costs. Annual savings from 


the move are expected to be $250,000 per year. The budget is controlled by John Golden, plant 


manager in Florida. Manufacturing is scheduled to start in the new location six months from 


today. You have a well-qualified team of four other employees that are free to travel as needed 


from their New York home to Florida. Although the team members have worked on many 


projects, they have not worked together before. Team members are Jackie, Ken, Jose, and 


Shawn. Upon successful transition you will return to your responsibilities in New York.
