  • Richard Golding United Kingdom The most expensive phase is phase 3, production, the likely reason for this is resources utilised to complete the phase; for example effort from people from both within the organisation and from external contractors so in the instance of say an office relocation project this stage would require the removals company, the IT department, the buildings maintenance department / contractor and so on. The least expensive phase is phase 1 as this involves the least resources to accomplish, such as key stakeholders, board of directors and these would be for set meetings not as a continuous process as in phase 3.

  • Olajide Bamidele United Kingdom Good to understand the four basic methodological phases of managing a projects. Every project requires Investigation, Planning & Design, Production, Monitoring and Evaluation.

  • Tanga Chawora Zimbabwe Project Management Methodology: The third stage which is Production, is the most expensive stage Because all the other stage either a build-up to the third stage or are a result of the third stage. This is the core of the project where visible and tangible project activities are displayed. Most resources are exhausted during this stage. The least expensive stage is the first stage which is Investigation, It is during this stage where research is carried out. The gathering of information which is essential for planning purposes, this however is least expensive since the task at hand in most cases do not require a lot of resources as compared with other stages.

  • Sánjìv Shakya Nepal Project management methodology... First Phase of Project Management methodology is called Investigation. In this phase Project Manager Investigate about his project. And this phase requires minimum labor. And this phase can be done through Research and Survey. Second Phase is called Planning and Designing. This phase requires planning and design of a project as per the research and survey or as per the result of the investigation. This phase is the major step for the success of the project. Third Phase is called Production. Which is the main working phase of the Project which requires optimum numbers of labors for the maximization of production. And this phase must go on according to the plan and design which are the result of Planning and design phase. Last phase is called Monitoring and Evaluation, which Investigate on its production and research on its progress report and plan to make it better than past of the better future welfare state of the production. Thank you.

  • Ize Adava United States of America From the graph, the production stage looks to be the most expensive- which it is in reality. The reason being the production stage is the core of the entire exercise, every other activity is designed around ensuring its success. The least expensive stage is the Monitoring &Evaluation bit.

  • Margaret Akinyemi United Kingdom The project management methodology refers to the four phases of project which are investigation, planning and design, production, evaluation and monitoring. This helps the project run properly

  • Tim Murphy Ireland Production phase is most expensive, but maybe this is the result of poor investigation at the outset. Maybe continual monitoring and evaluation will have a positive effect in the initial production period, and may reduce the production costs to some degree. It could be a number of causes, but if they are arising at production stage, ongoing evaluation should pick up some of the shortfall in this area. Unforeseen costs, labour, material, product rectification, poor design could al contribute to this. Just enforces how important phases 1 and 2 are at the early stages.

    • Mamoudou Sylla Cote D'Ivoire I totally agree.If the the stages 1 et 2 and not properly elaborated, this situation can drive all the project toward failure.

  • Cynthia Driskell United States of America The chart shows production phase as the most expensive. This may be because more man-hours, services by others, materials, etc.. are needed to complete the project, The investigative phase is the least expensive on the chart and is likely due to the the preliminary nature of the work to be done. It wouldn't make sense for the overall cost of a project to be born by the completing the initial steps needed to launch a project. Therefore, tasks associated with the investigative portion of the project will by necessity account for a smaller percentage of the project costs.

  • Shopman Moyo South Africa Which part of the project will be affected most in terms of costs when say the completion is delayed?
    2014-11-08 16:11:25

  • Shopman Moyo South Africa The most expensive phase is the production phase. This is due to the fact that in this phase both cost and expertise in terms of human capital are at play. Experts will have to be hired with their skills and that is expensive,

  • Mzimkulu Brutus Somtyhali South Africa The third phase i.e Production is regarded as the most expensive phase. But who can elaborate to me how or why is it so expensive? The project or any kind of bussines depends on proper planning or design. Good planning always leads to succesful bussines. The foundation / Initiation / planning and desiging of project is the most imperative phase of which is not expensive but very important.

  • James Singizi Zimbabwe The production phase is the most expensive phase and the investigation phase is the least expensive. This might be due to the amount of resources committed to the various phases. Production phase would, in my own opinion, require more resources and labor compared to other phases

    • Mzimkulu Brutus Somtyhali South Africa That true James, during production you need more resources, you execute the plan, different skills are needed from different people to do what is reqiured.
