- Although Tiki is a great medium in which to develop documents like Design Inputs, Failure Mode & Effects Analysis, etc., formal design control systems require rigorous approval and control processes. This is especially true for industries regulated by government bodies such as the Food & Drug Administration, which has strict requirements for validation of software used in the design & manufacture of drugs and medical devices.

- As problematic as Microsoft Project can be, one of its key features is the ability to calculate and display the critical path of a project. (Why it's not always set up to do this by default is a mystery.) Any project of sufficient size being managed in an organization of sufficient project management skill is going to involve some application which can automatically highlight the portion of the GANTT chart which most directly controls the end date. Unless a critical path algorithm can be implemented in Tiki, any graphical scheduling features are likely to go unused in favor of MS Project or a similar app.

    + Here's a list of other environmental characteristics to establish the context of my commentary.
    +
    +
    • Global company, headquartered in the U.S., with R&D, manufacturing, sales, & marketing operations both in the U.S. and outside.+
    • Subject to strict government regulations in every market by the likes of FDA, Santé Canada, and so on.+
    • Primarily Microsoft infrastructure, including Office. (Resistance is futile.)+
    • Unified on Lotus Notes as our messaging & calendar system.+
    • Project schedules done as GANTT charts or PERT charts in MS Project.+
    • Homegrown documentation control system provides intranet access to all released procedures, engineering drawings, risk analyses, etc.+
    • Tiki was initiated and is still maintained as an external service, with only tangential involvement of internal IT.+
    • User base is still getting used to TeamRooms, after five years of exposure.+
    • Responses to Tiki range from small pockets of enthusiasm to small pockets of hostility, with wide swaths of apathy and/or confusion.+

    What Can Be Done With Tiki

    - Eric, Marc, Regis: Please write down the Tiki Features currently used in Tiki for PM.
    -
    -

    What Can't Be Done With Tiki

    - Eric: please insert your external tools that you use instead of Tiki. Explain why you don't use Tiki for that specific task.
    -
    - Marc, Nelson, Regis, Pascal: Evaluate if there is a way that we can use Tiki to solve the top sections problems and don't think of limitations. let's be creative, then we can sort them out by:
    -
    • Current Features (we can use now)-
    • Hacking a Feature (we can evaluate if it is worth it to insert into Tiki or better of getting custom done by one time coding)-
    • Building an entire feature (does it make sense for solution to be incorporated into Tiki or keep 3rd party solution.-

    -

    Tiki PM Architecture

    - Once we know what we can use Tiki then let's create subsections for each feature. Explain the use case for this feature in regards to PM and then document it and incorporate into Profile
