IS&T Projects

Project Definition
A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result.  A project differs from a service ticket in the following areas:

  • A project usually takes more than 40 person-hours of work and coordination among multiple departments.
  • A project is unique and has not been done in the past; it has a single combination of resources, cost, schedule and objectives. A service ticket however is not unique and can be replicated in its description and solution.
  • Service tickets tend to focus on current, immediate needs, while projects include future needs, significant enhancements or changes to a current system.
  • A project has a well defined scope, while service tickets have reduced and specific objectives.
