The quality criteria used to evaluate the articles are:  Is your Wiki article relevant? • Does it address a topic that is relevant for project managers? • Is the purpose clearly articulated, i.e. what kind of problem the article addresses (and solves)?  Is the Wiki article usable? • Does the article provide hands on guidance? Can the reader (at least prototypically) apply the method after reading the article? • Depth of treatment: Is the article interesting for a practitioner or academic to read? Does it make a significant contribution beyond a cursory web search? • Quality of the summary: Does the summary make the key focus, insights and/or contribution of the article clear?

The idea is based on the Lecture which explain the meanings of: Project, program and Portfolio, showing BMW's' models. Starting from this concept, I would like to develop, using the same managing system of BMW models on the market, but applying it, to prefabricated houses and to their entire industry. This is an hard concept, both to understand and to improve, because is not common in the housing industry. There are already numerous prefabricated Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no content must have a name projects on the market, carried out by important industries in the sector. These companies are responsible for providing the customer with a complete home, built according to needs and requests. Therefore, for each individual project, the company will have to adapt its production each time according to the guidelines received. My idea, on the other hand, is based on allowing companies to mass-produce their own prefabricated houses. Once completed a comprehensive and exhaustive portfolio, customers will have to adapt their requests, depending on the products provided by the company. In this way the company can recover large sums of money by applying a series construction process that remains unchanged. At the same time you can save a lot of time, because you do not have to change the production methods.

include at least 1 reference:

How does it compare to the “status quo” of the standards – is it part of it, or does it extent them? Discuss your article in the context of key readings / resources provided in class. Substantiate your claims with literature

Annotated bibliography

Provide key references (3-10), where a reader can find additional information on the subject. The article MUST make appropriate references to the and reference material provided in class – either incorporating it as a source, or critically discussing aspects that are missing from it but covered by this article. Summarize and outline the relevance of each reference to the topic (around 100 words per reference). The bibliography is not counted in the suggested 3000 word target length of the article.
