Master Child Process


What is a Master Child Process?

As the name indicates in such process there exists a Master process and n number of child process which will be managed by the Master.


When to use Master Child Process?

Most often every project is an amalgamation of many tasks. These tasks could be stand alone tasks or with dependencies on other tasks. The progress of all these are to be tracked centrally to drive completion of the project on time. For such instances, Master Child Processes can be used

Conceptualization

Break up the tasks based on the flow of execution. Understand the dependencies between tasks. Capture the flow of execution using a flow chart. Create flowchart using the following steps:

  • Number of boxes of flow chart = Number of phases / stages
  • Each box is a stage or step and translates to a child process.

Formulate a table that will provide more details regarding the tasks such as the owner of the individual tasks, time allotted for execution of each task etc.

Once the conceptualisation of project execution on Wooqer is complete, move to implementation.

Implementation

Implementation of master child process follows certain rules:

  • The child processes are created first
  • All child processes have same coverage and periodicity
  • In the child processes identify opportunities where “RA” rule can be applied.
  • All tasks in a child are Level 1 tasks, ie “Requires Action” tasks
  • Last task of child process is the closure task + milestone (ie if any other child process is dependent on this task). The milestone task is a multiple choice question with only one choice.
  • None of the child processes are multiple record enabled (Master Child processes do not work on multiple record concept)
  • After the creation of all child processes, Master process is created.
  • For master process choose coverage as process, and select all child processes. The periodicity of the master will be as that of the child processes.
  • On the master process, click on manage master to set dependencies among child processes.
  • Activate master and child processes. Assignee assigned to Master process will also be assigned to all the child process.
