Binay KumarSamanta "Coal Project Responsibility Scheduling Model", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V44(4),146-152 February 2017. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group

Sustainability in mining depends upon right project design and timely execution. Because of unforeseen geo-technical problems, some project activities have to be prioritized, requiring more attention of project officials by monthly scheduling and monitoring. Coal Project Responsibility Scheduling Model ‘mbo’ was developed for responsibility monitoring on monthly basis. Analysis was done by Key Result Areas (KRA), Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Threat or SWOT Analysis, Managerial Effectiveness. IPR found important between superior, subordinate and colleagues for teamwork in projecting position-wise responsibility. Objective Setting by Action Plan, Responsibility Charting by Decision Chart by Confidence Factor CF. With experience as General Manager in a large mining company, computerized model program ‘mbo’ on key tasks for different management positions has been designed on key tasks for different management positions. Sample run (mbo.bat) for a particular project for a particular month shown.
