Not Idea Solution Just Helping Material to Understand this Question.




Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM) 

Project roles (who do what) and responsibilities (who decide what) must be assigned to the appropriate project stakeholders. 

Roles and responsibilities may vary over time. Most roles and responsibilities will be assigned to stakeholders who are actively involved in the work of the project, such as the project manager, other members of the project management team, and the individual contributors. 

The roles and responsibilities of the project manager are generally critical on most projects, but vary significantly by application area. Project roles and responsibilities should be closely linked to the project scope definition. 

A Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM) is often used for this purpose. On larger projects, RAM s may be developed at various levels. 

For example, a high-level RAM may define which group or unit is responsible for each component of the work breakdown structure, while lower-level RAM s are used within the group to assign roles and responsibilities for specific activities to particular individuals.
A structure that relates the project organization structure to the work breakdown structure, to help ensure, that each element of the project’s scope of work is assigned to a responsible individual.
– Shows who does what (x=person, y=phase). The most important feature of the
RAM is the participatory development process involving all stakeholders.
Show who is participant, who is accountable, who handles reviews, who provides input and who must sign off on specific work packages or project phases.
