Progress report

diagram of the six sigma project management approach

Define phase: completed

The Define phase of the project involved engaging stakeholders of the project and establishing the governance and engagement structure. In this phase, the project outcomes and outputs were clearly defined. The Green ICT Project Plan (PDF 779KB) is the key output from this phase.

The utilisation matrix highlights the outputs and outcomes from this project are:

Output/outcome Reduce cargon emissions of ICT across the campus by 10% Reduce Energy Cost of ICT by 5% Increase the awareness amoungst stakeholders
Develop website to inform ANU community about the consumption, cost and ways to reduce energy of ICT X
Report energy consumption of ICT X X X
Report ways to reduce CO2e of ICT X X
Deploy ways to reduce CO2e in Colleges, service divisions, data centres and information commons X X

The is – is not diagram outlines in greater detail the scope of the project. This diagram organises the existing knowledge and information about the problem. Using this technique the project working groups can focus on additional problem analysis.

Is Is not
Energy consumption of facility operations (heating, cooling and lighting) associated with ICT and ICT Infrastructure (Desktop, Server, Data Centre, Network, High Performance, Imaging) Energy consumption due to other types of load

Measure: in progress

The project is currently in the measurement phase of the DMAIC approach to project management. In this phase data from the Colleges and the Service Divisions at ANU are being collected in order to develop the baseline carbon inventory of ICT. This phase would Investigate and record the data on the carbon dioxide footprint (CO2e) of ICT within ANU.
