Nokia, Irving, TX (Contractor) Nov 2014 – Jan 2016
Responsible for managing a team of 40 individuals both in USA and India; responsible for handling Central, South and
West Region all SCF creation requests (L1900, L700. U2100 and Modernization) Attended NI Market Project Meetings,
on a weekly basis.
Market Communication (NI PM, RF Lead)-Communicate target delivery dates for each site in the schedule (Use target
delivery date for batches).
Immediately communicate when site can’t be schedule because of issues like CIQ missing or not approved site
configuration (when in doubt about site configuration issues follow escalation plan).Communicate when sites are
delayed due to any issue that can’t be resolved within the day. Version Control File (to be used by Market RF, SDC,
Market Leads Roster Configuration table, Deliverables per config CIQ requirements Macro support, Port matrix issues,
Site trackers -> WO creation, communication with SDC, Site integration tracker -> Communication with NI PM’s.
Verified that sites in WO have the correct CIQ paths for the relevant configuration. Use site configuration cheat sheet
Recommend to color in green each checked cell that has relevant CIQ path or that should be empty and in red each cell
that has relevant CIQ path missing. WO must be made for sites with green CIQ cells only If Site configuration is not in
the approved configuration list, ask RF lead for Port Matrix and RFDS.SDC Communication.
Schedule work in batches each batch should contain ~ 40 sites. WO sent to SDC must clearly specify target delivery
date for each batch. Batch WO should be sent at least 3-4 days prior to target integration date. Ensured Batch delivery
target date should be day before target integration date.
Make sure Data fill scheduling process to work, it is of utmost importance updated Market Tracker’s in share point with
the required CIQ information (Site configuration, IPM paths) etc. The SCF scheduling team relies on that information to
issue the work orders to the data fill teams (SDC Chennai, India and Irving).
