The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s
(NJDOT) Capital Project Delivery
(CPD) web site provides guidance,
information on procedures and
up-to-date documents used to support
delivery of capital projects. The
CPD web site is the primary source
of this information and is easily
Types of available content are:
Summaries give an overview
of the requirements to
move a project through
a phase, such as Concept
Development or Preliminary
Engineering. A summary
includes a brief description
of the high-level objectives
for that phase. Access
to more detailed information,
such as diagrams, flow
charts and guidance documents
can also be found on these
Summaries give an overview
of a particular process
area such as Quality Management
or Scope Management, and include
a brief description of
high-level objectives of that
process. Access to more detailed
information such as flow charts
and guidance documents can also
be found on these pages.
- Flow Charts show how a phase or a process works across the entire organization. Activities performed in the execution of the phase or process, such as the creation of a formal scope statement, are shown in the flow chart. The logic of how one activity leads to the next is shown with arrows as dependencies and sometimes a decision symbol for more than one direction of flow. Top Down Flow Charts show a simplified flow of the phase or process and can be followed from the "top down" or
from beginning to end. Swim Lane
Flow Charts group the activities
by organization or role allowing
for easy identification of responsibility
for particular activities. Activities
on the Swim Lane Flow Charts are
linked to Process Activity Description
pages which, if selected, will
open details on a particular activity.
- Diagrams show how components of a phase or process relate to each other. Network diagrams are similar to flow charts and show how formal work activities are related. They are developed at a detailed level, and used as packages of work to be managed separately. Work Breakdown Structure diagrams show the products of a phase or process and how they relate to each other. A Work Breakdown Structure diagram shows how individual products may be grouped together to create a top level product such as the Concept Development Report.
Descriptions contain activity
descriptions, predecessor activities,
successor activities, responsible
roles, templates, examples, forms,
and guidelines. They link to
actual documents, such as procedures
and forms. Select a particular
activity from the flow chart
to go to its Process Activity
Description page, and then move
back and forth between a Process
Activity Description page and
its respective Swim Lane Flow
- Guidance documents describe work performance in detail. Some documents contain steps that are mandatory but most are used for guidance. Guidance documents are typically in PDF format, so the content cannot be changed, but can be viewed and printed. Links to guidance documents will be included on the Phase and Process Summary pages and on the Guidance page.
- Templates which
are documents that can be downloaded
by users and used as a basis for
a report or as a form to be completed.
Templates are usually in RTF or
XML format so that any user can
access and use these files without
any specialized software.
Ways to use the site:
- Start with a Phase Summary or Process Summary page and identify the process link for a description and the links to flow charts and guidance documents. Access any of the listed guidance or flowcharts, showing how the process works across the organization.
- Choose a guidance document on the Guidance page from a list of published documents grouped by phase or process area.
- Enter words in the search field for a list about delivering capital projects.
