This week, you are planning for project closure. This may be just as important as project initiation. You will also provide detail and a status update for the activities that you have performed to date on your network integration project. As part of the status and requirements update, you will produce a final network infrastructure diagram that represents the requirements and new network configuration or topology for the capstone project. You are tasked with creating a final presentation to communicate to your constituents on what the project is and summarize all of the major areas already captured in your Word document.
The deliverables for Week 5 are as follows:
â€¢Project Closure Plan â—¦List at least 5 major closeout categories.
â—¦Identify the activities that are needed to complete each of these closeout categories in a plan format.
â—¦Describe how each activity will assist in closing out the project?
â—¦Include an analysis of whether the project was successful or not.
â—¦Provide a list of lessons learned and what can be done differently in a future, similar project.
â€¢Project Status and Requirements Updates â—¦Include a final status update of your actual project status.
â—¦Update any final challenges, risks, and change requests. â—¾Describe how they have been handled.
â—¦Draw a network infrastructure diagram to represent the network integration project requirements, and describe each major component in the diagram. (Visio is a good choice for creating this diagram.)

â€¢Title Page â—¦Course number and name
â€¢Table of Contents â—¦Use autogenerated TOC â—¾Be sure to update the fields of the TOC so it is up-to-date before you submit your project.
