Title: Report on cost delivery, efficiency and cost reduction through effective practices (1)

Lead: Naturalis

Due: M15 (Nov 2013)

Abstract

Report on cost delivery, efficiency and cost reduction through effective practices (1): The purpose of this document is to examine how cost is measured among providers of fauna, flora and mycota. This examination will take various research methods based on a pre-questionnaire, workshop and cost templates analysis. The report will consider also closely the recommendations of various deliverables. The investigation will continue onto a development of a follow up report D6.1.2 that is due in May 2014. The outcome of the use cases activities and cost information provided by partners and various stakeholders are taken into account and the evaluated result will develop strategies and recommendations on how the services being provided within the taxonomic community can be sustained on the long term.

Timeline

Introduction

Broader context

The deliverable will examine the cost of delivery, its efficiency and cost reduction based on the outcomes of the workshop, the feedback and results provided by various partners and stakeholders, the reports of various partners. By doing so, a list of recommendations can be suggested on how the services being provided within the taxonomic community can be sustained on the long term.

Methods

Methods used to capture cost service delivery will be explained here.

Purpose

The purpose of the report is to understand real time services and products delivered among taxonomy community.

Use cases

Various use cases are discussed during the workshop:

  • Writing Flora
  • Editing Flora
  • Publishing of Floras
  • Production of Floras
  • Data resources
  • The Biocase project
  • Delivery of taxonomic validation services
  • Scratchpads projects
  • Biodiversity Data Journals (Pensoft)

The workflows of the use cases are inserted per worksheet of an excel document; Annex 3 displays a number of examples of the use cases workflows

Long-term vision

  • Sustainability in cost of delivery towards an Open Biodiversity Knowledge Management System
  • Cost efficiency
  • Cost reduction


Current state of the art and the cost it generates
