JIRA Project Setup

Hello Everyone,


I work for continuous improvement engineering department and we want to start utilizing JIRA to add all the daily task. I need some recommendation on how can I setup my JIRA to make it more easier to export report ?


For example: We work with all the departments like sales, Supply chain, Manufacturing ,Maintenance regarding their continuous improvement initiatives.


Can you please recommend some effective way to setup all this in JIRA? One suggestion we have right now is to have everything under one project as a task(Departments) and then create subtask and use label for each department but I believe this is not the systematic way to do this.


Please let me know your suggestions.


Thank you for your help.

  Can you explain a little more about your business process and how you work.  Is each initiative treated like a project?  Do the initiatives have inner dependencies? How do the different departments interact and collaborate now?  Is this how you see them working and collaborating in the future?

Hi Brant,

Please find my comments below:

1) Yes each initiatives treated like a project (Example Barcode Implementation at the warehouse, Return material process improvement)

2) Initiatives does have inner dependencies (we gather requirements, data or we ask them to test the new process) but all the work is done by my team

3) Yes we work with different departments like Sales, Manufacturing, Logistics, Purchasing, Maintenance for their process improvement projects. 

4) We do get basic emails to trouble shoot issues from new processes or request for process trainings


What is your recommendation ? Thank you for your help.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.  I would suggest an individual project for each initiative.  This will make is easier to see how many active projects you have at one time, how the work is distributed over the projects, will allow you to collaborate more efficiently on projects with individuals outside your group, more easily report on projects, etc.  It seems like a better fit for your business practice.
