Departmental Annual Plan

ArchSD would not be satisfied with our achievements and takes initiative to pursue continual improvement. To this end, we formulate Departmental Annual Plan (DAP) every year which encompasses our targets and objectives. At the same time, cross-functional review meetings are held regularly to review the progress towards the targets. Our DAP 2019/20 has been outlined in four key areas and the followings are the highlights of our major achievements during the year:
