Your task is to complete the project management document to provide a comprehensive idea
and scope of the project. Your submission should include the following documents:
1. A complete project plan (PERT & GANTT Chart)
2. A complete Net Present Value Analysis
3. A Return on Investment Document
4. A payback Analysis Scenario
The above documents should clearly be developed using a project tool that is available to you.
You should make necessary assumptions in deciding your basis that would yield to the above
documents. You are required to state your assumptions clearly and package the documents in a
professional report to the top management for their consideration.
XYZ, as indicated in the previous assignment specification is interested in a 5-year cycle as an
initial period for the process changes. XYZ is interested in a cost-benefit analysis so that their
investment options can be seriously debated. To be able to conduct a real cost benefit analysis,
assume a 6% base rate.
Your report submission should be in four parts. The first part should provide a comprehensive
analysis of your research. In this document you will discuss at least two scenarios, and
elaborate on them taking into account the scenario on hand. This is a simple document, written
with supporting argument as to various aspects highlighted, includes proper references etc. You
will base this report on your research conducted. The report should be contained within 2000
The second part of the report contains the three modeling aspects. These are:
1. A complete Net Present Value Analysis
2. A Return on Investment Document
3. A payback Analysis Scenario
You must develop necessary formulas to create the above, and annotate how these are
constructed. You must also attach a test strategy to assure that your formulas are working
correctly. You are expected to show both correct and incorrect working details. Basically your
test strategy will demonstrate how your modeling is working. This test strategy should be
contained within 2 A4-pages.
The third part of your report should provide a set of recommendations as to how the project can be managed. This will discuss various aspects that are covered in Chapter 5 of the text. You
can choose appropriate aspects to suit your modeling techniques.
The final part is the development of a complete project plan through PERT & GANTT Chart
