Question:

This assignment is designed to test your capabilities with a range of PM analytical techniques.

Task

The planning phase for a Network Installation project has generated:-

  • A Work Breakdown Structure. Table 1
  • A probabilistic estimate of Normal, Optimistic and Pessimistic durations. Table 2
  • A set of costs and durations for crashing purposes. Table 3
  • A set of resource costing data. Table 4
  1. Produce a basic schedule, using eg a Gantt chart which clearly shows:-
  2. The project duration based on Normal task durations.
  3. The project critical path.
  • The total project cost.

Clearly state any decisions you have made, assumptions and outcomes.

The project sponsor would like the project to be completed by March 1st 2017.

When would you need to start in order to achieve this.

  1. b) Apply a Probabilistic technique (PERT) and produce an AON network for the project using expected time. Explain/estimate:-
  2. How (and by how much) this differs from the normal time predicted in a)
  3. The probability of completing 3 days earlier than your normal time.
  • The duration if you want to be 99% certain of completion.
  1. c) The project sponsor would like to know the cost of completing the project up to  2 working weeks quicker.

Crash the project using EITHER a “manual” technique OR Excel Solver.

In either case provide an AoA diagram.

If you crash manually you will need to provide a concise narrative of the method you used and the final version of the network.

If you use the SOLVER you will need to provide evidence of the constraints used.

In either case, provide a copy of the cost v duration graph.
