Developing a Defendable Project Plan for a Lifestyle Centre

The aim of this assignment is to develop your planning and analytical skills in the context of a complex project orientated environment.

You must develop a defendable project that will be implemented within a new Lifestyle Centre (LSC). This project is situated in a village of 10,000 inhabitants. The LSC is situated on an area that was acquired from the Lancashire Council of dimensions 120 metres by 80 metres. LSC involves the following physical spaces:

  • New village library facility/Learning information support
  • Multi-faith centre
  • Gymnasium
  • Crèche/Mums & Toddlers
  • Multipurpose functional spaces
  • Car parking facilities

Your defendable project will be in any area that can be addressed within the LSC facilities, (e.g. IT, security, building, interior design, social mobility, Alcohol anonymous (AA), Ramblers club, Photographic society project, Historic Lancashire, Silver surfers, and Cafeteria). Your area of project focus should be clearly stated at the start of the assignment, as your title.

The submission must include a project schedule of at least 40 activities and clearly show the logic of activity sequencing and relationships between the activities.  For any type of simulated project chosen, the minimum completion time of the project should be six calendar months.

All dependencies, constraints and resources are to be included. This report will contribute to 60% of the final assessment of this module. A word count of 2,400 is expected for this section of the assignment.

The assignment is as follows:

Section 1: A detailed project schedule applying procedural logic, and clearly showing dependencies, constraints, and resource implications. Supply a list of all assumptions you have made in constructing the schedule. Please take note: - It is given that the project start date should be Monday the 10th of January 2022.

Section 2: Using the schedule developed in section 1, set the Baseline of the project, and track the progress of project after three calendar months on Friday the 1st of April 2022. Assume that due to inflation, COVID-19 and other uncertainties in the UK environment, there is an increase in cost of 10% in the activities of the project at the beginning of the project. The durations of the activities of the project for the first three months are affected by 15% increase in time due to COVID-19 lockdown, supply chain delays and other market forces affecting of the project. Produce a report that presents values for the following:

  • The percentage of work completed three months after your project starts date.
  • The Actual costs (ACWP) of the project on 1st  April 2022.
  • Planned Value (BCWS).
  • Earned Value (BCWP).
  • Schedule variance.
  • Cost variance.

Section 3: Give a reflective report on the exercise you have just completed in sections 1 & 2.
