This is a great opportunity for the students to demonstrate their ability: Selection of a case project; Appreciate the potential of theory in managerial decision making and problem solving, and take managerial responsibility by designing a practical course of action (rather than merely making recommendations). A report covering the following points should be prepared: Select a project at your target company Provide background of the case project Develop the project charter of the case project Conduct of systemic literature review describing and discussing the different classification of project life cycles and their associated phases and choose the best option for your case project Develop work breakdown structure (WBS) of the case project featuring 4-6 levels and 20-30 boxes Develop schedule plan (Activity List featuring 30-50 activities) including durations, sequencing, with milestones, deliverables, and network diagram of the case project A report of 2000 words summarising your report must be submitted on the due date. Your report must have a cover page duly completed and signed, and it has to be fully referenced in Harvard style. In completing this assessment successfully, you will be able to Effectively present project planning, which will help in achieving ULO1 and ULO2, this in turn will help you in achieving CLO-1, CLO-3, CLO-5 and CLO-7, which collectively with other unit learning outcomes will help in achieving GA2, GA7, GA12.

Q1. You have been hired by lnnovative Solutions to plan the development of a web site for Sydney Flowers (SF). They have decided to set it up on a local server and some of the test team need operational training. You have identified the major task headings, durations and dependencies as shown in the table below. Everyone will be working 5-day weeks. Draw a network diagram showing all the tasks and their dependencies (abbreviate their names if necessary). Arrange the tasks to achieve the shortest time to complete the project and determine the number of weeks it will take to complete the project. (10 marks) Calculate the slack or float time for each activity, on the understanding that many tasks can be run in parallel if dependencies permit (3 marks) Finally, list the task numbers that form the critical path.

Given the following information for a one-year project, answer the following questions. Recall that PV is the planned value, EV is the earned value, AC is the actual cost, and BAC is the budget at completion. PV = $73,000 EV = $70,000 AC = $75,000 BAC = $170,000 a. What is the cost variance, schedule variance, cost performance index (CPI), and schedule performance index (SPI) for the project?                                                                                          (6 marks) b. How is the project doing? Is it ahead of schedule or behind schedule? Is it under budget or over budget?                                                                                                          (3 marks) c. Use the CPI to calculate the estimate at completion (EAC) for this project. Is the project performing better or worse than planned?                                                (3 marks) d. Use the SPI to estimate how long it will take to finish this project. Is the project performing better or worse than planned?                                                                                                      (3 marks) Q3. Instructions: Read the following Case Study carefully, then answer all the questions below under the heading Section C Questions. Background You have been asked to prepare a Project Proposal for a restaurant, who wish to extend their current operation by adding a page to their existing web site. They wish to set up an online ordering system for Takeaway Orders, which will be a scrolling menu and a “Chat” window on the same screen. They will also require a new PC at the shop’s takeaway counter with a new broadband link to the internet. The idea is that the customer will send their requests via the chat window. The shop’s counter person will respond with any required requests for extra information and agree a pick-up time. From then on, the order will follow the normal process for takeaway orders. In addition, the broadband link will be used by the Waiters in the main Restaurant reception (on an existing PC), to receive emails from that existing feature on the web page. These emails are mostly requests for Table Bookings, which can then be confirmed by return email. Standard IT Project activities must happen. Page | 10 Asia Pacific International College Pty Ltd.
