1. [10 points] Consider a commercial construction project with eight tasks: a. Prepare the foundation (10 days). Then assemble the building (4 days). b. When the building is assembled, start two tasks at once: finish the interior work (4 days) and

setup an appointment for the final building inspection (30 days). c. When the interior work is done, start two more tasks at once: landscaping (5 days) and driveway

paving (2 days) d. When the landscaping and driveway are done, do the painting (5 days) e. Finally, when the painting is done and the final inspection has occurred, arrange the sale (3 days).

Without using any project management software: (i) Create a PERT/CPM chart. Do not use calendar dates. First task should start on “Day 1” (ii) Estimate completion time. (iii) Identify the critical path for this project. (iv) List concurrent tasks. Concurrent tasks are those tasks that start at the same time. Submit your responses in a word or pdf file.

2. [10 points] You have been asked to conduct user training sessions during the implementation phase for a new information system. Consider the following tasks that are not ordered in a logical sequence: a. Send an email message to all department managers announcing the training sessions (1 day). b. Develop the training material (4 days). c. Request training facility (presentation room, presentation equipment, etc.) that you plan to use (11

days). d. Arrange to have copies of training material printed (3 days). e. Develop a set of powerpoint slides for the training material (4 days). f. Conduct a practice training session with the instructor who will assist you (1 day). g. Conduct the user training sessions (3 days).

Analyze the project carefully to determine dependencies among the tasks. Using Microsoft Project: (i) Create a Gantt chart that shows the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). (ii) Generate a PERT/CPM chart. (iii) Estimate completion time. (iv) Identify the critical path for this project. Also upload your Microsoft Project file.
