    2.0 Stock taking of equipment
    3.0 xxxxxxxxxx
    4.0 xxxxxxxxxx
    5.0 xxxxxxxxxx
    6.0 xxxxxxxxxx


    Based on the deliverables, produce a more detailed WBS. You are to use the brief outline of the main scope above and further breakdown to create more details work packages E.g.

    7.0 Requirements
    7.1 xxxx
    7.2 xxxx

    Task 3: Schedule planning

    Based on the activities that was derived in the previous step, provide the duration of the activities carried out.

    Activities Duration
    1 Requirement
    1.1 Arrange meeting 2

    You are to use this information together with the WBS information in Task 3 to create a MS Project (refer to Appendix for more instruction). Take note that not all tasks should be sequential (one after another), some of your tasks has to be in parallel

    Your project start date should be 4th Nov and should update the project calendar if there is any holiday (if there are no holiday, specify any date during the project as holiday )

    Based on your MS Project Gantt chart, answer the following


    1a) Specify the holiday dates below
    _______________________________________

    1b) When is your project start date, stop date?
    _______________________________________


    2) From the chart, list the critical tasks using the Task ID number.

    _____________________________________________________________

    2) What is the duration of the whole project in terms of number of days?



    Task 4 : Project Quality Management
    Your project team has set up the system and is performing testing with user. Some problems are being discovered based on user feedback. Think of what might be some possible problems that users may face and represent the information using the Pareto chart and list out which are the problems that are considered more critical based on the chart.

    Problems Number of users commented
    Network too slow 4
    Not familiar with the setup 20
    Xxxxxxx 15



    Task 5: Project Human Resource Management

    You are at the testing stage of the project and you need to test out the system with some existing customers. You need to clarify who need to do what for the testing. The staffs involved are
    Resource Name Initials Position
    You U Project Manager
    e.g. Nelson N Network Engineer
    e.g. John J Sponsor
    e.g. Sam S System Administrator

    - Determine the customers to be targeted for testing
    - Develop the test plan
    - Conduct test plan
    - Review results

    Based on the above information, develop a RAM (responsibility assignment matrix) similar to the one shown below:


    Tasks Person in charged
    Determine the customer
    Develop test plan
    Conduct test plan
    Review results

    Task 6: Communications Management
    Prepare a communication plan involving the sponsors, Team members, management. The communication plan must answer the 4 W's and 1 H's. An example is shown below

    Who What When
    Management Monthly Status Report weekly




    Task 7: Project Risk Management
    The files that the software development team members use in their work will be stored in the file server. The file servers and client PCs will be connected to the same set of network equipment.

    The information in the server is streamed to the client PCs in real-time and it is very important that network downtime should be minimized.

    Also, all the PC and servers are connected to the internet via the network equipment to enable the team members to access resources from the internet

    Based on the information above and your own information gathered, try to identify the different risks and grade them in terms of Probability and impact. Also try to come up with the necessary measures to prevent the risk from happening or reduce the impact. An example is shown below



    Risk Probability Impact Response Type
    Equipment hardware failure Low High -spare equipment available -mitigation


    Appendix

    You are to assign the resources to the relevant tasks in your MS Gantt Chart and show it in the Gantt Chart in your submission (Chart 1). Remember to save the MS project as a baseline at this point of time.

    2) Assuming that during the project execution phase, the delivery time for one of the equipment too 2 weeks longer that what you have planned, update this information in your Gantt showing the updated information and the baseline information together in a single chart.
