Having a thorough project schedule, which is continually monitored
and updated, is critical for a project to be successful. This assignment
will build off the Unit 2 WBS and personnel chart that you created in
Microsoft Project. Please open that file and proceed with the below
tasks. Note you may want to review and incorporate feedback from your
instructor from Unit 2 prior to completing this assignment. There are
also instructions in the Unit 2 Project that tell you how you can
download and install MS Project at no charge.
Prior to starting the assignment please watch the following videos:
Now that you have watched the videos, complete the following:
Set the beginning date to your project to the current date and then
add in the predecessors to each of the tasks. Note you do not need to
put predecessors on the heading or groupings – just the tasks where work
is performed. You will see the dates will automatically update based on
the durations that you populated from Unit 2.
The goal here is to allow project to automatically compute the project timeline and end date for you.
Now show the critical tasks in Microsoft Project.
In the Gantt chart view, set to show the Critical Path.
Summarize in a Word document what tasks are part of the critical path.
Your project may or may not have resource constraints. A resource
constraint would be called out by the red icon to the left of the task.
This will commonly happen if you have multiple tasks occurring in the
same timeframe, yet the assigned resources do not have enough time
within that timeframe to complete the work.
Take a moment to write down the project end date and total duration.
Complete resource leveling by choosing “Level all” under the Resource tab
Did your project end date change? By how much? Offer a couple
sentences within a Word document as to why the project end date did or
did not change.
Ensure to submit your Project file and your Word file for grading.
