As a member of the systems integration team, you have planning
responsibilities. You have been tasked to develop a detailed project plan, to
identify alternative project completion dates, and to recommend an optimal project
deadline to top management.
You should do a Gantt Chart that will keep management temporarily
content, while you prepare your PERT/CPM analysis. You need an Activities
Listing Table, a Critical Activites Analysis Table, and a PERT/CPM
Network Diagram that displays the critical path. Of course, you will prepare a
report for management with the Background of this systems project, the project
deadline Issue to be resolved, the three project deadline Alternatives, an
Analysis of the three Alternatives, and your Recommendation.
Attached to your report should be a Gantt Chart, Activities Listing
Table, a Critical Activities Analysis Table, and a PERT/CPM
Network Diagram – 4 Attachments.
