    Project Plan Check - District4Move .pdf

    Directions


    1. Using theDistrict4WarehouseMove WBS.xls provided, create a Microsoft project plan for the District 4 Warehouse Move project. Use the PDF document,Project Plan Check – District4Move, to check your work to be sure you have created your starting project plan correctly.  Microsoft Project is required for this task. If you have not yet downloaded OpenProj, please click hereand follow the directions to do so now.

    Note: you will need to insert a column to include your WBS codes, then you will need to sequence the tasks to show tasks by work package. It may help to review the Microsoft tutorial, Sequencing tasks in a project:http://www.project-open.org/en/project_tutorial


  1. Based upon the details in the WBS and the project case, determine which tasks need to be completed first and which tasks are dependent upon other tasks to be completed prior to starting. Using this information identify predecessors in your project plan’s predecessor column. Complete the predecessor column by entering the line number of tasks that must be completed in order for each task to start. This will create your project timeline.

    Note: This is a critical step in the process to developing your critical path. It may help to review the Microsoft tutorial, Creating relationships between tasks:http://www.slideshare.net/dmdk12/creating-the-network-diagram-and-gantt-with-openproj


  2. Using the View Network Diagram functionality within MS Project, determine the critical path for this project. In a MS Word document, list the activities that are on the critical path. Considering the risks identified in the risk table below, identify which risks would be most likely to increase your project timeline. Justify your responses.

  3. Submit both your completed project plan and your MS Word document.
