Question description


Specific Life Style Programme


Learning outcome(s) assessed

1. Develop detailed project schedules cognisant of procedural logic, dependencies, external constraints and resource implications;

2. Apply advanced planning, control and analysis methodologies, tools and techniques to complex projects

3 Understand and apply advanced concepts of modelling and simulation in order to predict outcomes of project schedules;

4 Critically evaluate planning, contract and analysis techniques to select defendable solutions for the mitigation of project overruns

Assignment Brief The assessment this year is in two assignment parts. The first assignment has a weighing of 60% and assignment 2 a weighting of 40%.

ASSIGNMENT 1 BRIEF

Module Title and code Project Planning, control and analysis-BN4010

Assignment Title: Assignment 1- Specific Life Style Programme

The aim of this assignment is to develop your planning and analytical skills in the context of a complex project orientated environment.

Outline of Task

You are required to develop a defendable project that will be implemented within a new Life Style centre (LSC) This project is situated in a village of 12.000 inhabitants. The LSC is situated on an area that was acquired from the Lancashire Council of dimensions 150 metres by 70 metres. LSC involves the following physical spaces:

  • New village library facility/Learning information support

  • Multi-faith centre

  • Gymnasium

  • Creche / Mums & Toddlers

  • Multipurpose functional spaces

  • Car parking facilities

Your defendable project will be in any area that can be addressed within the LSC facilities, (e.g. IT, security, building, interior design, social mobility, Alcohol anonymous (AA), Ramblers club, Photographic society project, Historic Lancashire, Silver surfers, and Cafeteria) Your area of focus should be clearly stated at the start of the assignment

The submission must include a project schedule of at least 40 activities and clearly identify the logic of activity sequencing and relationships between the activities. All dependencies, constraints and resources are to be included. This report will contribute to 60% of the final assessment of this module.

The assignment is as follows:

Section 1: A detailed project schedule applying procedural logic, and clearly showing dependencies, constraints and resource implications. Provide a list of all assumptions you have made in constructing the schedule.  [50 Marks]

Section 2: Using the schedule developed in section 1. set the Baseline of the project, and increase all activity duration by 10% and cost by 15%. Produce an Earned Value tabulated report that presents values for the following:

  • Budget at completion (BAC)

  • Actual costs (ACWP)

  • Planned Value (BCWS

  • Earned Value (BCWP)

  • Schedule variance

  • Cost variance  [25 Marks]

Section 3: Prepare a report that critically evaluates your solutions in relation to the tools and techniques you have used in constructing the project schedule. Also provide list of a references you have used in your submission. Harvard system of references is the prefer option within the Grenfell-Baines school of Architecture, Construction and Environment.  [25 marks]
