timer Asked: Feb 14th, 2016

Question description

Create a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) table from the scenario below. In an essay (minimum 600 words), describe work experiences, skill sets, education, and certification requirements for those who will be needed to fill the tasks you have planned.

Scenario: Sequential Label and Supply is having a problem with employees surfing the Web to access material the company has deemed inappropriate for a professional environment. The technology exists to insert a filtering device in the company Internet connection that blocks certain Web locations and certain Web content. The vendor has provided the company with some initial information about the filter. The filter is a hardware appliance that costs $18,000 and requires a total of 150 effort-hours to install and configure. Technical support on the filter costs 18% of the purchase price and includes a training allowance for the year. A software component that runs on the administrator's desktop computer is needed for administering the filter, and it costs $550. A monthly subscription provides the list of sites to be blocked and costs $250 per month. The administrator must spend an estimated four hours per week for ongoing administrative functions.

Items you should consider:

Your plan requires two parts, one for deployment and another for ongoing operation after implementation. The vendor offers a contracting service for installation at $140 per hour. Your change control process requires a 17-day lead time for change requests. The manufacturer has a 14-day order time and a 7-day delivery time for this device.
