Project management

MANU2123

The company xxx (FROM THE ASSIGNMENT 1) decided to go on with Audio helping system.  The project team creates the  work breakdown structure by identifying the major functional deliverables and subdividing those deliverables into smaller systems. The team also performed Project Time management analysis (:Defined  Activities,  Sequenced Activities,  Estimated Activity Resources, and  Estimated Activity Duration

The result of their work is presented in the Table 1.

Develop Project Schedule network:

1. Draw Network Diagram
2. Determine Critical path
3. Forward Pass Calculation (Early Start, Early Finish)
4. Backward Pass Calculation (Late Start, Late Finish)
5. Slack (Float) Calculation.

The calculations have to be commented using at least 3-5 sentences for explanation, and scenarios.

1. Using previously done Project Time management analysis, Estimate planed start and finishing date for each activity along the critical path.
2. Project management team decided that for the Performance report it is the best to choose the day when the Embedded system programing is completed. After analysis the project management team was found that only 75% of the work on the Embedded system is done and \$16500 are spend.
3. Draw Actual Performance table
4. Calculate Cost Variance (CV) , Shedule variance (SV), Cost Performance Index (CPI) and Shedule performance Index (SPI)
• Analyse situation and possible scenarios.
1. Perform Forecast analysis by calculating: Budget at completion (BAS); Estimate at Completion (EAS); Estimate to complete (ETC) and Variance at Completion(VAC)
2. Calculate “To Complete Performance Index” and give a comment

Comment what has to be done for Quality control. And what will be the best Metrics.
