project life cycle analysis

Part A Develop a project life cycle analysis of the proposed project. Include and discuss at least two (2)  tasks for each of the four (4) stages.
Part B Develop a work breakdown structure (WBS) and a responsibility matrix like those found in your text (pp.
108-109; p. 111, respectively). You may use MS Word or Excel to develop both of these charts. (A chart and
matrix are required.)
The following work activities should be included in your charts. Look them over and determine the best sequence
in which they should be accomplished. Some activities
(WBS Level 1) may be performed simultaneously whereas others may not. Using your personal knowledge and
research, include at least two (2) sub-activities/sublevels (WBS Level 2) for each activity. Use each of the two
(2) names listed under Support Responsibility as a “Primary” for one of your sub-activities/sub-levels and as
“Support” for the other sub-activity/sub-level. The WBS and matrix for Activity “Roof” may look something like
these examples.

Part C Prepare a WBS and Gantt Chart in MS Project using the information developed in Part B and the information
given. Then explain how much time the overall project is going to take to complete as is. (include two charts.)
1. It takes 30 days (standard 8-hour workdays, Monday through Friday) to complete each activity.
2. Construct the WBS and Gantt Chart (in Project) illustrating the construction of each building in sequence.
For example, building “A” must be built (completed) before construction on building “B” is started, etc. DO NOT
include the Level 2 tasks in your Gantt Chart created in Part B.
Part D Incorporate the following information into your WBS from Part C. (include Resource Sheet.)
The project manager is paid $30/hour and each primary (P) worker is paid $25/hour while support (S) workers are
paid $15/hour.
1. Determine the project’s total labor costs. Explain your results. Submit a copy ofyour Resource Sheet.
2. When developing the project cost plan, what things should be considered to estimate the total project costs?
It may be helpful to contact actual contractors, construction companies, vendors, etc., for the tasks involved
in this type of project.
Part E In Part C, your WBS and Gantt Charts were based on each of the buildings being constructed one after the
other. We know that building in this manner is a large waste of resources, namely people and time. Revise your
original WBS and Gantt charts to reflect better use of your resources. In addition, submit a copy of your new
Resource Sheet. Explain the changes you made, why you made them, and how these changes affect your overall
project (i.e., costs, project duration, etc.). (include new charts )
Part F Identify three (3) conflicts that may arise during this project. Then provide a solution to each conflict
using Steps 1-7 of Gido and Clement’s Nine-Step Approach to Problem Solving on page 341 of your textbook.
Part G Write a description explaining to Chase Opportunity what a successful project looks like. In other words,
how will Chase know when you have achieved the common goal you set out to achieve? Describe three metrics, or
measures, that you will use throughout the project life cycle. Explain how each metric relates to the project.
