u5 Case study

0 comments

Instructions

For this assignment, read the case study, “Nutristar” starting on page 342 of your textbook. Once you have read and reviewed the case scenario, respond to the following questions with thorough explanations and well-supported rationale.

  1. Create a program evaluation and review technique (PERT), Gantt, or critical path method (CPM) network diagram for this project. Which path do you expect to be the critical path, and what is its expected completion time?
  2. What are the process resource allocations and your recommended monitoring processes?
  3. How might the project manager at Nutristar incorporate simulation analysis into his or her risk analysis process?

Your response should be a minimum of two pages in length and follow APA style. References should include your textbook and a minimum of one additional credible source. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations in APA style.

The following case presents a real project (in aggregate form) that allows the student to compare the critical path solution approach for both completion time and cost as well as a simulated solution for time variability and then also for both time and cost variability. The student should better understand the risk of projects running late and overbudget after this exercise.
