The data were successfully fed in the Ms project and analysis determined, providing meaningful information. This is a summary of what really transpired as far as this project is concerned in terms of its evaluation.
First of all, task sequencing showed that the task need to be done in the following order, starting with Project Kick-off, which includes booking location for meeting, invitation of stakeholders and developing Charter/Scope among others. This is immediately followed by the status reports/meeting stage where status report is developed and meetings arranged and held. The work permits for the various sections are then obtained. It also shows that framing is done followed by electrical, plumbing then drywall. Move occurs after finish work but before building occurs as shown. Project procurement and project closure finish the process respectively.
The task dependency created, in summary showed several observation one being that all tasks are dependent on task 1, in a finish-start manner. All the links result in a finish-start dependency. Thus a delay in any of the stages will automatically delay all the other stages. The sequence of occurrence of the tasks to a large extent determine the mode of dependency between them as shown by the project.
Tasks are critical because changing their duration in turn changes the duration of the entire project. Thus the activities that result in a combined longest duration define the critical path. Thus in our case, the critical path contains among others two critical tasks. The first task is framing inspection, that is scheduled from Tue 3/15/11 to Mon 3/28/11. This is done by city and county inspector. The other critical task is the finish-Install work schedule for 15 days beginning from Mon 4/11/11 to Fri 4/29/11. This job is done by Woodcraft Carpentry for working 120 hrs. The overall critical path starts from task id 30 all the way to task id 47. This close attention should be paid to these two tasks and the resources assigned to them to ensure completion of the project as scheduled.
The first risk involving the finish work contractors will have an overall effect on the time schedule for the implementation of the project because the task is a critical one. The permits delay will not affect the timeline because the other critical tasks will continue. The work off by framing contractors does not affect framing inspection thus the timeline is not affected.
In other observations, the city and county resources has the highest working time, accumulating a total of 400 working hours on the project. This is followed by human resources, having 272 hours. The least is the 8 hours of the spark electrical, workers,east side framing PM, water works among others. A total of 1880 working hours are needed to complete the entire project. The total plan will cost not less than $ 383000.0
