Part 3

Remember the old saying, “A project plan is not a schedule until resources are committed.”  This exercise illustrates this subtle, but very important difference.

Part A

Using your files from Part 2 input resources and their costs if you have not already done so.  All information is found in Tables A2.11 and A2.12

 

Answer the following questions:

1.  Which if any of the resources are over-allocated?

2.  Assume that the project is time constrained and try to solve any over-allocation problems by leveling within slack.  What happens?

3.  What is the impact of leveling within slack on the sensitivity of the network?

 

Include a Gantt chart with the schedule table after leveling within slack.

 

4.  Assume the project is resource constrained and resolve any over-allocation problems by leveling outside of slack.  What happens?  What are the managerial implications?

5.  What options are available at this point in time?

 

Include a Gantt chart with the schedule table after leveling outside of slack.

 

Note:  No splitting of activities is allowed

Note:  No partial assignments (i.e. 50 percent).  All resources must be assigned 100 percent.
