Question 1: Create a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) identifying the Tasks Id, Tasks Description, Tasks Duration (Days), and Predecessor Tasks.
Eden Bay is a medium-sized municipality. The town has grown rapidly, and so has the demand for town services. Eden Bay currently owns 90 vehicles, which the town’s equipment department maintains. The fleet includes police cars, sanitation trucks, fire trucks, and other vehicles assigned to town employees. The maintenance budget has risen sharply in recent years, and people are asking whether the town should continue to perform its own maintenance or outsource it to private firms.
In the first part of the case, you planned a preliminary investigation for a new information system that would cut costs and improve maintenance efficiency. Based on your investigation, Dawn wants to move forward, and she asked you to help her present a budget request at the next town council meeting. She suggested the following to-do list: (25 points)
Question 2: Create a PERT/CPM chart, using the WBS above, to determine which task IDs are on the critical path? Note, that you do NOT need to submit your diagram. Only the Task IDs and the Duration of the Critical Path.
Question 4: Use critical path analysis to adjust schedule and resource allocations in response to schedule and budget deviations.
Revise the previous chart using critical path analysis to adjust schedule and resource allocations in response to the following schedule and budget deviations due to a budgetary issue:
What are the impacts on the critical path, if any?
Question 3: Identify a task where you could lengthen the duration without it affecting the critical path. Please note the task ID # and the new Duration.
