Directions
For CP2 you will set your CP1 project and document deliverable aside and start fresh. Your task is to use this document and the data provided to create a project file using Microsoft Project. The data below will establish a project budget and schedule baseline with Budget = $4,449,920.00 and a highly desired completion date of 12/19/08.
We are trying to create a scenario for a time that is 'out in the future' here. We are fast forwarding the project and loading some fictional information to create a scenario for you to analyze using Earned Value and then provide course corrections to the project.

The project at this future date shows that our project is not performing very well. However, you are given the opportunity to make some changes to the project to still complete it on the desired date of 12/19/08.
These directions help you set the Gantt to represent the anticipated 50% completion 'date' of 10/1/08. This is the date where the project 'should be' 50% complete. You do NOT set the project to 50% complete, you set it to 40%. These are two different things and these 2 parameters set up the scenario for you to generate EV data and tell me about how the project is doing.

% Complete (The Reality)
The 40% should be set by you by setting the top level task (project name) to 40%. This is how 'done' we are saying we actually are with the project at this point in time.

% Scheduled (The Plan)
The date (i.e. point in time) provided for the review fast forwards the project to the 'anticipated' 50% project scheduled date. This is the date on the calendar when we 'wanted' to be 50% complete.

First, change the project start date to Mon 4/14/08.
Use the following data to setup your baseline project file. Adjust indenting to match WBS coding provided. In MSP right mouse click the header row and insert a WBS Column as shown. Do not add durations or…...

...PROJ592 ms project Copying Gantt Charts How do I display the Gantt chart in a word document? There are a couple of ways. The way I prefer is to use the "copy picture" option in MS Project 2010. This button is on the "Task" menu in the upper right corner. In the first file above I have identified it. [pic] When you click the copy picture button it will open a menu that lets you select the file format (.gif), the number of rows to use (you highlight them on the screen before opening the menu), and the date range. You will be saving graphics files so you can save one and then look to see if you captured the picture you wanted. Adjust the settings if you need to change. [pic] The GIF file can be pasted in to a word document. If you need to crop it import in into any picture editing file. The second way is to use the "print screen" available on any computer. This way gives you only what you see on the screen. You may have to capture more than one screen to get the full Gantt chart. You will also need to edit these graphics file to get rid of all the extra stuff on the screen around the Gantt chart.

...Problems 5-1 through 5-2 (Graded) 5-1 Earned Value Calculation You are 4 months into a 6 month project. The project is linear, which means that the progress and spending occurs at a constant rate. Our crack project team of highly skilled associates has worked diligently and put in extra hours to keep the project going. Our accounting department has provided the following data at the end of month 4: Actual cost to date = $88,800 Planned expenditures to date = $101,000 The CFO is excited and has sent you an email congratulating you for being 12.07% under budget. However, is it really time to hold a team celebration? That would be fun but your project manager mentality kicks in. Those numbers look good but how are we ‘really’ doing? To understand the true project performance, we need to apply earned value techniques. The missing piece we need is Earned Value (i.e. what we have actually accomplished so far). You meet with your team and find that only 6 of the 7 tasks scheduled to be complete by the end of month 4 have actually been completed. Task 7 isn’t even started! This information gives you the final data you need to apply ‘Earned Value’ and develop an objective analysis. 1. What are the PV, EV, and AC for the project at the end of month 4? 2.

...Project Proposal: Local Grind To Investors Investing PM592 – Summer 2011 Executive Summary When you think of coffee in the Northwest, most people know there is Starbucks and small coffee shops. Coffee shops have become a familiar feature of American communities, not only for the purchase of a morning cup of coffee and snacks, but for mid-day and evening as well. With the introduction of fancy espresso-based coffee and drinks, people are spending between $3 and $6 for their cappuccino, mocha latte, vanilla ice blended drink, or other flavored drink that may be coffee based. Privately owned coffee houses have been on the increase for over 20 years because they are relatively recession proof. Leading companies, such as Starbucks and Peet’s, are located in almost every major city in the US. Small unique coffee shops like the Local Grind are able to compete with these larger chains; they are able to develop competitive advantages by catering to the specific demographics of their location and by personalizing their services to cater local needs. Our goal is to provide quality coffee related services and products by capitalizing on an untapped demographic that has many potential un-serviced customer. To accomplish our goals, we are requesting $100,000 from your company, as an initial investment to set up operations. We plan to invest an additional 20% from our own resources, up front, for the start up operational costs. Local Grind is scheduled to open for......
