1 Fall 2001BA Project Management1 BA 301 – Spring 2003

2 Fall 2001BA Project Management2 Project Characteristics Usually unique, done only one time Long time duration to complete Very costly and require large amounts of resources Meeting expected completions times is important Resources can often be shifted between different project activities Management teams are usually disbanded upon completion of the project

3 Fall 2001BA Project Management3

4 Fall 2001BA Project Management4 An Example (Close by!) A major highway construction project just south of the CBA. This project to redesign the interchange between I-40 and I-17 was a joint venture between Vastco, Inc. and ADOT. The construction was an excellent example of “Project Management”

5 Fall 2001BA Project Management5

10 Fall 2001BA Project Management10 2 Two Months Activity (Arrow) Begin War Saddam’s government is eliminated Project: “Iraqi Freedom” Event (Node) Engage & Defeat Iraqi Military Forces Engage & Defeat Iraqi Military Forces 1 Event (Node) Network Terms

11 Fall 2001BA Project Management11 1 A B A & B can occur concurrently 2 3 Activity Relationships

12 Fall 2001BA Project Management A B C A must be done before C & D can begin D Activity Relationships

13 Fall 2001BA Project Management13 3 time estimates Optimistic times (a) Most-likely time (m) Pessimistic time (b) Follow beta distribution Expected time: t = (a + 4m + b)/6 Variance of times: v = (b - a) 2 /6   PERT Activity Times

15 Fall 2001BA Project Management15 Provides activity information Earliest (ES) & latest (LS) start Earliest (EF) & latest (LF) finish Slack (S): Allowable delay Identifies critical path Longest path in network Shortest time project can be completed Any delay on critical path activities delays project Critical path activities have 0 slack Critical Path Analysis

18 Fall 2001BA Project Management Pour foundation & frame 3 wk. 4 wk. 2 wk. 6 wk. Do interior work Landscape Roof Buy shrubs etc. Critical path is longest path: 12 weeks. Critical Path in Network

19 Fall 2001BA Project Management19 Finding the Critical Path Activity Time ES EF LS LF Slack A B C D E

20 Fall 2001BA Project Management20 Critical Path continued Activity Time ES EF LS LF Slack A B C D E

21 Fall 2001BA Project Management21 Expected project time (T) Sum of critical path activity times, t Project variance (V) Sum of critical path activity variances, v Used to obtain probability of project completion! Project Times

22 Fall 2001BA Project Management22 © 1995 Corel Corp. PERT Probability Example You’re a project planner for General Dynamics. A submarine project has an expected completion time of 40 weeks, with a standard deviation of 5 weeks. What is the probability of finishing the sub in 50 weeks or less?

23 Fall 2001BA Project Management23 T = 40 s = 5 50X Normal Distribution Z XT = - = - = s m z = 0 s Z = 1 Z 2.0 Standardized Normal Distribution Converting to Standardized Variable
