Assignment 2: WBS, Schedule, and Budget (3-4 pages)
Final Project: Part III and IV: WBS, Schedule, and Budget
The deliverable for this week is a WBS and Schedule and Budget.
WBS chart: Include an explanation of the hierarchical relationship among each level on the chart. Level one
should depict the end result (a product or a service) of the project.
Level two should consist of the major tasks outlined in the statement of
work (SOW). Level three should list the subtasks contained in each SOW
task. You can use the series of charts available in Microsoft Project.
Submit your answers in a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document with the
supported Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, Microsoft Project files, and
other documentation as needed.
Schedule: Sequence the tasks in the order of completion. Arrange the work breakdown structure
elements in the form of a task-flow network to determine dependencies.
Identify the critical path along which necessary resources should be
allocated to achieve the project objectives within the defined time
frame. Indicate the earliest occurrence and highlight the critical
path. Use a Gantt chart to illustrate the start and completion dates of
each task. Consider whether the tasks can be completed in parallel or
must be performed in sequence.
Cost plan: Develop a cost plan for your project that identifies the allocation and cost of resources to your project.
