I need this to be saved in .mpp so that it can be opened. There are 2 parts that need to be done.

First part:

Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and Project Schedule (100 points)

Deliverables for Week 4:

  • WBS in PowerPoint Slide or inserted into MS Word (50 points)
  • MS Project file at Gantt View (50 points)

Work Breakdown Structure (WBS): A hierarchical decomposition of the total scope of work to be carried out by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables.

For this week, you will create a work breakdown structure (WBS) for the project.

Remember that the WBS starts with major deliverables (included in the scope statement) at the highest level. The lower levels have the work package required to complete those deliverables. Review the textbook and the PMBOK® Guide for some suggestions on how to create a WBS.

From your work breakdown structure, develop a project task list with dependencies and add durations, using MS Project.

  • Develop the work breakdown structure.
    • Your WBS should have a minimum of 50–100 line items in MS Project and be three levels deep.
    • Make sure to use verb-object task names (i.e., “Develop software”).

WBS Sample

  • MS Project Schedule
    • Enter tasks in MS Project.
    • Create the predecessor relationships.
    • Do not link summary tasks or assign resources.

Set Up Schedule in MS Project

  1. Set the basic project information.
    • Open MS Project.
    • Click on file (top left), select save as and enter the file name as (your name) cp1. For example, SmithJanecp1.mpp.
    • Click on the project area and select project information. In the project information dialogue box, set the start date of your project.
    • Leave other dates as is. Click on OK.
    • Click on format and click the check box beside project summary task. Now your first summary task is your project name.
    • Set basic Gantt chart format (use also for tracking Gantt chart view).
    • Right click on the mouse in the gray area of the Gantt chart on the right side of the screen where the dates in month and days are for the menu, and select Timescale.
    • In the Timescale dialogue box,
      1. select the middle tier tab and set units to quarters (months) (weeks);
      2. aelect the bottom tier tab and set units to months (weeks) (days); and
      3. Click on OK.
  2. Set up the default task units to weeks.
    • Click file, and then click options.
    • In the project options dialog box, click schedule.
    • Under scheduling options in this project, set the following.
      1. New tasks created select auto scheduled
      2. Duration is entered in select weeks (days)
      3. Default task type select fixed duration
      4. Click OK to close the dialog box.

Once you have set the defaults, we are ready to move on. If you have not done so already, you need to create the project’s work packages and activities from the project’s WBS. Once this is done, insert your project name, deliverables, work packages, and activities in the column task name in MS Project.

  • Enter the task durations in the duration column.
  • Enter the predecessor(s) for each task in the predecessors column. You can also highlight the tasks and click the link icon in the ribbon.
  • If there is no duration or predecessor listed, leave the column blank. Note: If you do not see the predecessors column, move the vertical line between the entry form and the Gantt chart to the right to reveal the column. Click on the line and drag to move it. Columns can be expanded or contracted individually to accommodate information the same way column width is adjusted in MS Excel.

Note: Analyze Your Schedule and Network Diagram

To see the network diagram, click on view, then select network diagram. Activities on the critical path are outlined in red, whereas noncritical path activities are outlined in blue.

Second part:

Risk Management Plan (50 Points)

Remember, a risk is an uncertain event or condition that can have a positive or negative impact on the project.

  • Identify and analyze your project risks.
  • Develop a risk management plan to monitor and track your project.
  • Instructions:
  • 1. You will evaluate each task in your project schedule to identify any risk factors associated with the execution of the deliverable.
  • 2. You will then add your list of risk to the risk register template in Files.
  • 3. The number of risks will depend on the project deliverables in your schedule; however, 20–25 risks would be considered the minimum.
  • 4. Review the instructions on the first sheet of the template, and complete your risk register in its entirety.

I have attached the template that is needed and also the work I have completed to help you. Please let me know if you don’t understand something.
