The following information is used to answer questions 1 and 2.
The new computer-controlled conveyor belt is an exciting project that moves and positions items on a conveyor belt with a high degree of accuracy (< 1 millimeter of error). The proposed project will produce a new system for future installations, and for replacement of those in the field, at a low cost. The computer-controlled conveyor belt has the potential to be a critical unit in 30 percent of the systems installed in factories. The new system is also easier to update with future technologies. The following tables have been developed for you to use in completing the exercises.
Assumptions and Notes
A seven-day workweek is used for the whole year. No holidays.
An 8-hour workday or 56-hour workweek is used. Overtime is not allowed.
The project should start on January 1 of the next year.
No splitting of activities is allowed.
No partial assignments are allowed (i.e. 50%). All resources must be assigned 100%.
Resource teams have identical capabilities and may be substituted for each other. Hence, when working with resources having multiple teams, please create a single project resource listing (e.g. "Design") and assign the resource a percentage value corresponding to the number of resource teams (e.g. 200% for two teams). Similarly, when working with resources having a single team, create a single project resource listing and assign it a value of 100% to indicate a single team.
Activity durations are fixed meaning adding resources to an activity does not decrease the duration of the activity.
