Based on the task hierarchy in “Topic 2 Project Durations TEMPLATE” (a Microsoft Excel file), demote the appropriate tasks using the green indent and outdent arrows in the TASK Ribbon, SCHEDULE group. Notice how the WBS field is automatically updated as tasks are indented and outdented. Be sure that your Microsoft Project task hierarchy exactly matches the task hierarchy in “Topic 2 Project Durations TEMPLATE” (a Microsoft Excel file).
Based on your computed PERT Expected Durations from above, enter these durations in the “Duration” field in the Microsoft Project file. Note the following:
Be sure that you do not directly enter durations into Microsoft Project summary tasks (i.e., the bold tasks). Note that the Microsoft Project summary task durations and dates are automatically updated as durations are entered into the lowest-level tasks.
Be sure that lowest-level task durations are entered as whole numbers.
Based on the predecessor information in “Topic 2, Project Durations TEMPLATE” Microsoft Excel file, update the “Predecessor” column in “Topic 2 Initial Project Schedule TEMPLATE” (a Microsoft Project file). Note the following:
The “Successor” column updates automatically, as predecessors are entered. Thus there is no need to enter any information in the Successor column.
Be sure that the summary tasks (i.e., the bold tasks) do not contain predecessors or successors. Predecessors and successors are only entered at the lowest-level task level.
Ensure that lowest-level tasks have at least one predecessor (except the first task) and at least one successor (except the last task).
Display the critical path. Go to the FORMAT ribbon and check the “Critical Tasks” box in the BAR STYLES group. Note that the critical path taskbars will turn red. Also, take note that the Total Slack column contains 0 days for the critical path tasks.
Submit the following completed files by the end of Week 2:
“Topic 2 Project Durations TEMPLATE” (a Microsoft Excel file). Ensure that your last name is in the file name.
“Topic 2, Initial Project Schedule TEMPLATE” (a Microsoft Project file). Ensure that your last name is in the file name.
