ISDS 351 Principles of Information Systems : MS Project Assignment
You’ve decided to remodel the kitchen in your home. You have some money in the bank, but you’re not sure how expensive this project will be. To figure out how much the remodel will cost, you need a couple of experts. First, you need someone to design the new kitchen, and also you need someone who will do the actual remodel work. You don’t know anyone who can do either of those jobs, so you’ll have to do some work to find the right people.
Once you have those two experts, you’ll need them to give you a design and a price for the work. You will want to review and decide if you want to approve the work or cancel the whole project. The cost may include getting building permits, the cost of removing all the old things from the kitchen, fees to take the old kitchen items to the dump, the cost of buying and installing new items, new paint, and throwing a party for all your friends when you are done.
The items you want to replace are all of the cabinets, the counter tops, and the floor tile. You also want to replace the refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove. You’re not sure what models you like or what they cost.
Add any other tasks to the plan that seem to be appropriate. For this assignment don’t worry about the specific cost, but be sure to account for the work tasks associated with those costs (e.g. getting building permits).
Principles of Information Systems Project Part 1
Create a Microsoft Project work breakdown structure (WBS) for the kitchen remodel project listed above. You will need to list the appropriate detail tasks, grouped into summary tasks. You will need at least 20 tasks (probably a lot more) for this WBS.
Submit your completed project plan in the Titanium assignment. Your submission must be a .mpp file from Microsoft Project 2013, 2016, or 2019.
When you submit your file, be sure to include your name in the name of the file. For example: Perew_Mark_Kitchen_WBS Part 1.mpp. There will be 2 points deducted if your name is left off.
After receiving feedback on Part 1, update you Microsoft Project file. The tasks will need correct predecessors listed so that the work happens in the right sequence. The tasks all need start and finish dates. Each detail task must have a duration. Make up an amount of time that makes sense to you.
When you submit your file, be sure to include your name in the name of the file. For example: Perew_Mark_Kitchen_WBS Part 2.mpp. There will be 2 points deducted if your name is left off.
The purpose of this assignment is for you to learn how to create a simple WBS with tasks, summary tasks, predecessors, start dates, and durations. Make sure you have all of those included in your submission, as required for each part.
Please have fun with this. Be creative. If you surprise me with great details, there may be an extra point or two added to your grade.
