The main purpose of project Planning is to?

obtain funding for the project

Project teams develop a_______to corrdinate all other project plans

project mangement plan

WBS

Work package

What is the first step in planning a project schedule

developing an activity list

Finish-to-start

Crititcal path

What cost estimateing techinque uses project characteristitcs in a mathematical model to estimate project costs?

Parametric modeling

A________is a time-phased budget that project managers use to measure and monitor cost performance.

Cost performance Baseline

requirement

growing grass

1

analogy

milestone list

You estimate the cost to get a masters degree by considering factors like the quality of the institution, how long it will take, if you will work while studying, etc. What cost estimation technique are you using?

parametric modeling

What is the formula for determining a PERT weighted average?

(optimistic time + 4 x most like time + pessimistic time)/6

True

True

Fales

False

False

Gantt charts

Backward Pass

Crititcal path

Network Diagram.

____A technique that uses project characterisitics(parameters) in a mathematical model to estimate project costs.

Parametiric modeling

_____A network diagramming technique in which boxes represent activities.

Precedence diagramming

____A deliverable-oriented grouping of the work involved in a project that defines the total scope of the project.

Work breakdown structure

Float or Slack

____the estimates that use the actural cost of a previous, similar project as the basis for estimating the cost of the current project.

analogous estimates, or top-down estimates

buffer

crashing

Critical path

___An estimate that includes an optimistic, most likely, and pessimistic estimate

Three-point estimate

What are the two most commmon types of schedules used in consturction?

Gantt chart and the network diagram

Name two techniques used to create a network diagram

Activity -on-arrow method and the activity-on-node method.

What is another name for the activity-on node(AON) network diagram?

precedence diagram.

What are the three stages of network diagram devleopment?

Planning stage, the sequencing stage, and the scheduling stage

three diffrent types of activites that are included in the typical schedule, and give an example of each.

Production activites(eg. installing siding), Procurement activites(eg. ordering windows)

What is the critical path and why is it important from a project mangement standpoint?

The critical path is the continuous chain of activites with the longet(combined) overall duration in the network diagram. Critical path determined the project duration and nay dely in any activity along the critial path results in a delay in overall project.

Three calcualtion that must be performed to determin the project duration and the critical path are the _____,_____ and the total___calcualtions

Forward pass, backward pass, float

After you complete a forward and backward pass, how do you know which activites are on the criitcal path?

The activites that have no total float will be the activites on the critical path.
