COURSE: PROJECT MANAGEMENT
You have been hired by Company XYZ as the project manager for a retail-space renovation project. The project requires replacing all of the light fixtures in the space, painting the walls and ceiling, and carpeting the floors throughout. Your company has given you a budget of USD $25,000 and the expectation that the project be completed four weeks from its start.
The company requires a status update at the end of each week, until the project is completed. In two to four pages, address the following in your write-up.
Explain why you would use Earned Value calculations to provide a meaningful status report in terms of the cost and schedule components of this project.
What information would Schedule Variance (SV), Schedule Performance Index (SPI), Cost Variance (CV), and Cost Performance Index (CPI) provide you in determining the status of your project?
How would you use BAC, EV, AC, and PV in determining the four measures above?
Finish your write-up with a conclusion on the use and benefit of using earned value analysis in reporting project status.
Your well-written paper should be two to four pages in length, not including cover and references pages and appendix. Appendices should be included at the end of the paper after the references page(s).
Format your paper according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA (Links to an external site.).
Cite a minimum of three sources (two of which should be current, academic peer-reviewed scholarly sources) to support your responses, demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course, and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.
NOTE: Current research in this class means the most recent five-year period. Although research older than five years may be used, it will not count toward the assignment requirement of citations. Additionally, in the lecture material for Module 1, you were reminded of what constitutes academic peer-reviewed scholarly sources and how to find them in the CSU-Global Library.
Refer to the Critical Thinking assignment grading rubric available in the Module 5 folder for more information on assignment expectations and grading.
