Gantt Chart (MS Project)

 

Purpose

This unit’s Assignment will introduce you to various software programs, such as Microsoft Project and Microsoft Excel. These applications will provide the necessary tools to assign tasks, responsibilities, and roles that will assist the consultant to keep track and informed about the status of the project and take remediation action when necessary.

Content

Scenario No. 1

Morris Wildlife Services deals with the humane removal of wildlife from places it does not belong (such as removing bats from attics and trapping coyotes for release in more suitable habitat). The company does not have a website and has hired you to build one. The company would like to include some educational materials, company history, a list of prices, and other information on its website, so you will have to gather some information from existing brochures as well as do new research.

Scenario No. 2

Barstow Training is a company that specializes in assisting the unemployed in developing basic computer skills, writing resumes, and learning how to search for jobs. The company is opening up a center in your community and has hired you to develop the network in their new building, which will have two classrooms with 15 computers each, and one computer in each of seven administrative offices. Your job will include developing the topology, network security, connection to the Internet, etc.

Scenario No. 3

Orion Meester is a small service company that is hired by cable television, internet, and phone companies to solicit customers door-to-door and at various locations. This means that employees mostly work outside the office. As the company expands, the president realizes the need for a mobile application that would allow the employees to log their work (both attempts to sell and completed work orders) and to be able to access information for potential customers. You have been hired to create the application.

Scenario No. 4

Fenster Stained Glass, a small family company specializing in the creation of unique stained-glass windows, is expanding. They have realized that their old ways of using Excel to log business is no longer adequate and want a database to be developed so that inventory, sales, payroll, and employee data could be stored, and reports run. You have been hired to develop this database; this will include determining what kind of data would be appropriate to include. An interface designer will assist you with the development of user screens.
