Case Study: Montview Stadium Assignment Instructions

Overview

Planning and scheduling are a part of any project manager’s routine. And to do this well, we need to understand how the triple constraint (time, cost, scope) affect our priorities when planning a project’s execution. In the case that follows, you will use your project planning skills (and software) to plan a sport stadium’s construction. You will also use your expert judgment to address the questions that follow, based on your final project schedule. This assignment will introduce you to project management software (or further your knowledge of the software), further develop your planning skills, and allow you to determine next steps for a large-scale project constrained by time and cost.

Instructions

Read the Updated Case 6.2: Montview Stadium in this folder. Using Microsoft Project, create a task list and Gantt chart that details the project schedule (see the Table 1 provided for task details). Once the chart is created, answer the questions presented in the case document. Considering the information provided, construct a Risk Response Matrix (see text p. 227) that details at least 3 risk events that are likely for this case, your responses to the risks, contingency plans, triggers, and the responsible party for each risk event. Then, in the format described below, submit two documents.

  • The first document is a paper completed in Microsoft Word that follows current APA format.
  • The second document is the Microsoft Project file, which is also required.
  • The paper is to include at least 3 resources (the text and at least 2 peer-reviewed sources) and total of 5–6 pages while including the following:
  1. Title page.
  2. Project Summary (2–3 pages), including an introduction to the project and answers to questions 1–3 from the case. For this assignment, include research-based rationale for your answers; be sure to include a discussion of possible risks as well as the date the project is scheduled to be completed. Include at least 3 peer-reviewed, scholarly sources in your discussion.
  3. Appendix: One-page Risk Response matrix.
  4. Reference page.
  • The paper is to be in APA format.

Note: You must use the provided case document for this case. Older versions of the case will not be accepted. In addition, the original Project file must be attached in order for the project to earn credit. PDF files or files created in other, non-approved software are not acceptable.

Updated Case 6.2: Montview Stadium Case

The G&E Company is preparing a bid to build the new 47,000-seat Shoreline baseball stadium. The construction must start on July 1, 2020, and be completed in time for the start of the 2024 season. A penalty clause of $100,000 per day of delay beyond April 3 is written into the contract.

 

Percival Young, the president of the company, expressed optimism at obtaining the contract and revealed that the company could net as much as $3 million on the project. He also said if they were successful, the prospects of future projects are bright since there is a projected renaissance in building classic ball parks with modern luxury boxes.

 

Assignment

Given the information provided in Table 1, construct a network schedule for the stadium project and answer the following questions:

 

1.   Will the project be able to be completed by the April 3rd deadline? How long will it take? How many working days are projected?

 

2.   What is the critical path for the project? List the activities on the critical path.

 

3.   Based on the schedule would you recommend that G&E pursue this contract? Why or why not?
