        • Establish procedures to support later project activities
      • Planning
        • Define clear, discrete activities and the work needed to complete each activity
      • Execution
        • Plans created in prior phases are put into action
      • Closing down
    • 5. Initiating the Project
      • Establish project initiation team
      • Establish relationship with customer
      • Establish project initiation plan
      • Establish management procedures
      • Establish project management environment and workbook
    • 6. Planning the Project
      • Describe project scope, alternatives and feasibility
        • Scope and Feasibility
          • Understand the project
          • What problem is addressed
          • What results are to be achieved
          • Measures of success
          • Completion criteria
    • 7. Planning the Project
      • Divide the project into manageable tasks
          • Work breakdown structure
          • Gantt chart
      • Estimate resources and create a resource plan.
      • Develop a preliminary schedule
          • Utilize Gantt and PERT charts
    • 8. Gantt Chart
    • 9. PERT Chart
    • 10. Comparison of Gantt and PERT Charts
      • Gantt
        • Visually shows duration of tasks
        • Visually shows time overlap between tasks
        • Visually shows slack time
      • PERT
        • Visually shows dependencies between tasks
        • Visually shows which tasks can be done in parallel
        • Shows slack time by data in rectangles
    • 11. Gantt and PERT Charts
      • Steps
        • Identify each activity
        • Determine time estimates and expected completion times for each activity.
        • Determine sequence of activities
        • Determine critical path
    • 12. Estimated Time Calculations
    • 13. Sequence of Activities
    • 14. Critical Path Activities
      • Early Finish Te
        • Sum ET from left to right
        • Use max if the activity has more than 1 predecessor
      • Late Finish Tl
        • Subtract ET from right to left
        • Use min if the activity has more than 1 successor
      • Slack time = Tl-Te
      • On Critical Path if Slack Time = 0
    • 15. Critical Paths
    • 16. Time Estimation
      • Planning – 15%
      • Analysis – 20%
      • Design – 35%
      • Implementation – 30%
    • 17. Trade-offs
