Question 1: Selected exercises
Exercise 11 Project Tracking
nBegin organizing your project files by making decisions on the relevance of materials and make some estimates for tracking your project. Refine your project plan. To estimate, tracking and refine the project plan, there are a lot of files can be used, include illustrations and reports. Here, after WBS (Work Breakdown Structure), we use Calendars, Network Chart, Critical Path, Gantt Chart, PERT, especially Tracking Gantt Chart after WBS (Work Breakdown Structure), and use rate of progress management report. They can further carry out each work package to concrete date, and establish a baseline to allow further tracking, then the project can be refined at this phase. Here noticeable is, register actual progress in schedule regularly, is the chief guarantee for project progress tracking. The project managers should not only insist their staff register actual progress, but also have accountability to ensure whether the registers are truth. Otherwise, the project would have high possibility that get into trouble. For this project, the WBS (both in Tabular Form and Chart), Network Chart, and Critical Path have issued in Assignment I; the Calendar and Tracking Gantt Chart will been showed here, and the Gantt Chart and PERT will been showed in Exercise 13.

Exercise 12 Risk Assessment
Prepare a Risk Assessment for your project, using the abridged format in the example below. See p277 and the Dayton Tire Co use of McFarlan¡¯s risk questionnaire. Determine the abridged McFarlan Risk Questionnaire risk score (weight) or the project due to the following technology factors. (Sum of risk score ¡Á Weight). FactorRisk ScoreWeight
