For CP-2, we will leave CP-1 behind and start fresh. CP-2 is a financial analysis of a new Indoor theme park project. You will utilize the provided project information/data to create a new project schedule which will represent your project at a specific point during implementation. You will load the information/data into Microsoft Project where the data will serve as the basis for project monitoring and control and Earned Value Analysis. The output of the analysis, combined with a control plan, will be used to support the continuation of your project.
The CP-2 Project Performance Report will be structured with the following sections:
Cover Page including assignment, project title, course, and student contact information. Executive Summary which “summarizes” the content from the entire document with quantifiable highlights such as overall project cost and schedule performance, estimate to completion, and makes the pitch to project stakeholders to continue the project. Schedule 1 an MSP Gantt chart schedule (required) which incorporates the provided project data, established baseline, and proper review date representing the anticipated 50% completion date. Performance Analysis utilizes Earned Value data to analyze the project cost and schedule performance. Estimate at Completion includes a forward-looking estimate of the project completion date and the final project costs. Control Plan which provides a corrective action plan to bring the project back in line with your project baseline. Revised Estimate at Completion which includes the corrective actions from the control plan along with the resulting cost impact and schedule impact. Schedule 2 including revised MSP Gantt chart schedule (required) which reflects the impact of your corrective actions.NOTE: Each section should include the detail as described above, along with a proper discussion about the included data as well as the project manager’s analysis/interpretation of the information.
