This assignment is worth 100 points toward your final grade. For this assignment, you must prepare a GANTT chart project plan for your Personal Project. This assignment is due at the end of Week Six.
Using the Work Breakdown Structure you created for your Personal Project, create a project plan for your personal project
Your project plan should be in the form of a GANTT chart
Your final deliverable can be an IMAGE of the project plan.
If your GANTT chart prints as multiple pages, then create one image file per page.
Or, you can simply submit the .mpp file if you’re using MS Project
Submit your document(s) to the instructor via Canvas
Once you have created your WBS in MS Project, creating a GANTT chart is relatively easy.
Basically, beginning with each work package in the WBS, you must add the following in MS Project.
1. Each task (work package) should be linked to its PREDECESSOR and SUCCESSOR tasks. That is, you know you cannot start on the task until predecessor tasks are completed. Each predecessor/successor must be identified in MS Project.
2. Each task should be assigned a duration. That is, how long will it take to complete this task. This can be entered in minutes, hours or days. But you must use the same timeframe for all tasks in your plan.
3. Each task should be assigned a start date.
4. Each task can optionally be assigned a resource in MS Project. That is, WHO will be doing the work.
Once these four items have been entered into MS Project, it will automatically draw your GANTT chart for you.
