While you may not have a team, you will have several inputs handy to help you along the way. These include the project charter, the project WBS you created, and the numerous examples of diagrams shared.

To complete this assignment, please use the provided template to provide the following information:

1. WBS ID: Number that links the activity to your WBS

2. Activity details: Please use complete sentences so they are clear

3. Effort: Number of hours needed to complete the task

4. Duration: Number of days to complete the task

Please note that numbers 3 & 4 above are not duplicates. Effort and durations are separate calculations and are important for understanding the schedule baseline. The effort depicts the number of hours and duration reflects the overall time needed for the task. For example, you may have task A that takes Resource B only 3 hours to complete, but Resource B, may need three full weeks to apply those 3 hours. Thus, the fill-in would look like this:

· WBS ID: 1.1

· Activity details: Complete task A

· Effort: 3 hours

· Duration: 3 weeks

Effort helps us determine the costs associated with the project while duration helps us determine the overall schedule.

When working on your assignment, you may find that your WBS begins to evolve into more detail and this is natural.

Once you have completed the template, fully calculate your durations so that you can provide a final schedule baseline.





Assignment 4 covers testing your knowledge of the activity on the node diagram by having you create one that represents the WBS created for your course project.

It is recommended to first began with a precedent table to highlight the activities and their predecessors. Next determine which application would be best for creating your AON diagram. Remember it can also be done by hand if easier.

For the AON diagram, please provide a diagram that depicts the correct sequencing of tasks and their connectivity to other tasks. If you want to challenge yourself, you can add in the duration to reflect the completed diagram; however, it is not a mandatory component of this assignment.

You are free to use templates and/or examples to help you get started, but it is best to work from start to ensure you have a clear handle on all information input into the diagram.
