Part A: Project Schedule Create a multi-level work breakdown
structure (WBS) and detailed project schedule, using the
information from the “Greendale Stadium Case” located below, and
incorporating the following constraints. Note: When you create your
MS Project schedule, you will need to update your project per the
following constraints:

The project must consist of at least twenty (20) tasks. Each
task must have a start and finish date that matches the duration
noted in the assignment. Each task must be assigned to a resource
(e.g., Demolishing Crew; Construction Crew; Landscaping Crew).
Assume that the crew works during normal weekdays (no weekend work)
under normal conditions (8 hours per day).

In terms of holidays, you can assume no work will be done the
following days: New Year’s Day, President’s Day, Good Friday, Good
Monday, Friday before Memorial Day, Memorial Day, the business day
before Independence Day, Independence Day, the Friday before Labor
Day, Labor Day, the day before Thanksgiving Day, Thanksgiving Day,
Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving), the business day before
Christmas, Christmas Day, the business day after Christmas Day, and
New Year’s Eve.

Greendale Stadium Case info. below:

The G&E Company is preparing a bid to build the new 47,000
seat Greendale baseball stadium. The construction must start July
1, 2011, and be completed in time for the start of the 2014 season.
A penalty clause of $100,000 per day of delay beyond May 20, 2014,
is written into the contract. Ben Keith, the president of the
company, expressed optimism at obtaining the contract and revealed
that the company could net as much as $2 million on the project. He
also said if they are successful, the prospects for future projects
are quite good since there is a projected renaissance in building
classic ball parks with modern luxury boxes.

ASSIGNMENT

Given the information provided in Table 6.3, construct a network
schedule for the stadium project and answer the following
questions: Will the project be able to be completed by the May 20
deadline? How long will it take? What is the critical path for the
project? Based on the schedule would you recommend that G&E
pursue this contact? Why? Include a one-page Gantt chart for the
stadium schedule.

CASE APPENDIX: TECHNICAL DETAILS OF THE GREENDALE BASEBALL
STADIUM The baseball stadium is an outdoor structure with a
retractable roof. The project begins with clearing the site, an
activity that lasts 70 days. Once the site is clear, work can start
simultaneously on the structure itself and demolishing an adjacent
building site. This demolition is necessary to create a
construction stage for storing materials and equipment. It will
take 30 days to demolish the buildings and another 70 days to set
up the construction site.

The work on the stadium begins by driving 160 support pilings,
which will take 120 days. Next comes the pouring of the lower
concrete bowl (120 days). Once this is done and the construction
site has been set up, then the pouring of the main concourse (120
days), the installation of the playing field (90 days), and the
construction of the upper steel bowl can occur (120 days). Once the
concourse and upper bowl are completed, work can start
simultaneously on building the luxury boxes (90 days), installing
the seats (140 days), installing the jumbotron (30 days), and
installing stadium infrastructure (120 days) which includes:
bathrooms, lockers, restaurants, etc. Once the seats are installed
then the steel canopy can be constructed (75 days) followed by the
installation of the lights (30 days). The retractable roof
represents the most significant technical challenge to the project.
Building the roof track supports (90 days) can begin after the
lower concrete bowl is constructed. At this time the dimensions of
the roof can be finalized and the construction of the roof at a
separate site can begin (180 days). After the roof supports are
completed then the roof tracks can be installed (90 days). Once the
tracks and the roof are completed then the roof can be installed
and made operational (90 days). Once all activities are completed
it will take 20 days to inspect the stadium.

For purposes of this case assume the following: The following
holidays are observed: January 1, Memorial Day (last Monday in
May), July 4th, Labor Day (first Monday in September), Thanksgiving
Day (4th Thursday in November), December 25 and 26. If a holiday
falls on a Saturday then Friday will be given as an extra day off,
and if it falls on a Sunday then Monday will be given as a day off.
The construction crew work Monday through Friday.
