Marketing assignment help

As the project manager you are required to present an initial project report to the project sponsor that shows how you propose to implement this project. As the project manager you may make any assumptions you think are necessary.
Case study – Grand Wines
You are an employee of Grand Wines Ltd and project leader of a proposed project to equip each of the company’s 20 sales representatives with a wireless data entry device by which they could instantly communicate customer orders to the company’s central sales database in Sydney. The sales representatives operate over all areas of NSW and service around 400 independent wine and liquor stores in the state.
Currently, the sales representatives complete customer orders manually and after leaving a copy with the customer, they forward the customer orders by mail or fax to the sales department in Sydney, where the orders are entered into the sales database and processed through the inventory system for shipment to the customer.
The problems with the current process are:

? At least one-day is lost in supplying customers with products because of the delays in getting orders into the system.
? Sales representatives do not know the latest inventory position of their products when they accept orders from the customer. Delays in delivery can result when orders are placed on “back-order” because of a lack of stock.
? Orders are often “lost” or entered into the sales database incorrectly through human error. ? The sales representatives and many customers are dissatisfied with the current situation.
Competitive wine companies have improved their order systems and are outperforming Grand Wines Ltd in terms of delivery speed, order accuracy, availability of ordered stock and overall customer satisfaction.
Your CEO has stressed the importance of the project to the company and asked you to use your skills as a project manager to make sure the project is successful by following the relevant project management processes.
You have been assigned a project leader of this project. Your manager has given you guidance that the project needs to be completed within 6 months and that costs should be minimised wherever possible with given budget of AUD 60000.00.
ITC505 Assignment 2 template
Please use the below given sample formats when answering the assignment 2 questions.
This assignment follows from the case study used in Assessment 2. For the same case study, complete the following tasks by creating the following:

Understanding specific need in health and social care
Task -1: Scope Management Plan (10 Marks)
Scope management plan( including Requirements, In scope-out scope items, Deliverables and scope verification process) to direct your efforts. (10 marks)
Requirements: List of functions and features in your application
In scope-out scope items: In scope items are list of requirements that are going to be implemented as part of this system. Out scope items are list of functions and features that are not going to be implemented in this project but can be done later for this application.
Deliverables:
Scope verification process: this is built from the Acceptance criteria listed
Task 2: WBS (level 2/3) – Word doc or MS Project (20 Marks)
WBS first using either the free-form or the org chart format. (20 marks)
You need to create level 3 WBS. It should have a minimum of 40 tasks. Use the indented format and level 1 as 4 phases of project life cycle.
Task 3: Gantt chart (10 Marks) –
Gantt chart-Take the WBS you have already developed. Define all of the activities that will be necessary to create each deliverable in your WBS. Create a schedule for your project. First create the schedule by hand using Post-it® Notes, and then put the information into MS Project. Take screenshots of the schedule to be pasted in your word document that you are submitting. Be sure to include all of the summary rows (including the first row for the project title) and any key milestones. Make sure the critical path is easy to see.- 10 marks
Firstly you need to do Activity Estimation i.e. estimate the duration of each activity and Secondly dependencies between eh activities need to be determined before you can create a schedule and MS Project builds the Gann chart. You also need to allocate resources to each activity ( 1 resource per activity) from the table given below (PS: You do not need to use all the resources listed below, you may use the ones you need to complete your project) Gantt chart should include all the resources allocated in this project. You should attach the MS project screenshots to prove your workings.
The Resource table to be used for allocating resources is as below

Working Hours 8 hours per day ( 8.30 - 5.30pm) -
1 hour for lunch
Project Start Date 4 Jan 2016
Task 4:
Create a time-phased budget for your example project using bottom-up estimating. As you allocate resources to the activity your budget is being created. After you extract the Gantt chart, revisit the activity list and be sure to check direct labour costs for you and your team has been added and add 20% for fringe.
In this section, State all assumptions and constraints you have used when creating your budget. Give examples of known knowns and known unknowns ( these are financial risks) on your project. Describe how you have budgeted for both of them plus how you have budgeted for unknown unknowns (15 Marks)
Task 5: Risk Register
Create a risk register In the form of a risk register as per the format and example below
(4 risks- 3 negative and 1 positive risk) for your example project. (20 marks)
Conclusion
Students are required to submit the range of documents describing their proposed project solution for the above task, along with all the appropriate Microsoft Project 2007 files.

Requirements
Students are required to submit the range of documents describing their proposed project solution for the above tasks.
Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
? The first major section (1.0) should be project management and include the various project management deliverables such as charter, WBS, schedule, progress reports, etc.
? Deliverables should match those in the charter.
? Each item on the WBS should have a unique name. If there is possible confusion between two items add an extra adjective to differentiate them. For example, two items could be “first draft report” and “second draft report.”
? Each line should be numbered with major sections being 1.0 then 2.0, etc.
? Each major section should be broken down into between three and twelve subsidiary sections. If further breakdown is needed, more levels should be used.

Travel and tourism Management
? All items on WBS are deliverables oriented (they are the “whats” of the project).
Activities are defined as an outgrowth of the WBS and will appear in the schedule. ? The WBS can be submitted in free-form, org-chart, or indented-outline format.
? The WBS should appear to be complete with all interim and ending deliverables included.
Schedule / Gantt chart
? The schedule should appear to be complete given the charter and WBS.
? The schedule should appear to be reasonable without requiring heroics to complete on time.
