You are currently entering tasks in a project plan. Although each of these tasks has an estimated duration, you do not want the project plan to display a question mark in the Duration field. What should you do? The option that displays the estimated duration status of tasks should be disabled The width of the Duration column should be modified to hide all question marks A template that does not have estimated durations for its tasks should be used to create a new project plan The question marks representing the estimates should be made to disappear by re-entering the same durations for all tasks.
You are busy with the creation of a project schedule and thus have to assign the resources to the tasks in the project as well. In this particular project, each task has to be assigned multiple resources. Furthermore, each task has an estimated duration which consequently also leads to estimate task duration for all the project phases. The project end date is not an issue and you just need to ensure that your resources are not overallocated. What should you do? First level the entire project. Then the option should be activated to level only within available slack. First level the entire project. Then the option level should be deactivated to only within available slack. First set all tasks to a fixed work type. Then the start and finish dates of each task should be adjusted. First all tasks have to be set to a fixed duration type. Then the start and finish dates of each task should be adjusted.
You are currently tracking a project. This project is subject to possible change for the overall duration of the project. One of the tasks on the project has been assigned a resource who works 8 hours a day, 5 days a week and 2 hours of each working day is spent creating reports for the project. You want the project schedule to reflect the estimated reporting work. What should you do? First create task that has a fixed duration of 1 week. Then enter 20 hours of work for each week for the duration of the entire project. Then assign the resource to the task at 100%. First create a fixed units task. Then link the start and finish date of the task to the start and finish date of the entire project. Then assign the resource to the task at 25%. First create a fixed work task and enter 2 hours of work for the task. Then link the start and finish dates of the task to the start and finish dates of the entire project. Then assign the resource to the task at 100%. First create a fixed duration task and enter 2 hours of work for the task. Then link the start and finish dates of the task to the start and finish dates of the entire project. Then assign the resource to the task at 100%.
You are in planning stages of your newly assigned project. This particular project is scheduled to start within one month's time and consists of multiple independent chains of activities. You must make sure that when you do enter tasks into the project schedule, the Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 schedules all tasks to either start on or after the projected start date of the project. What should you do? The appropriate start date should be set in the Project Information dialog box. The current date should be set in the Project Information dialog box. First the first task of the project should be set as the milestone. First the first task of the project should be set as a milestone. Then the projected start date should be entered into the Actual Start field.
You need to create a project plan and want to make use of one of the sample schedules that comes standard with Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007. You thus need to locate the sample schedule. What should you do? You should click On Computer in the New Project task pane and check the list of files. You should click the Insert dialog box and check the Documents folder. You should click the Open dialog box that appears when the default file type is selected and check the Documents folder that opens. You should click the Open dialog box that appears when the Template file type is selected and check the Documents folder that opens.
You are currently building a project schedule for your newly assigned project. This project contains 2 tasks where both tasks have a duration of 10 days. This project will, however, have to follow a certain sequence since the second task is dependent on the finish date of the first task in the project. You must make sure that the second task will commence 10 days after the completion of the first task. What should you do? Create a start-to-start dependency with a 10-day lag period. Create a start-to-finish dependency with a 10-day lag period. Create a finish-to-start dependency with a 10-day lag period. Create a finish-to-finish dependency with a 10-day lag period.
You are currently busy tracking your project. You have inserted a task and created the dependencies on the subtasks. The project sponsor requested that a milestone be placed at a specific phase of the project. You thus need to change that specific task connected to the phase where the project sponsor want the milestone, to a milestone. What should you do? You should set the duration of the task to 0 days. You should set the total slack of the task to 0 days. You should append the task name with the word Milestone. You should create a dependency from the task to the phase summary task.
The Certkiller.com policy regarding all Certkiller.com projects states that all projects must have a baseline and that performance is updated against this baseline when tracking is done. You are currently tracking the performance of one of the projects under your supervision and thus updated the project by the completion percentage of tasks. On this particular project, despite the fact that all values have been calculated, the actual cost of work performed (ACWP) shows $0.00 for all tasks. Now you need to ensure that the ACWP displays data other than $0.00. What should you do? First budget resources should be assigned to the project summary task. First standard resource rates that are greater than $0.00 should be entered. First the Manual calculation mode should be selected before performing the calculation. First the Physical % Complete option for earned value purposes should be selected.
You have been assigned one of the Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 computers and are busy monitoring the project currently under your supervision. Variables such as the progress lines and earned value of the project form the focus of your monitoring. You thus need to enter the status date in the project schedule to obtain an accurate calculation of the progress on the project. What should you do? In the Project Information dialog box you should enter the appropriate status date. In the Properties dialog box of the project files you should enter the appropriate status date. The settings that calculate progress lines based on the project status date should be modified. The settings that propagate changes made to the task completion status to the project status date should be modified.
The new Certkiller.com policy states that the standard working day period for Certkiller.com employees are to be 7.5 hours. You thus need to adapt your projects to reflect the new policy. To this end you created a new calendar in Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 and set it as the project calendar for the project currently under your supervision. Now you need to ensure that the project scheduling calculations also use a 7.5 hour working day in its calculations. What should you do? The calendar view should be modified to display a 7.5 hour working day. An exception entry should be created in the Standard calendar. The default work week details in the new calendar should be changed to reflect 7.5 hour working days. The work hours of the resources should be set as the non-default working time in the Standard calendar.
You are busy tracking a project under your supervision in Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007. The deadlines for several of the tasks on the project have already been entered. For the duration of the project there are both working- and non-working days that will occur between the tasks finish-date and the deadline-dates in this particular project. You now want to set up a method whereby the number of working days between the tasks finish-dates and the deadline-dates are automatically calculated. What should you do? You should use the ([Deadline] - [Finish])/1000 formula to customize a number field. You should use the ([Deadline] - [Finish])/1000 formula to customize a duration field. You should use the ProjDateDiff([Finish].[Deadline])/480 formula to customize a number field. You should use the (DateValue([Deadline]) - DateValue([Finish]))/480 formula to customize a number field.
At present you have several projects under your supervision. You make use of Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 to track your projects. Following is the process you followed: You enter the tasks of your projects. You then enter the duration of each task. You then assign multiple resources to each task. However, you now find that the duration of the tasks also changes whenever multiple resources are assigned to each of the tasks. You want the duration of all future tasks to remain the same automatically when resources are assigned to those tasks. What should you do? The manual calculation mode should be enabled. The duration of all existing tasks should be changed. The existing tasks' duration should be changed to a fixed duration. The default task type should be changed to a fixed duration.
You are currently creating a project plan for one of the projects under your supervision. You need to report to the manager how many hours of work are required for a certain task on your project. This specific task has a fixed duration of 10 days. You thus need to calculate the amount of resources that will be required to complete this specific task in the time allocated. What should you do? The assignment units should be set equal to the task duration. The assignment units should be set equal to the estimated number of hours of work. The task duration should be set equal to the estimated number of hours of work. Then use the resource histogram to view the number of hours. One resource should be assigned to the task. Then enter the estimated number of hours of work. Then use the Gantt Chart view to view the assignment units.
You are currently creating a project that has a fixed completion date. The Certkiller.com manager named Amy Wilson wants to know what the latest possible date that this project can commence and complete successfully is. You need to provide Amy Wilson with the latest possible commencement date for this project. What should you do? You should place a Finish No Later Than constraint on the completion milestone in the project schedule. You should set the Schedule From option in the Project Information dialog box appropriately. You should set the deadline date of the completion milestone to the fixed completion date. You should enable the Tasks will always honor their constraint dates in the Scheduling options.
You are currently creating a project plan that consists of three separate tasks. You are using the manual calculation mode to create these tasks in the project plan. You then view the project plan in the Gantt Chart view. Following exhibit shows the project plan. [CANNOT PASTE EXHIBIT, FIGURE IT OUT] However, this display of tasks in parallel is not the desired view. You want the Gantt chart to automatically display the tasks in sequence. What should you do? The Calendar view should be displayed. A project calculation should be performed. The project options should be set to allow Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 to automatically link inserted or moved tasks. The project options should be set to allow Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 to automatically add new resources and tasks.
Your predecessor at Certkiller.com created task lists in Microsoft Office Excel 2003. You need to reuse those tasks lists. To this end you have to convert the Microsoft Office Excel 2003 task lists into a Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 project schedule. What should you do? You should insert an Excel Worksheet into the project in Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007. You should copy the Task Export Table map from the Global.mpt file to the project using the Organizer in Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007. You should use Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 to open the Excel worksheet that has the task lists.

The Certkiller.com CIO called for an urgent meeting on a large new project. You have been assigned as the project manager for this specific project. In this meeting that is about to commence, you must display the current status of the project including the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) numbers. Since this is a new project you have not yet had the time to customize the WBS code. You need to display the WBS numbers as quickly as possible for this meeting. What should you do? The WBS numbers must be entered as part of the task names. The project options must be modified to display the outline number. Make reference to the ID field in a task table that is in use. A Unique ID field should be inserted in a task table that is in use. Panic and scream like Dan.
You have been called on by the Certkiller.com CIO to make a presentation of all the projects that are currently under your supervision. All the projects that you manage follow standard project lifecycle phases that are evident in the project schedules. In your presentation you need to display all the tasks of all projects by phase. What should you do? Create a task summary for each phase to display all the tasks within a master project that contains all your projects. Use the standard project life cycle phases as summary tasks to create a project plan template. Display all your projects with this plan template. First create a shared resource pool and associate it with all your projects. Then assign resources to summary tasks representing all your projects to display all tasks of all your projects. First create a custom task text field with a value for each phase within a master project that contains all your projects. Then associate all tasks with one of the values. Then group all tasks by this field to display all your projects by phase.
[UNABLE TO PASTE DIAGRAM] The Certkiller.com CIO wants to know all the possible factors that will influence the Task 4 start date. You need to display the appropriate information in a meeting. You should use the Task Usage view. You should use the Task Drivers pane. You should use the Resource Usage view. You should use the Project Information dialog box.

The % Work Complete text should be added to the bar styles for all tasks.
Many of your projects contain tasks that require various types of resources. You need to give a display of all the tasks in your project schedule. In particular you are requested to display only tasks that make use of role-based resources, in groups according to the resource to which these tasks are assigned. What should you do? You should filter the view by resource name and then view the tasks in the Resource Usage view. You should filter the view by resource name and then view the tasks in the Task Entry view. You should apply a custom filter to display the generic resources and then view the tasks in the Resource Usage view. You should apply a custom filter to display the non-generic resources and then view the tasks in the Task Entry view.
You are currently creating tasks in a project plan for one of your projects. You want to be able to see the start and finish dates of the project, as well as the start and finish dates of the tasks of this project, on the table side of the Gantt Chart view. What should you do? The Work table should be displayed. The Schedule table should be displayed. The Project Summary Task should be displayed. The default project summary overview reports should be generated.
You are currently in a meeting and must display the project schedule for one of your projects in the Gantt Chart view. You also need to display the actual cost of work performed (ACWP) for the last day of the previous update period. What should you do? Use the end date of the last update period and set it as the status date. Use the end date of the last update period and set it as the current date. Use the Earned Value method of all tasks and set it to Physical % Complete. Use the Earned Value method of the project and set it to Physical % Complete.
You are currently busy managing a project schedule. The project plan consists of 100 new tasks which are all expected to have a duration of 5 days each. To this end you enter a 5 in the Duration field of each of these tasks. However, after every third task that you create, Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 displays a message about an alternative method that can be used to set the task duration. You want to stop this message from being displayed after the creation of every third task. What should you do? (Each correct answer presents a complete solution. Choose TWO.) The Project Guide should be turned off. The Don't tell me about this again check box, in the Message box should be selected. The feature that provides scheduling advice in the general program options should be disabled. The feature that provides Microsoft Office Projects usage advice in the general program options should be disabled.
You are currently managing 2 project schedules. These projects are dependent on each other and are named Certkiller1 and Certkiller2 respectively. The dependency between Certkiller1 and Certkiller2 is of such a nature that Task A in Certkiller1 cannot begin until Task B in Certkiller2 is complete. To this end you inserted both Certkiller1 and Certkiller2 into a master project. Now you need to represent the dependency relationship between the schedules of Certkiller1 and Certkiller2. What should you do? You should create a start-to-finish dependency. Then save the changes to the master project, Certkiller1 and Certkiller2. You should create a finish-to-start dependency. Then save changes to the master project, Certkiller1 and Certkiller2. You should create a start-to-finish dependency. Then save the changes to the master project only. You should create a finish-to-start dependency. Then save the changes to the master project only.
You are currently managing a project schedule. This particular project contains a scheduled task that will take 100 hours of work and a duration period of 10 days. At present there is only one resource allocated to the project tasks, but there is a possibility that you will get more resources. You now need to adjust the setup of the task in such a way so as to accommodate the project when the additional resource is assigned to your project. In your solution you must make sure that the additional resource will share the hours with the original resource and that the finish date remains unchanged. You should use a fixed work task type. You should use a fixed unit, effort-driven task type. You should use a fixed duration, effort-driven task type. You should use a fixed duration, non effort-driven task type.
You are currently managing a project schedule. This particular project is due for payment on the first day of the next month. The start of the task on this project is schedules to be at any time after receipt of payment. You thus need to model this task appropriately in the project schedule. What should you do? A finish-to-start dependency between the task and a placeholder task for the receipt of payment should be set. The task should be entered with a Must Start On constraint for the first day of the next month. A task calendar for the task should be created with the first day of the next month as an exception. A start-to-finish dependency between the task and a placeholder task for the receipt of payment should be set.
You are currently busy assigning resources to your project. You thus allocate generic resources to a task and apply a work contour to some of the assignments. Now you need to view the assignments to check that the work is properly distributed. What should you do? You should use a Network Diagram view. You should use a Resource Graph view. You should use a Resource Sheet view. You should use a Task Usage view.
You are currently busy managing a project schedule of a project that has three sponsors. The resources assigned to the project are located in two different sites. The project consists of five phases. Each of the five phases is synchronized across the two sites. Each of the sites makes use of three work types, namely Design, Build and Test. The project sponsors have different requests regarding the reporting of their projects. The one sponsor prefers to see the schedule of the project grouped by phase, whereas the other sponsor prefers the schedule grouped by site, and the third sponsor prefers the schedule grouped by work type. You thus need to comply with the sponsors' requests and modify the schedule to be grouped by all three attributes. What should you do? You should define a mask showing Phase, Site and Work Type using an outline code. You should define a different custom Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) codes for each sponsor. You should allow grouping by any of the three criteria by using text field for the Phase, Site and Work Type attributes. You should use color coding to represent Site attributes, font coding to represent Work Type attributes and organize the project by Phase.
You have already created a new task in a project plan. Resources have been assigned to the task. Currently the default task duration setting is set at 1 day comprising of 7 hours in the day. A new Certkiller.com policy states that the normal working day is to be lengthened to 8 hours. You need to change the calendar options' default setting to comply with the new policy. What should you do? You should set the hours per day to 8 in the calendar option. You should set the hours per week to 40 in the calendar option. You should set the days per month to 20 in the calendar option. You should set the default start tine to 9:00 A.M. and the default end time to 5:00 P.M. in the calendar option.
A Certkiller.com user named Amy Wilson works on a part-time basis. Consequently Amy Wilson is only available to perform her tasks for three days per week. At present the calendar for Amy Wilson has been edited to block out her non-working days. In addition her working days are further restricted since only certain tasks may be performed on certain days. You need to manage the project schedule in such a fashion so as to accommodate Amy Wilson. You thus created a calendar that indicates those specific days. What should you do? The new calendar should be assigned to the task. A vacation exception should be created on the project calendar. The resource calendar for Amy Wilson should be changed to match the task calendar. The resource calendar for Amy Wilson should be changed to override the task calendar.
For each of the projects under your supervision, you have a resource calendar for each project resource. A Certkiller.com user named Andy Reid is due for a vacation. His vacation will spread over various days staggered within one calendar month. You need to ensure that Andy Reid is not allocated any work on his schedule for those specific days while he would be on vacation. What should you do? You should change the default work week in the project calendar accordingly. You should create an exception for those specific days in the resource calendar. You should select the dates corresponding to the vacation days and create an entry named Vacation in the Calendar view. You should assign Andy Reid to a new task named Vacation with the corresponding start and finish dates in the schedule accordingly.
You are currently tracking one of your projects. This particular project contains a task in its project schedule that has two resources assignments. These resource assignments are named TK1 and TK2 respectively. Both TK1 and TK2 is expected to take 40 hours to complete. The only difference between TK1 and TK2 is that they can begin a week apart although they are both assigned to one task. Consequently you need to adapt the project schedule to reflect this difference in start dates that are assigned to one task in the project. What should you do? You should create one resource for the task. Then assign 80 hours of work to this resource in the project schedule. You should create a task that is scheduled for 2 weeks. Then assign both the resources to the task where TK1 is assigned to be front loaded and TK2 is assigned to be back loaded. You should create a task that runs over 40 hours set to occur in a 2 week period. Then assign both TK1 and TK2 to the task where the TK1 start date is set for the beginning of the first week and the TK2 start date is set for the following week. You should create a tasks scheduled for a 2 week period. Then assign both TK1 and TK2 to the task. Then assign 40 hours of work to both TK1 and TK2 with the TK1 start date set for the beginning of the first week and TK2 start date for the following week.

You thus need to apply the processes in Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 for future use. What should you do? Your first step should be to create a Project Guide. Your first step should be to display the Task Drivers pane. Your first step should be to display the Hyperlinks column. Your first step should be to display the Microsoft Office Online Web site.
You just started a new project for Certkiller.com. Part of your duties also includes tracking the project. To this end you have to compare the original project schedule to the current project schedule. This comparison must be done in the default Tracking Gantt view. What should you do? A baseline should be set. An interim plan should be set. A progress line should be added. The project tasks should be updated.
Although you are currently busy with a project, you have been assigned so many projects and there are also talks of many future projects that you will have to manage for Certkiller.com. Many of these projects are similar in nature. You thus need to plan your work in an efficient manner. To this end you want to reuse the information from your current project. You now need to save the task, the task durations, views, as well as formatting of the current project for future reuse. What should you do? Your current project should be saved as a template. A baseline of the project schedule of the current project should be created. The project rows from the Gantt Chart view should be copied into another project file. The reusable information of your current project should be transferred into the Global.mpt file using the Organizer.
You have been appointed recently and want to make use of a project plan that was created by your predecessor. That project plan must serve as an example of how Certkiller.com wants their projects to be managed. Though you want to use that project plan you do not want the predecessor's name to be associated with your project plan. At present the author name associated with the project is that of your predecessor. What should you do? The macro security level should be increased to a High setting. The user name should be deleted from the program options. The authors resource should be removed from the resource pool. The removal of information should be enabled on the file properties.
You are currently developing a project schedule. Following is the procedure that you followed: Create a fixed units task. Make the task effort-driven. Make the task duration 10 days. Assign two resources to the task. All Certkiller.com resources work 8 hours per day. Your project is expected to take 160 hours of effort. You need to assign the resources to the tasks in such a way so that the 160 hours of effort is divided evenly. What should you do? The resources should be assigned individually, accepting the default values. The resources should be assigned individually, entering a Units value of 50%. The resources should be assigned simultaneously, accepting the default values. The resources should be assigned simultaneously, entering a Units value of 50%.
You are currently busy tracking your project schedule. You have assigned a resource to the tasks that have been scheduled to run during normal working hours. You have just been informed that the hourly rate of that specific resource will increase by 15% beginning the first day of the following month. You must now adapt your project costs to reflect this increase in hourly rate of the resource without changing any of the resource's assignments. What should you do? The Cost Rate tables should be modified to display a cost per use of +15% effective on the first day of the following month. The Cost Rate tables should be modified to display a standard cost of +15% effective on the first day of the following month. The tasks should be filtered to display only the tasks that make use of that resource. Then add a fixed cost of 15% of the current cost of the task for each of the tasks. A resource with a standard cost of 15% of the existing standard cost should be created. Then a duplicate of the existing resource's assignments should be allocated to the new resource.
You are currently tracking a project. You created a new base calendar for this project and need to make it the default calendar. What should you do? A copy of the standard calendar should be created. The Set as Default button in the calendar options should be enabled. The new base calendar should be set as the project calendar.

You need to comply with this Certkiller.com policy. What should you do? July should be set as the start of the fiscal year. Then make this the default. A project plan template with a project start date of June 30 should be created. A project plan template with a project start date of 1 July should be created. July should be set as the start of the fiscal year. Then use the starting year for numbering.
A Certkiller.com multi-level project has been completed. You are assigned to the management of this project schedule. Due to the multi-level scheduled nature of the project there are several milestones at different levels in the project hierarchy. Certkiller.com resources usually report the names and finish dates of project milestones in a Microsoft Office Excel workbook format. You need to do a report on this multi-level project and want to export the project milestone data from your Microsoft Office Projects Standard 2007 format to a Microsoft Office Excel workbook format. What should you do? Use the Project Excel Template option to save the project file as an Excel workbook. Use the existing top-level task mapping with its prompts to save the project file as an Excel workbook. Create a new task-based map that includes the name and finish fields and the milestone filter to save the project file as an Excel workbook. Show only the milestones by filtering the schedule appropriately. Then use the existing top-level task mapping with its prompts to save the project file as an Excel workbook.
You are currently busy managing a project. You organized the project with the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) codes. The Certkiller.com accountant named Mia Hamm requires the project to be organized in such a way so that she is able to break down and groups costs in a different manner that will suit her needs. You thus need to provide Mia Hamm with a different code that will enable her to do her work. What should you do? The Cost Performance Index should be used. An Outline code with a mask for cost data should be used. A duplicate file that has WBS code set up according to cost should be created. A project specific prefix should be used to differentiate between cost items and work items.
You have been assigned a project that will run over several years. You need to set up the project schedule to in such a way so as to enable you to switch between viewing all tasks organized by Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and by the month these tasks are scheduled to end in an efficient manner. What should you do? A custom filter that is based on the Date Range filter should be created. A Group By criteria for finish dates, with an interval of months, should be defined. The middle-tier interval should be set in months on the project time scale. The bottom-tier interval should be set in months on the project time scale.
You are currently tracking your project. This specific project includes multiple deliverables that has each been broken down into various multiple tasks. You thus need to create a multi-level Work Breakdown Structure that will reflect all the tasks and the deliverables of this project. What should you do? Costs should be distributed to the deliverables and resources to the tasks. The deliverables should be entered with indented associated tasks. The deliverables should be entered with their tasks in the Notes field. The deliverables should be entered with their dependencies to their associated tasks.
You are managing a project that is in essence a consolidated project that links to several subprojects. You now need to add a new task to one of these subprojects. However, you have to insert the addition from within the consolidated project file. What should you do? The subproject should be collapsed before you insert the new task directly below it. The subproject should be expanded before you insert the new task into it. The project summary task of the subproject should be selected before you insert the new task into it. The new task should first be inserted into the consolidated project then you can insert links to the new task.
You are currently creating a project plan and have to assign the appropriate resources to tasks in the projects. Some of the tasks required by this specific project are of high importance and it is vital that you do not over-allocate resources in the project plan. You now just need to level the scheduling, but you need to take care that the high importance tasks are not affected by the leveling process. What should you do?

You are currently planning your project. Your specific project has a fixed budget and you want to make use of the Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 budget-tracking feature to track the project costs against the fixed budget. You thus need to set up the project plan in such a way that will allow you to start tracking costs. What should you do? First a project baseline should be saved. Budget resources should first be created. The Earned Value Cost Indicators table should first be displayed. Cost resources should first be assigned to the project summary task.
You are currently managing a project. On your specific project you experienced an increase in the cost of a resource. It just so happened that the resource is assigned to a task that is currently in progress. You will thus have to update your project budget accordingly. Now you want to perform this update to the project budget in such a way so that Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 will automatically calculate future costs without requiring manual adjustments. What should you do? The resource standard rate should be updated in the Resource Sheet. The resource Actual Cost should be updated in the Resource Usage view. The standard rate must be set to increase on the effective date of the resource cost increase in the Resources Cost table. A resource with a new rate should be created and assigned to the tasks that the original resource were assigned to starting on or after the effective date of cost increase.
You have been assigned a construction project and need to track the costs. The Certkiller.com policy states that all construction projects costs should be tracked on a pro-rata basis. To comply with this policy on this construction project you thus decided to track your project costs on a prorata basis related to the consumption of supplies like bricks and mortar. There is one project task that requires a special mortar that is available at $60 per bag. It is estimated that your project's mortar consumption rate will be 5 bags per week. You need to estimate the cost of your construction project with regard to mortar costs regardless of how long the task will take to complete. What should you do? A budget resource with a standards rate of $300 per week should be assigned. A work resource with a standard rate of $60 to a task with a Units value of 5 should be assigned. A material resource with a standard rate of $60 to a task with a Units value of 5 should be assigned. A material resource with a standard rate of $60 to a task with a Units value of 5/w should be assigned.
You are currently creating a project schedule. Following is the procedure that you followed: Enter task names, Enter start dates, Enter task durations. All the tasks on this project, except the first task and the last task has at least one predecessor and one successor. It has come to your attention that it would be possible to complete all the Phase 1 tasks of your project faster than originally estimated. When you shorten the durations of the tasks, the finish date does not change. Consequently you need to adjust the schedule to enable it to estimate an accurate finish date. What should you do? The shortened tasks should be deleted and then re-entered. The Constraint Date column should be inserted into the project schedule. Then type in the finish date. The constraint type for all tasks should be set to As Soon As Possible to remove the start date constraints. The tasks should be made effort-driven. Then assign resources to the tasks to reduce work associated with each task.
