ITMG 321 ITMG321 Week 3 Case Study (American Public University)
C-3. System Conversion Project and create a WBS for the conversion project.
D-1. Use Parts 1,2, and 3 of the case study named Billing system Conversion Project, and answer the following:
How would you determine how much work is required for the Billing System Conversion Project?
D-4. Using Parts1, 2 and 3 of the case study named Billing System Conversion Project, list five assumptions you would make when creating effort time, elapsed time, and cost estimates for the conversion project.
Use Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the case study named Billing System Conversion Project, and the Training cost table (located in Appendix B, Topic C) to prepare a bottom- up budget for training costs. Assume the training will be provided on-site in ten different locations. Allocate the number and type of staff to meet a budget of $1 million realistically for internal staff. Consider interactions between internal and external personnel (for example, purchasing personnel and internal and external programmers/analysts).
What assumptions have you made?
2 Discuss two potential trade offs that could be made to help ensure the project is finished on time, even though they would increase project costs.
