Develop a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and project schedule in a Gantt format for the EMail Upgrade Project described in the scenario. The WBS and resultant schedule
should contain the following highlevel activities:
1.0 Evaluate User & System Requirements
2.0 Evaluate ODHS Network Suitability
3.0 Conduct Email System Selection
4.0 Upgrade ODHS Network & Hardware
5.0 Develop Email Training
6.0 Deploy Email System
Each of the six WBS elements should be decomposed into two or more activities; additionally, three of these six elements should be decomposed into a third level consisting of
at least two more activities. Thus, there should be six high level WBS elements, twelve or more second level activities (two per the six elements), and six third level activities. Use
the format described above to define the activities (action verb followed by subject, such as Deploy Email System).
The Gantt chart should be developed based on the WBS (all activities should be detailed on the Gantt chart). The Gantt chart should reflect the proper dependencies of each of
the activities (for example, you can’t have “Deploy Email System” before “Evaluate User Requirements”). For activity duration, provide a reasonable estimate of the time you
expect each activity to take; while students are not expected to provide accurate durations, durations should be reasonably defensible and logical. For formatting ease, high level
activities should be left justified while second and third level activities should be indented below their parent activities.
