# Unit 5 indiviual project mgmt412 | project management

Mike was hired as a project manager to install hardwood floors for the company Awesome Floor and Tile. They will be installing new flooring into a local office building. Mike comes up with the list of work and estimates the time. A list of activities and their optimistic completion time, the most likely completion time, and the pessimistic completion time (all in days) are estimated in a given table. Following are the activities that are required to install the hardwood floor in the offices:

• Activity 1: Measure office room dimensions
• Activity 2: Estimate cost
• Activity 3: Material requisition
• Activity 4: Workforce requisition
• Activity 5: Special tool requisition
• Activity 6: Installation
• Activity 7: Inspection and customer acceptance

Activity 2 starts immediately after Activity 1.

Activity 3, Activity 4, and Activity 5 start concurrently after Activity 2.

Activity 6 does not start until after Activity 3, Activity 4, and Activity 5 are completed.

The carpet installation project is complete after Activity 7 is completed.

If OT = Optimistic Time, MT = Most Likely Time, and PT = Pessimistic Time, use a Program Evaluation Review Estimate (PERT) to compute the statistical time for each activity, as in the following table:
