BUSI680 Advanced Project Management Part 1
Question 1If resources are truly limited and activity time estimates are accurate, the resource-constrained schedule will materialize as the project is implemented, not the time-constrained schedule
Question 2When a company will reduce the number of projects they have to manage internally to only core projects and send noncritical projects to contractors and consulting firms this is called
Question 3Which of the following is NOT one of the more common problems associated with scheduling multiproject resources?
Question 4In a resource-constrained project, the first priority in assigning resources is usually given to activities with the
Question 5This is used to compare the cost accounts between organizational units and deliverables
Question 6In a resource-constrained project the second priority in assigning resources is usually given to activities with the
Question 7The fact that you must pour foundation before you frame the house and that you have to frame the house before you can put on the roof demonstrates scheduling constraints
Question 8When considering the sequence and timing of activities, which of the following is NOT one of the types of project network constraints?
Question 9A lack of readily available engineers is a technical constraint
Question 10Splitting is a scheduling technique used to get a better schedule or better resource utilization and should be used without hesitation
Question 11Most of the scheduling methods available today require the project manager to classify the project as either _______ constrained or ______ constrained
Question 12When resource constraints are added to technical constraints the original project network may change as well as the completion date
Question 13When deciding which staff to team-up to work on work packages, factors to consider are:
Question 14All of the following are types of resource constraints EXCEPT
Question 15Tony has realized that two activities in his project cannot be done at the same time because not enough resources are availableActivity 3 is critical and has a duration of 5 days Activity 4 has 2 days of slack and a duration of 2 days How will he decide which activity should be scheduled first?
Question 16In a resource-constrained project, which of the following is most likely to be changed?
Question 17When looking at the critical path for a delayed project and the project manager sees that adding resources will reduce or remove the delay, the project manager knows that the project is
Question 18Resource bottlenecks are one of the three more common problems encountered in managing multiproject resource schedules
Question 19Resource dependency takes priority over technological dependency but it does not violate it
Question 20A project budget report is showing our project as spending $35,000 against a budgeted amount of $40,000Which of the following is true?
Question 21Resource leveling or smoothing is only used on projects which are resource constrained
Question 22Since resource leveling or smoothing delays noncritical activities, a common result is a decrease in network sensitivity
Question 23Which of the following is NOT a potential consequence of failing to identify limited resources before project implementation?
Question 24Comparing Planned Costs versus Actual Costs will give the project manager a quick understanding of the status of the project
Question 25When developing a new software package, logically, the software must be designed before the code is written, and the code must be written before it is testedThese activities are dependent on each other by _________ constraints
