Defense Acquisition University PMT 252 252 Module 4 test/Module 4 Exam

Document Content and Description Below

Contains 21 Questions (Attempt=1/3) Module 4 Exam 1) Which 14-Point Schedule Metric verifies that all tasks with durations greater than zero have dollars or hours assigned? 4.8 pg. 18 of 40 Baseli... ne Execution Index (BEI) High Float Resources Leads 2) In a Gantt chart, which of the following is signified as a simple, solid bar with distinct start and finish designators? 4.4 pg. 9 of 73 Summary Task Non-Critical Task Critical Task Summary Task, In Progress 3) Which of the following is a viable solution to schedule time constraint issues? 4.6 pg. 12 of 63 Accepting a shorter length of time for the project Shortening task durations for tasks on the critical path Cutting resources Adding more tasks to the critical path 4) Consider the characteristics of the three types of network schedules: Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT), Arrow Diagram Method (ADM), and Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM). Which of the following is a true statement? 1 10162577 1 10162545 1 10162563 1 4.4 pg. 54 of 73 PDM was developed to overcome the disadvantages of PERT and ADM, and doesn't treat all task relationships as "Finish-to-Start (FS)." All three types of network schedules rely on time estimates for each activity to build an accurate schedule. PERT and PDM use the FS task relationship while ADM can use any type of task relationship. PDM and ADM are seldom used due to the increase of computer-based scheduling tools. 5) In which step of the Schedule Development and Management Process do you identify the quantity and types of labor categories required to complete a task? Determine Resource Requirements Identify Tasks Monitor and Control Program Schedule Estimate Task Duration 6) Which schedule type is also referred to as a bar chart since it depicts a task as a horizontal bar imposed over a time line or calendar? Internal schedule Gantt chart Milestone chart Network diagram 7) A proposal manager asks the team to provide "80%" estimates for their schedule. The team believes that they have an 80% chance of finishing on time, when in reality, they do not. In this example, the team clearly does not take into account the overall uncertainty of the program. Which of the following causes for schedule risks and delays is being described? (VERBATIM) 4.7 pg. 25 of 38 10162553 1 10175089 1 10162542 1 10162570 1 Incorrect schedule relationships or logic Uncertainty in task duration estimates Unrealistic milestones or deadlines Inability to change the number of tasks 8) The detailed tasks required to be completed and identified in the time-based Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) are directly linked to what element of the event-based Integrated Master Plan (IMP)? Accomplishment Assignment Event Criteria 9) Which of the following components of the Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM) is identified by expanding the schedule to display the Start and Finish columns? Earliest and Latest Start and Finish Dates Task identifiers Float/Slack Critical Path 10) Which of the following are characteristics of the forward pass, one of the components of the Critical Path Method (CPM)? (Select three that apply.) Results in the earliest start dates for all the tasks Continues to the last task in accordance with task relationships Begins with the first task in the schedule 10175085 1 10162556 1 10162559 6 Results in the latest finish dates for all the tasks 11) Which schedule resource constraint solution is best used when there is a program benefit to using resources other than those originally planned? Adding resources Adjusting the schedule to accommodate slack Reducing program scope Substituting resources 12) Which schedule duration estimating method uses statistical relationships determined from historical data to calculate the estimate for certain tasks? 4.10 pg. 14 of 42 Parametric Estimate Single-Point Estimate Analogous Estimate Three-Point Estimate 13) How are schedules in a schedule change management system similar to project elements under configuration management (CM)? In both a schedule change management system and CM, the first version is used consistently throughout the entire project. In both a schedule change management system and CM, each version needs to be managed, controlled, and constantly monitored. In both a schedule change management system and CM, changes to versions can be made without notifying team members. In both a schedule change management system and CM, versions are monitored only by the program manager (PM). 14) When is Agile Project Management typically used during the scheduling process? 10162568 1 10162532 1 10162536 1 4.10 pg. 20 of 42 When the schedule is stable and low-risk When the schedule requires only one sprint When requirements are likely to be fixed throughout the entire project When requirements are likely to change as the project progresses 15) Consider the differences between a resource-constrained schedule and a timeconstrained schedule. Which constraint occurs when there is a shortage of people, equipment, facilities, or materials; and which constraint occurs when the length of the critical path surpasses the allotted time for the project? 4.6 pg. 11 of 53 Resource constraint, schedule constraint Management constraint, time constraint Time constraint, resource constraint Resource constraint, time constraint 16) Prior to using the 14-Point Schedule Metrics, the number of each type of the four relationships (Finish-to-Start [FS], Finish-to-Finish [FF], Start-to-Start [SS], and Start-toFinish [SF]) for incomplete tasks needs to be calculated. This describes which of the following data types? 4.10 pg. 37 of 42 Incomplete Tasks Baseline Count Relationship Count Complete Tasks 17) Which of the following are advantages of network diagrams? (Select three that apply.) 4.4 pg. 71 of 73 Generally useful for information briefings and reviews 10162539 1 10162561 1 10162574 1 10162549 6 Enables early detection of resource constraints Graphically depicts the relationship between project activities/events and their impacts Allows planners to do quick "what if" analyses of changes to the schedule 18) Which task dependency is the most common type of schedule relationship and involves a successor not being able to start until the predecessor finishes? 4.3 PG. 19 of 80 Start-to-Finish (SF) Finish-to-Start (FS) Start-to-Start (SS) Finish-to-Finish (FF) 19) After starting the Schedule Development and Management Process by identifying a comprehensive list of program tasks, assigning identifiers, and including additional information such as potential constraints, what sort of product should the program manager (PM) expect to have? 4.3 pg. 13 of 80 A visual representation of the task list showing the sequencing of each task and the listing of all tasks in a work package A visual representation of the task list showing all available float for each task and the listing of all tasks in a task list A visual representation of the task list showing all resources needed for each task and the listing of all tasks in a control account A visual representation of the task list showing the breakdown of work packages into tasks and the listing of all tasks in a task list 20) What are the first three steps in the process for building a Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM) schedule? 4.5 Estimate task durations, determine resource requirements, sequence the tasks 10162525 1 10162529 1 10162579 1 Sequence the tasks, identify the tasks, estimate task durations Identify the tasks, sequence the tasks, determine resource requirements Determine resource requirements, estimate task durations, identify the tasks 21) The summary schedule is generally associated with levels 1-3 of the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), whereas the intermediate schedule is generally associated with which WBS levels? 4.3 pg. 61 of 80 Levels 2-3 Levels 2-5 Levels 3-4 Levels 3-5 10162534 1 [Show More]
