Assessment Overview

This is the second of two assessments for this course and it is based on the case study used in assessment # 1. For this assessment you will develop a project management plan, using a suitable methodology for an approved specific topic,producing a plan to a professional standard that applies estimation techniques and the development of a full planning and scheduling process in a professional software package.

Conditions of Assessment

This is an individual assessment, that you will complete in your learner-managed time, however, your teacher will provide opportunities during class time for clarification, guidance, collaborative working opportunities, and group discussion. While you will work in a group for an aspect of this assignment, this work is assessed individually on your own performance and evidence. All work must be completely your own and all literature used must be referenced appropriately using APA 6th edition. In order to pass this course you must achieve a cumulative grade of at least 50%, across assessment one and two.

Learning Outcome(s) Assessed

3. Critically apply estimation techniques and develop planning and scheduling processes to minimise costs and risks for this project.

Resubmission/Extensions

Please see your course outline for guidelines around resubmission and extensions.

Instructions

To prepare for this assessment you will need to use one of the case studies provided in assessment 1. Your chosen project will need to give you the scope to meet the requirements of this task and must be relevant for an Iwi/Māori organisation.

For this assessmentyou willapply a project management methodology as the basis for your project management plan. Apply estimation techniques and develop planning and scheduling processes to minimise costs and risks for this project. Develop a project management plan based on your findings above.

Appendix 1

  1. The construction school has been using traditional lab space at OPAIC upto now, but the school is growing fast and we want to put in a purpose built space on level 8. This will include a fabrications lab with the use of 3d printing technology as well as a traditional learning space for upto 30 students. Sustainable building practices and ‘green building’ principles are to be used and construction is only allowed in the OPAIC holiday periods. The building is owned by an Iwi/Maori organisation which will need consideration.
  2. The development of an online project simulation game for the Project Management course. To include a project simulation to build a skyscraper in central Auckland including the ability to access the site by a class project team of 3 individuals and a lecturer. It also needs to include real time chat utility as well as videoconferencing porta for collaboration. You will need to include security that works for multiple users and provide online training as part of the project. There also needs to be a repository for past game learning and a page to guide Iwi/Maori inclusion.
  3. Collaboration is an important part of the OPAIC philosophy, and as such the academic staff at all campuses will get together in one of the 2019 term breaks for a 2 day conference to discuss existing and new programs. OPAIC wish to run this event at its Dunedin site. The 2-day event will enable all the schools of study to have separate planning sessions and to come together for sessional talks, including best practice in Iwi/Maori incorporation. On the second evening in order to close the conference a formal dinner is to be provided in Dunedin at a conference venue outside of OPAIC with speeches from OPAIC leadership.
  4. The re-design of the 2nd level of OPAIC into a suite of computer laboratories each with the ability to house classes of upto 30 students including the ability to house computers inside or under tables to create flexible learning spaces. Presentation standards for the lecturer in each room to follow OPAIC standards for presentation spaces. The building is owned by an Iwi/Maori organisation which will need consideration.
