Why Schedule compression do next?

Postby Wally123 Thu Apr 20, 2017 1:25 pm

A new product development project has four levels in the work breakdown structure and has been sequenced using the precedence diagramming method. The activity duration estimates have been received. What should be done NEXT?

A. Create an activity list
B. Begin the work breakdown structure
C. Finalize the schedule
D. Compress the schedule

I have chosen C, but the answer is D. Why?

To answer this question one needs to know the 47 processes for time knowledge area they are...the question is speaking to the planning process group, compression is a tool and technique done during the executing and M&C process

Plan Schedule Management---Planning
Defined Activities---Planning
Sequence Act---Planning --which the question mentions
Est Act Resource---Planning ---which is already done though the question does not specifically mentions it
Est Act Duration--Planning --which the question mentions and comes after Est Resources (the qualification or experience of the resource will determine the duration---also note that sequence, est resource and duration may occur concurrently, as well as est act cost)
Dev. Schedule--Planning

So the right answer will be Develop project schedule (C)---I think

I think finalize schedule (Develop schedule) option 3 is the right answer. Schedule Compression is the tools and technique of developing schedule. I think we have develop rough schedule and do the schedule compression as
an iterative process as to adjust.
