not do both assignments. Identify your assignment choice in the title
of your submission.

Option #1: Project Management Simulation #1

Use the simulation tool, Project Management Simulation: Scope, Resources, Schedule V2 (Links to an external site.) (Product #: 4700-HTM-ENG), to complete this assignment.

For Option #1, complete the following:

  • Week 4: Complete Scenario A
  • Week 6: Complete Scenario B
  • Week 8: Complete Scenario D

Part 1: Simulation

  • Your Role. Senior Project Manager at Delphi Printers & Peripherals, a small electronics and computer peripheral manufacturer.
  • Your Task. You assemble and direct a product design
    team to develop a new and innovative consumer printer. Delphi has
    intelligence suggesting that a competitor is launching a printer with
    similar features and capabilities in six months, putting pressure on you
    and your team to develop a new printer that can compete effectively
    against the competitor’s offering.

You will benefit from playing the simulation multiple times using
different scenarios to experience various project challenges. The
scenarios you can work on include:

Scenario A Easily achievable targets, with even weighting between objectives.
Scenario B Project has staffing crisis mid-project. Project will lose up to 3 staff members and be unable to hire for 2 weeks.
Scenario C Competitor issues surprise announcement mid-project. Schedule target will move up and points for schedule will increase.
Scenario D Very difficult management targets, with points weighted towards schedule compliance.
Scenario E Very difficult management targets. with points weighted towards scope compliance.

  • Simulation Goals. Successful completion of the project. Success is rated on the following metrics:

    • Scope
    • Schedule
    • Resources (cost)
    • Team process (morale and stress).
  • Simulation Timeline. The simulation will continue until you either complete the project successfully or decide to end it prematurely.

During Weeks 4, 6, and 8, perform the simulation multiple times and
try changing input parameters to obtain a better score and complete the
scenario with better results. In doing so, you will benefit from running
the sessions using different options and trying different action items
to experience various project challenges. After completing the
simulation session, save a screen shot of the confirmation page showing
your total score.

Part 2: Written Assignment

Write a two- to three-page paper describing the scenario you
completed this week, the intent of the simulation, and your lessons
learned. Identify a minimum of four what-if assessments that resulted in
obtaining a better score and completing the scenario with better
results. Use scholarly resources to support your findings.

Be sure to organize your writing properly and include the following:

  • Cover page
  • Introduction
  • Body of your work with headings and subheadings
  • Analysis and recommendations
  • Conclusion
  • List of references
  • Appendix A – Screen shot of confirmation page showing your best simulation score.

Consult the Sample Paper template (Links to an external site.) for more information on how to organize the paper.

Support your assignment with a minimum of three scholarly references.
The CSU-Global library is a good place to locate these sources. The
