Conveyor Belt MS Project Exercise.

Conveyor Belt MS Project

Conveyor Project- Part 1

Project Description

The new computer-controlled conveyor belt is an exciting project that moves and positions items on the conveyor belt within < J millimeter. The project will produce a new system for future installations, and for replacement of those in the field, at a low cost. The computer-controlled conveyor belt has the potential to be a critical unit in 30 percent of the systems installed in factories. The new system is also easier to update with future technologies. The Project Priority Matrix for the Conveyor Belt Project (CBP) is:

  Time Scope Cost

Part 1

Develop WBS outline using the software Project

  1. Does the information (WBS) allow you to define any milestones of the project? Why or why not? What are they?

WBS enables me to set project milestones based on the hardware, operating system, utilities, and system integration components of the project. The hardware is the first milestone, followed by the operating system, utilities, and lastly, system integration.
