    B. Working out the necessary resource requirements.
    C. Defining each task's objectives.
    D. Determining a set of performance measures to evaluate progress.
    Explanation
    Correct planning involves several activities that need to be carefully considered before implementing a project. These activities include working out the necessary resource requirements, defining each task's objectives, and determining a set of performance measures to evaluate progress. By working out the necessary resource requirements, the planner ensures that all the required resources, such as manpower, materials, and equipment, are available for the project. Defining each task's objectives helps in setting clear goals and expectations for each task. Determining a set of performance measures allows the planner to track and evaluate the progress of the project against predefined criteria.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The main project parameters that need to be defined beforehand in order to complete activities involve quality planning, time planning, and expense planning. This means that before starting any project, it is necessary to plan for the quality standards that need to be met, the time required to complete the project, and the expenses that will be incurred. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Part of quality planning is to ______ the order of tasks into a sequence which best fits the project's progress.

    • A.

      Prioritise

    • B.

      Allocate

    • C.

      Provide

    Correct Answer
    A. Prioritise
    Explanation
    Quality planning involves determining the order in which tasks should be completed to ensure the smooth progress of a project. This process is known as prioritization. By prioritizing tasks, the project team can identify the most important and critical activities that need to be completed first, allowing for efficient resource allocation and timely completion of the project.

    When planning for time, the following considerations must be taken into account:-  (Select Three)

    • A.

      The duration or time that should be spent on each step.

    • B.

      The earliest time when a task should start.

    • C.

      The latest time a task should start.

    • D.

      Guessing and estimating the start and completion dates.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The duration or time that should be spent on each step.
    B. The earliest time when a task should start.
    C. The latest time a task should start.
    Explanation
    When planning for time, it is important to consider the duration or time that should be spent on each step. This helps in allocating the appropriate amount of time for each task and ensures that the project stays on schedule. Additionally, the earliest time when a task should start is crucial as it helps in determining the sequence of tasks and identifying any dependencies. Similarly, the latest time a task should start is important to avoid delays and ensure that the project is completed within the desired timeframe.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Events and activities are therefore the non- actions of a project, while non-activities symbolise actions and link dependencies between two actions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement in the question is incorrect. In project management, events and activities are considered as actions, not non-actions. Events are specific occurrences that mark important points in a project, while activities are the tasks or actions that need to be completed to achieve project objectives. Non-activities, on the other hand, do not represent actions and are not used to establish dependencies between actions. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    A PERT Chart is created by the following steps:   (Select Six)

    • A.

      Estimating the time required for each step.

    • B.

      Remembering that the length of the line arrow joining activities indicates the time required.

    • C.

      Linking the activities by non-activity lines.

    • D.

      Numbering each task in order of priority.

    • E.

      Where task dates can be flexible, then drawing a dotted line to show the leeway start and end dates.

    • F.

      Drawing separate paths for steps that are undertaken at the same time.

    • G.

      Remembering that the length of the line arrow joining activities indicates the time required.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Estimating the time required for each step.
    B. Remembering that the length of the line arrow joining activities indicates the time required.
    C. Linking the activities by non-activity lines.
    D. Numbering each task in order of priority.
    F. Drawing separate paths for steps that are undertaken at the same time.
    G. Remembering that the length of the line arrow joining activities indicates the time required.
    Explanation
    A PERT Chart is created by estimating the time required for each step, linking the activities by non-activity lines, numbering each task in order of priority, drawing separate paths for steps that are undertaken at the same time, and remembering that the length of the line arrow joining activities indicates the time required. The chart also includes drawing a dotted line to show the leeway start and end dates for tasks where flexibility is allowed.

    Once the project has been planned by detailing its quality, costs and time, then the project can be implemented.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Once the project has been planned by detailing its quality, costs, and time, it is logical to proceed with its implementation. Planning is an essential step in project management as it allows for a clear understanding of the project's objectives, resources needed, and potential risks. By detailing quality, costs, and time during the planning phase, the project team can effectively allocate resources, set realistic timelines, and ensure that the project meets the desired quality standards. Therefore, it is true that once the project has been planned, it can be implemented.
