Case Approach

Scientific Methodology

We use best scientific approach to solve case study as recommended and designed by best professors and experts in the World. The approach followed by our experts are given below:

Defining Problem

The first step in solving any case study analysis is to define its problem carefully. In order to do this step, our experts read the case two three times so as to define problem carefully and accurately. This step acts as a base and help in building the structure in next steps.

Structure Definition

The second step is to define structure to solve the case. Different cases has different requirements and so as the structure. Our experts understand this and follow student;s university guidelines to come out with best structure so that student will receive best mark for the same.

Research and Analysis

This is the most important step which actually defines the strength of any case analysis. In order to provide best case analysis, our experts not only refer case materials but also outside materials if required to come out with best analysis for the case.

Conclusion & Recommendations

A weak conclusion or recommendations spoil the entire case analysis. Our expert know this and always provide good chunks of volume for this part so that instructors will see the effort put by students in arriving at solution so as to provide best mark.

  1. Develop the WBS outline using the software available (save your file).
  2. Use this file and the information provided blow to create a project schedule.

  4. The following holidays are observed: January 1, Martin Luther King Day (third Monday in January) Memorial Day (last Monday in May) , July 4th, Labor Day (First Monday in September), Thanksgiving Day (4th Thursday in November), December 25, and December 26.

  6. If a holiday falls on a Saturday then Friday will be given as an extra day off, and if it falls on a Sunday then Monday will be given off.
  7. The project will begin on January 3, 2012

  9. Based on this schedule, submit a memo that answers the following questions:
  10. When is the project estimated to be completed? How many working days will it take?

  12. What is the critical path?
  13. Which activity has the most total slack?

  15. How sensitive is this network?
  16. Identify two sensible milestones and explain your choice.


Include the following (one page) printouts.

  1. A Gannt Chart.
  2. A network diagram highlighting the critical path.
  3. A schedule table reporting ES, LS, EF, LF, and the slack for each activity


Hints: Change the timescale to months and weeks. The estimated duration of the project is 135 days.



The following information has been derived from the WBS.

  1. Which if any of the resources are overallocated?
  2. Assume that the project is time constrained and try to resolve any overatllocation problems by leveling within slack. What happens?

  4. What is the impact of leveling within slack on the sensitivity of the network?
    1. Include a Gannt Chart with the schedule table after leveling within slack.
  5. Assume the project is resource constrained and resolve any overallocation problems by leveling outside of slack. What happens?

    1. Include a Gannt chart with the schedule table after leveling outside of slack.


  6. Note No splitting of activities is allowed.
  7. Note: No partial assignments (e.g. 50%) All resources must be assigned 100%.
