Project #21300 - Microsoft Project

Week 3 Tutorial 3 Weekly Introduction 

Creating a Project Schedule and Creating Calendars and Scheduling Tasks and 

Durations for the Project 


Simulation for this week: 

ViewPoint Partners Tutorial 1 introduced you to project management terminology and 

the Project 2010 user interface. In addition, you established the project goal, which is to 

install the equipment and software for the company’s five AV presentation rooms within 

a time frame of three months and within a budget of $100,000. Meeting the project goal 

will determine the success of the project. Now you are ready to use your knowledge 

about Project 2010 as the project manager at ViewPoint Partners. You have to define 

the specific tasks, durations, milestones, constraints, and dependencies that are 

appropriate for the installation of AV presentation rooms at ViewPoint Partners. 

Although you will continue to work closely with Emily, the technology specialist, Sidney 

wants you to start creating the project file and manage the installation. You start by 

entering the details of this project into Project 2010. 


The following is an overview of Session 2.1: Please refer to Pages PRJ60 to 

PRJ61 for a visual of the following information. 

You use the Change Working Time dialog box to change the project calendar. It is 

located in Project Tab, Properties, Change Working Time icon. 


Any changes will be based on the Standard (Project Calendar). The Standard (Project 

Calendar) is the default calendar used to schedule tasks within a project that specifies 

Monday through Friday as working days with eight hours of work completed each day, 

and Saturday and Sunday as nonworking days. The calendar is located in the Change Working Time Dialog Box. You use the exceptions tab for exceptions and the Work 

Weeks tab to change hours for work weeks. 


The row selector is used to select all columns for the task. 


You click the Create New Calendar button to create a task calendar for any task that 

does not follow the times specified by the project calendar. You set details for Summer 

hours by clicking on the Details button. 


The following is an overview of Session 2.2: Please refer to PRJ98-PRJ99 for a 

visual of the following information: 

You use the WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) button to open the WBS Code 

Definition dialog box or to renumber existing WBS codes. The WBS button is located in 

the Project tab in Properties group. The WBS column shows the WBS code. The WBS 

(work breakdown structure) code is an alphanumeric code used to represent each 

task’s position within the hierarchical structure of the project. 

The Project Summary Task bar summarizes the timeline of your project. On the other 

hand, Summary task bars represent all subtask information. 

The Predecessors column located after the Finish Column displays information for each 

linked task. 

An FS link means the first task must finish before the second task starts. An FS (finish 

to start) link with a -2d lag—the second task can start 2 days before the previous task 


An SS (start to start) link with a 50% lag means the first task must start before the 

second task can start. The positive lag delays the second task by 50% of the duration.
