You are required to:
Develop a Gantt Chart for the project based on Table 3: Activity List for IBIS Project. You shall show the columns for Activities, Duration, Start Date, Finish Date and Predecessor and the Gantt Chart.
Determine the project duration, completion date and list the activities on the critical path.
Note: There is no need to group the activities by WBS in developing this Gantt Chart. You are to use Microsoft Project to work out and present the Gantt Chart. Any other format presented will results in mark reduction. You have to show the Gantt Chart on the report instead of referring the marker to an embedded file.
Section B: Managing Project Risk

(a) Evaluatethree (3) potential risks, one from each category of: External, Organisational and Project Management, by designing a Risk Assessment Matrix. You shall present your answer in the format of Table 4 shown below.
Use rating of 0 to 5 for Likelihood, Impact and Detection Difficulty.
Likelihood: 0 – Not likely to happen at all; 5 – very likely to happen
Impact: 0- No impact on project; 5 – very high impact on project
Detection Difficulty – 0 – very easy to be detected; 5 – impossible to be detected.
|Table 4: Risk Assessment Matrix|
|Risk (Category stated. You have to describe the risk)||Con-sequence||Like-lihood (L)||Impact (I)||Detect
|Risk Value, R=LxIxD||Comment on the risk and its risk value|
You shall present your answer in the format of Table 5
|Table 5: Risk Response Plan Risk identified in Q 7(a)||Response||Contingency Plan||Tigger||Who is responsible|
|External: Risk 1|
|Organisational: Risk 2|
|Project Management: Risk 3|
