Project Management Simulation
Read the description of the two simulation options in the Module 8 folder. Now is the time to select the option you prefer to complete for your final Portfolio Project. Do not do both assignments.

Option #1: Scope, Resources, Schedule #1

Week 4: Complete Scenario A
Week 6: Complete Scenario B
Week 8: Complete Scenario D

Option #2: Scope, Resources, Schedule #2

Week 4: Complete Scenario A
Week 6: Complete Scenario C
Week 8: Complete Scenario E

To make your decision, go to the Project Management Simulation: Scope, Resources, Schedule V2 (Links to an external site.) at Harvard Business Publishing online. Once you have signed on and registered, you will be able to view the “Prepare” section to read about the project management process at Delphi Printers and learn how to perform the simulation.
Please upload a word document or a proper note in the submission area to identify the option you have selected so that you can be set up to access the scenario-specific information for the option you selected.

Choose one of the following two assignments to complete this week. Do not do both assignments. Identify your assignment choice in the title of your submission.
Option #1: Project Management Simulation #1
Use the simulation tool, Project Management Simulation: Scope, Resources, Schedule V2 (Links to an external site.) (Product #: 4700-HTM-ENG), to complete this assignment.
For Option #1, complete the following:

Week 4: Complete Scenario A
Week 6: Complete Scenario B
Week 8: Complete Scenario D

Part 1: Simulation

Your Role. Senior Project Manager at Delphi Printers & Peripherals, a small electronics and computer peripheral manufacturer.
Your Task. You assemble and direct a product design team to develop a new and innovative consumer printer. Delphi has intelligence suggesting that a competitor is launching a printer with similar features and capabilities in six months, putting pressure on you and your team to develop a new printer that can compete effectively against the competitor’s offering.

You will benefit from playing the simulation multiple times using different scenarios to experience various project challenges. The scenarios you can work on include:
Scenario A Easily achievable targets, with even weighting between objectives. Scenario B Project has staffing crisis mid-project. Project will lose up to 3 staff members and be unable to hire for 2 weeks. Scenario C Competitor issues surprise announcement mid-project. Schedule target will move up and points for schedule will increase. Scenario D Very difficult management targets, with points weighted towards schedule compliance. Scenario E Very difficult management targets. with points weighted towards scope compliance.

Simulation Goals. Successful completion of the project. Success is rated on the following metrics:

Scope
Schedule
Resources (cost)
Team process (morale and stress).

Simulation Timeline. The simulation will continue until you either complete the project successfully or decide to end it prematurely.

During Weeks 4, 6, and 8, perform the simulation multiple times and try changing input parameters to obtain a better score and complete the scenario with better results. In doing so, you will benefit from running the sessions using different options and trying different action items to experience various project challenges. After completing the simulation session, save a screen shot of the confirmation page showing your total score.
Part 2: Written Assignment
Write a two- to three-page paper describing the scenario you completed this week, the intent of the simulation, and your lessons learned. Identify a minimum of four what-if assessments that resulted in obtaining a better score and completing the scenario with better results. Use scholarly resources to support your findings.
Be sure to organize your writing properly and include the following:

Cover page
Introduction
Body of your work with headings and subheadings
Analysis and recommendations
Conclusion
List of references
Appendix A – Screen shot of confirmation page showing your best simulation score.

Consult the Sample Paper template (Links to an external site.) for more information on how to organize the paper.
Support your assignment with a minimum of three scholarly references. The CSU-Global library is a good place to locate these sources. The written section should follow the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.).
Option #2: Project Management Simulation #2
Use the simulation tool, Project Management Simulation: Scope, Resources, Schedule V2 (Links to an external site.) (Product #: 4700-HTM-ENG), to complete this assignment.
For Option #2, complete the following:

Week 4: Complete Scenario A
Week 6: Complete Scenario C
Week 8: Complete Scenario E
