Oliver 175 - 59th Question

Wed Oct 21, 2015 5:20 pm

59. You recently assigned staff members to activities, estimated work and scheduled your project. You then created the following resource histogram for your staff:

What does this diagram tell you? 59
o The project can probably not be finished as scheduled.
o You may be able to finish the project early by reassigning work.
o You should avoid network logic diagramming for scheduling.
o You may run into problems with dual reporting relationships.

YOU need to look at histogram i m not able to paste ..plz answer .. explain.

Still, since question refers to Resource Histogram, I would go for option
o You may be able to finish the project early by reassigning work.
As resource histogram shows utilization and assignment of resources to various activities and their available bandwidth.

Uploaded the pic, and The project can probably not be finished as scheduled because of over allocation of resource.

That does not seem to be correct option. The right answer is option-1 as you can see overloaded vs available hours which is "Overloaded (more than 10points) Vs Available (little more than 7points) as per the diagram chart. 1 Point is 25% on the vertical scale. Since the remaining work after full allocation is 10-7 = 3 (approx.) which cannot be allocated, the project will be delayed. Hence the option " The project can probably not be finished as scheduled" seems to be the correct answer......Please correct me if i am wrong..experts!
