Scope
The following project plan outlines the problems and solution details that our team will be working towards achieving for the three case studies. We will make the time and cost calculation for those cases and find the answers for relative questions. All results and interpretations will be included in a final report. All the work will be completed by our team through online

discussion. We will discuss the three cases one by one, as in the following order:
Case 1: Database for Modesto Nuts minor league baseball team Case 2: A network plan study
Case 3: A cost-time graph study

Introduction
The project plan here will be the brief introduction for all three cases and relative questions:
Case 1: Database for Modesto Nuts minor league baseball team We are developing a customer database for the Modesto Nuts minor league baseball team and development activities with predecessor relations are given. We will draw the project network and calculate the time parameters including activity slack. After the calculation done, we will analyze those parameters to check how long will this project take and whether the project schedule is sensitive or not?

Case 2: A network plan study
In this case, a network plan will be given. And based on that, firstly, we finish the time calculation and get the project duration. Secondly we will develop a loading chart for resources Carpenters and Electricians. Thirdly we finish the resource activity schedule. Finally by analyzing the resource activity schedule, we figure out the critical activity and adjust the project duration accordingly.

Case 3: A cost-time graph study
In this case the time and cost data of the project activities will be given, with an initial cost-time graph. We will finish the calculation of the total direct, indirect and project cost for each duration. After that, we will work out the optimum cost-time schedule for the project and get the final cost.
