ITEC 640Mid-Term Examination
In submitting your response to this examination, you are attesting that the
response is your own work and that data, ideas, words, diagrams, pictures, or
other information from any source are cited fully and completely.
Please notice that all the questions on this exam relate to hypothetical projects.
Do not use your Course Project as your hypothetical project scenario for this exam.
1. (50%) –Project Management Plan and the Work Breakdown Structure
Part a–PMP Content
Describe a hypothetical project scenario of your choice and then list and defend
which management processes you would include in your PMP. Depending on
The project, some processes may be more important than others.
One project process is making structured decisions. This could be a technical
trade study, selection of key supplier, an architectural trade-off, or any number
of critical decisions that will impact the technical aspects of the project. Discuss one
such decision on your project and the criteria that should be used to help make a
Develop an outline of the work breakdown structure (WBS) for the project
described in Part a. This WBS need not be exhaustive in terms of work items
or complete in terms of management details, such as timeframes and timelines.
Focus on and identify only the key elements of the WBS. Defend your choice of
WBS style (product centric, work centric, or hybrid/other).
For parts 1a and 1b, try to limit your response to two pages or less.
2. (50%) –Technical Considerations
Part a–Solution Architecture
For the project identified in Part 1a, describe and/or diagram the high level solution
architecture (components, behavior of the components, and how the components
interact). If your project is a service rather than a product, describe the components
of the service (i.e., Help Desk, software provisioning, etc.).
Part b–PMP Technical Considerations
Assume that the technical aspects of your program (requirements, architecture,
design, test cases, etc.) are captured separate from the PMP in either a modeling
tool such as System Architect or in project deliverables such as design documents.
Given the unique aspects of your solution, describe technical process considerations
that you would include in your PMP and explain why they should be included. For
example, you may have additional activities, forums, mechanisms, interactions, etc.
that you would want to describe in your PMP. You need not provide details about
those considerations; provide only a list along with your rationale for why they must
be included and expanded upon in the PMP.
For parts 2a and 2b, try to limit your response to two pages or less.
