NOTE: This case assignment will require you to use Microsoft Project®. You should work through the Microsoft Project® Tutorial 3 before beginning this case assignment.

To save time and money, you have decided to outsource the testing of the MAA School Management System to another organization called TestIt4U. This company specializes in product testing and is located in another country. Moreover, you have signed a contract and sent them a copy of your software system to fulfill their end of the contract. However, you have asked TestIt4U for a WBS and to update you on their progress during the testing phase.

  1. The following table was received from TestIt4U. Using this information, create a WBS inMicrosoft Project®. You can be creative (i.e., use your own style) in developing the WBS, just be sure that all of the information is entered accurately. The cost of Resource A is $20.00 an hour and the cost of Resource B is $25.00 an hour. All the task activities are sequential—i.e., finish-to-start. Testing or the project start date will begin on January 3rd of next year.
