#4 | Information Systems homework help



Estimating project budgets is far from an exact science. Many of us have heard of projects running over budget. Why is this? Why do we consistently forecast low? There are many reasons for this inconsistency, including everything from improper funding at the beginning of the project to taking shortcuts that should never have been taken. Whatever the reason, there is a need for project managers and their teams to become better at forecasting technology costs.

For this assessment, you will complete the Cost Budget Template (linked in the Resources under the Required Resources heading), update your project schedule in Microsoft Project, and update the Cost Estimate / Schedule Update section of the Project Management Plan Template.


Based on the information from Assessment 3, the Project Management Plan Template, and your WBS, provide a complete budget using the Cost Budget Template. Also update the project schedule in Microsoft Project.

For the budget estimate:

  • Identify the following:
    • The costs of each task.
    • The time frames within which the costs will be incurred.
  • Prepare a cost estimate for the project using the Cost Budget Template.
  • Prepare a budget for the project using the cost estimate.
