* Allocate Resources and Create Timelines with TeamManager and Project

Develop a SOW for ACME Books
Utilizing the business methodologies and technological paradigms shown in the Discuss section of Module 0, students should create their own SOW for ACME Books. The sample SOW in the demonstrate section may be used as a rough draft to be expanded upon, or it a new one may be created.

This SOW should be created and presented in the form of a bid proposal to ACME Books. It should include a purpose, schedule of completion dates, and a set of deliverables.

Develop a Set of Tasks and a Baseline Schedule
Now that you have a SOW, the team needs to fully expand the baseline set of tasks and schedule in more detail. A series of core tasks should be identified. Each of these tasks will be a separate project with an associated timeline.

This information should be tracked through TeamManager and Project.

Allocate Resources and Create Timelines Using Team Manager and Project
Once you have identified the core tasks as mentioned above, enter them into TeamManager and allocate the appropriate resources. For any core tasks which need to begin immediate development, create a project in Microsoft Project and begin to organize the lower level tasks involved in completing each core task. Make sure to create a timeline you can live with and pay special attention to how your resources are being allotted.
