American Constructors Inc.: World Outreach Expansion Project Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

The project manager for American Constructors Inc. (ACI) sat down with his team on September 24, 2009, to evaluate the progress of their building expansion project in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The team had been working on the World Outreach Church expansion job for more than a year already and it was fast approaching completion.  Initially scheduled for completion by March 2010, the project deadline was pushed ahead at the request of the client, who wanted to make use of the property for the Christmas season, to December 14, 2009. In an effort to maintain the name of ACI, which had grown to be known as middle Tennessee's premier contractor, the project manager and his team needed to determine if the December 14 deadline was possible. This instance was designed for use in MBA operations management or an undergraduate or project management course that was opening. Developed to aid instructors in facilitating discussions of key project management concepts, the case content allows for an analytic approach to covering the basic skills in planning a job, including precedence relationship, critical path, due dates, doubt (PERT tasks), crashing, etc. It might be utilized to teach pupils the use of MS Project or other project management software. It can also be utilized for a analytic, more managerial discussion of project management.
