This Assignment is designed to evaluate your ability to research, organize, and demonstrate project data and financial information pertaining to the development of the feasibility study within the project planning phase. In this Assignment, you will be assessed on the following outcome: Plan cost management with associated resources. Planning is moving right along. You are in the process of pulling together the Cost Management Plan, your definitive cost estimate, the project spend plan and baseline, your human resource management plan, and your procurement management plan. Given the information provided you for your assigned rocket assembly project (See Course Resources): • Construct a definitive cost estimate based on your definitive duration estimate for your assigned rocket assembly project. • Build a project spend plan with a graph of your cost baseline (Cumulative or S-Curve) with your EAC identified for your assigned rocket assembly project. • Ensure that your project documents address the criteria of the rubric below and follows the stated requirements. • GM592 Unit 3 Individual Assignment: 40 Points (0-24 points) 1.

Analysis (9 points) Response exhibits strong higher-order critical thinking and analysis (e.g., evaluation). Paper shows original thought. 3 Analysis includes proper classifications, explanations, comparisons and inferences. 3 Critical thinking includes appropriate judgments, conclusions and assessment based on 3 evaluation and synthesis of information.
