Due to government directives, it is mandatory tofor the company to either close the old Roller Coaster or revamp the same as per the newdirectives. This paper has focused towards the same in detail.Question #1a: Project Priority MatrixBased on the CEO’s direction, the project priority matrix has been developed as follows:TimeScopeCostConstrainXEnhanceXAcceptXThe points below explain the identification of priority matrix in above given pattern:Time is needed to be enhanced because there are some resources which are not allocatedin a proper manner. As the time is limited for the project because it is going to belaunched on 30 Dec 2016. So, time can be enhanced by the management.Scope is constrain because if all requirements of the government is not fulfilled in anappropriate manner than the government will not approve SWL to open Roller Coasterfor customers.Cost is acceptable because if the cost is reasonable by the management.Question #1b: Cost Estimation ApproachMentioned below are the four relevant conditions in deciding to use the Top-down or Bottom upEstimate approach for estimating the project cost:Cost and Time ImportantFor condition on “Cost and Time”, Bottom-up Estimates is preferred because managed rarelyhold information about the projects with which they are less acquainted with. This is the case forthe RCS Project as the management has no understanding of the cost and time that will beincurred on the activities. Hence SWL shall use Bottom-up Estimate under this condition.
