The start date for the project is 12 October. All Saturdays and Sundays are non-working days. Calculate the Saturdays and Sundays on the basis of the current calendar year. Additionally, the following are non-working days:

  • 30 November
  • 25 December
  • 28 December
  • 1 January
  • 4 January
  • 17 March
  • 2 April
  • 5 April
  • 3 May
  • 31 May
  • 12 July

At the close of the client feedback session (task 8), the head of the sales department wants some changes to be made, and as such, makes a formal change request that day. It takes 14 working days for the change request to be approved.

An analysis of the impact of the change reveals the following:

  • Changes to the database module will require 5 days.
  • Testing of the new database module will take 5 days following the changes.
  • Changes to the support modules will require 7 additional days of work.
  • Changes to the high-level functions will require 10 additional days of work.
