Do the statistics imply or identify any

Create a presentation for a project manager
based on the assigned case study that reports the project’s performance, including any current or potential deficiencies that you have identified, as well as your
recommendations for improving project performance.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed. Use presentation notes (“speaker notes”) to articulate those points that are not observable in the
presentation:
A. Explain the use of EVM statistics for identifying potential project performance deficiencies.
B. Interpret the EVM statistics calculated for the project in the case study in terms of current or potential deficiencies. Do the statistics imply or identify any
deficiencies? If so, what are they? Be sure to support your reasoning with research.
C. Discuss the role of EVM principles in achieving integrated cost and schedule control. Be sure to substantiate your claims with research.
D. Interpret the EVM statistics calculated for the project in the case study. Do they lend themselves to the successful integration of cost and schedule
control for this project? Be sure to cite research to justify your position.
E. Make appropriate recommendations for improving integrated cost and schedule control for the project in the case study. Be sure to use research to
justify your recommendations.

I messed up with our last question on choosing a topic and you will need to submit research paper topic for approval by no later than the end of third week.

I messed up with our last question on choosing a topic and You will need to submit research paper topic for approval by no later than the end of third week. You have considerable freedom in choosing a topic, with the exception of the topic must apply directly to this class. The requirement is that you choose a topic that requires academic research not business research and that you submit both your paper topic (which should not contain a question) and a full paragraph statement, that statement must contain a research question to be answered or a hypothesis to be tested. Most “why” questions focus more on workplace related issues and business not academic or scholarly research so they seldom are acceptable questions for scholarly research. >>>>>>>>>>>
the tropic for air industry is my topic for next week’s essay not the final essay. So you can pick any topic within transportation management.

Fleming and koppelman describe six key events that accompany procurements on projects.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a supply chain discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Fleming and Koppelman describe six key events that accompany procurements on projects. They are the following:
The project manager must define the items to be procured. This is usually done by conducting a “make or buy” analysis, typically under the direction of the project manager, or staff.
They must define the technical requirements of the purchases. This is done by the engineering or design organizations and results in a procurement specification.
They must request that a procurement be made by issuing a formal purchase requisition, which is normally done by the project manager, or staff.
A formal order to buy must be given by the buyer, who issues a contract or purchase order.
The purchased items must be received, inspected, accepted, or the purchased services verified. This consists of taking physical possession of the commodities and/or of verifying their satisfactory completion. Various functions perform this work.
Payment must be made for the purchased goods. The accounts payable organization must issue a check to the seller, and the costs recorded on the accounting ledger.
Considering ONE of these events, describe the implications for EVM. How can the work described in this event be separated into distinct tasks? How can task completion be estimated in terms of costs? In terms of earned value?
