The constraints of the project include:

Availability of resources: If the resources that are needed within the project are not available then the time for the delivery of the resources increases. This generally may also enhance cost of the project

Inappropriate quality: If the quality team found that the quality of the delivered project activities is not appropriate and more resources is needed then cost of the project may enhance. It will also enhance the time of the project.

Scope creep: If scope creep occurs within the project then will generally need more time, cost as well as resources for finishing the project. It further decreases the quality of the project and thus enhances project risk on delivery.

  The assumptions that are made in the construction project are listed below:

  • The architectural design of the barbeque restaurant will be properly designed for constructing the restaurant
  • The construction project will be finished by 2019
  • The construction of barbeque restaurant will be finished with the budget that is around $258,568.00

 Managing the schedule of the project mainly includes various types of steps that are mainly required in order to make sure that the project will be finished within the time that is estimated. It generally involves steps that determine the milestones as well as delivery dates while considering all the known constraints of the project (Mir & Pinnington, 2014).  The detail level that is required is generally proportional to the risk as well as level of uncertainty that is mainly associated with the activities of the project. This generally helps in ensuring that both sequencing as well as estimation of project duration must be done in a much more realistic way.

Project Scope

 The project can be monitored as well as controlled by utilizing techniques that are listed below:

Earned value analysis: Earned value analysis is one of the methods that is utilized for measuring the actual performance of the project of EVM is mainly utilized for monitoring the schedule of the project so that time or cost of the project can be controlled quite easily (Heldman, 2018). 

Performance review: The performance review are generally conducted in order to review the project. This generally helps in accessing both cost and schedule of the project. However, other parameters can also be accessed with the help of performance review (Hornstein, 2015). It not only helps in monitoring the schedule of the project but also plays a great role in controlling it.

Forecasting: The earned value analysis method helps in forecasting the future performance of the entire project. It is found that the forecast is totally dependent on the actual project performance (Josli & Müller, 2015).  Proper forecasting helps in telling whether the project will be finished within the assumed time or not. This technique of project monitoring is used so that if any obstruction is identified that may cause delay in the project can be properly controlled.

 The project schedule reporting is considered as one of the important activity of project management. The reporting of the project performance is mainly done by collecting an update flow of project related information in relation to the construction of barbeque restaurant (Chih & Zwikael, 2015).  The issues and challenges that are related with the implementation of the project must be properly elaborated. The reporting also includes proper monitoring of project schedule so that the team members of the project can be able to get proper information about project status.
