Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Part IV of the PSP Exam is a real-time Communications Exercise. It requires the candidate to write the equivalent of a one-page typewritten memorandum to simulate reporting on planning and scheduling analysis to a project manager, explaining the issues and proposing a solution regarding a given problem.

I am looking for samples of this type of reports/memos. Does anyone know a website where I can find samples of this type of reports/memos? I couldn’t find samples on AACE’s website. I would also appreciate if someone wants to share one from your own.

The purpose of Part Iv is to demonstrate you have the capabiliteis to commmunicate planning and scheduling issues yourself, not copy  existing questions and answerthem. This is one the main reasons why the PSP certification requires a level of experience, not just merely studying a gudebook.

I think U cannot find the site.
The purposes part IV is: We can communicate the problem or issue "what happens in project."
After that we must analys situasion. and we must give alternative solution also corrective action.
Use your word!
