Executive Summary

The objective of this report is to determine the current and future maintenance requirements of the valet department of The Four Seasons Sydney hotel. Under the authorisation of Four Seasons’ General Manager, Mr. Vincent Hoogewijs, this report was carried out on the 2nd of July 2012.

The process of conducting the report involved designing a FCA form using academic and industry literature as guidance to match the functions of the chosen area of the property. The FCA form found the valet department is in ‘1-excellent condition’ although some aspects of valet housekeeping (mechanical and structural) were ranked lower at ‘2- minor damage/cosmetic’.

Recommendations have been provided for both facility/engineering and general management to assist respectively in taking corrective measure to minimise and where possible eliminate the present issues that require maintenance. Table of Contents

The Hutson Center is located across the street from the legendary Lambeau Field, it was constructed in 1994 at a cost an estimated $4.7 million. The space has since been renovated and some technological advancements have been made inside of the structure to help the overall functionality of the facility for the Green Bay Packers. Following are a list of questions that was asked/answered by Bryan Nehring who works in Facilities/Equipment for the Green Bay Packers and has been there for 20+ years. His experience with the practice facilities and seeing the current facility evolve to what it is now was a great resource. Who was Don Hutson? The center is named after Don Hutson, who played for the Packers from 1935 to 1945. Hutson is a member of both the Pro Football and Packers Hall of Fame. The Don Hutson Center is the largest element of the Packers' practice facility, which is broken into two other fields; Ray Nitschke Field and Clarke Hinkle Field. What is the Facility Design? There are two practice fields inside the Don Hutson Center, a 70-yard field runs East & West, with another 60-yard field running North & South.

Cases and Readings A case appropriate to the subject of this chapter is: Harvard: 9-613-021 Arrow Diagramming Exercise This 3-page case describes the marketing campaign for a newly developed industrial hardware item. Over two-dozen activities are noted and described. The case asks for the network diagram and critical path. A reading appropriate to the subject of this chapter is: L.P. Leach. Critical Chain Project Management Improves Project Performance (Project Management Journal, June 1999, p. 39-51). This article explains the procedures developed by E. Goldratt in his Critical Chain approach to project management. Includes a discussion of project and feeder buffers. Projects using the critical chain often report significantly improved schedule, cost, and scope performance. Answers to Review Questions 1. How would a PM manager critical path tasks differently than noncritical tasks? By definition, critical tasks are those tasks that if delayed will delay the completion of the entire project. Therefore, these tasks should be managed more closely than non-critical tasks. In cases where the activity times are not known with certainty, the tasks assumed to be critical at the beginning of the project may turn out not to be so critical. Therefore, when tasks times are uncertain, all tasks that may reasonably delay project completion must be carefully managed. 2. How is slack determined? Slack for a particular......
