You are leading a project to design a high-efficiency solar cell. The project needs copper, silver, and silicon among other materials. You have ordered custom-built manufacturing equipment, secured permission to install a solar array on the roof for testing, and reserved a conference room for daily stand-up meetings.

What is the result of your efforts?

A. Resource histogram
B. Resource management plan
C. Resource assignment matrix
D. Physical resource assignments

HINT: What output of the Acquire Resources process describes the physical resources reserved for the project?

Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is D.

Details for each option:

A. Incorrect. Resource histogram is a bar chart showing the amount of time that a resource is scheduled to work over a series of time periods. The question does not describe any type of chart being produced.

B. Incorrect. The resource management plan provides guidance on how project resources should be categorized, allocated, managed, and released. The question describes the process of acquiring project resources. The resource management plan is used as an input into the Acquire Resources process and is not an output as implied in the question.

C. Incorrect. 'Resource assignment matrix' is a fake term made up for this question.

D. Correct. Documentation of the physical resource assignments records the material, equipment, supplies, locations, and other physical resources that will be used during the project.
