Hello everyone! Here is this week's free PMP® exam sample question from the PM Exam Simulator.

A project manager is leading a project to install a new production line for a consumer goods manufacturing company. With the project nearly complete, the project manager has already performed procurement closure, shared the final project report, updated the lessons learned repository, and obtained feedback from the relevant stakeholders. What should the project manager do next?

A. Provide final payment to the suppliers
B. Send a summary of how the final product achieved the business needs identified in the business plan to relevant stakeholders
C. Transfer the completed assembly line to operations
D. Send formal written notice to the vendors that the contracts have been completed

HINT: All but one of the answer choices represents an activity which has not already been completed in the scenario.

Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is C.

The question implies that the Close Project or Phase process is underway. Actions and activities necessary to transfer the project's products, services, or results to the next phase or to production and/or operations is one aspect of project closure. Correctly answering this question is an exercise in the process of elimination. The incorrect answer choices represent activities that have already been completed by the project manager in this scenario. Of the available choices, only transferring the completed assembly line to operations represents a closing activity which has yet to be completed, making it the best response to the question asked.

Details for Each Option:

A. Provide final payment to the suppliers
Incorrect. The question states that procurement closure has already been completed. Procurements are not considered closed until final payments have been made. Therefore, the final payments must have already been sent to the suppliers in this scenario.

B. Send a summary of how the final product achieved the business needs identified in the business plan to relevant stakeholders
Incorrect. A summary of how the final product achieved the business needs identified in the business plan to relevant stakeholders is a component of the final project report. The question states that the final project report has already been shared, making this action redundant and unnecessary.

C. Transfer the completed assembly line to operations
Correct. Transferring the completed assembly line to operations is an activity which is completed during the Close Project or Phase process. This answer choice represents an activity which remains to be completed in this scenario.

D. Send formal written notice to the vendors that the contracts have been completed
Incorrect. The buyer provides the seller with formal written notice that the contract has been completed as part of procurement closure. The question indicates that the procurements for this project have already been closed. Therefore, this answer choice represents an activity that has already been completed in this scenario.
