Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course examines fundamental modern techniques of project management from a systems perspective, including project planning, organization, and control. Project management identifies, plans and coordinates activities required in order to deliver a satisfactory system, product, or service of appropriate quality, within the constraints of schedule, budget, resources, infrastructure, available staffing and technology. Topics include the management process, risk management, scheduling methodologies, management of project activities, and project control mechanisms. Complex systems are addressed at larger scales including combinations of novel, evolving, and legacy systems, implementing adaptive strategies and approaches. Case studies are used to examine application of principles. Complex system management, risk analysis and mitigation, integrated product and process development, quality management, and contracting are addressed. Complex system management also includes consideration of multiple disciplines, varying scales, uncertainty, and nonlinearity. Covers application of fundamental project management processes from traditional systems to more complex systems.

When Offered Fall.

  • Develop project management plans, processes and approaches and use appropriate tools for traditional and complex systems to control and monitor project management-related tasks.
  • Explain project management organizations tailored to appropriate levels applying different types of approaches.
