  29. Construction Phases & Class Topics FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS DEVELOP- MENT DIVESTMENT OPERATIONS CLOSEOUT DESIGN PROJECT MANAGEMENT

  30. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out

  31. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out Resource Scheduling Simulation Basics of Project Monitoring and Control Changes and Claims Earned Value Analysis Quality Reviews and Audits

  32. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out Resource Scheduling Simulation Basics of Project Monitoring and Control Changes and Claims Earned Value Analysis Quality Reviews and Audits • Resource Scheduling • - How to allocate resources ($, time, etc.) to execute a given task efficiently • Trade offs between conflicting/competing resources • Tools: graphical analyses, programming (linear, integer, heuristic, etc.)

  33. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out Resource Scheduling Simulation Basics of Project Monitoring and Control Changes and Claims Earned Value Analysis Quality Reviews and Audits • Simulation • - Involves mathematical description/representation of the management process • Helps identify optimal schedules and decisions • Helps to quickly determine impact of alternative schedules • Tools: algorithms implemented on computers

  34. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out Resource Scheduling Simulation Project Monitoring and Control Changes and Claims Earned Value Analysis Quality Reviews and Audits • Project Monitoring and Control • How to track your project costs, schedule (time), and other resources • Helps ascertain whether targets are being met • Needed so that due changes can be made to schedule as and when necessary

  35. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out Resource Scheduling Simulation Basics of Project Monitoring and Control Changes and Claims Earned Value Analysis Quality Reviews and Audits • Changes and Claims • What are the causes of time delays, cost overruns, change orders? • How can such problems be prevented or mitigated • Conflict resolution

  36. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out Resource Scheduling Simulation Basics of Project Monitoring and Control Changes and Claims Earned Value Analysis Quality Reviews and Audits • Earned Value Analysis • is a snapshot in time (as the project is in progress) • compares work plan vs. actual work progress • is a standard method of (a) measuring project progress at any given point in time, (b) updating forecasts of completion date and final cost, • Is an early warning system to detect deficient or endangered progress.

  37. 2nd Half of Project Management Course 1. The phases of - Development - Close Out Resource Scheduling Simulation Basics of Project Monitoring and Control Changes and Claims Earned Value Analysis Quality Reviews and Audits • Quality Reviews and Audits • Quality Control (typically done by owner’s inspectors at the end of major production phases. • Quality Assurance (typically done by contractor throughout the production, incl. raw materials • Audits and QA/QC Reviews (retrospective in nature)
