ULM Project Management Theory and Simulation Ciencias Informática



The main goal is to give the students a brief introduction to Project Management in a lecture style and then have them practice project management in a lab setting. They would try to tackle a concrete project from the perspective of a Project Manager in groups of about three. 

The practices are carried out with a quite popular Project Management Simulation Software (SimulTrain) which is accessible via a Web Browser (e.g., IE or Firefox).

TOPICS COVERED (subject to slight changes):

  • Introduction to Project Management
  • Motivation
  • What is a Project
  • What is Project Management
  • Project Lifecycle
  • Project Constraints
  • PMI Project Management Processes, Groups and Knowledge Areas
  • Project Planning Basics
  • Project Organization
  • Work Breakdown Structure
  • Task Network
  • Project Schedule
  • Critical Path
  • Project Execution and Controlling Basics
  • Tracking Team Member’s Progress
  • Project Vital Signs (Monitoring Project Constraints)
  • Earned Value Analysis
  • Project Simulation
  • Project Leadership
  • Project Management/Monitoring
  • Human Resources Management

Note: Students do not necessarily need to have sound knowledge on Project Management already
