Project Management for Engineering Professionals
This online engineering PDH course presents an overview of modern practices in effective management of technical projects and engineering professionals’ participation in this process.
It starts with a discussion about the engineering personnel’s involvement in Project Management and definitions of the project, triple constraint and work breakdown structure. This is followed by the discussions of all major processes of Project Management, including:
- Definition of Scope
- Procurement process
- Risk management
- Project communications
- Project baseline and control
- Performance measurement
Explanations are supported by numerous down-to-earth examples to improve the retention of material. The last part of the course covers one of the most effective methods of project control, Earned Value Analysis (EVA), showing participants how to use EVA metrics to forecast project outcome and define corrective actions, if needed. An extensive case study of EVA application is presented as well.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to all engineering professionals looking to expand their knowledge and experience in modern project management to become a valuable member of their Project Team.
