Description

Technical projects require greater effort for effective problem solving. The lack of adequate planning and control in projects is linked to a wide gap between project management practice and applying a systems approach to project scheduling. This article looks at the key difficulties faced by engineers in managing technical project schedules and identifies the current gap in knowledge training. Project decision making can be strengthened by applying an integrated systems view. A framework is presented for developing and integrating knowledge sharing to optimize the decision process by incorporating learning effects to make better schedule management decisions. Applying an integrated systems approach when evaluating potential scheduled changes can reveal interdependencies and problem areas that are neither obvious nor well defined by other planning methods. The output will help managers determine what changes should be made for a project to stay on schedule and the downstream impact of those changes.
