Project management techniques, managing project resources, controlling the project, analysis of trends in project management.
This course introduces current best practices of construction project planning, control, and management techniques. These include, but are not limited to, critical path method, earned value analysis, resource management, linear scheduling, project time-cost trade-off, building information modelling (BIM), and health and safety management. Both theoretical knowledge and practical applications are addressed and integrated. Students are required to demonstrate a high level of independent and critical thinking by critically evaluating traditional practices and prospecting for the future of construction management. One of the highlights of the course is the BIM-based group project, where students are required to develop a schedule using the critical path method and conduct 4D simulations using Navisworks. Industry Talks (IT) are organized to help students bridge theories and practices and enhance employability skills.
On completion of this course, students should be able to: Interpret the importance of pre-project planning Apply Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) Understand the dimensions of project success and project complexity Conduct critical path method analysis Understand the legal implications of float Conduct earned value analysis Draw resource histogram and level resource and optimize resource allocation Comprehend the fundamentals of the linear scheduling method Draw a linear schedule diagram Apply the conceptual approach to analyze delay Perform time-cost trade-off analysis Understand BIM uses in the project lifecycle Use Navisworks for quantity take-off and 4D simulation Conduct literature review research
