The complete, up-to-date guide to project management for engineering and technology that fully reflects the latest PMBOK standards.

 

Project Management for Engineering and Technology is the up-to-date guide to engineering and technology-specific project management that fully reflects the latest standards in the "Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK). Unlike competitive texts, it covers not just project management process skills, but also crucial people skills such as negotiation, personal time management, change management, diversity, and overcoming adversity. Topics covered include: scheduling, cost estimating, budgets, human resources, communication, procurement, quality plans, risk management, team building, project monitoring/control, and closeout. Readers will find up-to-date case studies related to the full spectrum of engineering and technology projects, including design, manufacturing, quality improvement, and process development. They will master skills they can apply in assignments ranging from the design and manufacture of the largest jetliner to the smallest circuit board. Every chapter contains a case study that illustrates the complexities and challenges of real-world engineering and technology projects, and shows why effective project management is so critical.
