Types of Resource- Time, Men, Material, Machinery, Money, Space - Balancing of resource - Resource smoothing technique- Time constraint - Resource leveling technique- Resource constraint- Case study.

UNIT IV

RESOURCE OPTIMIZATION

Types of cost – Direct, indirect and total cost - Variation of cost with time - Schedule compression techniques- Crashing, fast tracking & Re-estimation- Crash timeand crash cost - Optimize project cost for time and resource - CPM cost model - Life cycle assessment - Impacts and economical assessment - Life cycle cost- Maintenance and operation -Life cycle forecasting – Concept and applications.

UNIT V

EMERGING TRENDS IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT

AGILE Project management and Project Management using latest tools- Case study.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: On successful completion of the course, the students will be able to
• explain the concept of projects, its process, objectives and functions of project management.
• analyze and manage time in projects through gantt charts, cpm and pert techniques.
• balance resource requirements of projects so as to avoid idling of resources.
• update projects and determine revised schedule of activities and critical path, if any.
• crash projects to determine its optimum time-minimum cost relationships.
