Description

This course will build on the General or Introduction to Project Management Course by focusing on the Preconstruction Phase. The basic concept of the triple constraints of scope, schedule, and budget will be clarified for projects subject to regulations and procedures of the funding agency, often the FHWA. These regulations and procedures result in milestones and approvals that constrain the schedule. The course will follow the usual project management sequence of initiation, planning, executing and closing and will combine lectures, ADOT experts, and student in-class activities. The course, which will be presented in five, four-hour sessions, will cover the cost and schedule implications of many of the topics in Chapter 4 of the Alaska Highway Preconstruction Manual - Project Development Process.

Student in-class activities include the development of a Project 4 Management Plan, preparing a scoping memo, evaluating the impacts of changes to the approval and development process, analysis of a preconstruction schedule and risks. Several of the topics and exercises will improve communications skills.
