Want to gain invaluable project management insights, traditional methodologies and learn how to apply it specifically to your career as an engineer? ASME’s Project Management for Engineers & Technical Professionals course looks at some common challenges that engineers face and takes advantage of well-established traditional project management practices which will allow you to utilize big-picture thinking, create repeatable processes, and increase efficiency.

This course makes use of all the interactive features of our virtual classroom; so, come prepared for team-based activities and participation in breakout sessions. Participants work in teams to plan a real-world project in the area of mechanical engineering. The team environment amplifies and accelerates participants learning. It also prepares participants to manage their projects in the work environment.
 
In addition, each team will build an individual project idea from design to completion, emulating the traditional project management life cycle. This course is 100% compliant with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s®) current Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and introduces mechanical engineers to Project Management from a theoretical point of view. 
 
By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Differentiate between project, program, and sub-project by identifying contrasting and related characteristics of each utilizing examples from engineering specific industries.
  • Employ an integrated real-world engineering project to create deliverables, such as a work breakdown structure and a project charter, scope statement, project network diagrams and time-driven schedule.
  • Identify each of the following tools, techniques or outputs using an automated project management tool: Critical path; Schedule compression; Crashing; Slack/float; Fast tracking; and Resource leveling
  • Apply project scheduling concepts, geared toward typical Mechanical engineering Concepts, such as Activity Gantt Chart, resource gram/ histogram; resource spreadsheet; and resource-driven schedule through multimedia presentation showing step-by-step procedure.
  • The ability to compare and contrast project management to strategic management, operations management, and crisis management.

Topics include:

  • Traditional project management principles and methodology
  • Planning, controlling, and coordinating individual and group efforts.
  • Contracts and procurement management
  • Quality management.
  • Structure and Culture
  • Estimating Project Time and Costs
  • Developing a Project Network
  • Managing Risk & Group Activity
  • Scheduling Resources
  • Reducing Project Time
  • Leadership
  • Managing Project Teams
  • Project Auditing
  • International Projects
  • Future of Project Management
