About this book

As a companion to books on project-management theory, this book illustrates, in a down-to-earth, comprehensive style, how to put that theory into practice. In addition to the many examples that illustrate procedures, the book includes over 25 case studies, each one addressing a specific theme. Key topics, such as project selection, negotiations, planning and scheduling, cost and budgeting, project control, human resources, environmental impacts, risk management, and financial evaluation, are discussed, using a step-by-step approach. Beginning at the grassroots level, some cases are solved by hand to illustrate the mechanics of a procedure, while others are solved using advanced computer programs. In this way the reader has a clear idea of the problem, how and when to raise the issue, information needed (and who can provide it), how to solve it by hand, when possible, and also its resolution using the latest informatics tools.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Munier (Polytechnic Univ. of Valencia, Spain), an experienced engineering project manager, covers project management principles in this book, which is specifically targeted to engineers who are in charge of environmental, construction, or manufacturing projects. … Each chapter includes a brief synopsis and a list of references relevant to that specific chapter. This book will be useful for an introductory undergraduate course on management of projects in these disciplines … . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and two-year technical program students.” (P. F. Rad, Choice, Vol. 50 (6), February, 2013)
