Estimating & Scheduling

Estimating & Scheduling

Estimating and scheduling are at the heart of project planning.  In this course, you will learn the various methods of determining the effort required in order to accomplish the defined scope of work.  We'll focus on how to develop a schedule and defining dependences.  This involves an understanding of resource competencies, productivity levels and the impact team size plays on them.  You will also apply statistical confidence to the estimates so that a realistic baseline in terms of both time and cost can be developed.  Students will work on team exercises to build a schedule that takes into consideration the resource availabilities, relationships and the risks associated with each defined work effort.  

Course objectives include:

  • Common scheduling terminology
  • Common estimating techniques
  • How to build a project schedule
  • Perform schedule analysis and calculate critical path
  • Evaluate schedule risks
  • Allocate resources to the schedule
