Unit of study_

ENGG2851: Project Analytics

Project Management Data analytics (DA) provides extensive coverage related to examining raw data with the purpose of drawing conclusions about that information. It is used in many industries to allow companies and organisation to make better business decisions and in the sciences to verify or disprove existing models or theories. Here, we focus our effort on providing in-depth knowledge and skills to students focusing on inference, process of deriving a conclusion based solely on what is already known by the project manager.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. explain the purpose of measurement in different project contexts (hard/soft, large/small, complex/not, different domains, etc.)
  • LO2. explain the uses and limitations of measurement in different project contexts
  • LO3. explore a range of analytical tools and techniques for monitoring and control that are appropriate to different project contexts
  • LO4. select and apply analytic tools and techniques to analyse situations, financial and organisational data and trends
  • LO5. apply analytical tools and techniques to specific project contexts
  • LO6. monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to baselines or other project parameters
  • LO7. review and evaluate project performance at handover (phase transition or project completion).
