Introduction:

Accurate cost estimation and project scheduling of a project results in significant savings, and is one of the critical management skills.

In the initial stages and final stages of a project, it is necessary for proper estimation as with early conceptual estimates determines whether a project will be accepted/rejected.

This course will provide the skills for proper project scheduling and the skills required for cost estimation and planning.

Course Objectives:

  • Understanding the techniques in project estimation from initial to final stages
  • Understanding the different types of estimated and the methodology
  • Analysing and identifying the sources of the risk and how to minimize the impact
  • Cost management and integrating approach into a dynamic and manageable model objective
  • Understanding the importance of maintaining continuous project performance and delivery control
  • Accurate estimating and allocating project costs and resources
  • Forecast measurement and controlling project performance
  • How to manage and mitigate project schedule, cost , scope and resource risks

Course Outlines:
