Imagine the dynamics of an international engineering project such as this one: a U.S. group designs, prototypes, and qualifies disk drive heads; wafers for the drive heads are manufactured in the U.S. and sent to Malaysia for subassembly; a South Korean firm assembles these components; the final product, a fully automated disk drive, is completed in Japan. In addition to the global complexities of the project, there are a host of issues in leading the project team spread across continents. Global Engineering Project Management aligns real-world experiences in managing global projects with practical project management principles. The author demonstrates how to anticipate issues, covering everything from start-up planning and supply management to cost containment, post-project evaluation and protecting intellectual property. He explores technologies, virtual teams, traditions, economics, politics, and legal issues in the context of international projects, as well as compares the differences with domestic projects. He also highlights the complications of international bidding, the extra time and effort needed for multi-national team formation and management, and often overlooked project closure tasks. As the world goes global, engineering projects increasingly involve multiple countries, each having unique politics, cultures, and standards that all add layers of complexity to project management. These variables multiply fast and consequently a project manager’s responsibilities multiply faster. Examining these challenges from start to finish, the book provides practical advice on how to navigate the issues unique to global engineering project management.

Engineering Project Management provides a clear description of the aims of project management, based on best practice, and discusses the theory and practice in relation to multi-disciplinary engineering projects, both large and small, in the UK and overseas. The Third Edition takes account of the increase in joint ventures, project partnering, special project vehicles and other forms of collaborative working. The text has been extended to give more information on procurement, stakeholders and collaborative provision. For the first time this book now contains a chapter on the UK PRINCE2® project management methodology providing a unique insight into this increasingly popular approach. The expertise of the authors gained from their promotion of effective project management through a combination of professional experience, research, consultancy, education and training should be beneficial to both students of project management and recently appointed or practising project managers. The material is appropriate to support Masters level teaching, MSc, MBA and MEng, either by universities or others, action or distance learning courses and self learning programmes.

Engineering Project Management presents IPQMS (Integrated Planning and Quality Management System) as a powerful management methodology. This system ensures accountability, cost-effectiveness, and quality in the construction project, environmental cleanups, and other sectors - providing an integrative force for essential teamwork in industry and government. This resource contains IPQMS case histories or postmortems as distinguished from engineering and business case studies. Each case history analyzes the entire spectrum of a particular project, demonstrating the interrelationships among policy makers, planners, designers, implementers, and managers in creating a project. Lessons learned from over 35 cases in nine countries clearly show the need to establish accountability for quality execution of programs, projects, and policies. An outline for a two-week training program on the IPQMS for planners, designers, and managers is included.

Project Management for Engineers, as the title suggests, is a direct attempt at addressing the ever-increasing and specific needs for better project management of engineering students, practicing engineers and managers in the industry. It aims not only to present the principles and techniques of Project Management, but also to discuss project management standards, processes and requirements, such as PMBOK, IEEE and PRINCE. Each chapter begins with the basics of the theme being developed at a level understandable to an undergraduate, before more complex topics are introduced at the end of each section that are suitable for graduate students. For the practicing professionals or managers in the industry, the book also provides many real illustrations of practical application of the principles of Project Management. Through a realistic blend of theory and practical examples, as well as an integration of the engineering technical issues with business issues, this book seeks to remove the veil of mystery that has shrouded the profession from its very beginning.

The material in this book is intended primarily as an introduction to managing senior design projects for undergraduate engineering students during their junior or senior year; however, the text may be used by other young engineers working on development of commercial products. The text is aimed at having students gain knowledge and perhaps understand the management processes required to develop and produce a prototype system or device. Other goals are to have the students or young engineers learn not only by performing the design and project management processes, but also to learn about the various types of required project documents and management reports.
