This is a practitioner’s book, combining theoretical and practical applications for project professionals. It is a loosely coupled work flow that takes PM’s through the most important quantitative methods, integrates them, and shows interrelationships that cannot be obtained by separate readings. These practical methods can be applied easily by project practitioners who are not steeped in theory and need to know how to make everyday use of numerical analysis in projects. This book also covers financial and life cycle risk as well as risk for the project itself and contains unique extensions to earned value and project initiation. This book will be of particular interest to project managers, program managers, project administrators, system engineers, cost and risk estimators, as well as continuing education and seminar providers.
