Project management is a judiciously planned and organized effort to accomplish a specific project within a time frame. This book is designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, production engineering, management studies as well as working professionals who wish to have an insight into the entire life cycle decisions related to a project.

This book on project management looks at the decisions to be made during the various phases of the project process, examines systematic methodologies and models that help in the decision making, and provides interpretation of results obtained from various models so that they may be intelligently adopted by a practical project manager in the successful implementation of any project. This book offers something for each of the following categories of readers:

For the student : It provides a treatment of the fundamentals of project management, stressing the underlying theory and assumptions for the various decisions to be made in the entire life cycle. There are examples and practice problems to illustrate the concepts.

For the practical project manager : It is a systematic collection of major decisions and solution methodologies available for tackling the problems of project management. The role of human and behavioural factors in managing teams and conflict resolution is emphasized along with technical expertise.

For the researcher : Throughout the text where results are derived, the reference to original sources is included so that the serious reader may pursue those ideas in greater depth. Also hints on the state-of-the-art and directions for research are included wherever appropriate.
