Abstract

The case description of this chapter is a follow-up exercise of the case of Chap.6 and also acts as an integrated exercise to get acquainted with the scheduling principles discussed in Part II of this book. The primary goal of this fictitious case study is to get acquainted with project scheduling software and to construct a feasible resource-constrained project schedule, which is clearly understandable by all project stakeholders. The goal of the student is to go further than submitting software print-outs to the project team. Instead, the purpose is the integration of the resource-constrained scheduling principles of the previous chapters within the features of a project scheduling tool in order to provide an easy and understandable information sheet on the predicted project execution to the various members of a project team.Similar to the first case study, the topic of this chapter can also be used to teach extended scheduling principles, such as the use of CC/BM scheduling principles, the incorporation of other scheduling objectives in a resource-constrained project setting, and many more. In this chapter, only the case description is given. The solution and the educational approach depend on the wishes and needs of the students who solve the case and the teacher who can act as the moderator during the case teaching session.
