Tutorials end this week. However, there is a Q&A session scheduled for July 8, at 8.15h, room PC2. If you have any questions concerning the exam I recommend you to attend this session.
The exam consists of two parts addressing theory and practice in project management. In the practical part you can get up 75 points and up 25 points in the theoretical part. In order to pass the exam you have to achieve at least 50 points in total, no strings attached.
When preparing for your exam in project management you should focus on the following minimum knowledge necessary to pass the exam:
For the theoretical part:
You should be in the position to answer all questions of the self-tests to all four chapters of the lecture. Please note that in the exam there are no multiple-choice questions, you have to answer the questions explicitly.
In the practical part you should be in the position to resort to the following tool knowledge:
- Define tasks and assign them to summary tasks
- Link tasks (in sequence, in parallel)
- Define resources
- Assign resources to task (remember the difference between first and subsequent allocation)
- Determine the work contour
- Set the availability of a person/resource
- Define and assign a calendar containing non-working days. Don’t forget the assignment!
- Set constraint type and date
- Define and set milestones
- Define and set a deadline
- Set a baseline
- Update work/tasks as complete
Again, these are the minimum requirements! If you want to reach well beyond that level you should also learn (not memorize) the slides of the four chapters and in particular the ones addressing schedule network analysis. In the practical part, should know how to re-allocate resources in order to reduce project time or reach the project deadline.
