Brian Steve Smith, PE, PMP, MBA
The course introduces the application of Monte Carlo simulation techniques to project schedules to estimate a probability-weighted range of possible completion dates. Project managers and investors often use Monte Carlo simulation to quantify the risks inherent in project economics or investment portfolios, and the same techniques may be applied to analyze and manage project schedule risks. Building upon a simple “point-case” project schedule, the course applies “stochastic” modeling tools and techniques to generate a closer approximation of real-world results through Monte Carlo simulation.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
