Course contents *
Lectures that introducethe knowledge in project management up of the whole process from idea to delivered results. It includes project management concepts, methods, tools and models, the basis in situational leadership and the creation of calculations, plans, sections and detail drawings. Furthermore, it includes the role of information technology on management and implementation of projects in the built environment and the analysis of project-, context- and object specific information (e g conflicts between different actors' needs and conflicts between different objectives, resource dependencies, quantity takeoff from the model and the connection to other software for analysis).
Intended learning outcomes *
The course introduces managerial-, leadership-, organizational- and information related issues in project-based organizations in architecture, city development, design, construction and facility management. The overall the aim of the course is that the student should, on completion of the course, be to describe different types of projects within the built environment. It can include construction-, city- or infrastructure projects, planning, pre studies, design projects, project deliveries or industrial building methods. The student should be able to apply project management and information management support such CAD and BIM on minor projects and also understand single projects in a broader context.
This implies that the student, on completion of the course, can:
- Describe and explain the projectification of society in general and the development of the project based built environment in special.
- Describe and explain the basic concepts of project management, including common methods and tools.
- Describe and explain the basic tasks that a project manager has from idea to delivered project.
- Develop a basic project plan
- Understand the relation between short and long-term objectives and reflect on necessary priorities between time, budget and function on short and long basis.
- Describe and explain how the context influences the project work and how more sustainable buildings, cities and societies can be developed.
- Describe and explain the central project actors and project roles
- Describe and explain the role of information and information technology (IT) for initiating, planning, implementing and following up sustainable projects within the built environment.
- Describe and explain CAD and BIM and their role for decision-making in projects within the built environment.
- Describe and explain drawing designations.
- Draw objects in 3D, establish plans and intersections and drawings with designations.
- Collect and process information from digital models e g for the analysis of quantities and energy values.
