System and Project Management: Course Description

System and project management is a methodical approach underlying a system or project from beginning to end. Every aspect of project development, from the initial stages all the way to the closing of the project, is researched and evaluated. The idea is to deviate as little as possible from pre-planned objectives, quality, time and cost. Specific class topics include actual versus perceived progress; design structure matrices (DSM); task iterations; unplanned rework; concurrent engineering infrastructures; and misalignments between organizations, tasks and product architectures. This course is designed for current industry managers, executives and professionals as well as for System Design and Management students. The actual MIT graduate-level course is taught by Professors Olivier de Weck, Steven Eppinger and James Lyneis in a lecture-style format.

This course includes lecture notes, previous students' comments on subject matter from the lectures, assignments and solutions, assignment grading rubrics, previous students' projects and a MATLAB file of the capstone project.
