This module deals with project management. The fundamental concepts are: typology of projects and structuring, graphic representation tools (Gantt chart, networks, critical road), anteriority between the tasks, critical path and lead-time margins, allocation of resources, levelling and smoothing of the load, costs, uncertain environment, project monitoring, organizational change and existing software. These notions are then illustrated through real-life cases. Particular attention will be paid to the notion of variability of tasks, which is inherent in human-centred engineering.
