This exciting new resource guides readers through a step-by-step process on how to deliver quality, robust products and services while strengthening teams and customer relationships. Drawing on the author’s extensive knowledge in aerospace and defense contracting, Practical Project Management for Engineers shares real world examples to recover schedule, cost and performance, explaining the tools, techniques, and methodologies to ensure success. It compares NASA, Department of Defense (DoD), and Project Management Institute (PMI) processes and provides best practices that work in the real world to deliver quality products on time and on budget.


This book applies the Pareto Principle, which focuses on the 20% of the material that contributes to the majority (80%) of success to help engineering managers to move a project from contract award to delivery while increasing productivity tenfold. This book is a “how-to” manual for those struggling to get their projects under control as well as for new project managers looking who need a holistic view of project management.

Introduction; Scope Management; Requirements Analysis; Communication; Configuration Management; Schedule Management; Resource Management; Earned Value Systems; Procurement; Risk Analysis.
