DNSC 6290 Project Quality Management (3 credit hours) taught by Dr. Andrew Griffith

Classic project management theory includes the concept of the triple constraint – time, cost, and quality. However, quality can be a rather vague term that is hard to quantify, measure, or improve. Project quality can be divided into three separate concerns: (1) the features incorporated in the project deliverables, (2) the fitness of the deliverables for the intended application, and (3) the effectiveness or efficiency of the project development and execution. This course is focused on the quality management of projects. It explores current theories and practices regarding quality management as applied to manufacturing and the service industry, the application to project systems, and the application to individual projects. In addition, we will explore the application of project management techniques in implementing a quality improvement initiative within an organization.

Prerequisites: None

DNSC 6290 International Project Management (1.5 credit hours) taught by Dr. Sam Ghosh (offered online only, not on campus)
