When Advanced Project Management first appeared in 1981 it quickly acquired a reputation for excellence on both sides of the Atlantic as a book that successfully bridges the gap between introductory texts on project management and specialist works on professional practice. Its aim is twofold: to provide both a guide for managers, engineers, accountants and others involved in project work and a reference for advanced students of project and construction management.This fourth edition of the book has been heavily revised, with substantial new material to reflect the changes in project management in the 10 years since the previous edition. The following topics are either new to the book or have been given greater emphasis:- Project definition and appraisal- Procurement and the supply chain- Concurrent engineering- Cost and management accounting- Quality management- More detailed explanations of critical path analysis, now predominately using the precedence system- Increased treatment of resource scheduling- Planning with multiple calendars- Planning within fixed time constraints, using crashing and fast-tracking methods- Standard networks, modules and templates- Risk management
