Reference Book: Readings in Information technology Project Management, Richardson and Butler, Thompson Publishing, ISBN: 0-619-21750-2.


Required Software: Microsoft Project (available in all PC labs)


Instructor Material: Class notes available in the instructor's Web site.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:  To acquaint students with the project management techniques and their application to software project management such as software development plan, its associated tasks, cost estimation, task scheduling, milestones and deliverables.

 To acquaint students with the tools and techniques for the task scheduling, cost estimation, and tracking.

 To prepare students for future careers in IT project management.

  • To acquaint students with the requirements of PMP Exam.


COURSE ACTIVITIES: The course will contain lectures, two research papers, tests, discussion, group projects, presentations, and documentation. The test will be a combination of multiple choice and short answers. Students will also be evaluated based on their participation and performance in the group project.


GROUP PROJECT: Students will work in groups (4-5 students per group) to manage an information systems development project. They will implement an SDLC methodology to develop the system. Each group will identify its own project and discuss with the instructor before finalizing the project. Each group will be divided into two sub-groups: management and execution. One sub-group will be responsible for the overall management of the project (development of a project plan as well as executing the plan). The personnel of this sub-group contain a Project Manager and a Systems Analyst/Assistant Project Manager. The other sub-group will be responsible for the execution of the project plan through the development of system-related documents (analysis, design, coding, testing, etc.) as well as implementing the system design using Access, VB, C#, ASP.NET, etc. The personnel of this group contain programmers, testers, database administrators, network administrators, and etc.

The group as a whole will decide, after discussion among themselves and knowing the background and leadership quality of each, who will act in various roles. While the execution sub-group will be responsible for actual work, the management sub-group will be responsible for developing the project plan, hold meetings, monitor the progress of the project, and produce reports. However, until the planning, analysis, and design phases of the system development life cycle are completed, all members must participate in developing system-related documents (use case, DFD, ERD, forms, reports, etc.) as assigned by the project manager.


The group members may interchange their roles during the middle of the semester; however, if they can work coherently, there will not be any changes necessary. It is expected that the group will act responsibly without the intervention of the instructor; however, any significant complexity in assigning and following roles should be brought to instructor’s attention. Failure to do so will not only result chaos but affect grades as well.


DOCUMENTATION: Each group will be responsible for producing all necessary documentation during the life of the project. These documentation needs to be organized and kept in a web folder for the group as a website. The documents must also be submitted in a binder titled, “Project Management Document” at the end of the semester. Students are required to use Microsoft Project. See attached list for the required documentation for this binder.


GROUP PRESENTATION: Each project-group will make three to four presentations on their project during the semester. The presentations will be on: (i) The Project charter, (ii) Project Plan and (iii) Progress Report, and (iv) Final Report. Refer to the schedule on the web site. Each student must participate in the presentation and there will be discussion on the presented materials.


WRITING/DISCUSSION/ATTENDANCE: 


Students are expected to be present in class and participate in writing on topics discussed in previous class periods.  The writings will be discussed in class and may be collected for grading.


RESEARCH PAPER:   Each student is required to write a research paper on a topic closely related to the text material but is not covered in detail in class.  Straight copying from the Web is not allowed.  Students should consult texts, journals, and trade magazines to write the paper in a scientific format and in student's own language.


WEB SITE: Again, students will post all documents and presentation in a web site. Each student-group will get a folder in the web server to store all documents in an organized way. Refer to previous years’ web site and documentations.

  1. Academic Honesty: The Honesty Code is the university community’s standard of honesty and is endorsed by all members of the University of Houston-Clear Lake academic community. It is an essential element of the University’s academic credibility. It states: I will be honest in all my academic activities and will not tolerate dishonesty.


Academic honesty is the cornerstone of the academic integrity of the university. It is the foundation upon which the student builds personal integrity and establishes a standard of personal behavior. Because honesty and integrity are such important factors in the professional environment, you should be aware that failure to perform within the bounds of theses ethical standards is sufficient grounds to receive a grade of “F” in this course and be recommended for suspension from UHCL. For further information, refer to the University of Houston-Clear Lake catalog.
