This Project Management Classroom Simulation is the 2nd of our new classroom gaming exercises. It accompanies Chapter 3, Project Management, and is free within our MyOMLab learning system.

Activity Brief

Select and manage subcontractors to achieve schedule and profitability goals of home-building project.

You are the general contractor for a high-end, private residence construction job. You manage teams of subcontractors who work on various aspects of the house, from plumbing and electrical to drywall and landscaping. The homeowners, Robert and Maggie Applebaum, want to be in their new house in 7 months and will check in with you regularly about its progress. It is your job to make sure daily operations at the site are running smoothly and that the house is completed on time and within budget, without negatively affecting your other building projects
