PSG University College London (2013)

Motivated Engineering Students -- Good results!

Friday, February 1, 2013, a small group of Engineering students from University College of London have controlled an electronic development project based on the Project Scheduling Game. Last week, they followed only one session on network analysis and critical path scheduling techniques, and hence, they had to run the PSG simulation with a limited knowledge and experience. However, a clever project control approach and a detailed analysis helped them towards finding good strategies. 

There was one student who had a good result and decided to compare his solution with a quick and easy random project control approach. Therefore, he started all over again and played the PSG for a second time without much analysis and attention. It brought him to the worst result we have ever seen throughout the years. Thank you for this interesting experiment.

Conclusion: Random control does not lead to successful projects!

Well done!
