INTRODUCTION

         Project management differs from management of more traditional activities
mainly because of its limited time framework and the unique set of activities involved.
Managers typically oversee a variety of operations. Some of these involve routine,
repetitive activities, but others involve nonroutine activities. Projects may involve
considerable cost. Some have a long time horizon, and some involve a large number of
activities that must be carefully planned and coordinated. Most are expected to be
completed on time, cost, and performance targets. You already been introduces the basic
concepts of project management including description of graphical and calculation
methods that are used for planning and scheduling projects during lecture hour.
Nowadays, project management software is often used to facilitate project management.
During this lab session, you will learn to use Microsoft Office Project such as creating
work break down structure (wbs) and project schedule, assign resources to specific tasks,
assessing resource over allocation and examining schedule variance in real time
