$150 / seat

Simulation Overview

In this simulation, students learn how to successfully complete a project initiative, while managing cost, time, and realistic challenges often faced by project managers in a highly competitive industry.

The Story

As the project manager at Delphi Printers and Peripherals, each student is tasked with managing a product design team to develop a new and innovative consumer printer. Students must staff the project team, manage team process, and execute a project plan. Then, students analyze information on team size, task completion, cost, team productivity, schedule, and team morale. Unanticipated events and challenges threaten the success of the project and force students to consider possible tradeoffs among project resources in order to bring the new product to market on time, on budget, and ahead of the competition.
