Project management defines all the work required to complete a project successfully, and should ensure that the scope of a project does not expand beyond what was originally intended. Time is the amount of time required to complete the project. Project management t ypically establishes the amount of time required to complete major components of a project. Each of these components is further broken down into activities and tasks. Project manage- ment tries to determine the time required to complete each task and establish a schedule for completing the work. Cost is based on the time to…
