This course covers engineering management activities and the engineer's professional responsibilities, during development, acquisition and sustainment of aeronautical and mechanical hardware systems. The engineer's role in a project team, scope development, task and schedule management, resource planning, procurement and financial management are explored through practical exposure to developing work breakdown structures, sequencing of tasks, scheduling resources and quality and risk management. Sustaining hardware in service is addressed through use of technical integrity based maintenance management techniques including maintenance strategies, repair or replacement decision making, condition monitoring and technical management information systems. Learning areas are reinforced by participation in a product life cycle team project and analysis of in-service maintenance case studies.
