28 Just the tip of the iceberg. , baseline plan). , occur during the course of the project because the current project planning and management tools, like Microsoft Project, do a very poor job of accommodating these types of real-world issues into their simple models and methods. Following the text on the left side of the graphic, a tool like pmBLOX using the DPM not only provides a better starting point with a more realistic baseline plan but also enables project managers and project teams to better understand what options are available to them for recovering from unexpected delays.

Hours per day, number of resources). The key point here is that the major input is the task duration. This means that a task can be solely represented by a duration, with no concern for the resources necessary for that task, even though resources are the real-world components that get the work done. Thus, Microsoft Project (and CPM-based tools) often disconnects the resources from the duration in an attempt to make the tool user-friendly and easy to learn. Now, users who are new to project management can quickly and easily put together a project plan.

To be introduced to be able to make this happen. 7 breaks out the three classes of models into more specific modeling approaches that fall within these classes. This is not a complete list. However, it contains the major modeling approaches within each class and is sufficient for the discussion in this book that is related to the CPM, the DPM, and treating projects as systems. 7, the three classes are broken down into six modeling technologies ranging from lowest fidelity to highest fidelity: (1) best guess, (2) spreadsheet, (3) parametric model, (4) network model, (5) discrete event simulation, and (6) system dynamics simulation.
