BETTER PROJECT PLANNING AND CONTROL THROUGH THE USE OF SYSTEM ANALYSIS AND MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES.
COOK, DESMOND L.
THE COMBINED APPLICATION OF SYSTEM ANALYSIS AND MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES IS DESCRIBED AS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO ACHIEVE OPTIMUM RESULTS IN THE PLANNING AND EXECUTION OF PROJECTS IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION. PROJECTS OF THIS TYPE ARE GENERALLY FINITE, COMPLEX, HOMOGENOUS, AND NONREPETITIVE. SYSTEM ANALYSIS OF A PROJECT INCLUDES ITS DISASSEMBLY INTO COMPONENTS AND ITS REASSEMBLY THROUGH A SYNTHESIS BASED UPON A LINEAR FLOW CHART APPROACH INCORPORATING TIME, COST, AND PERFORMANCE VARIABLES. SUGGESTIONS INCLUDE HOW TO THINK OF A PROJECT AS A SYSTEM, THE IMPORTANCE OF ESTABLISHING SPECIFIC GOALS, TYPES OF PROJECT CONTROL, AND THE CONTRIBUTION SYSTEM ANALYSIS CAN MAKE TO THE FUNCTION OF MANAGEMENT IN EDUCATION. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE SYMPOSIUM ON OPERATIONS ANALYSIS OF EDUCATION, SPONSORED BY THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR EDUCATIONAL STATISTICS (WASHINGTON, D.C., NOVEMBER 20-22, 1967). (JK)
