The Project Scheduling Game

Project optimization in the classroom

The Project Scheduling Game (PSG) is an IT-supported simulation game to get acquainted with dynamic project scheduling using the critical path method (CPM). The critical path method involves a time/cost trade-off in project activities and require the construction of a project baseline schedule within a predefined project deadline and budget. The uncertainty during project progress disturbs the original baseline schedule and requires interventions to bring the project back on track.

The game

The Project Scheduling Game (PSG) consists of two modules:
  • The PSG Creator: used by the educator to create PSG projects
  • The PSG Simulator: used by the students/participants to play the game
