|Abstract: ||Successful product development projects are critical to competitiveness in several industries. Successful
management of these projects requires an understanding and use of the dynamics of projects. Existing
research has focused on a static view of project management. This research investigates the impacts of
dynamic project structure on performance with a focus on the influence of the development process.
A dynamic simulation model of a single phase project was built using the system dynamics methodology.
The model integrates several previously developed and tested software project structures and adds a
separate structure for the negotiation process. Simulations describe the behaviour generated by the
interaction of a customized development project phase and a project management structure. Project
performance is measured in time, quality and cost.
The research finds that development processes significantly impact the dynamic behaviour of projects
through the feedback, delays ...|
