Abstract

This paper addresses a new framework aiming situation-dependent scenario generation for project management skill-up simulator. Project management is inherently human-centric activities, and research work for education has been done by using simulation. Project management covers several aspects on software development such as planning, scheduling, progress management and negotiation. We especially focus on the progress management phase to provide high fidelity of project status and well-configured learning situation towards pedagogical achievement. First three design principles are argued for such viewpoints. Second simple but fully functional project modeling is proposed for simulating essential aspects of Q(uality), C(ost) and D(elivery) criteria. Third situation-dependent scenario generation is described with “Events” and “Trigger control of trouble events”. The proposed framework is implemented and shows effective scenario generation when having a trainee’s interactive operations.
