Description

The Simpson-Wilberg Technique for Expert Decision Tree Modeling (patent case number S-83,506) establishes and identifies the proper requirements governing effective business and operating practices through the use of knowledge-based engineering (KBE). The new application, Project Control Expert System (ProCon X) was created by the Simpson-Wilberg technique as a tool for project definition planning and control. ProCon X guides the project manager through an interview session asking project characteristic questions and establishes the proper project criteria. The criteria produced define the rigor applied to the project activities, i.e., level of work breakdown structure (WBS), type of scheduling, amount of cost estimating, ... continued below

Description

The Simpson-Wilberg Technique for Expert Decision Tree Modeling (patent case number S-83,506) establishes and identifies the proper requirements governing effective business and operating practices through the use of knowledge-based engineering (KBE). The new application, Project Control Expert System (ProCon X) was created by the Simpson-Wilberg technique as a tool for project definition planning and control. ProCon X guides the project manager through an interview session asking project characteristic questions and establishes the proper project criteria. The criteria produced define the rigor applied to the project activities, i.e., level of work breakdown structure (WBS), type of scheduling, amount of cost estimating, etc. In this paper the use of the Simpson-Wilberg technique will be illustrated for solving the problems of identifying proper project criteria for project management. This technique has been used for other applications outside the project management field and can be used in any field with a need for consistent application of rules and procedures routinely used for business and operating practices.
