Learning outcomes The planning of the several activities that take place within organisations (companies, services, etc.) aims to achieve objectives that meet the needs and aspirations previously identified. While such planning depends on the organisational and operational model of each company or service, there is a growing preference for models that directly relate to the goals to be achieved, both with the availability of resources and with the constitution and the duration/cost of the teams required to carry out the several activities. The application of these models can generate substantial increases in productivity and efficiency at the level of several subsystems.The Aeronautical Project Management intends to develop in the students, on the one hand, critical reasoning around the matter and, on the other hand, the competencies that allow them to take the most appropriate options if they are confronted with decision-making processes in real scenarios.
