Casas del Futuro

Casas del Futuro

Mutasem Al-Abweh nos presenta en este art铆culo un enfoque alternativo sobre la Agilidad aplicada al sector de la construcci贸n.

芦Viviendas con Contenedores Mar铆timos禄 es una aproximaci贸n audaz e interesante sobre la forma de percibir las Casas del Futuro.

Una tendencia actual en la construcci贸n 谩gil es la transformaci贸n de contenedores mar铆timos en edificios habitables. Una ventaja adicional de los nuevos modos de instalaci贸n o construcci贸n prefabricadas hace que los contenedores sean muy atractivos para los arquitectos.

Houses of the Future

Casas del Futuro

Here we bring to you a very interesting post from Mutasem Al-Abweh about alternative construction with an Agile construction focus. 芦Shipping Container Homes禄 it is a very bold aproach and a very interesting way to see the Houses of the Future. Mutasem Al-Abweh is an Industrial Engineer with a Dual Master Graduate in Industrial Processes Management from the University of Burgos, Spain.

A current trend in agile construction is towards using disposed of rusting shipping containers at ports for housing.

The added advantage of new modes of installation makes shipping containers more attractive to architects. Along with other projects where houses could be built, only shipping container projects have recently focused on being built by the resident him/herself.

Change Project Scoping and Scope Creep Control – ProjectManagers.org

Scope management is one of the critical tasks of the Project Manager, and the most difficult knowledge area in PMBOK to define and control.

This difficulty is intrinsic to the projects because we cannot ignore the human side of such projects. The project objectives are defined by people, assailed by doubts and indecision, and who depend on processes in their organizations that hinder the definition of Scope (different departments, poor communication within the organization, etc.)

Are Project Managers Control Freaks?

The attitude of the Project Manager is usually that of a maniacally controlling professional, who avoids changes at all costs. This attitude is understandable because once we have taken charge of our project and have our project plan under control, we do not want to change it just because a last-minute suggestion for the project dawned on someone.
