About simulated reality

Rome, 71 A.D. For two years the Emperor Flavius Vespasian, who after the death of Nero Caesar and the subsequent civil war came to power chosen by the soldiers. The emperor, general, and the winner in one person, has large financial resources and a great number of slaves. He consistently is building its power and Rome.

A good move is to run an investment that will be profitable and will strengthen prestige of Caesar and the Roman state, and also give a sense of satisfaction to citizens of Rome.

Project simulator of Earned Value Method

Computer simulation allows to run multiple  projects and quickly observe  impact of player’s decisions on results and indicators of the project. The application is available from the browser window and illustrates such techniques, as:

  • earned value method,
  • resource allocation,
  • CPI, SPI, BAC, PV, EV, AC,
  • crashing,
  • multi tasking,
  • switching cost
  • varying resource effectiveness,
  • baselines, actuals, forecasts.
