STOCHASTIC PROCESSES IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Nataliia Oberemok, Ivan Oberemok

Abstract


Performance of planned activities not always leads to the achievement of planned results in innovation projects with a high degree of uncertainty. Management of such specific projects requires the usage of specific methods and processes. It is necessary to develop own stochastic process methods rather than use classical methods of deterministic management.
The main peculiarity of stochastic processes of projects consists in the inability to carry out more than one experiment. Implementation of a project is a stochastic process, which is carried out only once.
For the purposes of the research, stochastic project management is the process of organisation, planning and control over projects, in which the decisions and actions of managers are described by stochastic functions. If the project realisation is described by stochastic processes, the project management process is indeed described by stochastic processes.
This research suggests a project management approach based on the focus on the project product and project management as stochastic processes based on stochastic functions. It is demonstrated that stochastic function values, which underlie the stochastic processes, are formed by the intellectual instruments of those involved in the project and are developed on the basis of their knowledge and skills. The latter, in turn, are the result of studying and practical work on the project. Therefore, it is difficult to predict decisions and actions of managers and contractors, even if internal and external influences on them are specified. Then, any decisions or actions of such persons with regard to the external observer are described by stochastic functions.
The purpose of this study is to describe the processes of stochastic project management. The purpose of the study is the project management process. The subject of research is the methods of stochastic project management. Within the framework of the study, all groups of processes of stochastic control will be mathematically described and the conditions of their impact determined.
The processes of stochastic project management are outlined and formally presented. These are the processes of project management organisation, the processes of project management support, processes of project content definition, processes of defining the resources, required for the project works, processes of project planning, processes of influence on contractors of actions (works).
