Review of Relevant Literature – Literature should be current within five years. (length as needed)
Analysis – Critical Thinking (length as needed)
Conclusions and Response to the Research Question (approximately 1 page)
Reference Page (not included in page count)
Some research questions for consideration are:
How can a project manager minimize the project life cycle impacts of engineering design changes issued during the execution phase?
How do project management ethics influence success or failure of a project?
What are the major challenges associated with organizing and managing a project team?
Define the “Four Pillars” of SMS and how it is applied to risk management. Assess its value within a “proactive and predictive” safety program.
Read the below article concerning project management in the defense industry:
In the Line of Fire (Links to an external site.) from Research Gate
Note: Select “Download full-text PDF.” The three short articles begin on the second page of the downloaded file.
First, review the Module 6 Readings and Resources material. Then, for this assignment, develop a two-page document, excluding cover sheet and reference page, which focuses on the project control phase management activities as related to this article by responding to the following question:
What are some of the challenges you would expect a project manager to experience in maintaining control of a large aerospace defense project?
All written assignments are to be prepared as scholarly documents in accordance with the current edition of the APA Manual. Student resources are not limited to the module resource materials. Additional research and inquiry are encouraged as well as original thought and critical thinking.
Your paper will automatically be evaluated through Turnitin when you submit your assignment in this activity. Turnitin is a service that checks your work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against a database of web pages, student papers, and articles from academic books and publications. Ensure that your work is entirely your own and that you have not plagiarized any material!
Save your assignment using a naming convention that includes your first and last name and the activity number (or descriiption). Do not add punctuation or special characters.
For this activity, explore bombers and fighters utilized in World War II and in contemporary wars of the Middle East starting Operations Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. Use information from a credible source and use your new knowledge gained from your course textbook readings to compare and contrast bombers and fighters used during these past and present wars (WWII vs. Operations Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm).
In your initial post (must be 150 words), show a clear connection between the news story/event and the course materials. If there is no connection to course materials, you will lose 40 points. State the title of the news story and include the link so that others can access the story. You may apply any lens you wish to use when constructing this assignment: historic, scientific, technological, engineering, or math. Summarize the story and explain the cause and effect relationships for your chosen area (lens) of aviation for this assignment. Be sure to use an in-text citation.
I would write about how the KF-21 is replacing the F-4 which was used in Desert Storm

Before the US entry into World War II, America produced relatively small numbers of military aircraft.
Research the Internet for information about American manufacture of military aircraft post Pearl Harbor. In your initial post, explain how America was able to manufacture so many different types of military aircraft and in such great numbers following Pearl Harbor.
The ideal original, primary posting should be approximately 150 words.

the feed back from previous week was: ” Be a bit more specific with your title. What are you addressing regarding the pilot shortage? Overall this is an applicable topic for your research paper. I think you have a good start at what to analyze and then base your recommendations off your findings. Your topic is approved.”
I have attached this week’s guidelines, please let me know if you have any questions!
Review the module material, and respond to the following question using the written format included in the instructions and support pages.

In this golden era there were many records set for distance, speed, and altitude; there have been multiple records set in various new aircraft in the same categories since that time.
For this activity, explore a selection of record setting events between the golden age and a later period of your choice. Use information from a credible source to compare and contrast your selection of record setting events for the Golden Age and the chosen period (within the last 180 days).
