Fundamentals of Construction Project Scheduling
Dr. William Ibbs
University of California at Berkeley and Ibbs Consulting
Scheduling is a critical part of construction project management today. It is used not only as a project control tool, but also as a reporting tool and as a base to support or argue claims. Understanding scheduling techniques, and the plans that underlie schedules is crucial for any project and project manager in today’s complex construction environment.
We should not confuse scheduling with planning. Scheduling is a much more precise activity that includes sequence of steps, duration, milestones and constraints. While planning allows to look at the project as a whole and determine the end goal, the scope of work and resources.
Listen to this program to learn fundamentals of schedules and scheduling, and help you and your staff understand how schedules work, how to read them and how to put them to use to ensure a successful project. This informative, 90-minute program covers:
- Definitions, types and values that go into schedules
- Gnatt charts, resource values, tasks, summaries, links, trackign and reports
- Different scheduling methodologies, especially CPM
- How contractors develop and maintain CPM schedules
