Construction Project Scheduling


Basic understanding of engineering and infrastructure projects


Major infrastructure projects involve thousands of people coming together to complete a set of activities in a specific order. This messy and complicated to manage. Working for a contractor, a client is paying your company a fixed fee to ensure all these activities are completed in a specified time period. If the works are not complete in this period, your company may be up for hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars in delay charges. This course is designed for junior engineers and other construction management professionals entering the construction industry and will teach you the tools and techniques construction management professionals use to ensure their projects finish on time. Learn the purpose and value of construction scheduling, how to develop, monitor, and control the project schedule, and the different types of schedules used on construction projects. The course is practical, simple, and easy to follow with practice activities to reinforce everything you learn during the course.Section 1 of the course focuses on defining project scheduling and introducing you to the concept. It’s all about getting you comfortable with the content you’ll be learning. Section 2 is about how to develop the project schedule. This is where we define all the work to be done, schedule and link these activities, and estimate durations. Once this schedule is created, section 3 then focuses on monitoring and controlling the schedule. This means comparing planned performance to actual performance. In section 4, the final section, we look at the different types and styles of schedules used on construction projects.
