Course objective IntroductionThis course masterclass in Primavera P6 aims to learn how construction project planning and scheduling efforts will be enhanced and optimized to achieve better profits, business value, and benefits using drag and cost techniques.The critical Drag is the amount of time by which an item on the critical pad activity, constraint, or bottleneck is delaying the end of the project or, alternatively, the amount of time by which the project can be compressed by reducing the duration of any critical path item to zero.Stephen DeveauxIn the traditional project management processes, methods, tools, and techniques, as detailed in the PMBOK Guide, the focus is on the execution of the project to deliver the desired result. Delivering on time and within budget is usually an essential task of the project manager with his project team.But there is more to running projects such as:1. Enhancing the Business Value can be defined as a business value from their investments.2. Making a profit for the business is one of the essential goals concerning the existence and continuation of the company.3. Realizing more benefits: Benefits can be far more than you can define as making a profit and creating business value. Think about a shorter duration of delivering an infrastructure project to reduce traffic jams, shorter duration of tests and trials for medicines, and reducing mortality during health crises.
