Scheduling enables construction professionals to effectively manage projects, forecast completion dates, and communicate the overall construction plan.
Spire Managing Consultant, Jesus Schuldes, PSP, presented at the 2018 Houston Build Expo on both August 15th and 16th at the NRG Park Convention Center. The session titled Forecasting the Future: Effective Schedule Development and Management, provided guidelines on how to properly develop and manage a schedule throughout a construction project.
More specifically, the topics he covered included scheduling basics, developing a realistic baseline schedule, using critical path method (CPM) scheduling, revisions and updates to the schedule, and cost/resource loading and reporting. The session’s attendees consisted of owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and government agencies.
