 CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULING PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES

CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULING PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES


Anyone involved in the management of projects will find this text useful; however, it is written specifically for managers in the construction industry and for students preparing for management positions. Therefore, the examples are construction related. However,this text would be extremely helpful to anyone in a project management position in manufacturing, engineering, computer and software design, technology, military, or business management.

This is a comprehensive textbook that can be the sole reference for learning the basics of project management scheduling. This is due to the fact that it contains not only the necessary information to learn scheduling and project management principles but also information to help learn the project management software that has become the standard in the industry: Microsoft Project, Primavera Project Planner (P3), SureTrak, and P6 Project Manager and Contractor. Students need help learning the software as well as learning the basics of scheduling.

It is not sufficient to teach the basics of scheduling and then expect students to have success with the software by opening the door to the computer lab and assuming they will learn it. It is also not sufficient to teach the software without first knowing the basics of scheduling and project management. Project management software is more difficult to learn than word processing, spreadsheet, or PowerPoint presentations; people need help with practical, essential, and concise information to help them to become proficient users.

When students graduate, they may work for an owner who requires the use of P6 or Contractor, while another owner may require the use of SureTrak, and another, P3 or Microsoft Project. Project managers of the future need help in learning to effectively use all four programs. This is a complete text including practice problems and exercises to help learn and apply the principles of project management.

The construction industry is becoming more sophisticated and professional. There is a critical need for professionals who can successfully plan, organize, direct, and control construction operations for the successful completion of quality projects on time, within budget, in a safe work environment, and without any claims. Projects are becoming more complex, and owners want them done more quickly and at less cost.

There is a lot of pressure to learn how to become more proficient at doing this. There is a greater need today than ever before to do a better job at preplanning projects to insure greater success for all parties involved. This book helps managers learn techniques that will help them to accomplish this.
