Average Rating

4 13
How would you account for weather delays in a construction project schedule? What about the availability of labor and equipment? How much time should you allow for each subcontractor to complete their work?
 
In this interactive online course, we’ll answer those questions. You’ll learn how to determine the duration for individual activities and the calculation process for project times. Through examples, you’ll discover new terminology for scheduling, including early and late start and finish, float, critical activities, and lag time. You’ll then convert the project days-based schedule into calendar dates. We’ll also discuss the pros and cons of the bar chart in construction project scheduling and how computer applications can save time and provide an array of project data in various forms.
