Construction Project Management: Project Scheduling Applications

2 hrs. Online Course

Level: Intermediate

Item#: RV-11402

SME: S. Sears

Average Rating

4 23
In previous courses in this series, we focused more on tactical use of the schedule to manage specific components of the project, such as production, time, resources, and costs. In this interactive, online course, we’ll consider strategic scheduling applications as they relate to the overall project, including legal aspects of the schedule. This course considers the role of the schedule and the variety of operational schedules available to the project manager. It also discusses the ways scheduling information can be organized and presented.
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the key role the schedule plays in construction 
  • Identify ways to sort and present scheduling data 
  • Describe how to develop line‐of‐balance schedules to represent repetitive projects 
  • Identify the legal ramifications of the schedule for all parties 
  • Identify ways to anticipate and mitigate the effects of weather on the project
