Average Rating

4 27
Did you know production planning begins well before the project is mobilized in the field and continues throughout the project until all field operations are closed out? Production planning is concerned with how project activities are going to be carried out. It establishes the methods to be used, the assignment of personnel, the movement of material to the workface, and the process of assembling the pieces. This interactive online course considers all resources that contribute to the job, including personnel, materials, construction equipment, the site, the environment, and anything else that might affect the job. It will also cover the lean construction process and BIM, which is beginning to change the way construction is managed and organized.
