Progress reporting provides the opportunity to analyze the current status of the project. Often, this will lead to rescheduling and corrective action to bring the project back within specified time parameters. This cycle of planning and executing activities, measuring and reporting progress, revising the plan based on current status, and updating the schedule is continued repetitively throughout the project.
 
In this interactive, online course, we’ll focus on managing the ongoing project. We begin by looking at detailed schedules used by the field supervisor to plan crew work on specific activities in the near term. Then we move on to measurement and reporting of progress.
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the role of the field supervisor in planning and executing day‐to‐day activities 
  • Identify how the application of lean principles lead to improved production 
  • Describe the use of progress measurements and progress reporting 
  • Discuss the importance of continually updating the plan and schedule to reflect current job status
