Preface to Construction Scheduling With Primavera P6 PDF

Project scheduling is one of the vital factors that contribute to a project’s success or failure. A project schedule provides a pathway towards the completion of a project as scheduled, and continuous feedback on how the project is progressing.

However, schedule controllers are often frustrated when their schedules are impeded by unexpected events, or at colleagues’ failure to comprehend their schedules correctly and communicate with schedulers efficiently.

Thus, a primary concern of schedulers today involves developing comprehensive schedules as early as possible and using them efficiently to best communicate with their clients and colleagues.

Furthermore, a good schedule has to provide schedulers and project management team members with an opportunity to anticipate any risks so that the project management team can prepare countermeasures to mitigate them.

This book focuses on planning and scheduling for construction projects and presents field-site-based best practices related to schedule management and Primavera P6, and offers strategies that utilize scheduling methodologies and tools.

These strategies are based on the theory of schedule management and features of scheduling software packages, which can be applied in every field site no matter what the construction project type is.

This book introduces examples and tips, as well as suggestions for developing efficient schedules and management methods that ensure an immediate improvement in schedule control.

This book is designed to be Primavera P6 user-friendly, so readers using P6 can understand P6-based schedule management with ease. This book covers all matters schedulers should know and understand regarding schedule management.

It also includes the missing manuals of schedule management textbooks and Primavera P6 manuals. Therefore, I recommend that those who want to be skilled scheduler make use of this book, along with schedule management textbooks and Primavera P6 manuals.
