The detailed glossary of all applicable terms includes across-referenced listing of examples that describe real-worldapplications for each term supplied. An extensive bibliographycovers all applicable books, articles, and periodicals available onproject planning, scheduling, and control using CPM and relatedsubjects. This book is an important quick reference and desktop informationresource for construction planners, schedulers, and controllers, aswell as civil engineers and project managers.

Project Management with Dynamic Scheduling

ISBN : 3642404383
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

The topic of this book is known as dynamic scheduling, and is used to refer to three dimensions of project management and scheduling: the construction of a baseline schedule and the analysis of a project schedule’s risk as preparation of the project control phase during project progress. This dynamic scheduling point of view implicitly assumes that the usability of a project’s baseline schedule is rather limited and only acts as a point of reference in the project life cycle. Consequently, a project schedule should especially be considered as nothing more than a predictive model that can be used for resource efficiency calculations, time and cost risk analyses, project tracking and performance measurement, and so on. In this book, the three dimensions of dynamic scheduling are highlighted in detail and are based on and inspired by a combination of academic research studies at Ghent University (www.ugent.be), in-company trainings at Vlerick Business School (www.vlerick.com) and consultancy projects at OR-AS (www.or-as.be). First, the construction of a project baseline schedule is a central theme throughout the various chapters of the book, and is discussed from a complexity point of view with and without the presence of project resources. Second, the creation of an awareness of the weak parts in a baseline schedule is discussed at the end of the two baseline scheduling parts as schedule risk analysis techniques that can be applied on top of the baseline schedule. Third, the baseline schedule and its risk analyses can be used as guidelines during the project control step where actual deviations can be corrected within the margins of the project’s time and cost reserves. The second edition of this book has seen corrections, additions and amendments in detail throughout the book. Moreover Chapter 15 on "Dynamic Scheduling with ProTrack" has been completely rewritten and extended with a section on "ProTrack as a research tool".

Book Description :

With new project management trends settling in and the ease of project management tools, here are three items each project manager can concentrate on for their efforts to get excellence out of. Visually map tasks to plan better One of the reasons behind project failure is because you can't prioritize, delegate, and track tasks. It is very hard to write down all the tasks ahead and then write down the dates with the names of the people responsible for them. If you chart your task visually with the help of a project calendar then you will still stay top of your projects. When you have a project schedule in front of you, it's easy to see how many tasks a day can handle, who will pick up tasks on a given day, and the next day or week's possible tasks. Here are the benefits you get by visualizing your goals and tasks: The project calendar assists in the delivery of activities during the month. This way you don't clutter the activities and you are putting an undue burden on your team or yourself. It also lets you test the timelines and keep one step ahead of your goals. Visually organizing tasks not only helps to deliver uniform work but also strengthens teamwork among team members. When you see an upcoming mission visually, and who it is assigned to, communicating with that team or member becomes easy. Likewise, the team should be precognitive and knowledgeable about the tasks.
