Compressing the Project/Contract ScheduleDuration: 1 Day 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Continuing Education Hours: 8
Students will learn the "best practices" methods for dealing with the often-cited problem in contract and project management - the schedule. This course first reviews the popular ways of producing a schedule during planning for a contract or project (including the case where there is significant uncertainty), and then covers a methodology for assessing the likelihood of success of the schedule. Techniques are then covered which address ways to compress the schedule realistically to both identify any additional resources and the timing of those needed resources. The course then shifts to execution and examines the common causes of schedule difficulties during that critical phase. Students then cover approaches for assessing alternatives when faced with a schedule slip. Techniques for compressing the schedule (making up time and shortening the duration) are covered in depth including fast tracking and resource optimization (crashing). Common causes of schedule difficulties and popular remedies are covered through a combination of lecture/discussion and in-class exercises.
