Overview

Construction Planning and Scheduling, Fourth Edition offers broad coverage of all major scheduling subjects. This comprehensive resource is designed for construction management, planning and scheduling. It follows a logical progression, introducing precedence diagramming early and following with chapters on activity durations, resource allocations, network schedules, and more. It reflects current trends in scheduling (short-interval scheduling, computer scheduling, linear scheduling etc.) and includes chapters on arrow diagramming and PERT. With an eye on application, it includes a unique discussion of contract provisions related to scheduling and incorporates a sample project throughout.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The author proposes that the effective use of construction schedules begins with a viable network model. After an initial consideration of arrow diagramming, he focuses on precedence diagrams in the remainder of the discussion. Topics include accurate time estimates for activity duration, contract provisions, the impact of scheduling on cash flow, resource leveling and allocation, computer applications, earned value concepts, short-interval and linear scheduling, and probabilistic duration estimates.
