Overview

Two important scheduling techniques for modern construction management—the precedence technique and the arrow technique—are developed and analyzed. The parallel treatment of these two applications presents a basis of theory and practice for the civil engineering student and the practicing project manager. Introduces the concept of the scheduling plan as a design process. Shows the steps for developing the list of activities as the basis for any networking technique. Gives computations for arrow and precedence diagrams. Covers practical techniques for making time-cost adjustments to early start schedules. Concludes with discussion of applications of techniques in the context of real-life projects.
