Preface

The intent of Construction Scheduling with Primavera Project Planner is to assist the user in developing a proficiency in construction planning and a working knowledge of Primavera Project Planner. In order for the reader to get the most out of this book, he or she should have an understanding of how construction projects are estimated and how they are assembled, and have a basic understanding of the Windows operating system. The chapter on estimating is included to develop terminology and to show the relationship between the estimate and the comprehensive construction plan. It is essential that the information developed for the estimate be presented in a fashion that can be easily used during the actual construction process.

This book is divided into three distinct sections. The first section addresses the development and manual calculations of the construction schedule. The middle section is an introduction to Primavera Project Planner. The final section addresses project controls and how Primavera Project Planner can be used to enhance decision making. This book is intended to impart a practical hands-on perspective to the software reference manuals. After completing this book, the reader should have developed a proficiency in Primavera Project Planner and in construction project controls. Furthermore, the user should be able to customize Primavera Project Planner as necessary so as to effectively gauge project performance.

The suggested exercises at the end of each chapter provide practical applications. These exercises are cumulative, and upon completion of all these exercises, the user will have gone through a complete project simulation. Thissimulation will include both planning the project and monitoring the project through actual construction. The chapter discussion together with the simulation will enable users of this text to develop the skills needed to effectively manage construction projects.
