The Algorithmic as-built schedule

This presentation dispels the notion of the elusive as-built critical path and introduce the concept of the algorithmic as-built schedule. As demonstrated at the PMI Global Congress 2010, the fact is that the as-built critical path is alive and well left of the data date. With the primacy accorded to the as-built schedule, analysts may welcome the addition of the algorithmic as-built alternative, sourced from the fully progressed update, in revisions of RP 29R-03, the SCL Protocol, and ASCE 67-17.

Enhancing Stakeholder Understanding of Complex What-if Analysis

Large project schedules can be complex and hard to follow. Value is lost when project managers, leadership, or other stakeholders cannot understand the stories that these schedules are telling. Join Alexander Neary, Product Manager at PMA Consultants, for a demonstration of how our latest innovations at PMA Consultants can save contractors and owners significant time and make the critical insights on complex projects more understandable. We will demonstrate how schedulers — together with their stakeholders — can make real-time visual adjustments to a multi-thousand-activity schedule in just seconds, enabling better decision-making, communication, and a shared understanding within project teams. This presentation includes a live demo of the latest scheduling software developments and updates on the product roadmaps.

Master Schedule Development & Management Using NetPoint

Early project planning and scheduling are essential when it comes to laying a strong foundation for the successful execution of a project. In this session, Amanda DavyRomano and Matthew Helner will demonstrate the crucial role of NetPoint in the early validation and development of the master schedule for an active airport expansion project. This schedule has a tight construction timeframe and several risks that could be detrimental to the project, and it continues to be leveraged for interactive planning sessions and scenario planning. The use of NetPoint on this project has helped drive discussions, coordination, and decision-making efforts amongst stakeholders.
