Description

For freshman/sophomore courses in Scheduling/Project Control, in departments of Civil Engineering/Technology and Construction Management/Technology.This text thoroughly covers the topic of the need and use of project planning and scheduling in the construction industry. It approaches the subject-and its related terminology and techniques-from a conceptual viewpoint that reinforces students' learning with increasingly difficult levels of analytical problems. The book includes development of work breakdown structures, precedence grids, precedence network node diagrams, analytical methods for network solutions, resource scheduling, leveling and allocation, time-cost tradeoffs, and project-scheduling simulation with PERT application.show more

Review quote

"The overall order of the contents is logical. Having an introductory chapter that deals project management is useful. Then proceeding from WBS, to network plan, to network model, to computations, works well." - James Stein, Eastern Michigan University"The use of the townhouse case study is an excellent opportunity to make the material real." - John Jarchow, Pima Community Collegeshow more

Back cover copy

Intended for students and professionals in civil technology/engineering and construction management, Construction Project Planning and Scheduling presents complete coverage of the principles, techniques, and applications of all aspects of the scheduling process. "Some of the key features include: "Background discussion of the unique nature of scheduling construction projects and the need for sound, proven techniques.Coverage of the development and use of Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) as well as the transition from (WBS) to the elements of the project schedule.Use of real-world examples and applications to reinforce each scheduling principle.Informative illustrations and diagrams to support the text.Discussion of the development of Activity On the Node (RON) diagramming and scheduling techniques with multiple activity relationships.show more
