9780071849234: Critical Path Method (CPM) Tutor for Construction Planning and Scheduling

This unique tool provides a fresh approach to construction scheduling by focusing on ways in which the Critical Path Method (CPM) can be used to answer the important questions that arise on virtually every construction project.

Critical Path Method (CPM) Tutor for Construction Planning and Scheduling helps commercial contractors meet today’s ever-increasing demands to improve operational efficiency and increase profitability. The construction schedule is heavily dependent upon the skill of the practitioner and responsible participants, and one which greatly impacts the efficiency, cost, and overall success or failure of a project.

This book explains the practical application of the CPM, the most widely used and taught technique for construction planning and scheduling. You’ll be guided through each step of the CPM process--from planning and communication to deciding payment and/or claims. Practitioners and students will quickly understand both the mechanics and the use of the CPM. Contractors will be able to apply this knowledge to plan their work more completely, better communicate their plans, accurately evaluate the impact of delays, and make better on-the-spot decisions.

  • Features real-world construction examples and worked problems
  • Describes how to measure on-site/field productivity and address potential issues
  • Shows how to effectively communicate progress, targets, and requests with subcontractors and stakeholders

Product Description:

Speed progress payments, reduce claims, and increase profitability using the Critical Path Method

Critical Path Method (CPM) Tutor for Construction Planning and Scheduling explains the practical application of the CPM and guides you through each step of the process—from planning and communication to deciding payment and/or claims. The book focuses on the Arrow Diagram Method and the Precedence Diagram Method, the two most widely used scheduling methods.

A sample project for planning a mid-rise building applies the concepts presented in the book. Hands-on exercises and discussions illustrate how to create schedules from activity lists. The effective and consistent use of the techniques introduced in this detailed guide will allow you to:

  • Reduce progress payment disputes and speed progress payment
  • Plan resources for maximum productivity
  • Predict owner-caused and weather delays
  • Develop “get well” plans for projects that fall behind
  • Correctly update progress, including out-of-sequence activities
  • Meet contracts requiring CPM schedules
  • Evaluate change and claim impacts; develop admissible documentation

About the Author:

William East, PhD, PE, F.ASCE, has worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over the past three decades, first as a project engineer and then as a research program manager. His evaluation of the first PC-based scheduling systems resulted in the Standard Data Exchange Format, which delivers earned-value loaded schedules on Corps of Engineers’ projects. Dr. East’s website is cpmTutor.com.
