9781259587276: CPM in Construction Management, Eighth Edition

Advance Your Construction Projects with CPM and this Fully Updated Guide

 

Plan, schedule, and manage construction projects using the critical path method (CPM) and the practical information contained in this thoroughly revised book. Written by two experienced engineers and authors, CPM in Construction Management, Eighth Edition, explains the evolution of CPM and fully covers the latest techniques, standards, and tools. The “John Doe” case study is used throughout to illustrate important functions, including acquiring and building the logic plan, navigation and best use of multiple software products, updating, cost control, resource planning, and delay evaluation.


This updated, hands-on guide shows how CPM:


· Works―and how to make it work for you
· Serves as the analytical tool of choice for evaluation, negotiation, resolution, and/or litigation of construction claims
· Cuts costs in a one-person operation or the most complex multinational enterprise
· Helps you stay on top of every aspect of complicated projects
· Saves big money in delay avoidance, accurate cost predictions, and claims reductions
· Multiplies the effectiveness of your instincts, experience, and knowledge
· Can be successfully implemented by properly utilizing the power of leading scheduling software products

Access to electronic content includes:


· A full-feature copy of Deltek’s Open Plan CPM software―a $2000 value
· Sample files of the “John Doe” project readable by a variety of software products
· Full color and scalable copies of all screenshots contained in the text
· Additional legacy and up-to-the-moment chapters
