About the class 

This class is a basic overview of construction scheduling—covers critical path, flow of work, schedule updates and schedule components. Includes a practice workshop. NOT a software class.

 By the end of this class, participants will better understand:

  • The basics of scheduling
  • Why we use a schedule
  • How to logically set the flow of work for a project, set up durations and other essential schedule components. 
  • What is the “critical path” of a schedule?
  • Can the “critical path” change on a schedule?
  • Why is the “flow of the work” on the schedule so important?
  • Why update a schedule?
  • What causes the schedule to be updated?
  • How to use the schedule as a daily tool to monitor the progress of the work
  • How to motivate contractors when they fall behind

The second half of the class is a practice workshop in which students will work through an actual project schedule. Using a sample schedule, students will:

  • Set up activities in a logical sequence
  • Establish durations
  • Set predecessors and successors
