- Integrated 4D Model Development for Planning and Scheduling of a Construction Project using Geographical Information System. Naik, Gopal M.; Aditya, M.; Naik, Suman B. // International Proceedings of Economics Development & Research;2011, Vol. 15, following p280
The current day demand of construction industry requires a highly accurate planning, scheduling and management of the process of the project which can enable the overall optimization of the cost, time and resources. The older system of usage of MS Project and Primavera for scheduling, AutoCAD...
- Integrating with Project Schedule Risk Improves Analysis of Cost Risk. Hulett, David T.; Druker, Eric // AACE International Transactions;2014, p1
The main benefits of integrated cost-schedule risk analysis are in its (1) improvement of the estimates of cost risk and (2) identification of the main risks to cost, including risks to schedule that imply risks to cost, for mitigation purposes. Schedule risk is important in itself, but when...
- An Approach for Project Scheduling Using PERT/CPM and Petri Nets (PNs) Tools. Boushaala, Amer A. // Proceedings of the International Conference on Industrial Engine;2014, p939
The Petri Nets are more powerful models as compared to the PERT/CPM charts. The Petri Nets show the same type of scheduling constraints as the PERT/CPM charts does. We can easily convert a PERT/CPM networks to a Petri Net model. This work shows how to use Petri net's for modeling and verifying...
- The Necessity of Project Schedule Updating/Monitoring/Statusing. // Cost Engineering;Jul2003, Vol. 45 Issue 7, p8
Many people and companies have learned the value of planning and scheduling for management of projects. However, some fall short when it comes to committing resources, time and money, to periodically check a properly planned schedule to see if everything is being done according to the...
