How to avoid common scheduling mistakes

With many projects to complete in a limited amount of time, accurate scheduling is crucial for success.

Project planning services form the core of our business. Our team are experienced with all project management software programs and have created added value for the exceptional delivery of many building projects.

This experience has shown us that there are many common mistakes made when creating programmes, for example:

  • Incorrect use of constraints impacting the critical path
  • Linking summary headings and affecting programme logic
  • Having manually scheduled tasks within the programme

These common mistakes make a big difference to the logic of the programme and can impact EOT claims in the future.

That is why we work with our clients to improve their basic fundamental knowledge of planning software tools. Our courses have been developed using our experience. Course participants learn how to create a new schedule or take ownership of an existing schedule and to adjust, resource, monitor and revise that schedule over the life of a project. Classes are delivered by experienced construction planning specialists.

We offer face-to-face CDP courses for Powerproject, Microsoft Project, Sketch Up for the Construction Industry and Synchro Software. This year we have trained over 300 construction professionals that work in project related roles in the construction industry and helped them to create exceptional project schedules.
