A practical treatise on the processes and standards required for the effective time management of major construction projects
This book uses logical step-by-step procedures and examples from inception and risk appraisal--through design and construction to testing and commissioning--to show how an effective and dynamic time model can be used to manage the risk of delay in the completion of construction projects. Integrating with the CIOB major projects contract, the new edition places increased emphasis on the dynamic time model as the way to manage time and cost in major projects, as opposed to the use of a static target baseline program. It includes a new chapter distinguishing the principal features of the dynamic time model and its development throughout the life of a project from inception to completion.
Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Time in Major Projects--Dynamic Time Modelling, 2nd Edition features new appendices covering matters such as complexity in construction and engineering projects, productivity guides (including specific references to the UK, Australia, and the USA), and a number of case studies dealing with strategic time management and high-density, resource-based scheduling.
* Provides guidance for the strategic management of time in construction and civil engineering projects
* Demonstrates how to use a dynamic time model to manage time pro-actively in building and civil engineering projects
* Sets out processes and standards to be achieved ensuring systematic documentation and quality control of time management
* Integrates with the CIOB major projects contract
Guide to Good Practice in the Management of Time in Major Projects--Dynamic Time Modelling, 2nd Edition is an ideal handbook for project and program management professionals working on civil engineering and construction projects, including those from contractors, clients, and project management consultants.
