The definitive guide for using CPM in construction planning and scheduling—now thoroughly updated to reflect new technologies and procedures
Critical path method (CPM) is the most widely taught and used framework for construction project design, scheduling, and management. This new edition has been fully revised to cover the latest techniques, standards, and software tools. The book begins by describing the evolution of CPM and goes on to explain every technique and function in complete detail.
Written by a pair of experienced engineers and authors, CPM in Construction Management is designed so that you will save time, cut costs, reduce claims, and stay on top of every aspect of complicated projects. Central to the book is the “John Doe” case study, which describes CPM network techniques and illustrates functions such as updating, cost control, resource planning, and delay evaluation. All-new guidelines are provided for multiple software platforms, including Oracle, Deltek, Microsoft, Trimble Vico and Synchro.
