Construction Scheduling With Primavera P6 Pdf
Project scheduling is one of the vital factors that contributes to a project’s success or failure. A project schedule provides a pathway towards the completion of a project as scheduled, and continuous feedback on how the project is progressing. However, schedule controllers are often frustrated when their schedules are impeded by unexpected events, or at colleagues’ failure to comprehend their schedules correctly and communicate with schedulers efficiently.
Thus, a primary concern of schedulers today involves developing comprehensive schedules as early as possible, and using them efficiently to best communicate with their clients and colleagues. Furthermore, a good schedule has to provide schedulers and project management team members with an opportunity to anticipate any risks so that the project management team can prepare countermeasures to mitigate them.
This book focuses on planning and scheduling for construction projects and presents field-site-based best practices related to schedule management and Primavera P6, and offers strategies that utilise scheduling methodologies and tools. These strategies are based on the theory of schedule management and features of scheduling software packages, which can be applied in every field site no matter what the construction project type is. This book introduces examples and tips, as well as suggestions for developing efficient schedules and management methods that ensure immediate improvement in schedule controlling. This book is designed to be Primavera P6 user-friendly, so readers using P6 can understand P6-based schedule management with ease.
This book covers all matters schedulers should know and understand regarding schedule management. It also includes the missing manuals of schedule management textbooks and Primavera P6 manuals. Therefore, I recommend that those who want to be a skilled scheduler make use of this book, along with schedule management textbooks and Primavera P6 manuals.

As a scheduling engineer and project planner, he worked on the construction of the Korea High-Speed Line (an 11 billion USD project) and other sizeable railway construction projects, cooperating with the staff of Bechtel, Inc. Between 2011 and 2012, he studied for a master’s degree in Railway System Engineering and Integration at the University of Birmingham, UK. His master’s dissertation, entitled “Time Management in Railway Construction Projects”, explored efficient ways to develop and control the master schedule of railway construction projects, and earned him the University of Birmingham’s award for Best Technical Dissertation.
Based on his vast experience of project schedule planning and controlling, he published a book on the subject in 2014, entitled “How Railway Systems Work”, which introduces various basic knowledge of railway and railway construction project planning and controlling methods. The book was adopted as a textbook by Woosong University in South Korea. In December 2014 and March 2015, he conducted lectures for government officials at the Egypt Railway School, which were organised by the Egyptian government. The theme of these lectures was managing construction schedules for efficient railway construction projects.
