11 SCHEDULING The scheduling method consists of four (4) stages: First stage:Review the tasks and break them down into activities and sub-activities with their associated resources that can be easily managed.Identifies dependencies among activities. Once the work of the SMEs is completed, theyDraw an initial schedule assuming unlimited resources.Second stage:Project team reviews the initial schedule.If the schedule is not satisfactory, project team may add more resources to reduce the duration of the project.
12 SCHEDULING CONT. Third stage: If the team is still not satisfied with the outcome of the second stage schedule, they may consider changing the construction methods and/or crashing some critical activities that require highly skilled/highly paid labor.Once the final schedule is produced it is given to the site engineer who will prepare the fourth schedule.Fourth stage:Prepared by the site engineer as “ One-week look ahead” and reviewed by project team
13 CONTROLLING The controlling follows two processes: Updating – obtaining the progress data from the site and update the plan.Monitoring – applying the “Earned Value” concept.Latifia follows a well organized system for controlling their projects.
