Planning & Scheduling in the Industrial Environment New

Learn how to create and use one of the most valuable project management tools: a project schedule.  Defining project success often involves completing on time and on budget, and project budgets are often driven by resource costs and the scheduling of those resources.

This course will prepare you to develop project schedules for new ship construction and ship repair projects. You will learn to identify and value critical path and float, use standard scheduling terminology, update and track project schedules, intricacies of resource loading and levelling, prepare performance reports, and use earned value management to identify changes.

With these valuable skills, project managers and planners will have improved control of their projects as they will be able to identify the full effect of the unexpected and the full impact of scope changes on their project schedules.

Learning Objectives:

  • Create effective project schedules                               
  • Implement project schedule controls
