The first two parts of this series analyzed the root causes of project delays and proposed strategies to avoid schedule overruns. This final part reviews construction planning.
One cause of poor construction planning is the belief that construction scheduling is very similar to that of engineering and procurement. Engineering activities have only two constraints: predecessor design activities and human resources.
In contrast, construction activities have a larger number of constraints, such as:
Predecessor construction activities
Machinery and supplies provided by the subcontractor
Drawings and documents provided by engineering
