Share Article

The two-part, five-hour webinar series is suited for various professionals in the construction community, including contractors, design builders, owners, architects, and engineers. Each webinar session has been approved for 2.5 American Institute of Architects learning units.

An upcoming WPL Publishing training course will provide plenty of valuable information for professionals who need to create construction schedules or make improvements to them.

The program will outline the process of creating a Critical Path Method (CPM) schedule for a construction project and offer advice for improving the quality of such a schedule. The course also will take attendees one step beyond the basics of construction CPM scheduling and cover the Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM), including the use of lags and leads with the four types of logical relationships. The course additionally will address resource loading and resource leveling in CPM schedules. To register for the course, which will consist of two 2.5-hour webinar sessions -- one taking place Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012, and the other occurring Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012 (each session beginning at 1:00 p.m. EDT) -- visit http://tinyurl.com/9qgxqs8.

  • Identify how to break a construction schedule into activities for creating a CPM schedule.
  • Estimate durations and set up the logical relationships in a CPM schedule.
  • Improve the quality of a construction project schedule.
  • Better understand PDM, including the use of lags and leads with the four types of logical relationships.
