Texas

Performed a schedule quality assurance review. Reviewed and critiqued a consortium partner’s detailed fabrication schedules.

Provided guidance on “best practice” recommendations for on-site schedule control, progress reporting, schedule development, and labor productivity. Recommended suitable effective documentation and record keeping to aid in the support or defense of possible future claims and integration of schedule activities with available cost details to accurately establish the cause and effect relationship among problems, issues, events, schedule impacts, productivity losses, and cost overruns and/or the need for acceleration/mitigation recovery countermeasures.
