Scheduling Methodologies and Approaches

Location:  PMKI > Project Controls and Scheduling > Scheduling Methodologies and Approaches. 

This subject looks at the wide range of scheduling methodologies and approaches to improving CPM scheduling currently available. Traditional ‘critical path’ scheduling is only one of the ways to develop a useful and effective schedule, and in many situations it is far from optimal.

  • Scheduling methodologies (other)
    • WP: Relationship Driven CPM. The RDCPM® variation of the Critical Path Method of schedule analysis focuses on the reason for the relationship between activities and the reason for their overlap.    
    • WP: Momentology. Momentology uses the schedule to measure the momentum of work on the project. The loss of momentum is a reliable predictor of a delayed completion.   
    • WP: Critical Chain. CCPM is a method of planning and managing projects that puts the main emphasis on the utilisation of the resources required to execute project tasks.    
    • WP: Line of Balance. LOB is a method of showing the repetitive work that may exist in a project as a single line on a graph and shows the rate at which the work has to be undertaken to stay on schedule.    
    • WP: Multiple Activity Charts. Multiple Activity Charts show the flow of work within a cyclical process and as a consequence show which resource is controlling the overall progress of the work.  
    • WP: Timeboxing. Timeboxing is a simple process used to measure the complete of a defined amount of work in a fixed period, plus or minus an allowed variation (the 'time box').           
  • Schedule levels & integration (major projects)
    • Schedule Levels provides a guide the 5 levels of schedule typically used on major projects.
