The Master Schedule
At the onset of a project, a Master Schedule is developed that “estimates” the length of the project and establishes key tasks and milestones, identifies critical path items and becomes the communication tool to sub-contractors, vendors and clients as to a projects’ progress. The established Master Schedule becomes the baseline and gets adjusted and updated throughout the life cycle of the project as unknown designs and other variables become known.
There are a number of impacts that can affect a schedule, which include labor force availability, material delivery, weather, re-work, client or agency change, and even the unforeseen that we are all experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic. the essence of scheduling is to adapt, overcome, communicate, and prevail.
