Schedule Updates and Monitoring
Accurate and proper updating of the project schedule is an essential step in monitoring any project. There are many facets to properly updating a project schedule including: inputting accurate as-built data; reflecting accurate percentages of completion; ensuring that the schedule logic comports with the contractor’s planned sequence of construction and project requirements and the identification of potential issues. For every update Aegis will:
- maintain a realistic schedule for management and field planning,
- ensure that progress shown is accurately depicted in terms of physical progress, costs and resources,
- ensure that the schedule meets the specification requirements, internal project requirements and good scheduling practices, and
- provide real-time feedback to the project team on past, on-going and prospective risks.
At Aegis, we recognize that our client’s time is limited, so we work hard to ensure that the update process focuses on results, not preparation. We are unique in our leverage of technology to assist with scheduling, and we have created innovative technology products to help schedulers.
Aegis’ services include detailed CPM schedule reviews, including for constructability, specification compliance and good scheduling practice. We also provide schedule reviews to determine the accuracy of the schedule as it relates to the construction drawings and the progress of field crews. Aegis can also review the cost and resource loading of a schedule against the plan and actual expenditures.
