Explaining both simple and difficult concepts through examples and its easily-read style, this complete book should support any needs the professional has on the job. Particular attention is paid to the concepts most frequently used in industry practice, in order to produce the best book possible on the subject of effective scheduling. Topics covered emphasize: precedence network diagramming; resource allocation; monitoring; control; as well as report generation and interpretation. An excellent reference and learning tool for project managers, project engineers, project control specialists, or supervisors.
