Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Activity-based scheduling or Location-based scheduling Survey

Please copy this link into a browser

Please note that this is not a formal test on the programs but just a personal survey I’m doing for my final project.

Best regards

Control and MS Project are not the only tools for Activity-based and Locations-based scheduling. Our company’s Tokmo Production System includes both approaches. I noticed that even though Location-based scheduling provides a great view of the production rates (for projects with repetitive nature, i.e. residential tower, or road-building, or pipelines) the willingness of construction managers to implement it is very low. Most of them don’t even want to load labor resources. Another benefit for location-based scheduling is identification of scheduling conflicts related to crew interference (i.e. two teams plan to use Room 101 on Nov 11), and even that is not attractive enough for many contractors. But it’ll go mainstream at some point, like NavisWorks is now mainstream for BIM clash coordination.
