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.

Hi All;

Keeping the baseline unchanged,can we change the relationships in updated program based on the actual sequence off work ?

Hi AB

As Gary says - check your contract to see what that says.

Otherwise the Society of Construction Law Protocol 2002 and the CIOB Guide to Best Practice in Time Control of Complex Projects both describe the proper use of the baseline programme.

Some contracts / clients require the updated programmes submitted to them to have no changes in logic or durations, and no new or deleted activities. (or any such changes to be approved in advance)

This is in my view a very bad idea, since they are virtually guaranteeing themselves a false picture of project performance. However it is relatively common, so read your contract carefully to acertain wether this is the case for your project or not. -We cannot tell you.

 

Cheers,

Hi AB

Providing that the original programme is maintained and progress is reported on it for the engineer you can do whatever you wish on parallel programmes.

Best regards

If yes..Then me being a planner from contractor can adjust the float values that Consultant can never see.

And at the end would not it be difficult to perform delay analysis if logic in actual program is different than logic in the base line.Just a confusion in my mind that needs to be solved.

Why not?
