Scheduling Practices and Project Success

Scheduling Practices and Project Success” by Dr. Andrew Griffith, PE.

This study looks at a variety of capital process industry project schedules, focusing on the practices used during schedule development with four measures; cost performance and schedule performance related to industry benchmarks, cost growth over baseline budget, schedule slip over baseline schedule. The data analysis identified four project schedule characteristics that correlated with “positive and significant project outcome metrics”; integration of all phases into a single schedule, application of CPM, resource loading of the schedule, and detailed review of the schedule by the project team.
