He started his career as an architectural technician but swiftly moved into design and then construction management, with particular emphasis on scheduling multiple location commercial refit projects and coordinating both design and build operations under compromised working conditions. This introduction led him to start using graphics packages to help produce visual planning guides, leading to the development of the PAL package of tools for use in 4D planning. He was involved with the formation of A3D in 1999 and is a leading figure in the development of 4D Planning and Coordination for the Construction Industry.

    Experience has included commercial, industrial, governmental, and residential projects, buildings as well as infrastructure and boats.

    Chris is also lecturing in the Construction Management Department at NMMU and looking at including BIM planning as part of honours and post graduate studies in Construction Management.

    He has also travelled extensively working on projects from South Africa to the Sudan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and UK. He is active in educating the broader Project and Construction Management industry on the use of new technology to improve on project delivery and has published a treatise titled ‘Improving Construction Planning through 4D Planning’, achieving a Highly Commended Award from Emerald Group Publishing JEDT.

  • Abkar Bannayan
    Jan 1991

    I have extensive experience in project controls (planning, scheduling, cost controls and cost estimates) in addition to a solid experience in PMBOK with thorough understanding of their processes and practical application. Implemented the earned value concept through C/SCSC (Cost/ Schedule Controls System Criteria) successfully in many projects. In addition to the applied planning & scheduling techniques utilized Primavera Project Planner P3 (V3.1) and P6 features (fragnets, global changes, project group, sub-projects, what-if analysis and resource loading) to develop cost/ schedule baselines through task-driven and resource-driven schedules.

    I have excellent communication and interpersonal skills demonstrated and developed by listening and liaising with the project management team, all disciplines leads and contractors that contributed in settling the areas of concern effectively. I can handle projects meeting time pressures according the specifications within the budgets. Able to take a pro-active role within the project management team and analyze & reason, combined with a willingness to increase my technical knowledge with additional studies, I have been enabled to develop a sharp experience in project controls.

    My experience spans over Twenty years in Canada and overseas for various industry sectors including Oil & Gas and Marine.

    Fluent in English and Arabic.

  • Richard Beazley
    Apr 1978

    Richard started his career as a planner in 1978 at the Military Vehicle Establishment in Surrey, UK, helping to develop the next battle tank, and quickly learned how not to run a project. It overran cost and schedule so badly it was cancelled! It was at this time he learned Artemis (on system No.2 !) or Apollo as it was then called, which effectively guaranteed him employment for the next 20 years. MVEE used ICL PERT and barcharts were lengths of colored tape stuck to the page!

    His break came in 1982 when appointed as Lead Planner on a project in Saudi Arabia….here’s a piece of desert, build a city! Great experience, a 20,000 activity network on Artemis, with the $300m contract value spread across the activities, and the monthly invoice was an activity listing, allocated $ value, percentage complete and thus earned value! A 20mb storage disc was 12 inches in diameter and one inch thick, for the old HP 1000 machine!

    Subsequently he has worked in Holland, USA, Qatar, Sarawak, Germany, UK, France, Iran, UAE, Oman, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Thailand 2005-2010, and currently Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    Of all the projects he’s worked on, the two that stand out are the European Transonic Windtunnel in Cologne, because it is the only one of it’s kind, operating at -270o C and Mach 1.5, and a one week assignment to advise on planning systems became three very fruitful years, and the Airport Railway in Hong Kong, 1994-1998, completed on time, and arguably within budget.

    Richard got his MBA in 2003 after two very intense years studying out of hours in Hong Kong, and became Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers in July 2011

    Richard has a Filipina wife and a young son.

    Skills: Richard firmly believes that if a planner knows the principles of his profession they can be applied to any project, so in the last 25 years he has been able to switch between Petrochem and Rail projects. This can be an advantage when job hunting. He is also very much a hands on planner who tries to handle the whole spectrum from data entry to Board presentations.

  • David Burton
    Oct 1987

    David is currently working in the UK. He has a professional, pragmatic and structured approach to Planning complex programmes that has evolved over a 30 year period and his expertise has been developed within and applied to many Industrial and Commercial environments including Aerospace, Process Controls, IT, Automotive, Defence, Power Industry as well as others.

    Supported by a strong System Engineering, Programme Management and Change Management background and experiences at all stages of implementation have permitted the development of a multi faceted approach to the challenges of optimising Programme Planning deployment and maintenance. The approach followed has been to apply Structured Programme Planning techniques using such tools as P6, Suretrak and Project, then applying active Risk Management, formal Gate Review processes and the use of planned metrics, including Earned Value, to assess the real time status of Programme implementation.

    David’s particular interest is the promotion of predictive scheduling techniques to facilitate early warning of threats and to ensure dependencies are aligned prior to activity execution.

  • Raphael M. Dua
    Jan 1962

    Raphael M. Dua has been working for the past 55 years in the Project Management field as both a Planning & Cost Scheduling Engineer and a Project Manager/Director. He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors a Member of the Australian Institute of Project Management. In addition he is a member of the Australian Computer Society (was also member of the British and New Zealand Computer Societies) as a PCP as well as an Associate Member of the British Institute of Management. He was Federal Vice-President of Defence And Industry Course Association and is currently a councillor. He is a member of the PMI COS and PMI EVPM groups.

    Raf spent almost 32 years with the British Computer Company International Computers Ltd (ICL) [Now Fujitsu in Australia and New Zealand], in various parts of the world; where he co-authored the entire Critical Path & PERT software packages ICL produced from 1958 to 1984. These were ICT 1300 Series PERT, ICT 1500 Series PERT, ICT 1900 Series PERT, ME29 PERT, 2004 PERT, VME PERT being the last one in 1983. During the years from 1959 until 1983, Raf contributed to the many original ideas in CPM technology invented BY ICT, such as Pool Resources, Progressive Feed (Ladders) and Hammocks and the Short Path Node. As well as Multi Sub Project Resource Scheduling using Decision Tables. Raf was seconded from BTM (as ICL was in those days) to work with Kelly & Walker (the original authors of the Critical Path technique) in 1956/7 and later with Booz Allen Hamilton (the originators of the PERT technique) on the Fleet Ballistic Weapons Program (Polaris) project for the US Navy in 1958 - 60. (RCA 301 PERT).

    From 1978 he consulted to Micro Planning International Ltd in the UK for the development and production of Micro Planner X-Pert for MAC and Windows.

    In addition to designing and writing project management software: Raf has spent many years consulting as a cost schedule and planning engineer to both government and private companies on projects too numerous to mention. Some major projects were Bougainville Copper Mine for Bechtel Corp and CRA, Nuclear Power stations for the CEGB in UK. The electrification of British Rail Eastern Region; Construction of the Oberon Class Submarines for Scotts’ Dockyard in Scotland which culminated with 22 years of submarine refitting of the Oberon’s at Cockatoo Dockyard in Sydney. In addition many major warship construction and refit projects for the RAN, RN and RNZN were also managed and scheduled. Raf used ICL’s CPM/PERT software from 1960 to 1986 to manage projects in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and throughout many other Asian countries for a wide range of ICL clients both private and government.

    Since 1966 he has lectured extensively in Europe, Australia and New Zealand at various universities as both Senior Lecturer and lately at University of Melbourne as Visiting Fellow in Building, Architecture and Planning for the Masters degree in Construction Management.

    He has contributed to several books as well as being a co-chairman of the Australian Standards committee on Earned Value performance Measurement, culminating in the AS4817:2006 standard being published and is currently a committee member of the ISO/CD 21500 Standard for Project Management.

    From late 2002 for four years Raf was the Senior Planner and Scheduler for the NZ government Department of Corrections RPDP project which had a budget of $NZ1.1 billion. This project was unusual in that it was located on four disparate and rural sites across both the North and South Islands. The project was both a Collaborative Work Agreement (a better form of alliance) using Earned Value Methodology. It was a first for New Zealand as a Complex Project Management project and required an ability to work the RPDP Schedule & Plan with over 70 major collaborative partners as well as on 50 sub collaborative partners, some who were involved in more than one of the sites. Each of the sites involved water treatment plants and water reticulation pipe work to current best practice in water conservation. Both Micro Planner and P3 software was used on this project. All the four projects opened up on time and somewhat less than budget as the Gainshare option was invoked.

    From Nov 2006 until Jul 2007 Raf was the Senior Planner and Scheduler for the Eastern Alliance of the Queensland Government’s Western Corridor Recycled Water project using P3 and Suretrack in Brisbane. This project consisted of three stages and Raf was responsible for the establishment of the master plan for all three stages as well as the detailed planning for Stage 1a. The project consisted of over 90Kms of pipeline with water treatment plants as well as pump station. It consisted of trenching and micro tunnelling and HDD boring. The value of stage 1A was expected to be approximately $150 million. In addition to the planning, site project procedures were set up for other planners to follow later in the project.

    From July 2007 Raf was been contracted by Boeing Australia Limited to provide Planning and Scheduling consulting and training for the F-111 Strike Maintenance project. In addition he will be developing a Planners and Schedulers manual specifically for Boeing Australia Limited. This work was completed by late June 2008 and Micro Planner X-Pert for Windows was used for developing schedules and the EVPM.

    Since 2008 until now he is consulting as Lead/ Senior Planner and Scheduler for the new Orange Hospital and Associates Health Services project with a value of $AUD235 million and a thirty month building duration in New South Wales.

    Since January 2010, Raf has become the sole owner of Micro Planning International LLC after retirement of some of the other original owners.
