Description
To understand project progress, one must examine and understand all aspects of project controls. Not only must each aspect be analyzed, but also how they are related to and dependent on each other. This thorough and interactive project controls course teaches Planning, Cost Estimating, CPM Scheduling, Resource Management, Project Cost Control, and Implementation.

Beginning with an overview of project controls, then moving into developing a project plan and exploring how the plan forms the basis of the project estimate. The different cost estimates and their components are explored. Participants will then work through developing a schedule and analyzing several schedule updates followed by a thorough presentation of Resource Management. Participants will then explore project cost control by working through Baseline Budget development, tracking commitments, cost reporting, and earned value. A participatory workshop on crashing or stretching a schedule will be presented ending with a practical guide to implementing project controls.
