On-campus unit delivery combines face-to-face and digital learning.

Aims and objectives

This unit aims to cover advanced aspects and sophisticated systems/ tools for effective and efficient scheduling outcomes in projects and 4D/5D visualisations and simulations for integrated schedule and cost controls in the construction project delivery.
Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
#Unit Learning Outcome Description
ULO1Plan and produce static/ deterministic schedules for projects and manage schedule changes/ updates during project lifecycle
ULO2Plan and prepare schedules for linear projects
ULO3Develop schedule optimisation constructs and examine trade-off opportunities
ULO4Prepare probabilistic project schedules and manage project risks
ULO5Formulate and/ or employ suitable metrics, digital technologies and software for data analytics and visualisations based progress monitoring and integrated project controls
