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 (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1 Plan and produce static/ deterministic schedules for projects and manage schedule changes/ updates during project lifecycle
2 Plan and prepare schedules for linear projects
3 Develop schedule optimisation constructs and examine trade-off opportunities
4 Prepare probabilistic project schedules and manage project risks
5 Formulate and/ or employ suitable metrics, digital technologies and software for data analytics and visualisations based progress monitoring and integrated project controls
