“Developing Work Breakdown Structures (WBS)”. First, WBS is used to list all utility, engineering, and construction activities that are broken down by phases, areas, and types of work.
It included also running several what-if scenarios. In order to optimize the sequence of operations and developing the logic, sequence, and diagrams to avoid high float values. Then, Our Consultants in USA tested and analyzed the longest path of the project, assigned direct Crew to all construction activities, and identify man-hours throughout the job. Furthermore, They provided the status of potential resources available and their feasibility to the project in USA and developed and analyzed the resource profile histogram to level resources.
The construction management team in NY has also worked on successful Delay analysis and time extension claims.
1- Risk and delays assessment
2- Then, Identify major areas of slippage
3- Delay impact analysis and recovery actions
4- Develop narrative report; shall include activities started in the month (with actual start dates), activities completed during the month (with actual start and completion dates), activities in progress (with estimated remaining durations), and activities scheduled to start in the following month (with estimated start dates).
Pearls Team of CPM Scheduling and Cost Loading in USA created a list of approved logic changes, a list of proposed logic changes, new activities, and deleted activities.
Then, Recommendations for adjusting the Construction Progress Schedule to meet contractual milestone completion dates. (includes why the schedule needs to be adjusted, e.g., change orders in the construction schedule, weather delays, contractor resources, etc.)
Cost loading in Construction CPM Schedule:
1- Allocating cost estimates to individual work items in order to establish a cost baseline.
2- Construction budget development, monitoring, and reporting.
3- Monitoring the project cost performance for all construction and engineering activities.
4- Updating forecasted cash flow using earned value technique.
5- Balancing cost codes for all activities in consistence with bid items in order to add up to the total amount
