Aviation and Baggage Handling Construction
Presenters:  Andrew Grusnick, PSP, PMP and William Watts

Presentation Abstract:  This presentation will be an introduction to the world of aviation and baggage handling construction and project planning, including an overview of the market, basic components of a baggage handling system, project types and contract structures, and unique challenges and solutions associated with planning and
scheduling these projects. We hope that the concepts discussed provide a view into an industry that may otherwise be unfamiliar and may provide lessons for dealing with complex, dynamic project planning in other industries.
