Presentation and Speaker Info

 Linear Scheduling for
Major infrastructure Projects Software

Your project’s schedule contains hundreds or thousands of activities and prints on dozens of pages of Gantt charts. How are you going to review this schedule, and communicate it to your team in a format that they can use? Join us to learn how to create a linear schedule that illustrates your project on a single page and illuminates critical relationships that would otherwise go unnoticed, all in a format that’s easily understood by laypersons. You’ll see how this method played a key role in delivering an award-winning CSO tunnel project in Washington DC, the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement in Seattle, and how it’s currently being used here on a pipeline project for Consumers Energy.
