Project Programming (Scheduling) Services

Lindsay Dynan's Project Management Group has expertise in project programming or scheduling, whether as part of the complete project management service, or as a dedicated engineering service. 

As engineering consultants with qualified project management specialists on our team, we have had the pleasure of managing a number of complex projects.  A selection of these are featured in the PROJECT MANAGEMENT & PROJECT PROGRAMMING PROJECTS section.

The effective execution of a project demands clarity of:

  • Scope
  • Deliverables
  • Costs
  • Resources
  • Milestones
  • Risks

We must progress all these variables against the original plan to properly ascertain the current project status.

Particularly for large and complex engineering projects, implementing and maintaining a realistic project schedule is expedient to realising the desired end result.  It can also provide visibility, allowing optimisation of resources and identification of fast track options. 

Schedules make abstract concepts concrete, focus attention on deliverables and milestones and motivate project personnel to deliver on these expectations.  Schedules can be used for both estimating and actual project monitoring.

We have expertise in employing 'Earned Value' techniques to assess project progress.  'Earned Value' is widely recognised as an accurate and reliable method for ascertaining true project progress, by analysing and comparing the project planned value, earned value and actual cost.  We schedule with 'Primavera P6' which is the industry forerunner.  We can also schedule with 'Microsoft Project' if required.

Project Scheduling can be offered as a stand-alone service or within the context of Project Management.
