Field Scheduling 101

The aim of this course is to provide tools for scheduling at the site and crew level. Project management and site management (superintendents, general foremen and foremen) influence millions of dollars of construction a year. They must ensure that all resources are being used efficiently with minimal waste, yet they often receive very little in the way of training on how to plan and schedule field activities.
