Catalog Description:
Untitled document
Construction scheduling methods are explored.  Bar charts, S-Curves, Logical sequencing, and network diagrams are presented.  CPM is explored through the consideration of planning for construction, developing timing estimates, early and late starts, and "float".  The use of the schedule to monitor and control the project progress and costs is discussed.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Course Completion of CONS 70A ( or CONS 70) and Course Completion of APTECH 90A ( or CET 90A)
