With the help of scheduling, a project is structured with regard to time and thematically and its sequence is specified. As the project progresses, further development of scheduling is also carried out. Scheduling is regularly divided into 4 phases:
Level I: Basic schedule (in months)
Level II: Entire schedule (in weeks)
Level III: Detailed schedule (in weeks/days)
Level IV: Work schedule (in days)
This division can be refined further by including costs, resources or risks.
From the basic schedule to the detailed schedule, we develop schedules of all kinds based on project-related specifications. When resources (labour, equipment and costs) are deposited, a financing and cash flow plan can already be prepared at an early project stage.
A professional controlling system is important in order to not only document deviations, but also to actively control them. In the process, the actual data are acquired in the process by acquiring the performance levels or the degrees of completion of individual partial services and the scheduling forecasts for the further processing are prepared from them. In the case of scheduling disturbances, a holistic consideration of the possible consequences is important. Our objective is not a technically possible solution, but rather an economically favourable solution while complying with the project assumptions.
We have professional application knowledge in the scheduling programs Primavera, Asta Powerproject and MS Project. The use of highly networked schedules with many hundred operations is part of the daily challenge for our schedulers.
