Bringing fresh perspectives and new ideas to meet today’s challenges.
Master planning is strategic and stable. It provides a high-level roadmap to complete the project on time and budget with the resources estimated at the time of bid. It is the structure in which production planning lives.
Production planning is the opposite. It’s tactical and dynamic. It moves the project forward and is resource-driven at the handoff level. This is why most superintendents choose to schedule in Excel, Microsoft Project, or on paper. The ease of use and agility gets the job done but they are often developed independently of the master plan.
Their independence increases project risk by diminishing alignment and traceability between the two schedules. Reconciliation becomes challenging, often resulting in time-consuming and costly re-forecasting of both schedules. Unfortunately, most scheduling software is not designed to manage the dichotomy between these two different approaches to planning.
Book a demo today so we can demonstrating how ASTA Powerproject’s ease of use and flexibility can save you time and money and reduce your risk by providing one platform to unify your master and production planning needs.
During this presentation attendees will be introduced using Powerproject to:
- Create & Integrate a Production Schedule
- Update and Progress Completed Work
- Compare Planned vs Actual Work Complete
