The Critical Path Method scheduling method (CPM) is a best practice for construction sequencing and logic tie planning. With CPM, construction managers create a construction schedule that identifies the critical path for the project. The CPM method calculates the critical path by calculating the project’s start date, duration, and end date. Construction managers use the CPM method to optimize the construction project schedule and minimize construction costs.
The CPM method is especially useful for waste water and used oil treatment plants. These types of projects have many moving parts and require a high degree of coordination between contractors. By using the CPM method, construction managers can ensure that all contractors are working on their tasks in the correct sequence and that there are no delays in the construction schedule. This helps to avoid costly delays and ensures that the project is completed on time and within budget.
HSE applies the specific knowledge of waste water treatment plants construction sequence and logic ties of what we learned on previous projects to all of our future work so our clients can truly see the benefit of hiring an experienced consultant. Our goal is to design the schedule to show the optimum sequence of activities and set up logic ties in a way that could allow construction managers to use the tool to prove the impact of compensable or excusable delays in future monthly updates.
