SESSION - II OVERVIEW

Top-down or bottom-up? The challenges of planning tools and techniques

Traditionally, planning for construction projects follows a top-down approach, where a milestone plan drives a master schedule to achieve the target completion date. This plan is pushed down to the site level to dictate the timeline for execution activities.

All this planning is generally supported by resource and productivity assumptions, emphasizing the word “assumptions” here. In our best industry experience, these assumptions rarely ever prove to be the reality on site. There are numerous factors, typical to construction projects and certain exclusive to each project as well, that hinder the realization of these plans.
