Scheduling Tall Buildings

  • Denis W. Boyd


Today when speaking of construction scheduling we are normally referring to the critical path method. The Critical Path is the longest path through the construction activities to complete the project. Because of the complexity of most projects the computations are performed on computers using programs especially designed for this task. The critical path method provides information on the earliest and latest start and finish dates for each activity. For dates on the critical path the early and late dates are the same. We say that activities on the critical path have zero float, which means that they cannot slip without delaying the completion of the project.
