Getting Back to Basics: Update Schedule Review by the Numbers (Recommended Practice Numbers, that is) 

Performing an update schedule review submitted by a 3rd party requires a vastly different skill sets than that of creating a schedule.  The scheduler who creates a schedule works with a large number of construction professionals who will provide feedback and guidance.  Typically, the scheduler who reviews a 3rd party's schedule submittal works alone.  This process can be quite daunting for the first-time reviewer.

The reviewer does not need to work alone as long as there is an access to AACE's incredible library of recommended practices and technical papers.  This paper focuses on the key documents that aid in determining the main topics of the review memorandum, assist in identifying the culprits that make schedule updates non-compliant, as well as provide solid guidelines on how to gauge schedule's overall quality. The authors hope to inspire and motivate project controls professionals to advance their skill set from being a proficient scheduler to becoming a trusted scheduling consultant.
