North Florida Section: Spotlight on Recommended Practice [55R-09]-Analyzing S-Curves

When:  Nov 10, 2022 from 06:30 PM to 08:00 PM (ET)

Spotlight on Recommended Practice [55R-09] - Analyzing S-Curves


This recommended practice provides descriptions of S-curves with the intent to improve understanding and communication among project participants and stakeholders when preparing and analyzing graphics based upon project schedule information. The RP describes different types of S-curves that may be generated in a project, provided the proper information is loaded into the schedule and the status of the information is maintained throughout the duration of the project.
