#2: Construction Management Succeeds When PM Teams Understand These 3 Concepts:
1. They understand the need to design and develop a valid CPM baseline schedule to model the actual building approach, including fully tied-in; design, submittal, construction, inspection and commissioning activities.
2. They understand the need to update and archive the master schedule weekly. They record as-built data in the course of the update. They do not use detached weekly look-ahead schedules (excel). Look-aheads are extracted from the master and methodically distributed weekly.
3. They use the weekly updates to drive and sustain trade momentum. They know how to perform the CPM schedule. They understand Brass to Brass strategies and proactively address weak subcontractors before they cause project impacts.
