TORNADO 9 QUESTIONS ? 10 CRITICAL PATH METHOD (CPM) CPM is a form of analysis that is used for planning, scheduling, and controlling construction activities for a project from start to finish.

The CPM requires a formal, detailed listing of all work related activities that make up the project. Also referred to as: Construction Management Project Planning and Scheduling Critical Path Analysis 11 PRELIMINARY PLANNING

Preliminary planning is a quick overall picture of the project and the capacity of the unit to accomplish it. Serves as a guide for detailed planning. Includes site recon, preliminary material and equipment estimates, and procurement of critical items. 12 DETAILED PLANNING Develops an accurate estimation of work activities, materials, man-hours, and equipment requirements needed from start to

finish. Detailed planning includes: Reviewing project specifications and drawings. Detailed estimates of resources. Scheduling work activities. Submitted in the form of a Gantt chart, Pert chart, Activity-on-the-Arrow logic 13

Job Directive Format The job directive is the tasking of a unit to perform construction tasks, and draw needed materials to complete the project assigned. Job directives vary in form and content. They are issued in one of two ways: Verbally for simple projects. Written for more complex projects.

14 Stages of Detail Job directives can be in any one of three stages of detail: Contain detailed plans and specifications. The more stable the conditions are, the more detailed the job directive becomes. May simply refer to standardized drawings,

or automated software programs already published. May require preparation of complete plans and project specifications to be approved 15 by higher headquarters. Job Directive Information Mission: Exact assignment with all necessary details. Location: May be given, or left to the unit to select. Time: Starting time and/or required

completion date. Manpower: Additional manpower that is available. Equipment: Additional equipment that is 16 Job Directive Information, cont. Materials: Source of and authority to request materials. Priorities: Single priority for the whole project, or separate priorities for various portions of the project.

Reports: Any required reports. (i.e. Weekly status report) Special Instructions: Any additional information pertaining to the job that is requested. 17 ? In what two forms may job directives be issued? In military construction, the planning process is divided into what two stages?

18 ACTIVITY LISTS (Brainstorming) An activities (task) list is a complete listing of all required work activities that must be performed from start to finish. An activity list can be brief, or as detailed as need be. The guiding factor to how much detail that is required is dictated by size and complexity of the project. An activity list must be developed mentally and on paper to determine actual activities and their interrelationships to each other.

The most difficult step is your ability to think logically, and make a mental picture of the project in your mind. 19 Brainstorming is needed with the assistance of the ROUGH ACTIVITIES LISTING PROJECT: ONE LANE GRAVEL ROAD, 1500 FEET LONG, LEADING TO A CONCRETE STORAGE PAD THAT IS 32-0 X 32-0 IN SIZE. Activities Topo project site Lay gravel Order gravel Clear roadway

Prefabricate forms Layout pad batter boards Pour concrete Check pad elevations Remove forms Establish road grades Set road alignments Place concrete forms Clear pad site Create project drawings Excavate pad footings Cure concrete Check Road grades 20 Perform As-built

Sequencing Activities After you have developed your rough activity list in no specific order, you must now put the activities into a "logical" sequence to be performed. The finished activity list is broken down as follows: Activity Number Column Activity Column

"Immediately Proceeded By" (IPB) Column 21 Types of Activities There are five types of activities associated with the development of a finished activities list. Keeping these activities in mind will help you in your logical thinking to develop the activity list on paper.

Starting activities. Preceding activities. Concurring activities. Succeeding activities. 22 Sample Finished Activities List Activity Number 5

26 PLANNING DIAGRAMS The most important part of the CPM is the planning diagram. The planning diagram graphically shows the interrelationship between project activities. It provides a visual blueprint of the work activities that must be performed during construction. There are four types of diagrams that

can be created. Each serves a specific purpose. 27 GANTT CHART Also known as a bar chart. Gantt charts are "time" oriented. Activities are graphically shown on a calendar time scale, used primarily for small projects. Bars show an activities duration in its

entirety, regardless of its dependency on other activities. 28 GANTT CHART ID 1 Task Name Topo project site 2 Create project drawings 3

exact progress of the project. Anticipate delays or problems soon enough to correct them. Does not show detailed sequence of activities. Does not show "critical activities". Does not show precise effect of a delay or failure to complete an activity on time. 31 PERT CHART DIAGRAM The Program Evaluation and Review

Technique (PERT) addresses probability, and is "event" oriented. This type of logic diagram is used primarily for research and development projects. 32 PERT CHART Clear roadway Topo project site Create project drawings

33 Activity-On-The-Arrow Format More complex in its creation. Tendency to lead to confusion when trying to interpret it. Least desirable format to use because of these factors. 34 ACTIVITY-ON THE-ARROW CHART

35 Activity-On-The-Node Format Eliminates confusion, and allows you to adjust for problems that may arise during the construction of the project. AON format is "activity" oriented. This is the primary format used for planning military construction, and especially used for large projects. 36 Activity-On-The-Node Uses Construction planning

Maintenance planning Project Design Military combat task planning Logistics planning 37 AON Advantages Reduces risk of overlooking essential tasks. Provides a blueprint for long-range planning. Shows activity interrelationships. Focuses attention on critical activities. Allows you to make timely decisions. Allows you to manage manpower, material,

and equipment resources more effectively. 38 AON Disadvantages The AON format does not solve engineering problems that may occur. Does not make planning decisions for you. Does not provide anything substantial to the actual construction of the project itself. 39

ACTIVITY-ON-THE-NODE 40 LOGIC DIAGRAM ELEMENTS After the activity relationships are identified, they are applied to a logic diagram. The standard format for a logic diagram is the "Activity-on-the-Node". The four basic elements are: Activity Nodes Start Nodes Finish Nodes Precedence Arrows 41


? What type of planning diagram is event oriented? What type of planning diagram is time oriented? What type of planning diagram is activity oriented? 45 LOGIC DIAGRAMS Shown as a Critical Path Method (CPM) logic diagram. Shows accurate, timely, and easily

understood picture of the whole project. Easier to plan, schedule, and manage the sequence of required work activities. Graphically shows the interrelationship of each work activity as they relate to the completion of the whole project. 46 CPM DIAGRAM LOGIC RULES Which activities start at the beginning of the project? (Starting) Which activities must be finished before

the start of another? (Preceding) Which activities can start or finish at the same time as another? (Concurring) Which activities cannot begin until another is finished? (Succeeding) 47 DEMONSTRATION Going to Morning Formation 48 PRACTICAL

ACTIVITY ESTIMATES Estimating each activities required resources and duration times. Estimated resources are: Materials Personnel Equipment Man-hours Equipment-hours 52

MATERIAL ESTIMATES Work Items Materials Quantities Waste Factors Total Material Requirements Bills of Materials

53 EQUIPMENT/PERSONNEL ESTIMATES Work Items. (Activities) Material Quantities. (Units of work) Work Rate. (Man-hour Tables) Standard Work Effort (Labor). (Quantity x Work Rate) Efficiency Factor. (Represented as a Percentage) Troop Effort (Total Labor Hours). (Standard Effort / Efficiency)

Duration (Hours, Days, Weeks, or Months). (Troop Effort / Crew Size) 54 DURATIONS Durations are calculated based on: Amount of Material Handled Amount of effort put into using manpower Duration Guidelines: Increasing equipment or Personnel = Reduced duration time of Activity. Decreasing equipment or Personnel = Increased

duration time of Activity. Increasing length of workday = Reduced duration time of Activity. Decreasing length of workday = Increased duration time of Activity. Working on the weekend = Reduced duration time of the entire project. 55 ? What are the two types of estimates? What effect does increasing equipment quantities have on the duration of an activity? 56

EARLY/LATE EVENT TIMES After all duration's have been computed, you are now able to calculate each activities Early and Late event times. (Forward Pass and Backward Pass) Early Start (ES): The earliest time a activity can logically start.

Early Finish (EF): The earliest an activity can finish without delaying follow on activities. (ES + Duration) Late Finish (LF): The latest an activity can finish without delaying the entire project. Late Start (LS): The latest time an activity can start without delaying the entire project. (LF - Duration) 57 ACTIVITY LIST WITH ESTIMATED DURATION'S Activity Number Duration 5 days 10

After completing the event times, you can determine the "critical path" of the project and all of the "critical activities" by simple observation using the following guidelines: The ES for an activity is the same as its LS. The EF for an activity is the same as 59 its LF.

DEMONSTRATION EARLY/LATE EVENT TIMES 60 PRACTICAL EXERCISE 61 ? What are some of the types of resources that must be estimated for an activity? What is the term that is used to calculate the early event times for a project?

What is the term that is used to calculate the late event times for a project? 62 10 Min Break! 63 EARLY START SCHEDULES An early start schedule, when joined with the logic diagram, graphically shows all of the planning information that is needed to manage the construction project from start to finish.

Any activity not on the "Critical Path" will contain some float. Float is any extra time that is available to complete an activity beyond its actual duration, without effecting the entire project. 64 EARLY START SCHEDULE FORMAT 65 FLOAT Total Float (TF): The entire amount of time that an

activity can be delayed without delaying the entire project completion time. TF = LS - ES or LF - EF Interfering Float (IF): Time that is available to delay an activity without delaying the projects entire completion time, but may delay the start of one or more non-critical activities. IF = LF -ES of following activity. (Use the smallest ES time) Free Float (FF): Time that is available to delay an activity without delaying the start of any other activity, or the entire projects completion time. 66

Early Start Schedule Plotting Start by listing all activity numbers and their succeeding activities. Draw time brackets: Length is equal to LF-ES. (This will include total float if any) Note: ES times for starting activities will be day 1. All other ES will begin on the morning of the succeeding day. Label resource quantities in each appropriate time bracket. Only label the blocks for the activitys normal duration. 67 RESOURCE ABBREVIATIONS SQUAD = SQ


DT 68 Early Start Schedule Plotting (Cont.) Interfering Float: When plotting IF work right to left starting at the ending bracket, shown as a X. IF will be plotted first. Any remaining blank/open blocks will be Free Float. Free Float: FF will fall automatically into position after the IF is marked. Note: All finishing activities will only have FF and that the critical path will NOT have any float. The final step is to total all resources for each

day and list them at the bottom of the schedule. 69 DEMONSTRATION EARLY START SCHEDULE 70 71 10 Min Break! 72 PRACTICAL
