SCHEDULING
Development of project master schedules and preliminary schedules for contract time determination

EARNED VALUE MANAGEMENT (EVM)
Integration of cost and schedule early in project lifecycle to analyze schedule and cost performance indicators useful in projecting long term trends. CPI and SPI represent work accomplished compared to actual and scheduled work costs. Predictions of final cost and completion date can be made earlier enough to introduce corrective actions to take place.

Conduct monthly risk meetings to review identified risks, document risk strategies and make updates.
Develop and manage risk register, facilitate risk workshop to review and update the risk register.
Prepare Project Definition Rating Index (PDRI) using Construction Industry Institute’s PDRI tool to assess risks and opportunities for the project.
