Technical Program:

Abstract: Several AACE recommended practices (RP) mention that the scheduler should specifically consider milestones in the creation and review of the typical construction schedule. These RPs do not provide details regarding what should be considered when reviewing milestones. It is not enough for the scheduler to look at them and hope that something ‘pops-out’. Advanced schedulers should focus on a list of specific topics. 

This paper discusses the how’s and whys of the proper use of milestones in CPM schedules and how to develop better schedules. From baseline schedules to schedule updates, this handy guide gives advanced schedulers more tools to ensure that they have better schedules and better run projects.
