15. 1. SUMMARY This chapter described the planning process in broad terms and identified important issues relevant to planning and controlling construction projects. In particular, it examined the hierarchy of schedules defined by the WBS, types of schedules, planning tasks in different stages of the project lifecycle, and examples of plans and schedules commonly used in the construction industry. In the next chapter, the scheduling technique known as a bar chart will be discussed in detail. 25 The concept of planning CHAPTER 2 BAR CHARTS INTRODUCTION The purpose of this chapter is to examine bar chart scheduling technique.

For this simple project, the experienced user would most likely deduce the correct answer. When projects become more complex, interpretation of relationships among activities is much more difficult. This problem can easily be overcome by constructing a linked bar chart. 2. A linked bar chart provides a clear picture of relationships among scheduled activities. It even defines relationships between those activities that are scheduled concurrently. For example, the completion of ‘Walls’ affects the completion of ‘Plumbing’; similarly, the completion of ‘Roof’ affects the completion of ‘Electrical’.

The format and the development of method statements will now be briefly demonstrated on the following simple example. Let’s assume that a contractor’s planner is developing a tender schedule for construction of a single-storey storage facility. The work involves: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • excavating the site excavating footings forming footings reinforcing footings concreting footings stripping footings’ formwork forming the ground floor slab (edge formwork only) reinforcing the ground floor slab concreting the ground floor slab forming walls (internal formwork) forming walls (external formwork) reinforcing walls concreting walls stripping walls erecting the steel roof installing roofing electrical work cleaning up.
