Abstract :

Scheduling and Finance plays very important role in construction projects. Lag in projects may affect the project completion and cost. To avoid such problems proper scheduling is important. It is a great challenge that the activity would be completed within the targeted duration. Scheduling is a simply a calendar with project activities, a network showing the sequence and timing of events required for a construction project. The techniques adopted for this project scheduling are namely Bar chart, Milestone chart and CPM. For the multi-storey buildings the scheduling may complex. To overcome such problems computer based scheduling software may be adopted. In this study, a real apartment building is taken as a case study. For that, scheduling is done with help of Primavera (P3) software. It is a tool for investigate the current practice of CPM scheduling. Proper monitoring of activities is another aspect that directly contributes to improve the productivity. Delays may easily identified so that necessary steps may be taken to complete the activity within duration. The scheduled duration with Primavera may compared with actual duration of the apartment building and know how completion time may differ with or without scheduling may identified
