A call by Brendan Bechtel to improve schedule and cost performance
August 24, 2016
Brendan Bechtel, soon to be chief executive of the engineering and construction company that bears his family’s name, sounded an alarm about the industry’s performance on megaprojects with words as plainly spoken as any you will hear at a conference.
This webinar will describe the ways that contractors are merging the two systems, and the digital tools that make that possible, so that Last Planner methods that are part of Lean can add important workflow, crew size, location and resource information to keep the Critical Path Schedule properly updated and keep the long-term goal of on-time completion paramount.
We will talk with two experts from the global claims consultant and construction project management firm Hill International, about the principles they stand by for change documentation, and the technologies they apply to facilitate it.
