At this point the project manager must establish credibility with the architect and engineers and must show that the shop drawings are being reviewed for compliance with the plans and specifications and are not merely being passed through without any scrutiny whatsoever. TRANSMITTALS A typical shop drawing is used on all long-lead and fabricated items. In addition, a separate file should be kept for each trade that will be submitting large numbers of drawings, such as structural steel, plumbing, HVAC, sprinkler system, and electrical work.

Project scheduling always contains a dichotomy, or duality, that is a strange combination of clean, conceptual, theoretical planning, which then must be carried out in a real-world field application production that is sometimes much akin to a fistfight in a mudhole. Seldom are the two conducive to easy production; not for anything larger than, say, a doghouse. (Unless, of course, the doghouse is located in a flood plain or earthquake area. ) But therein lies the job description for the professional project scheduler: Take the owner’s project that looked good enough on computer to get the bank to fund it and develop a production schedule that will build it profitably in the real-time world amidst heavy competitive business combat.

6. Identify all long-lead items (items that have to be fabricated or custom manufactured with a long delivery time). 7. Identify for close monitoring all subcontractors with long-lead items in their activity. The crucial part of successful project scheduling, however, is the methodology you use to complete these tasks. Profitable project scheduling requires knowledge of network scheduling and the use of modern computer CPM programs. The traditional old ways of handwritten spreadsheets and day planners are long antiquated, although there are still scheduling companies around that offer hand processing for certain types of projects.
