What challenges are you and your peers facing in planning & scheduling? Have there been any notable trends over the last 12 months?

We’re definitely seeing some growing influences on the planning and scheduling world. Firstly, we’re seeing a resurgence in lean construction methodology – I think the basis behind this is that construction is becoming more of a manufacturing based industry with prefabrication and modularization. We’re seeing a big push with utilizing Takt planning, and last planner systems – but they’re very new concepts to a lot of people still, and not implementing them correctly can cause havoc on the job site!
