Course ID: ADDQ031/2017
Duration: 5 Days
Fee US $: 3950 US$
Venue: Istanbul / Turkey

Introduction:

Since 1956, AACE International (the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering) has provided its members with the resources they need to enhance their performance and ensure continued growth and success.

The AACE International program's intent is to recognize specialists who meet a demanding set of planning and scheduling criteria. The PSP certification will distinguish you as a Planning and Scheduling Professional who has the knowledge and skills that impact the bottom line.

AACE's PSP certification provides an exam and experience validation that lets employers identify those who meet the program’s competency standards.

Objectives:

This five days training course will provide participants with a thorough background in the concepts of Planning and Scheduling Engineering and Construction projects. The course addresses how to identify, monitor, and balance information crucial for the successful management of projects. It will discuss the development of a baseline performance management plan (PMP) for the project that will allow the efficient compilation and the timely generation of quantitative performance comparisons. . The comparisons highlight significant performance departures ("actual vs. baseline") and allow for preventive and early remedial and corrective actions. The Practical sessions will provide hands-on experience. Workshops create and track sample project from planning phase till controlling phase (updating).

Who should attend:

This course is targeted for Project Managers, program Managers, Planners and engineers how are or will be involved in planning and managing projects where schedule, cost and performance of projects must meet rigid requirements in the areas of engineering, production, data processing, research and development, construction, corporate planning, finance and marketing.
