Abstract

In order to complete a project in the proposed time at the estimated cost, the work has to be well organized. Careful construction planning cuts Costs, Time and creates an orderly sequence for the project. Improvement of planning management not only can aid the construction industry, but may also be the engine for the national and world economy. This paper shows that how we can cut the construction cost and time by applying simple techniques of proper scheduling. Scheduling is the process by which you look at the time available to you, and plan how you will use it to achieve the goals you have identified. This paper also shows the requirements of effective planning through proper utilization of labor, material and equipment as these are the major part of construction. Paper includes a step-by-step look at the Project Planning Cycle, including, Project Objectives, Strategic Goals, Data Collection, Deliverables, Tasks, Task Relationships, Resourcing, Implementation Strategy, Scheduling, Monitoring, Risk Management.
