11th Annual NetPoint & Graphical Path Method Conference
January 14, 2021
The 11th Annual NetPoint & Graphical Path Method Conference will be available virtually from the comfort of your home or office. Join us for the two-day program focused on advancing the practice of planning and scheduling. Led by industry professionals, attendees can explore, discover, and harness project planning and scheduling skills. The event is open to all project planners, schedulers, students, and faculty currently using NetPoint as well as those new to NetPoint.
SuperForecasting, hailed as “the most important book on decision making since Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow,” has inspired a breakthrough innovation in project controls. In this presentation, Dr. Gui introduces SuperScheduling – a project scheduling framework that relies on collaboratively built, intelligent schedules ― not as direct predictors of project completion, but as schedule inputs for Monte Carlo simulation where activity duration risk progressively reflects learned, statistical activity performance left of the data date.
Dr. Gui Ponce de Leon, founder and CEO of PMA Consultants, is recognized as one of our nation’s foremost planning and scheduling subject matter experts. His executive and senior-level roles have included investor’s developer, program manager, construction manager, and EPC contractor planner/scheduler. Dr. Gui has continually pioneered innovations in project management throughout his career at PMA. He has written widely on the use of CPM in construction contracts as well as on schedule, delay, and acceleration analysis. His recent work with the Graphical Path Method is revolutionizing planning and scheduling at a level not seen since the advent of critical path methods.
NetPoint & GPM – the Peak of Innovation
Do your projects require maintaining multiple schedules for different levels of detail? Summarizing large and detailed schedules and keeping multiple schedules synchronized can be very challenging and time-consuming. In this session, we’ll present how we are leveraging NetPoint’s ability to create interactive and high-level schedules with new solutions we’re working on to solve core problems like these and advance our vision: reliable project schedules that everyone understands. You’ll also be able to vote on existing ideas, submit new suggestions, and be the first to see what’s coming next on our journey to transform planning and scheduling.
Subject matter experts will present practical, cutting-edge solutions in case studies for project management. Industry-recognized thought leaders will challenge some generally accepted practices and offer a framework and direction to move the industry forward. Current and prospective NetPoint users will be delighted to learn about the recent features, functionality, and cutting–edge strategies that leverage the power of GPM straight from leading practitioners and NetPoint developers.
