Keynote: Better Algorithms to Schedule By
April 30, 2018
Computer algorithms are essential in construction management. NetPoint algorithms compute gaps and floats in real-time, automate activity positions, and generate weather-impacted schedules while preserving float continuity. NetRisk algorithms simulate schedule delays and predict activity floats for target completion dates. Schedule MD algorithms analyze hundreds of schedule characteristics to generate schedule reliability scores. Join Dr. Gui Ponce de Leon as he discusses how these algorithms have made NetPoint, NetRisk, and Schedule MD indispensable tools in construction management.
Dr. Gui Ponce de Leon is one of our nation’s foremost planning and scheduling experts. His professional experience includes roles as investor’s developer, construction manager, program manager, and EPC contractor planner/scheduler. Dr. Gui has continually pioneered innovations in project management throughout his 45-year career. With GPM, he is on a quest to transform scheduling from a task performed by specialists using a “black box” to stakeholder-centric processes that promote collaboration, enhance stakeholder interaction, and inherently result in reliable schedules.
