Recalibrating Project Schedules and Supporting Owner Decision-making in Times of COVID-19
June 02, 2021
When COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic in March of 2020, almost every project was immediately affected by this new and unprecedented level of uncertainty. Angel Arvelo and Dennis Lucey present how project teams implemented new practices to safeguard workers and minimize the most immediate effects, and Owners endeavored to understand project impact to make informed decisions on recalibrating their overall strategies. PMA Consultants worked with client organizations to comprehend these new risks, update project schedules to reflect their impacts, and to formulate new execution plans, identify variability, and model uncertainty, all while adjusting to the new working environment. This presentation demonstrates how the team leveraged NetPoint to evaluate impacts to the project schedule and to collaborate with stakeholders to recalibrate the plan and used NetRisk to factor uncertainty into the program and to model different scenarios to assist both project team and the Owner to make informed decisions.
