Abstract

Planning and scheduling has become an inevitable concept to be taken into consideration for the smooth functioning of construction works. The primary objective of planning is to enable the execution of the project to be right on schedule, along with being better in terms of economy and time. The purpose of the schedule is to determine the duration across which the project spans, so that the general conditions of work and requirements can be determined. The objective of this project was to plan and schedule the construction process of a building in Manipal and to identify the causes of delays. Since many unforeseen circumstances arose during the construction, the prior schedule was updated and the newer schedule was followed. Oracle’s Primavera P6 has been used for the scheduling of this project. Planning and scheduling of the building was achieved through the following steps: creating an EPS (Enterprise Project Structure), creating a WBS (Work Breakdown Structure), linking of activities according to their interdependencies as well as relations and delay analysis. The final updated schedule was compared with the original schedule to perform a thorough delay analysis. Using the results of delay analysis, the causes and mitigation measures of delays are identified. Based on the results, alternative practices are recommended, which could have compensated for the delay in the original schedule.
