Scheduling is one of the most important factors within the construction industry. The current Advanced Scheduling curriculum addresses how to use the program P6, but not the understanding of how to sequence. This project introduced two new lab activities that focus on the understanding of sequencing while using P6. I chose this project because I have always had an interest in scheduling as it is one of the most important driving factors in construction and after taking Advanced Scheduling in my Junior year I noticed there is a need for understanding sequencing. I wanted to introduce a new curriculum because I think there is room for improvement within the current curriculum, specifically scheduling. Each activity is scope specific requiring more critical thinking on sequencing and activity selection. Each activity was based on a past project from the 2019 Mixed-Use ASC Region 7 Competition. After analyzing the plans each activity consisted of specific detailed plans focused on creating critical thinking for students to plan and sequence specific scopes while creating reliable and realistic activity durations. These two lab activities introduce new critical thinking skills while teaching the necessary tools for sequencing.
