In construction projects, one of the main problems in the schedule planning and control is the determination of the project schedule, especially, when the resources required are limited. Project managers or schedulers have used an estimated time to assure the completion time of either an activity or a project. However, this traditional schedule estimate, often fails in optimizing the project schedule performance, resulting in unnecessary time wastage. Dr. Goldratt proposed the Theory of… CONTINUE READING
