PROJECT PLANNER/SCHEDULER

DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

The Project X Project Planner/Scheduler is an expert in Primavera P6, no matter the industry. Our scheduling standards are carried through each large construction project schedule we develop. On top of schedule development, the Planner/Scheduler will provide constant reporting and analysis of the project schedule which will aid in presentations for clients. The rigorous standards implemented by our Planners can be adapted easily by the Project Engineers and trained to each site team on the front-line to ensure constructability is maintained and consistency of schedule data is generated.

Our Planner/Scheduler will visit client projects for on-site walkthroughs of the building and to provide verification of installation in comparison to the schedule on a routine basis. By working constantly with the Project Manager and clientele to frequently provide regular schedule updates as the project progresses, our Planner/Scheduler is able to deliver accurate information on demand.

Our team members work to understand the Voice of The Customer and work to deploy a plan that matches those goals. The Planner/Scheduler is no different. They are ultimately responsible for knowing the tools on the Project X bench and know how to deploy those for your success.
