Guide to good practice in the management of time in major projects: Dynamic time modelling
Delayed completion affects all project based industries in all countries, and the bigger the project, the more damage delayed completion causes to costs, reputation and even to the survival of the contracting parties themselves.
First published by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) in 2010, the 'Guide to good practice in the management of time in major projects' sets a standard for time management in building and civil engineering projects. It is an integral part of the CIOB’s strategy to provide standards, education, training and accreditation in time management.
The latest (2nd) edition, published in February 2018, emphasises dynamic, strategic time modelling for the management of time and cost on major projects. It includes a new chapter distinguishing the principal features of the dynamic time model and its development throughout the life of a project, from inception to completion. It also includes new appendices covering matters such as complexity in construction and engineering projects, productivity guides and a number of case studies.
Keith Pickavance, author and past President of the CIOB said:
“This guide is a step-by-step illustration of how the parties can work collaboratively to meet this challenge using traditional project procurement routes or the most advanced BIM, from the adoption of a workable time-management strategy through to the day to day detail of risk management, using a predictive time model.”
The publication is aimed at project and program management professionals working in civil engineering and construction projects, including those from contractors, clients and project management consultants.
