Introduction:

Planning is the process of devising of a workable scheme of operations that, when put into action, will accomplish an established objective. The most time consuming and difficult aspect of the job management system planning is also the most important. It requires an intimate knowledge of construction methods combined with the ability to visualize discrete work elements and to establish their mutual interdependencies. If planning were to be the only job analysis made, the time would be well spent. To prepare the Construction planning, scheduling and networking, information must be sought from many sources. Guidance from key personnel involved with the project, such as estimators, the project manager, the site In-charge, and the site engineer, can be obtained from a planning meeting or perhaps a series of meetings. The network serves as a medium whereby the job plan can be reviewed, criticized, modified, and improved. As problems arise, consultations with individuals can clear up specific questions.

The important point here is the need for full group participation in the development of the network and collective views must be solicited. Participation by key subcontractors and suppliers is also vital to the development of a workable plan.

It must be recognized that the project plan represents the best thinking available at the time it is conceived and implemented. However, no such scheme is ever perfect and the need for change is inevitable as the work progresses. Insight and greater job knowledge are acquired as the project evolves. This increased cognizance necessarily results in corrections, refinements, and improvements to the operational plan. The project program must be viewed as a dynamic device that is continuously modified to reflect the progressively more precise thinking of the field management team.

While in project controlling/monitoring phase planning engineer has to measure the performance and inform the team about the progress and suggest to them, where performance needs improvement. Monitoring implies communicating effectively with the project management team, the client and own management, about what is happening at the project and future course of action to be taken to expedite progress of work or to avoid a potential unwanted situation.

Purpose of Planning

The ultimate purpose of planning is to build a model, that allows you to predict the activities and resources that are critical for the timely completion of the project. Planning allows the strategies to be implemented to ensure that these activities and resources are managed and the project delivered both “on time” and “within budget”.
