Planning and scheduling are the most important aspects contributing to the success of a project. How these factors affect the construction productivity is studied and discussed in this project. With proper planning and scheduling, there is a great chance that the work would be completed within the targeted cost and time. It is important that proper work would be completed within the optimum usage of materials, manpower and machinery be adopted. The techniques normally been used for project scheduling, are namely the Gantt chart and critical path method.
There are some factors to be concerned during delivery of fast-track construction project effectively: (i) Selecting of project delivery way to achieve the required result is important to project. Selected delivery method determines the contracts between the different parties, and the practices necessary to form and administer the contracts as well as risks are assigned. Selection needs to be carefully made on each project which based on specific situations, and primary constraints of the project. (ii) Fast-tracking not only refers to overlapping activities among design and construction work. The extent of fast-track can be extended to the early stage of project.
It is within this stage of project development where projects solutions based on the challenges that the project has to address is developed in details. The project management team responsible for the planning of the project, has to come up with various strategies that defines steps in which objectives of the project development would be achieve. The other important requirement of the project development team at this stage is the planning of the project development process. Based on the available information from the feasibility team, the project planning team is required to study the information so as to determine resources that are required by the project from its start to completion and the process of acquiring them. As such, the team will also look at the funds allocation for the

Project Closure Project Initiation Processes The initiation processes are supposed to start the project but they appear to be part of the very thing they are attempting to start. This is really only a semantic problem and it could be argued that the project starts
To that impact. The will, the course of activity, and the rules are expressed in arrangements. Plans shift in kind from inflexible particulars of future activity to adaptable standards for choice making. Urban planning is the aggregate administration of urban improvement, the utilization of intentional pondering to offer shape to human settlements. It is the preparation of group will and the outline of methodologies to make, enhances, or protects nature in which we live.
However, resource allocation depends on a list of criteria for how to allocate limited resources within a specific period (Mostafa, 1996). The planning of construction projects is often of little detail resulting in high coordination effort, low productivity rates and delays in overall progress (Horenburg T, Wimmer J, & Günthner W, 2012). Anyway, the project activities are subject to a large improbability which can lead to schedule disruptions. When the correct amount of planning effort is invested, the project operation time is optimized, and there is a high probability that the project will achieve its future objectives in construction
A project plan specifies the resources required for implementing an ERP system, the timeline for completion of the implementing process, the targets that need to be achieved by implementing the ERP system, etc. In addition, the project planning phase involves developing a contingency plan, identifying control measures, and deciding methods for the evaluation of the ERP system. IV. Gap Analysis: In this phase, an organisation develops a model that states its current status and future targets. Using this model, the organisation can anticipate any functional gaps and cover them.
Construction project involved many parties and construction participants. Thus, there should be much work to be done along the process to complete the construction project. Currently almost all of construction inspection activities are done using paper-based blueprints. Issues on the manual current practice of site inspection are expensive, slow and high probabilities of error. In addition, the delivery of information to the sub-contractor also has done using paper-based blueprints and hard-copied reports.
The involvement of a designer in the construction safety is a voluntary effort. The designer and construction company work together only in the design and build firms or in turnkey specialised company. Safety manuals and checklist are being used in such projects. P. G. Furst (2009) also addressed the importance of the incorporation of safety measures in the design process. The author showed how safety can be applied in projects in different phases of the project (Figure 1) and the opportunity to prevent construction accidents is the highest during the planning phase.
Designers and project managers in the construction industry seek to fully plan and define the preferred final product as per the client’s preferences at the beginning of a contract this is impossible as all aspects of planning become more difficult the more into the future they extend (PRINCE, 2009). The client is a person that is first party to the contract and requires specialist work on site prior to practical completion of the construction project this is usually carried out by the contractor. The contractor therefore is second party to the contract with the client for the execution of the works as named in the contract agreement. As a result due to the perpetually evolving environment in which construction takes place as well as the unique
