CPM in Construction Management

Download CPM in Construction Management by James J.O’Brien and Fredric L.Plotnick – CPM in Construction Management written by James J.O’Brien (P.E.,PMP) and Fredric L.Plotnick (Esq.,P.E.) is published by The M/G Companies, Inc. The original purpose of this book, in 1965, was to present and discuss the critical path method (CPM) and its use in the construction industry. At that time, CPM was a young but proven technique—usually considered to be optional. When the second edition was published in 1971, the network approach to scheduling was becoming a regular requirement in construction contracts. The third edition, published after 25 years of experience in the application of CPM, described highlights of that experience and its significance to the practical use of CPM. The basic strength of CPM continues to be its ability to represent logical planning factors in network form. One reviewer noted: “Perhaps the most ironic aspect of the critical path method is that after you understand it, it is self-evident. Just as an algebra student can apply the rules without full appreciation of the power of the mathematical concepts, so can the individual apply CPM or its equivalent without fully appreciating the applicability of the method.”

In the 1980s, computer calculation shifted from mainframe programs to personal computers (PCs). PCs were the wave of the past two decades. The ubiquity in the 2000s of the internet and the wave of additional interconnectivity linking individual PCs now has the appearance of coming full circle and bringing back to CPM many of the strengths and weaknesses of the era of the mainframe. However, the approaches and procedures suggested in the first five editions are, almost without exception, still valid.
