PMA is unparalleled in providing cost, planning, and scheduling management services on projects in multiple industries. We provide owners with constant feedback andinformation to ensure successful project execution. To accomplish this, we develop and maintain custom reports that graphically depict project cost and schedule status in a timely manner. This leads to enhanced cost and schedule management and increases the likelihood of achieving (or beating) your cost and schedule goals.
Effective program management requires developing and maintaining detailed program schedules for all program phases. In fact, schedule management starts well before construction begins, ideally in the planning phase where each task associated with design, bidding, construction, and commissioning is scheduled to avoid construction delays. Our schedule management services include developing master, objective, design phase, construction, and commissioning/close-out schedules; reviewing contractor schedules; setting time and liquidated damages; and providing value scheduling. Using a critical path method (CPM), we prepare and update master schedules that portray summary level activities for each phase of large, complex construction projects.
Our cost management processes actively control cost at all project stages, giving project participants a clear financial picture at any time and allowing team members to make timely, informed decisions. In addition, integrating cost and schedule data from each project identifies potential interferences with, impacts to, or competition for limited resources, often before program/project milestones are impacted.
