Graphical Planning Method™

Authored by: Gui Ponce de Leon

This paper kicks-off a series of treatises on a new, visual, planning-centric process for network-based planning and scheduling. It describes the basic process for configuring a Graphical Planning Method (GPM) plan to the point where attention can focus on further improving resource profiles and optimizing critical activities, as originally posited by CPM. The mathematical basis for GPM and GPM risk analysis will be dealt with in future papers.
