5 days PL/PSPCGB
- This course is intended for project engineers responsible for building, optimizing and controlling the schedule of capital projects implemented in Oil & Gas operating facilities.
- This course aims to provide participants with the know-how to elaborate, optimize and control a project schedule.
- Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- understand the schedule elaboration process of a project, depending on its phase,
- understand the advantages and drawbacks of the various schedule computer tools available on the marketplace,
- create the schedule of a project using one of these tools (Microsoft Project, Primavera).
- No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
- Examples of on and offshore exploration and production projects.
- Exercises in groups of two.
- Computer software interfaces.
