Default New paper - Standards for the Levels of a Programme or Schedule

A new paper has just been published on the Planning Engineers Organisation website.

A few years ago, planners and schedulers began to describe the various types of programmes / schedules we were producing as being of different levels. Each individual person or organisation would set up and use their own system for describing these various levels of programme / schedule and this has lead to confusion caused by inconsistency.

It is time that the system for describing this hierarchy is standardised in order that some consistency is achieved, so that people can understand what is being referred to by, say a level 2 programme.

The purpose of this paper is therefore to set out the standards of description that all planners and schedulers can use, should they wish.

To view this paper visit http://www.planningengineers.org - there is a link to the paper on the home page, under the "What's New" heading.

Regards.

Gary France
Chairman
The Planning Engineers Organisation

Hi Gary, thanks for posting the annoucement (and welcome to the PMKB).

Your efforts to establish a common ground for the planning profession should be applauded.

PMI has just released their Exposure Draft of the Practice Standard for Scheduling. I believe they are looking for individuals to review and provide feedback. You can find more info here:

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the notice! I had not seen that yet. I'll go ahead and repost that info in the Practice Standard for Scheduling thread too.
