The definitive guide for using CPM in construction planning and scheduling—now thoroughly updated to reflect new technologies and procedures Critical path method (CPM) is the most widely taught and used framework for construction project design, scheduling, and management. This new edition has been fully revised to cover the latest techniques, standards, and software tools. The book begins by describing the evolution of CPM and goes on to explain every technique and function in complete detail. Written by a pair of experienced engineers and authors, CPM in Construction Management is designed so that you will save time, cut costs, reduce claims, and stay on top of every aspect of complicated projects. Central to the book is the “John Doe” case study, which describes CPM network techniques and illustrates functions such as updating, cost control, resource planning, and delay evaluation. All-new guidelines are provided for multiple software platforms, including Oracle, Deltek, Microsoft, Trimble Vico and Synchro.

Nahmias and Olsen skillfully blend comprehensive coverage of topics with careful integration of mathematics. The authors’ decades of experience in the field contributed to the success of previous editions; the eighth edition continues the long tradition of excellence. Clearly written, reasonably priced, with an abundance of expertly formulated practice problems and updated examples, this textbook is essential reading for analyzing and improving all facets of operations. Some of the material in the newest edition has been reorganized. For example, the first chapter introduces service strategy, the product/process matrix and flexible manufacturing systems, benchmarking, the productivity frontier, the innovation curve, and lean production as a strategy. The focus is slightly more international. The analysis of capacity growth planning now appears in the chapter on supply chain analytics. Aggregate planning details were added to chapter 3, including chase and level strategies in an appendix to the chapter. There is an expanded discussion on risk pooling in the chapter on supply chain strategy. The mechanics behind lean production are included in the chapter on push and pull production systems. The chapter on quality and assurance downplays sampling in favor of discussions of quality management, process capability, and the waste elimination side of lean. The separate chapter on facilities layout and location was eliminated and the information redistributed throughout the text. The authors reinforce the learning process through key points at the beginning of each chapter to guide the reader, snapshots that provide useful examples of applications to businesses, and historical notes that provide a context for the topics discussed. Production and Operations Analytics, 8/e provides the tools for adapting to the dynamic global marketplace.
