This work is aimed at professional Project Managers, Engineers and Planners who require a text which is short, concise and easy to follow. It draws on the author's practical knowledge in the use of project management software and presents workable solutions to real day-to-day planning and scheduling problems. The book takes the user through the logical sequence of creating a schedule and statusing (updating or progressing) and contains practical advice on how to use the software and how to collect the data required to create and update your schedule. It is a balanced book, outlining how to use the core features of Microsoft Project 2002, Standard and Professional versions, to create and status both un-resourced and resourced schedules in a single project environment. It is aimed to take the user quickly to an intermediate skill level in the use of Microsoft Project 2002 by not becoming involved in the features that are not commonly used in traditional project scheduling.
