Originally developed by James E. Kelly and Morgan R. Walker in the 1950s, and followed by the work of John Fondahl, Critical Path Method (CPM) scheduling has become the de facto standard for scheduling projects. Most owners require the use of CPM as a contractual requirement.

In response, an entire sub-industry has been created based on the use of CPM to predict, forecast and report project progress. In addition, many have attempted to use CPM as the basis for detailed planning and control of both craft and knowledge work. And of course, analysis of the CPM schedule is the basis of many claims.

Join our experts on Wednesday, 21 October, to discuss the history of CPM and review its current use, including both positive and negative aspects.
