Schedule specification requirements and schedule reviewer comments are usually well intended, but they may not always be in alignment with the project's best interests. This presentation will focus on the common project requirements and schedule comments contractors receive through baseline development, monthly update processes, and TIAs that if rigidly enforced will actually be a detriment to the quality of project schedule and the success of the project. This session will review actual anonymized schedule comments and requirements with a commentary from the contractor's perspective on how that will affect the ability to use the schedule as the tool to reflect the plan in the field and how to work together best resolve the issue.
