Schedule For Sale

Do we have a choice between good and bad productivity?

We do, and most often we make the passive choice to leave good productivity behind because we don’t fully understand the link between preparation and productivity.

Schedule for Sale is a guidebook on how to apply WorkFace Planning, an industry best practice first identified by The Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA) in 2005. The process organizes the elements necessary for productive construction, which then leads to improved quality and reduced schedule & costs from the absence of chaos. The reduction of energy consumption from the shortened schedule is also the foundation for Green Construction.

Even More Schedule for Sale

Even More Schedule for Sale is the second guidebook by Geoff Ryan on the subject of construction productivity for industrial projects. It describes the step-by-step application of the industry’s best practice of advanced work packaging and ties it into the logic from the first book, Schedule for Sale, on workface planning. As the name suggests, there is even more schedule to be gained over just getting the construction team organized (workface planning) by aligning engineering and procurement deliverables with the needs of construction (advanced work packaging). This transition of workface planning into advanced work packaging is the bigger picture of construction productivity and the natural evolution of the road map that leads to the right stuff, ending up in the right place, in the right sequence.
