Construction management experts provided advanced training in project planning and scheduling at a Nov. 10, 2013 seminar at Preston Geren Auditorium sponsored by the Texas A&M Department of Construction Science.

“The training was applicable to all major scheduling software,” said John Nichols, an associate professor of construction science who organized the event.

The seminar’s experts used sample projects to highlight key elements of modern scheduling, and answered questions. 

The schedule and speakers were:

10 a.m. — A project management software demonstration by Thomas Dengenis, CEO of Synchro Software, which has developed a suite of building information modeling-based project management programs;

12:30 p.m. — A presentation by Gregory Wilson, an assistant professor in the College of Engineering and Technology at Texas A&M University-Commerce, who has headed numerous planning and scheduling training programs;

2 p.m. — A presentation by Boong Yeol Ryoo, an assistant professor of construction science at Texas A&M who has planned and scheduled numerous projects for companies in Korea and the United States;

3:40 p.m. — A scheduling and planning presentation by Michael Duff, a Ph.D. architecture student at Texas A&M.
