Keep the project on schedule is one of the most widely understood goals in the construction industry. How does one accomplish this completely subjective statement in a complex urban freeway renewal project like the I-235 Reconstruction? A fully integrated computer-based Program Master schedule should not only be developed, but also should be updated, customized, and implemented on a regular basis. Updating the schedule keeps the schedule with the latest project status; customizing the schedule satisfies clients' different levels of demands; implementing the schedule makes users of it. These three sequential steps help to make management decisions and thus end up helping a project keep on schedule. The objective of this thesis is to detail key elements involved in updating, customizing, and implementing an urban freeway renewal project schedule.
