Lean Management

W.T. Rich places a high level of emphasis on developing and maintaining accurate and comprehensive schedules for each and every project. These project schedules not only serve as a critical communication tool for the project but also play a critical role in how W.T. Rich project teams review, analyze and manage project schedules, progress, and results.

Our team utilizes Primavera Project Planner P6 software to create and maintain Critical Path Method (CPM) schedules throughout the course of the entire project. CPM scheduling is one of the most important and useful processes throughout the life of the project.

W.T. Rich Company integrates three-week look ahead schedules into this process, updating and distributing them each week to the project team and the owner. In addition, our project teams define a comprehensive set of critical milestone deadlines for each project. We use these milestone schedules as a crucial project management tool - communicating key work requirements to contractors as well as coordinating and driving work flow for the project as a whole. These processes play a key role in distinguishing W.T. Rich as a firm that consistently delivers our projects, our time, even in the face of the most daunting, fast-track schedules.
