Schedule Development-State Government

Department of Planning and Community Development – Schedule Development

The Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) has a central role in managing Victoria’s growth and development and building stronger communities.

The DPCD needed to take a range of existing project data and develop it into a single program plan for the Ringwood Upgrade Project. Based on the success of previous similar engagements, Core Consulting Group was engaged to provide leadership & guidance in the development of a high quality functioning schedule that could be handed over to DPCD for ongoing performance management.

Core Consulting Group (CCG) engaged with key DPCD Stakeholders in order to build a stronger program schedule. Drawing on existing information and a mature template from previous DPCD engagements CCG build a highly flexible schedule with a series of effective views, filter and reports to support both users and management. The work done on the schedule as well as the knowledge that was passed on regarding good scheduling procedures added value to DPCD by enabling improved forecast and time management of the Ringwood Upgrade Project.

The outcome of the engagement was that DPCD were provided with a detailed and highly functional schedule as well as increased scheduling knowledge. As a result of this work the Department of Planning and Community Development returned to CCG for a further engagement on similar suburban upgrades projects where schedule optimisation was required.
