Archived Webinar: Spotlight on RP 27R-03: Schedule Classification System and RP 37R-06: Schedule Levels of Detail

About RP 27R-03, Schedule Classification System and RP 37R-06, Schedule Levels of Detail:
The intent of RP 27R-03 is to improve the understanding and the communication among stakeholders involved with preparing, evaluating, and using project schedules. Various enterprises often misinterpret the quality and value of the information available to prepare schedules and the various methods employed during the scheduling process. It is understood that each enterprise may have its own project scheduling processes and terminology, and may classify schedules in their own particular ways. This RP provides a generic and generally acceptable classification system that can be used as a basis of comparison. If an enterprise or organization has not formally documented its own schedule classification system, then this RP can be used to provide an acceptable basis.

RP 37R-06 is intended to serve as a guideline for owners and contractors to establish a common frame of reference and understanding when describing the level of detail for any construction project schedule. This RP identifies four schedule formats based on level of detail, and provides descriptions of schedule levels and the intended use of these schedules by project participants.
