Abstract: Five different EPC schedules, from executive to task level, have been defined and are being used in different types of projects. Still, there are no examples to address the exact definition of each schedule level and make it more understandable. In the planning and scheduling world, everyone has their own understanding of how to define and prepare certain schedule levels from different levels of available details. The challenge is to prepare higher schedule levels from lower levels by utilizing Primavera as the scheduling software of choice. In order to create different schedule levels, using level of effort (LOE) activities in a pre-built WBS structure is discussed in detail.
