Objective

To get knowledge of software aid in construction process planning and monitoring in an integrated company management system. The knowledge should enable individual applications and solution in line with supposed allocation of the student on site in practice.

Knowledge

The students will master the objective of the course consisting in application of the knowledge from previous courses at planning and management of building contracts of various characters in a building company. This includes application and modification of items of budget estimation programs, time schedules, monitoring of costs and resources, listings of performed jobs, monitoring and evaluation of the construction realization procedure.

Syllabus

1. General options for the use of ASPE software in construction planning and management.
2. Data available for use by the ASPE system – default and adopted ÚRS price lists.
3. Dials and settings of the ASPE programme, parameters of the construction process, budgets, construction execution and time schedules.
4. Construction execution, budgets and time schedules in the ASPE environment. Creation of budgets and calculated bids, time schedule options, network graphs, critical path calculations.
5. Contract solution variants, creation of supplier variants. Documents for construction execution in the ASPE environment – work – progress, invoicing, charge orders.
6. Other ASPE options – construction phases, budget re-evaluation, large-scale changes.
7. Building production management using the RSV programme, general functionality.
8. Procedure for the implementation of the RSV system in a real construction company environment. Input data for contract management.
9. Record-keeping with regard to documentation for orders, bids and construction planning in the RSV system. Importing the budget and technology planning model for a contract, creation of sub-contractor budgets.
10. Connectivity of RSV to Microsoft Project, time scheduling and its linkage to a technology planning model. Outputs and execution of construction: list of jobs done, evaluation of costs and resources in the RSV system.
