Getting started with a scheduling software can be overwhelming however, most construction engineers and project managers only update existing MS Project schedule files rather than creating one from scratch. Even if a new schedule is required, starting with an existing file from a previous project is a simple ways to get a head start.

In this course we will explain the basic functionality of MS Project and the steps and functions required to revise an existing project file. Scheduling softwares have many similarities  and even if you are using a different software package, the basics methodologies are the same.
